G               C
Oh mother earth,
G
with your fields of green
Em                 D
once more laid down by the hungry hand
G  C               G
how long can you give and not recieve
D7        G
and feed this world ruled by greed
D7        G
and feed this world ruled by greed

G              C              G
oh ball of fire in the summer sky
Em
your healing light 
D
your parade of days
G     C              G
are they betrayed by the men of power
D7                      G
who hold this world in their changing hand
D7                      G
they hold the world in their changing hands

(riff)
G               C
oh freedom land
G
can you let this go
Em
down to the streets 
D
where the numbers grow
G    C
respect mother earth
G
and her giving ways
D7              G
or trade away our children's days
D7              G
or trade away our children's days
D              G    C
respect mother earth
G
and her healing ways
D               C   G
or trade away our children's days
