Third World Blues
©2004 Garrett Clevenger
E Am Bm Youve heard me say, Ive
had my heart break.
E Am Bm Ive felt my soul stuck with a stake.
E Am Bm I know you know how much youll moan
E Am Bm when your babys left you alone.
E Am Bm Theres a cure to heal you head.
E Am Bm Youll realize it aint so bad.
E Am Bm Take a trip down to the Third World.
E Am Bm Youll see their sadness hurt and unfurl.
C D We dont know their Third World blues.
C D They dont got our things to loose.
C D Who would choose their real abuse? Know.
C D D# We dont want their Third World blues.
E Am Bm Cardboard shacks and rusted roofs
E Am Bm Shelter far from weatherproof.
E Am Bm Oily water and dirty air.
E Am Bm Scattered trash with their dispair.

E Am Bm 6 million children go hungry tonight.
E Am Bm Innocent yet payin the price.
E Am Bm Do they know just how really poor
E Am Bm your heart feels since it was tore?
E Am Bm Ive heard their cries. Ive seen their sad eyes.
E Am Bm If they explode its no surprise.
E Am Bm What would you do if you were them?
E Am Bm Would you see me as your friend?
E Am Bm What can we do? What can we say?
E Am Bm Will our Love take that away?
E Am Bm While we may be left alone tonight,
E Am Bm theyll all awake to the same sad plight
