Tears Of The World – George Harrison Piano, Guitar, Ukulele Chord/Tab and Lyric
Artist: George Harrison
Album/Category: Other Songs




War mongers—terrorize us all,
Our leaders h[F/C]eed us to their call.
Stone–-wallin, voices calling,
Drowning in the tears of the [Dm—A7]world.


Big business calling ev'ry tune,
Polluting h[F/C]ere and to the moon.
All—--nations, conservations,
Drowning in the tears of the world.


But your lives worth saving,
We should start behaving
Like the truth's been told by saviours through our time.
Your downfall, you'll bring it on yourselves.


All warnings fall upon deaf ears,
Their scorn comp[F/C]ounding my worst fears.
Bbmaj.7 A7 F A7
No way out, hopeless souls shout,
Drowning in the tears of the [Dm—-A7]world.



(Drowning in the tears of the world)
Tears of the world.



Where's your love been sleeping?
Has your heart been weeping
Over all unrighteous action in the world
Where bad jazz seems all they're laying down?


No use in turning your blind eye,
You feel the h[F/C]eat as you fry.

Try—--your best, you'll find no rest,
Drowning in the tears of the [Dm—-/C]world.


It's a sure bet, each pays his debts,
Drowning in the tears of the w[Dm—A7]orld.

Dm——A7 (Repeat to fade)
