The Sound Of Crying

Intro:  Dmaj7Em7

Dmaj7     Em7
Hang out the flags a new world order's on the way
Dmaj7    Em7    A/B
Start singing now a song to greet the joyful day
Gmaj7
Just when we thought the time was right for celebrating
Em7
With music of the spheres
Gmaj7
What's this - Another boat of fleeing refuges on
Em7
A sea of children's tears?

(Chorus)
ABm
Once more the sound of crying
Em7
Is number one across the earth 
ABm
Once more the sound of crying
Em7
Is number one across the earth

Dmaj7   Em7
We're only men and women doing what we can
Dmaj7Em7
Sometimes I think that god is working to a plan
Gmaj7
Then other times I swear that he is improvising
Em7
- Discordant and remote
Gmaj7
Another orphan baby in failed uprising
Em7
Another real bum note

ABm
Once more the sound of crying
Em7
Is number one across the earth 
ABm
Once more the sound of crying
Em7
Is number one across the earth
ABmEm7
Once more the sound of crying
ABmEm7
Once more the sound of crying
Dmaj7      Em7
And if you're listening up there,
Dmaj7         Em7    A/B
You could consider this a prayer

Gmaj7
Well who am I to tell you how to run your business
Em7
Man, you could strike me blind
Gmaj7
What kind of noise we gotta make down here
Em7
Before we destroy your peace of mind


ABm
Once more the sound of crying
Em7
Is number one across the earth 
ABm
Once more the sound of crying
Em7
Is number one across the earth
ABmEm7
Once more the sound of crying
ABmEm7
Once more the sound of crying
Dmaj7      Em7
And if you're listening up there,
Dmaj7         Em7    A/B
You could consider this a prayer
