Song Progression:

[Riff 1] x2

With [Riff 1]:

Her face is cracked from smiling,
all the fears that she's been hiding,
and it seems that pretty soon
evr'ybody's gonna know.

And her voice is sore from shouting,
cheering winners who are losing,
and she wonders if their days are few
and soon they'll have to go.

[Riff 1] once more, then

With [Riff 2]: (chords shown here for reference)

C G
My, my, my, I'm so happy,
Bb F
I'm gonna join the band.
C G
We are gonna dance and sing in celebration,
Bb F E
we are in the promised land.

With [Riff 1]:

She hears them talk of new ways
to protect the home she lives in,
Then she wonders what it's all about
when they break down the door.
Her name is Brown or White or Black;
you know her very well.
You hear her cries of mercy
as the winners toll the bell.

With [Riff 2]:

My, my, my, I'm so happy,
I'm gonna join the band.
We are gonna sing and dance in celebration,
we are in the promised land.

With [Riff 1]:

There is a train that leaves the station
heading for your destination,
But the price you pay to nowhere
has increased a dollar more. Yes, it has!
And if you walk you're gonna get there
although it takes a little longer,
And when you see it in the distance
you will wring your hands and moan.

Repeat [Riff 1] until fade out
