Redemption Day

Sheryl Crow

   Ami
1. 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
   
2. It's in the soul to feel such things
   But weak to watch without speaking
   Oh what mercy sadness brings
   If God be willing 

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

3. The fire rages in the streets
   And swallows everything it meets
   It's just an image often seen
   On television
   
4. Come leaders, come you men of great
   Let us hear you pontificate
   Your many virtues laid to waste  
   And we aren't listening

*1: What do you have for us today 
    Ami         Dsus4   C           Ami
    Throw us a bone but saw the plate 
    Ami          Dsus4  C     Ami
    Oh why we waited til so late
    Ami                       Dsus4
    Was there no oil to excavate
    No riches in trade for the fate
    Of every person who died in ate
                                  C Ami
    Throw us a bone, you men of great
