Eb Dm C


C               F      C
Torn from their families
F                C
Mothers go hungry
Em                  Am7 
To feed their children
       F               G
But children go hungry
            C     F       C 
There's so many big men
             F              C
They're out making millions
          Em          Am7
When poverty's profits
F                    G                  Eb Dm
Just blame the children


                 Am 
If there's a God in heaven
                 C
What's he waiting for
        F                  Am7
If he can't hear the children
             F                 G
Then he must see the war
             Am
But it seems to me
             C 
That he leads his lambs
            Eb         Dm
To the slaughter house
                   Eb Dm     C
And not the promised land


Dying for causes
They don't understand
We've been taking their futures 
Right out of their hands
They need the handouts
To hold back the tears
There's so many crying
But so few that hear

                 Am                      C
If there's a God in heaven
                       Am                   G
Well, what's he waiting for
                 Am                     C Eb Dm
If there's a God in heaven
                Eb Dm C
What's he waiting for
