[Intro]

[Verse]
 
Em        C
Are you a man of peace
G           D
Or a man of holy war?
Em       C
Too many sides to you
      G             D
Don't know which anymore
Em      C
So many full of life
    G                D
But also filled with pain
Em              C
Don't know just how many
     G                D
Will live to breathe again
Em            C
A life that's made to breathe
    G            D
Destruction or defense
Em            C
A mind that's vain corruption
G             D
Bad or good intent
Em        C
A wolf in sheep's clothing
   G             D
Or saintly or sinner
Em           C
Or some that would believe
  G           D
A holy war winner
 
 
Em            C
They fire off many shots
    G            D
And many parting blows
Em              C
Their actions beyond a reasoning
G              D
Only God would know
Em        C
And as he lies in heaven
   G              D
Or it could be in hell
Em          C
I feel he's somewhere here
   G              D
Or looking from below
            Am            C    D
But I don't know, I don't know
 
 
[Chorus]
 
Em
Please tell me now what life is
C                       G       D
Please tell me now what love is
Em
Well, tell me now what war is
Am                  C       D
Again, tell me what life is
 
 
[Verse]
 
Em            C            
More pain and misery in the 
G D
History of mankind
Em C Sometimes it seems more like the
G D
Blind leading the blind
Em C G It brings upon us more of famine,
D
Death and war
Em C G D You know religion has a lot to answer for [Chorus]
Em Please tell me now what life is C G D Please tell me now what love is Em Well, tell me now what war is Am C D Again, tell me what life is [Verse] Em C And as they search to find
G D
The bodies in the sand
Em C They find its ashes that are
G D
Scattered across the land
Em C And as the spirits seem to
G D
Whistle on the wind
Em C G D A shot is fired somewhere another war begins Em C G And all because of it you'd think that
D
We would learn
Em C But still the body count the
G D
City fires burn
Em C G D Somewhere there's someone dying in a foreign land Em C Meanwhile the world is
G D
Crying stupidity of man
Am Tell me why? C Tell me why? [Chorus] Em Please tell me now what life is C G D Please tell me now what love is Em Well, tell me now what war is Am C D Again, tell me what life is Em Please tell me now what life is C G D Please tell me now what love is Em Well, tell me now what war is Am C D Again, tell me what life is [Bridge] Em For the greater good of God C G D For the greater good of God Em For the greater good of God Am C D For the greater good of God Em For the greater good of God C G D For the greater good of God Em For the greater good of God Am C D For the greater good of God [Interlude] Em Em C G D Em Am C D Em C G D Em Am C D [Solo] Em G D Am G Am D Em G D Am G Am D Em Bm C G Am Bm C G Am Bm C G Am Bm C G Am Em Bm C G Am Bm C G Am Bm C G Am Bm C G Am Em C G D Em C G D Em C G D Em C G D [Chorus] Em Please tell me now what life is C G D Please tell me now what love is Em Well, tell me now what war is Am C D Again, tell me what life is Em Please tell me now what life is C G D Please tell me now what love is Em Well, tell me now what war is Am C D Again, tell me what life is [Bridge] Em For the greater good of God C G D For the greater good of God Em For the greater good of God Am C D For the greater good of God Em For the greater good of God C G D For the greater good of God Em For the greater good of God Am C D For the greater good of God [Coda] Em C He gave his life for us G D He fell upon the cross Em C To die for all of those G D Who never mourn his loss Em C It wasn't meant for us G D To feel the pain again Am Tell me why? C D Em Tell me why?
