Intro:

Am Am G7 G7 (x2)

Verse 1:

Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
Until the phi-losophy, which hold one race su-perior,
Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
And a-nother; in-ferior.
Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
Is finally, and permanently,
Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
Dis-credited, and a-bandoned,
Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
Everywhere is war, me say war.

Verse 2:

Am Am G7 G7 Am Am
That until there no longer, first class,
G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
And second class citizens, of any nation.
Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
Until the colour of a man's skin, is of no more signifi-cance,
Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
Than the colour of his eyes; me say war.

Verse 3:

Am Am G7 G7
That until the basic human rights,
Am Am G7 G7
Are equally guaranteed to all,
Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
Without regard to race; dis a-war.
Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
That until that day, the dream of lasting peace,
Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
World citizen-ship, rule of inter-national mo-rality,
Am Am G7 G7
Will re-main in but a fleeting il-lusion,
Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
To be pur-sued, but never at-tained,
Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
Now everywhere is war. War.

Verse 4:

Am Am G7 G7 Am Am
And until the ig-noble, and un-happy regimes,
G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
That hold our brothers in An-gola, in Mozambique,
Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
South Africa, subhuman bondage,
Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
Have been toppled, utterly des-troyed,
Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
Well, everywhere is war, me say war.

Bridge 1:

Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
War in the East, war in the West.
Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
War up North, war down South.
Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
War, war, rumours of war.

Verse 5:

Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
And until that day, the African conti-nent,
Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
Will not know peace, we Africans will fight.
Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
We find it necessary, and we know we shall win,
Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
As we are confident, in the victory, of good over evil.

Coda:

Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
Good over evil, yeah! Good over evil.
Am Am G7 G7 Am Am G7 G7
Good over evil, yeah! Good over evil.

Outro:

Am Am G7 G7
