C               G                      C

I don't believe I understand

F                              G             C

you know, I don't believe I understand

F                              G                                Em                     Am

why no-one sees the love a child will give but won't demand

F                                     G                            C      G

There's music playing here, so join the band.

 

C                                                 Em

Shake a hand, shake a hand, shake a hand

 F                                G                                C

Give out more than what they say you can

              F                       G                    Em                     Am

Put the pieces back together on a rock instead of sand

                 F                               G                     C

Help the man complete his plan, shake a hand.

 

C                               G                                C

I don't believe that peace can’t really come

F                                 G                              C

I don't believe that peace can't really come

F                               G                           Em                   Am

when every single soul can say His word is really done

F                                     G                   C    G

when life is one for all and all for one.

 

C                        G                             C

I don't believe there's any other way

F                         G                            C

I don't believe there's any other way

F                                   G                          Em                      Am

to light the darkened road that winds across another day

F                             G                       C G

except to make a stand and so I say

 

D                                                 F#m

Shake a hand, shake a hand, shake a hand

 G                               A                                D

Give out more than what they say you can

              G                       A                   F#m                     Bm

Put the pieces back together on a rock instead of sand

                 G                              A                     D

Help the man complete his plan, shake a hand.

 

E                                                 G#m

Shake a hand, shake a hand, shake a hand

 A                               B                                E

Give out more than what they say you can

              A                       B                   G#m                     Cm

Put the pieces back together on a rock instead of sand

                 A                              B                     E

Help the man complete his plan, shake a hand.
