bring our heroes home with their heads held high

VERSE 2[same as above]
No more mountaintops removed
we want it green & clean because oil is crude
No more frankenseeds or food shipped from overseas
Local Farms harvest security
No more leaders will we elect
who let a city drown in their neglect
No more payoffs on Wallstreet
No more layoffs on Mainstreet
No more foreclosing the American Dream

What began as a whisper
has now swelled into a chorus
that cannot be ignored
it will ring out across this land
as a hymn to heal this nation
and repair this world

& though the path may be hard
         F#m                     D
it's a journey we must start
                                 A               E
It must start in your Heart with Love
          F#m                       D
& the Faith we can rise above
                  A                   E
& in our Souls with the Peace
                          F#m                       D
We can be the Change we want to see
                   A      E               F#m D
