I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing

By The New Seekers

[Verse 1]
SAFE AND SOUND
F
I'd like to teach the world to sing Em Bm G D x2
G
In perfect harmony
C [Verse]
I'd like to hold it in my arms
A# F
And keep it company I remember tears streaming down your face
When I said, I'll never let you go
When all those shadows almost killed your
[Verse 2] light
I remember you said, Don't leave me here a -
F lone
I'd like to see the world for once But all that's dead and gone and passed
G tonight
All standing hand in hand
C
And hear them echo through the hills [Chorus]
A# F
For peace throughout the land Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You'll be alright
[Verse 3] No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
F You and I'll be safe and sound
I'd like to build the world a home
G
And furnish it with love [Instrumental]
C
Growin' apple trees and honey bees Em Bm G D x2
A# F
And snow white turtle doves
[Verse]

Don't you dare look out your window
I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing Darling everything's on fire
By The New Seekers The war outside our door keeps raging on
Hold on to this lullabye
[Verse 1] Even when the music's gone. Gone.

F
I'd like to teach the world to sing [Chorus]
G
In perfect harmony Just close your eyes
C The sun is going down
I'd like to hold it in my arms You'll be alright
A# F No one can hurt you now
And keep it company Come morning light
You and I'll be safe and sound

[Verse 2]

For peace throughout the land You'll be alright
Come morning light
You and I'll be safe and sound
[Verse 3]

I'd like to build the world a home
