Verse 1:
-------

E                           A7
There's somethin' happenin' here.
        E                A7
What it is ain't exactly clear.
          E                   A7
There's a man with a gun over there
          E                   A7
A-tellin' me I've got to beware.


Chorus 1:

                    [E              Dsus2]
I think it's time we stop children, what's that sound
[A                      Asus4]      E    A    E    A
Everybody look what's goin' down.


Verse 2:
-------

There's battle lines bein' drawn.
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong.
Young people speakin' their minds
A-gettin' so much resistance from behind.


Chorus 2: (Lead Guitar)

E                           [A    Asus4]
What a field day for the     heat.
E                           [A   A7sus4]
A thousand people in the     street
E                           [A   A7sus4]
Singin' songs and a-carryin' signs
E                           [A   A7sus4]
Mostly sayin' hooray for our side.
