Talkin' About A Revolution


by Tracy Chapman
Don't you know
They're talkin' about a revolution
It sounds like a whisper
Don't you know
They're talkin' about a revolution
It sounds like a whisper

G - C - / Em - D - // repeat throughout

While they're standing in the welfare lines
Crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation
Wasting time in the unemployment lines
Sitting around waiting for a promotion

Don't you know
They're talkin' about a revolution
It sounds like a whisper

Poor people gonna rise up
And get their share
Poor people gonna rise up
And take what's theirs

Don't you know
You better run, run, run...
Oh I said you better
Run, run, run...

Finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin' about a revolution
Finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin' about a revolution
Talkin' about a revolution
Talkin' about a revolution

While they're standing in the welfare lines
Crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation
Wasting time in the unemployment lines
Sitting around waiting for a promotion

Don't you know
They're talkin' about a revolution
It sounds like a whisper

Finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin' about a revolution
Finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin' about a revolution
Talkin' about a revolution
Talkin' about a revolution
