[Verse 1]

G
This world looks like a chain
Em
Of heavy broken hearts . . . 
Am                        C
It chains my brothers and sisters all apart
G
Link after link
Em
It clatters thru my land
Am                       C      G
This long heavy chain of broken hearts.

G                    Em
Selfish pride is one link in this chain
Am             C
And you better drive it out of your heart – 
G                                 Em
Brother – sister when you do it’s then that you’ll get loose
Am                   C               G
From this long heavy chain of broken hearts.


[Chorus]

C                             G
It’s this long heavy chain of broken hearts
Bm                            C
It’s this long heavy chain of broken hearts
C                         Bm
You gotta find your union before you can get free
Am                   C               G   
From this long heavy chain of broken hearts.


[Verse 2]

G              Em           
Fear is a link in this chain
Am            C
Of sorrow and trouble and pain . . . 
G                       Em
Drive out your fear and you will break apart
Am               C              G
This long heavy chain of broken hearts.

G                  Em
Jealousy in a link of the worst
Am         C
A worry, a blister and a curse . . .
G                   Em
Join our union band and bring with your hands
Am              C               G
This long heavy chain of broken hearts.


[Chorus]

C                             G
It’s this long heavy chain of broken hearts
Bm                            C
It’s this long heavy chain of broken hearts
C                         Bm
You gotta find your union before you can get free
Am                   C               G   
From this long heavy chain of broken hearts.


[Verse 3]

G                 Em
It’s when you are free from this chain
Am                 C
Love will come and filled you up again
G                     Em
Show your friends and neighbors how to break away
Am                   C               G
From this long heavy chain of broken hearts.


[Chorus]

C                             G
It’s this long heavy chain of broken hearts
Bm                            C
It’s this long heavy chain of broken hearts
C                         Bm
You gotta find your union before you can get free
Am                   C               G   
From this long heavy chain of broken hearts.
