Syndic No.37 ~ Chris Giovacchini

Another Generation

A Song by Chris Giovacchini ©2020

Capo 4th

(intro) C F G

I never thought I’d see it again in my time. After the fights we fought and the change we won.

But the hate and the blame were only waiting in the wings, waiting to take back the center stage.

(chorus)

We need another generation of patriots, with flowers in their hair.

Another generation of tie-dyed dreamers, who believe in the power of love.

All the battles we fought, for the air and the waters, so they could be clean and clear, and to

protect what was left of the sacred land, so it couldn’t be bought or sold.

(chorus)

C F C G

I never thought I’d see people of color again, on the ropes, heavy hands slapping them down.

But, racism still ran all through the crowds, carrying torches and swinging that old baton.

(chorus)

(end) C F C G C
