People help the people    (video)

 

    F - Am     - F - Am

 

       F                                                 Am

1. God knows what is hiding in that weak and drunken heart,

                        G

    I guess you kissed the girls and made them cry,

      F

    those hardfaced Queens of misadventure.

       F                                                    Am

    God knows what is hiding in those weak and sunken eyes,

                   G                                          F

    a fiery throng of muted angels giving love and getting nothing back.

 

    F                     Am

People help the people,

                       G                                                        F

and if you’re homesick, give me your hand and I'll hold it.

   F                      Am                                   G

People help the people, and nothing will drag you down.

             Dm  C        F                 Dm  C         F

Oh, and if I had a brain, oh, and if I had a brain,

           Dm           C            F

I'd be cold as a stone and rich as the fool

       Dm                       E                   F

that turned all those good hearts away.

 

       F                                                Am

2. God knows what is hiding in that world of little consequence,

         G                                                  F

    behind the tears, inside the lies, a thousand slowly dying sunsets.

      F                                                     Am

    God knows what is hiding in those weak and drunken hearts,

                       G

    I guess the loneliness came knocking,

                    F

    no one needs to be alone, oh, save me.
