Am chordAm
If it's true what they say
F chordF
If there's nothing to be done
Em chordEm
If it's true that it's too late
F chordF
And the girl I loved is gone
Am chordAm
If it's true what they say
F chordF
Is this how the world is
Em chordEm G chordG
To be beaten and betrayed and then be told that nothing changes
F chordF
It'll always be like this

Am chordAm F chordF
If it's true what they say
Am chordAm F chordF
I'll be on my way

And the boy turned to go
Cause he thought no one could hear
But everybody knows that walls have ears

F chordF
And the workers heard him
Am chordAm
If its true what they say
F chordF
With their hammers swinging
Am chordAm
Whats the purpose of a man
Em chordEm
And they quit their working
Am chordAm
Just to turn his eyes away
F chordF
When they heard him singing
Am chordAm F chordF
Just to throw up both his hands

No hammer swinging
Am chordAm
whats the use of his backbone
F chordF
No pickax ringing
Am chordAm
if he never stands upright
Em chordEm
And they stood and listened
Am chordAm
If he turns his back on everyone
F chordF
to the poor boy singing
F chordF
that he could've stood beside



Am chordAm C chordC F chordF
If it's true what they say
Am chordAm F chordF
I'll be on my way
Am chordAm F chordF
But who are they to say
Em chordEm Am chordAm
What the truth is anyway

Am chordAm F chordF
Cause the ones who tell the lies
F chordF
Are the solemnest to swear
Em chordEm
And the ones who load the dice
F chordF
Always say the toss is fair
Am chordAm
And the ones who deal the cards
Deal the cards
F chordF
Are the ones who take the tricks
Em chordEm
With their hands over their hearts
F chordF
While we play the game they fix
Am chordAm
And the ones who speak the words
Speak the words
F chordF
Always say it is the last
Em chordEm
And no answer will be heard
F chordF
To the question no one asks

F chordF
So Im asking if its true
F chordF Am chordAm
Im asking me and you and you and you
G chordG
I believe our answer matters more than anything they say
We stand stand and listen

G chordG
I believe if there is still a will
Em chordEm
Then there is still a way
We're standing with him

Em chordEm
I believe there is a way
G chordG
I believe in us together
Am chordAm
More than anyone alone
We're standing near him

Am chordAm
I believe that with each other
F chordF
we are stronger than we know
We hear him

F chordF G chordG
I believe we're stronger than they know
Am chordAm
I believe that we are many
F chordF
I believe that they are few
We're standing
Em chordEm
And it isn't for the few
Am chordAm F chordF
To tell the many what is true
We understand him


Am chordAm
So I ask you
F chordF
If It's true what they say
We're standing

Em chordEm
I'll be on my way
F chordF
Tell me what to do
G chordG Em chordEm
Is it true Is it true what they say
