[Verse 1]

D           G D

When I was 17

               Em

I saw a magazine

             D#            D

It had those English Boys

                G   D

Who had long hair

           G          D

When I was on my own

              G

They moved into my town

           Em              D

And I just called them up

                  G

And they'd be there

G        D

In 1969

                Em

I had a lousy time

           D#           D

I listened to the songs

              G              D

Read letters sent from Nam

D             G                 D

Now peace and love were gone

           G

The tired soldiers home

        Em      D

Ideal society

                 G

Gunned down the 70s

        C                  D

Does it feel the same to you?

            C               D

Why do you act the way you do?

        C               D

Pack it up or pack it in

                Em

There's no excuse

[Chorus]

          C                   D

Could the hands of time reverse?

          C                  D

Would we wake or take the ride

    C                        D

And again speak with one voice?

D# Em D# Em D# D

[Verse 2]

D            G           D

We knew each other well

            Em

Although we never met

         D#             D

Messages passed to tell

            G  D

Equal respect

D                  G   D

Coincidence recurred

          G

I had to laugh a lot

          Em             D

One week hung up superb

             G

Said maybe not

[Chorus]

        C                  D

Does it feel the same to you?

            C               D

Why do you act the way you do?

        C               D

Pack it up or pack it in

                Em

There's no excuse

          C                  D

Would we wake or take the ride

And again speak with one voice?
