                      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

                      G                       D                     G (2)

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

     

                      C (2)                                        G (2)

    I hear the sounds of tearing pages and the roar of burning paper

                 D (2)                                   G (2)

    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
