Verse 1: Dmaj7 Dmaj7 Ah, me rcy, mercy me, Bm7 Bm7 Em7 Ah, things ain't what they used to be, no, no. Em7 Where did all the blue skies go? Gmaj7 Gmaj7 Poison is the wind that blows from the north and south and east. Verse 2: Mercy, mercy me, Ah, things ain't what they used to be, no, no. Oil wasted on the ocean and upon our seas fish full of mercury, Verse 3: Oh, mercy, mercy me. Ah, things ain't what they used to be, no, no, no. Radiation underground and in the sky; animals and birds who live near by are dying. Verse 4: Oh, mercy, mercy me. Ah, things ain't what they used to be. What about this over crowded land? How much more abuse from man can she stand?
