Verse 1:
Am
I've wept for those who suffer long

But how I weep for those who've gone

Into rooms of grief and questioned wrong
                    Dsus4
But keep on killing

Verse 2:
Am
It's in the soul to feel such things

But weak to watch without speaking

Oh what mercy sadness brings
                 Dsus4         Am
If God be willing        (Riff 1)

Chorus:
Am/B       C
There is a train that's heading straight
C/B              Am        Am/B     C
To heaven's gate, to heaven's gate
C/B            C
And on the way, child and man
C/B              Am    Am/B       D
And woman wait, watch and wait
                         Am
For redemption day

Verse 3:
Am
The fire rages in the streets

And swallows everything it meets

It's just an image often seen
              Dsus4
On television

Verse 4:
Am
Come leaders, come you men of great

Let us hear you pontificate

Your many virtues laid to waste
                       Dsus4        Riff 1
And we aren't listening

Verse 5: (Different)
Am                Dsus4            C      Am
What do you have for us today
Am              Dsus4                 C        Am
Throw us a bone but saw the plate
Am              Dsus4          C        Am
Oh why we waited til so late
Am                                    Dsus4
Was there no oil to excavate

No riches in trade for the fate

Of every person who died in hate
                                    C         Am
Throw us a bone, you men of great

Chorus:
Am/B       C
There is a train that's heading straight
C/B              Am   Am/B         C
To heaven's gate, to heaven's gate
C/B            C
And on the way, child and man
C/B              Am    C              Dsus4
And woman wait, watch and wait
                         Am        Riff 1
For redemption day

Verse 6:
Am            C                   Dsus4      Am
It's buried in the countryside
Am            C                     Dsus4
Exploding in the shells of night
Am
It's everywhere a baby cries
Dsus4      Am          Dsus4      Am
Freedom, freedom, freedom, freedom

Ends on Am
