capo 3
Love is but a song we sing A
And fear’s the way we die —–G
You can make the mountains ring A
Or make the angels cry —–G
Though the bird is on the wing A
And you may not know why —–G
Chorus: C’mon people now D
Smile on your brother E
Ev’rybody get together A
Try to love one another right now D E A

Verse 2:
Some will come and some will go A
We shall surely pass —–G
When the one that left us here A
Returns for us at last—–G
We are but a moment’s sunlight A
Fading in the grass —–G

Verse 3: If you hear the song I sing, you will understand A / G
You hold the key to love and fear in your trembling hand A / G
Just one key unlocks them both, it’s there at your command A/G
