There's A War Outside Lyrics And Guitar Chords fit the McCalmans on their album ‚Honest Poverty’ with capo on 4th fret. Written by Ian McCalman with guitar work by Marc Fahrbach

There's a (G)war outside

I can (C)hear the distant (D)guns tonight,
There's a (G)war outside
And I (C)don't know whether to (D)run or fight,
(C)If I open this (D)door

I may be (G)deafened by the (C)cannon's roar,
There's a (Am)war out(D)side to(G)night.

There's a (G)child outside

I can (C)hear her crying and she's (D)so alone,
There's a (G)child outside
The first (C)refugee is the (D)last one home,
(C)If I open this (D)door

They might (G)flood in from that (C)foreign shore,
There's a (Am)child out(D)side to(G)night.

 

Chorus

(C)Everything's OK, (D)everything's fine,
Just (G)close your doors until the (C)end of time,
(Am)Satellite TV; turn (D)off the news,

Nothing but (G)bad news…(C)bad news,
And (Am)no one wants to (D7)hear another (F)bad (D7)news (G)blues.

There's a (G)war outside
We don't (C)need to know who's (D)right or wrong,

There's a (G)war outside
The (C)sirens sing their (D)warning song,
(C)Tired and hungry in the (D)hand-out line,

The (G)wrong place at the (C)wrong time,
There's a (Am)war out(D)side to(G)night.

There's a (G)war outside

And the (C)guns are closer than they (D)were last night,
There's a (G)war outside
And I (C)don't know whether to (D)run or fight,
(C)If I open this (D)door

I may be (G)deafened by the (C)cannon's roar,
There's a (Am)war out(D)side to(G)night.

 

Repeat Chorus
