What Will We Tell The Children Lyrics and chords as played by the Dubliners. I couldn't find out who wrote this song. If anybody knows please let me know. The chords are by Marc who says that apart from Brother John this is the easiest song you'll ever play on the guitar with just one Major chord through the whole song basically.


(D)Which way will the branch bend
When there's no wind left to blow
Which way will the river run
When there's no where left to (G)go

Chorus
(G)What do we tell the (D)children
When they start to ask us why
And where are the keepers
Who bled the whole thing dry
(
D)What kind of air are we to breath
When there's none to take in
What kind of soil do we turn over
Where the fallout's (G)been

Chorus

(D)When do you think they'll tell us
Don't they know that we know too
When do you think they'll listen
To the likes of me and (G)you

Chorus
Bridge: instrumental verse + instrumental chorus

(D)And what kind of rain will fall
On a land that's dead and gone
And what kind of flowers
Will look up for the (G)sun

Chorus

What (D)colour will the leaves be
A darker shade of brown
Is this the kind of legacy
To leave to the un(G)born

Chorus

(D)Which way will the branch bend
When there's no wind left to blow
Which way will the river run
When there's no where left to (G)go
Chorus
(D)And where are the keepers
Who bled the whole thing dry
