I Don't Want To Wait

	  		intro/refrain:
Gsus2/F  	    Gsus2/E 
So open up your morn-ing light and 
Gsus2/D         Gsus2/C 	
say a little prayer for I.  You know that
Gsus2/F         Gsus2/E
if we are to stay alive, then
Gsus2/D          Gsus2/C 
see the peace in every eye.
G(add2)   
Du du du, etc.
C6/9
Du du du, etc.
verse:
G(add2)
She had two babies,
C6(add2)/G
one was six months, one was three
C6/9
in the war of forty four.
G(add2)
Every telephone ring, every heartbeat stinging when she
Em7  	       D	   Cmaj9
thought it was God calling her.  Oh, would
Em	D6                 C(add9) 
her son grow to know his father?
chorus:
G(add2)		   Dadd4/F#
I don't want to wait for our 
Em11	      Dsus  	
lives to be over I 
C6                    G(add9)/B
want to know right now, what will it 
Dsus/A   Dsus
be?
(repeat)
I don't want to wait for our lives to be over
Will it be yes, or will it be sorry?
G(add2)
Du du du du du 
C6/9
Du du du du du 
verse two:
G(add2)                   C6(add2)/G
He showed up all wet on the rainy front step
C6/9
wearing shrapnel in his skin.
G(add2)
And the war he saw linves inside him still. 
 Em7  	       D	   Cmaj9
It's so hard to be gentle and warm.
Em	D6                 C(add9) 
The years pass by and now he has granddaughters
chorus
bridge:
G7(add4)
Oh, so you look at me from across the room.  You're
Am9/b13
wearing your anguish again. Believe
Bb(add2)
me, I know the feeling; it 
Fsus			   C(add9)   
sucks you into the jaws of anger.
G7(add4)
Oh, so breath a little more deeply, my love.  All we
Am9/b13
have is this very moment
Bb(add2)
and I don't want to do what his father and his father and 
Fsus				  Gsus2
his fater did.  I want to be here now.
intro 
chorus
Du du du's
intro
end on Fsus2 improv.
