          |E (with riff)          |
People are suffering, I'll say it again
People are suffering, I'll say it again
People are suffering, I'll say it again
    |E                             |Emaj7  
So remember when you're looking for trouble 
    |  D5/E                                  |
That trouble is already busy with weaker men
          |E (with riff)      |
People are hungry, I'll say it again
People are hungry, I'll say it again
People are hungry, I'll say it again
  |E                    Emaj7      |C/E                               |
So don't you abuse that body, it'll stop without assistance, my friends

|F                                        |            
 Song goes on
          (I'll sing again until the music enervates)
 Song goes on
          (The sting of pain will dull and finally fade away)
This song goes on
              (Through centuries of history it reverberates)
This song goes on
              (On curving comets track the music makes it way)

|Bb   F       C  G      |D       A        E(vii) B\   |
 This song is so long it ends up where it be-----gins

E (with riff)

People are lonely, I'll say it again
People are lonely, I'll say it again
People are lonely, I'll say it again
So don't let 'em run too far from home
You'll be alone for sure, on that you can depend

   .  .  .  .  .  .  .  . 
||:E  EE G D      E EE D  :||

People are bleeding, I'll say it again
People are bleeding, I'll say it again
People are bleeding, I'll say it again
So put away that switch blade knife
And tighten the knot that'll help this bloodshed end

Song goes on, Song goes on, Song goes on, Song goes on
This song is so long, it ends up where it begins

People are suffering, I'll say it again and again and again and again
People are hungry, I'll say it again and again and again 
People are lonely, I'll say it again and again and again and again...
I'll say it again...
