(D)Looking 'round the land,
that (F#m)once belonged to him.
The (G)looking wasn't
(D)easy, there was (G)nothing there but (D)sin
He cried out to the heavens,
(F#m)nearly broke his heart.
Oh (G)look at what they've
(D)done, torn my (G)land a(D)part.
Oh (G)Lord save the (D)land, Oh (G)Lord save my
Oh (G)Lord save the (D)land, and (G)all your (A)children,
(D)See them fighting, (F#m)dying
in the streets,
See (G)all your (D)little
babies, with (G)nothing more to (D)eat
Oh Lord shine a light,
(F#m)shine a light on me,
I (G)know it isn't (D)easy,
that's the (G)way it's got to (D)be.
What (D)happened to the
forest, (F#m)where the red deer run,
(G)Why is a family
(D)crying, for their (G)one and only (D)son,
The cruel black smoke is
rising, though (F#m)sun is shining through.
Now (G)cry beloved
(D)country, what are we (G)going to (D)do?
