lyrics

We Are The People

Am / / / G / / /
We The People of this land
F / / / E / / /
Have come together, to take a stand
Am / / / C / / /
Against the forces of fear and greed
F / / / E / / /
That are threatening our Democracy

Am / / / C / / /
One – We are The People Two – We are united
Dm / / / E / / /
Three – we are not scared, we are not tired
Am / / / C / / /
One – We are The People Two – We are united
Dm / / / E / / /
Three – we’re marching and we are on fire

Am / / / G / / /
We who struggle to keep our feet
F / / / E / / /
While senators suckle the teet
Am / / / C / / /
Of CEOs and money friends
F / / / E / / /
Whose generosity knows no ends

Chorus

Am / / / G / / /
They play the left side against the right
F / / / E / / /
Play the brown folks against the white
Am / / / C / / /
They sell us fear tell us to fight
F / / / E / / /
But we’re stronger together, so let’s unite!

Chorus

Am / / / G / / /
All you soldiers, plumbers and preachers
F / / / E / / /
Farmers, nurses, students, waitresses and teachers
Am / / / C / / /
Tea Party throwers and Occupiers
F / / / E / / /
We won’t be fooled or ruled by liars we are one

Chorus

Am / / / G / / F / / / E / / /
In Clayton in Clinton in Dayton in Franklin in Madison and Greenfield
Am / / / G / / F / / / E / / /
In Little Rock, Plymouth Rock, Standing Rock, Rocky Top, Washington and Springfield
Am / / / G / / /
From up in Portland to New Orleans
F / / / E / / /
Houston, Boston, Miami, Birmingham and Queens.

Many of these songs will make you jump around, but some swaying may also occur. If you are not devoid of basic decency, then you will most likely turn up the volume upon playing this so called record. There are no guarantees.
