(capo 1st fret)

Well I wonder what would happen to this world...


          G
Now if a man tried to take his time on earth

            C                            A7
And prove before he died what one man's life could be worth

        G6                D7            C   G
Well I wonder what would happen to this world


           G
And if a woman she used her life line

              C                      A7
As something more than some man's servant, mother, wife time

         G6                D7           C   G

C                                  Em7
As I look around me there's some strange things

          D7
There's muggers and there's jugglers

G7
We are lead by clowns

        C
If an answer ever found us

           Em7
Would we change things?

   D7                           Em
Or are we just a people rotten ready for the ground


             G
And if our future lies on the final line

         C                       A7
Are we brave enough to see the signals and the signs

    G                 D7           C   G
I wonder what would happen to this world


             G
We see the people, we see them marchin' down

       C                       A7
Do we join the parade or do we try and turn around

         G6                D7           C   G
Well I wonder what would happen to this world


            G
Oh well I wonder...

        G7
Yes I wonder...

             C
What would happen....

             A7             G
What would happen to this world...

         G6                D7           C   G
Well I wonder what would happen to this world...


   C
Disciple children walk the streets 

 Em7
Selling books and flowers

D7                                   G7
Can they be the last ones with a semblance of a dream

       C
If we say that no one's out there

       Em7
And we say we're goin' no where

    D7                         Em
Can we avoid the question "Is this all that it means?"


          G
Now if a man tried to take his time on earth

            C                            A7
And prove before he died what one man's life could be worth

        G6                D7            C   G
Well I wonder what would happen to this world


           G
Oh well I wonder...

Yes I wonder..

             C
What would happen....

             A7
What would happen to this world...

         C6                D7           C   G
Well I wonder what would happen to this world...

Yes I wonder what would happen to this world
