This is a version that sort of sounds kinda close, for one guitar... If there

is anyone out there who is, you know, competent, and is working on this song, by

all means get it done and get it posted. This is at best adequate, and only for

hacks such as myself.

 

The album version is played with a capo at the 5th fret. This is as you play it

in standard position.

Intro (spoken, over the main riff)

 

One night while sleeping in my bed I had a beautiful dream

That all the people of the world got together on the same wavelength

And began helping one another

Now in this dream universal love was the theme of the day

Peace and understanding, and it happened this way.

| E | A6 | E | A6 A6 Amaj7

The sick, the hungry, had smiles on their faces

| E | A6 | E | E

The tired and the homeless had family all around

| E | A6 | E | A6 A6 Amaj7

The streets and the cities were all beautiful places

| E | A6 | E | ...

And the walls came tumblin' down.

 

... E A / / / / / / / B / / / / EEE B...

People of the world all had it together,

... A / / / / / / / B / / / / / EEE B...

Had it together for the boys and the girls,

... A / / / / / / / B / / / / / / /...

Children of the world look forward to a future,

 

...

Remember

| E | A6 | E | A6 A6 Amaj7

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock people,

| E | A6 | E | E ...

Time's tickin' away.

 

Remember that

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock people,

Time's ticking away.

 

I had a vision of blue skies from sea to shining sea

All the trees in the forest stood strong and tall again

Everything was clean and pretty and safe for you and me,

The worst of enemies became the best of friends

 

People of the world, all had it together,

Had it together for the boys and the girls,

Children of the world look forward to a future,

 

Remember, tick tock, tick tock, tick tock people,

Time's ticking away

Remember that, tick tock, tick tock, tick tock people,

Time's tickin' away.
