Intro:  / G - - - / C - D7sus4 - /


G                                   C          G
Broken windows and the empty hallways,
G                Em                C      D7               G
Pale-dead  moon and the sky streaked with gray.
Bm        Em         Am7  G6/B  C         A7
Human kindness is o  -  ver     flowing,
           Em         A7        C          G 
And I think it's going to rain to-day.

 

/ G - - - / C - D7sus4 - /

G                                       C        G
Scarecrows dressed in the latest stylings,

           G        Em        C      D7     G
With frozen smiles to chase love away.

Bm        Em           Am7  G6/B  C  A7
Human kindness is o  -  ver     flowing,
           Em         A7        C          G 
And I think it's going to rain to-day.

G    F    G     F     Bb    Dm

Lonely

Gm
Tin can at my feet,
D#
Think I'll kick it down the street,
Bb                                 G                        
That's no way to treat a friend.

/ C - Bb - /   

G                       C           G
Right before the signs implore me,

G             Em     C      D7           G
Help the needy, show them the way.
Bm        Em           Am7  G6/B  C  A7
Human kindness is o  -  ver     flowing,
           Em         A7        C          G 
And I think it's going to rain to-day.
