A                            Bm               A
A billion people died on the news tonight 
                             Bm
But not so many cried at the terrible sight 
           A
Well mama said 
                        C#m
It's just make believe 
                                      Bm
You can't believe everything you see 
                                       D           Dm
So baby close your eyes to the lullabies 
        A                     Bm
On the news tonight 
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/j/johnson_jack/news_crd_ver_2.html ]
A                                    Bm           A
Who's the one to decide that it would be alright 
                            Bm
To put the music behind the news tonight 
            A
Well mama said 
                                         C#m
You can't believe everything you hear 
                              Bm
The diagetic world is so unclear 
                          D        Dm
So baby close your ears 
             Bm
On the news tonight 
               F#m
On the news tonight 
Bm                                 F#m
The unobtrusive tones on the news tonight 
                  A              
And mama said 
E
Mmm 

A                                                    Bm               
Why don't the newscasters cry when they read about people who die 
A                                                   Bm   
At least they could be decent enough to put just a tear in their eyes 
        A
Mama said 
                        C#m
It's just make believe 

You cant believe everything you see 
Bm                                       D         Dm
So baby close your eyes to the lullabies 
           A                    Bm             A
On the news tonight

This is my first tab, so go easy on me if you notice any flaws.  
Listen to the song for the timing.  Thanks K-C, and Chris for getting
me started on guitar, and helpin a brother out when needed.  Much Love.
Later, Jake.
