As I walk through,    this wicked world
C             Em           A           D        C
Searching for light in the darkness of insanity
C     G      D C             G     D C
I ask myself,    is all hope lost?
C             Em       A          D       C 
Is there only pain and hatred and misery?

C        G                D            G7                C
Cos each time I feel like this inside, one thing I wanna know

As walk on,     through troubled times

My spirit gets so downhearted, sometimes
C            G           D  C               G        D C
So where are strong ones?   And who are the trusted?
C                Em  A     D             C   
And where is the har-ar-mony, sweet harmony?

C        G              D              G7                       C   
Cos each time I feel it slipping away, it just makes me want to cry
G                     D                     Em        D
