{Am     E†††††††† No more weapons of war.     repeat...}


Am     E††††††††† Weapons of war, ††††††† what a bloody waste you are.
Am†††† E†††††††††
All you do is harm †††† and bring horror.
F†† C†† E††††††††† We donít ††††††† want you ††††††† here no more.
Am†††† E††††††††† Weapons of war, ††††††† you were forged in
Am†††† E††††††††† Sauronís den ††††††††††††† where Mordor sprung
F   C   E††††††††† from †† Middle ††††††††††† Earth
Am†††† E††††††††† comes the sound ††††††† of the black ringwraith
Am†††† E††††††††† petrifying all ††††††††††††† in his way
F   C   E††††††††† fear †††† is the weapon of war but
F   C   F   C††† we wonít fear, ††††††††††† fear no more †† weapons of
Am  A†††††††††††† war. ††† ††††††††††† No
Dm  Bb†††††††††† more †† ††††††††††† weapons of
F      C†††††††††††† war. ††† ††††††††††† No
E      A††††††††††† more †† ††††††††††† weapons of war.

Am†††† E††††††††† Weapons of war †††††††† donít you come back for more.
Am†††† E†††††††††
You have killed enough †††††††† and destroyed us!
F   C   E††††††††† We donít ††††††† want you ††††††† here no more.
Am†††† E††††††††† Weapons of war †††††††† know what weíd have by now if
Am†††† E††††††††† what we gave toward war ††††† we used to plough and
F   C   E††††††††† plant †† seeds for †††††††† little Earth where we
Am†††† E††††††††† banned all bombs††††††† and melted down the guns
Am†††† E††††††††† into ploughshares †††††† until there were none. Where
Am†††† E†††††††††
tear and nerve gas ††††† became a thing of the past. Now the
Am†††† E††††††††† future we see ††††††††††††† we know will last. Where

Am†††† E†††††††††
torture and †††† intimidation ††† are
Am†††† E††††††††† no more than a tickling for fun. Where
Am†††† E†††††††††
flamethrower destruction †††††† finally ends, and the
Am†††† E††††††††† Fellowship has made it ††††††††† past the rubble and remains of the

Am†††† E†††††††††
tanks and planes. ††††††† ††††††††††† They no longer shoot living things.
Am†††† E††††††††† Instead we dance together †††† and together we sing Ďcause
Am†††† E†††††††††
submarines †††† and every other ††††††††† war machine are
Am†††† E††††††††† dismantled and removed ††††††† away from the scene

Am†††† E†††††††††
along with land mines ††††††††††† and those punished for war crimes to
Am†††† E††††††††† insure we wonít repeat, ††††††††† NO, ††† those dreadful times! Now
F   C   E††††††††† we wonít fear †††††††††††† weapons of war.
F   C   F   C††† we wonít fear †††††††††††† fear no more †† weapons of
Am  A†††††††††††† war. ††† ††††††††††† No
Dm  Bb†††††††††† more †† ††††††††††† weapons of
F      C†††††††††††† war. ††† ††††††††††† No
E      A††††††††††† more †† ††††††††††† weapons of war.
