[verse]
|E                |F#7/5sus4/E  |
    Now I'm in the ether

|A5sus4/E       |A5sus4/E       |
    Look down at time

|E             |F#7/5sus4/E      
    I see three children

  |A5sus4/E        |A5sus4/E    |
Prepare to walk the line

|E5            |E5/Eb           |
     I see them older      

|Cadd9           |Cadd9+5  Cadd9+4   Cadd9   Cadd9+4|
     When life is done                               

|D          |D        |
     I was a loser

|Asus2               |Asus2           
     At the game they won

[chorus]
    |A5add2/E       |D5          D5/C#   D5 |
Come on let's try to pick up the peace
                    [optional passing riff]

| A5add2/E       |D5        D5/C#    |
 You and I on our hands and knees

    | A5add2/E      |D7add2   D7add2     |D7add2/C#   |D7add2/C#   |
Come on let's try to pick up, pick up the peace

Come on let's try to touch the fleece
You and I on our hands and knees
Come on let's try to pick up, pick up the peace

[outro]
|D            |Dsus2/C#        |Dsus2/C               |Dsus2/C     |
    How do old people forget       that the wars we've seen

|D               |G/B                 |
     Are about me longing for you

|Cadd9               |Cadd9+5   Cadd9   |Cadd9+5       |
      You longing for me?

|Cadd9               |Cadd9            |Cadd9
      You longing for me?
