B F# B F# The ink is black, the page is white, B E F# together we learn to read and write. B F# B F# A child is black, a child is white; B E F# the whole world looks upon the sight, B E B a beautiful sight. ÇBRIDGE: F# B And now a child can understand F# that this is the law of all the land, F# E Eb C# all the land. VERSE: B F# B F# The world is black, the world is white. B E F# It turns by day, and turns by night. B F# B F# A child is black, a child is white, B E F# together they grow to see the light, B E B to see the light. BRIDGE: F# B And now, at last, we plainly see F# the alphabet of liberty, F# E Eb C# of liberty.
