                  C (2)                                 G (2)         

I hear the crying of the hungry in the deserts where they're wandering

                       D (2)                                   G (2)

Yeah, they're crying out for heaven’s own benevolence upon them

                  C (2)                                          G (2)

I hear destructive power prevailing, I hear fools falsing hailing

             G                      D                          Em  C

To the crooked words of tyrants when they call

All the crimes and acquisition turn to air and ash and paper

              C (2)                                  G (2)

And the rabble of the shackle fall behind the emancipator

       G             D                     Em  C

And lowliest together in their stalls

                  G                       D                     G (2)

I hear them all, I hear them all, I hear them all

 

                         C (2)                                         G (2)

So while you're sitting, whistle Dixie with your money and your power

                        D (2)                             G (2)

I can hear the flowers a growing in the rubble of the towers

            C (2)                                      G (2)

I hear leaders quit their lying, I hear babies quit their crying

           G                         D                  Em  C

I hear soldiers quit their dying one and all

                   G                     D                      G (2)

I hear them all, I hear them all, I hear them all

 

                  C (2)                                        G (2)

I hear the tender words from Zion, I hear Noah's waterfall

               D (2)                                     G (2)

hear the gentle lamb of Judah sleeping at the feet of Buddah

                C (2)                               G (2)

And the prophets from Elijah to the old Payute Wovoka

                  G               D                             Em  C

Take their places at the table when they're called

                   G                      D                     G (2)

I hear them all, I hear them all, I hear them all   

                   G                      D                     Em  C

I hear them all, I hear them all, I hear them all

                        G                      D               / G - - - / - - (hold) /

I hear them all, I hear them all, I hear them all
