If I Had A Hammer
Peter, Paul, and Mary

           A                             A
If I had a hammer, I'd hammer in the morning,
                  A                      E7
I'd hammer in the evening, all over this land,
                A   -A7                 D      D7
I'd hammer out danger, I'd hammer out a warning,
                   D      A        D               A
I'd hammer out the love between my brothers and my sisters
D-A-E7        A      E7
All over this land.  Oh, oh . . .
 
           A                             A
If I had a bell, I'd ring it in the morning,
                   A                      E7
I'd ring it in the evening, all over this land,
             A    -A7               D       D7
I'd ring out danger, I'd ring out a warning,
                 D      A        D               A
I'd ring out the love between my brothers and my sisters
D-A-E7        A      E7
All over this land.  Oh, oh . . .
 
           A                             A
If I had a song, I'd sing it in the morning,
                   A                      E7
I'd sing it in the evening, all over this land,
             A    -A7               D      D7
I'd sing out danger, I'd sing out a warning,
                 D      A        D               A
I'd sing out the love between my brothers and my sisters
D-A-E7        A      E7
All over this land.  Oh, oh . . .
 
             A                      A
Now I have a hammer, and I have a bell.
             A                          E7
And I have a song to sing all over this land.
                   A     -A7                 D      D7
It's the hammer of justice, it's the bell of freedom,
                      D      A        D               A
It's a song about the love between my brothers and my sisters
D-A-E7        A
All over this land.
