Verse 1:
e            D       A         e
They torture all the women and children
e            D       A          e
Then they've put the men to the gun
e     D         A     e
'Cuz across the human frontier,
e         D      A      e
Freedom's always on the run

Chorus 1:
e,e,e,e
       Guns guns- A-shaking in terror
e,e,e,e

       Guns guns- Guilty hands
e,e,e,e
       Guns guns- Shatter the lands

Verse 2:
e,e,e,e
       A system built by the sweat of the many
e,e,e,e
       Creates assassins to kill off the few
e        D         A         e
Take any place and call it a court house
e         D           A            e
This is a place where no judge can stand

Verse 3:
e,e,e,e
       Sue the lawyers and burn all the papers
e,e,e,e
       Unlock the key of the legal papers
e      D    A       e
A jury of a billion faces
e       D      A             e
Shouted out condemned out of hand

Chorus 2:
e    D         A        e
Guns guns- And nobody's kidding
e    D        A        e
Guns guns- Or foolin' around
e    D         A           e
Guns guns- The violence is singing

Guns guns- A silence the sound
