For What It's Worth
 
               E                                               A
               There's something happening here
               And what it is ain't exactly clear
               There's a man with a gun over there
               Telling me I've got to beware
                                                       E                      D
                       I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
                       A                                     C                  E A    E A
                       Everybody look, what's goin' down

               There's battle lines are being drawn
               Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
               Young people speaking their minds
               Are getting so much resistance from behind
                       Time we stop, hey, what's that sound
                       Everybody look, what's goin' down

               What a field day for the heat
               A thousand people in the street
               Singin' songs and carryin' signs
               Mostly say "hooray for our side"
                       It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
                       Everybody look, what's goin' down

               Paranoia strikes deep
               Into your life it will creep
               It starts when you're always afraid
               Step outta line, the man come and take you away
                       We better stop, hey, what's that sound
                       Everybody look, what's goin' down

                           We better stop, hey, what's that sound
                           Everybody look, what's goin' down
                               We better stop, now, what's that sound
                               Everybody look, what's goin' down
                                   We better stop, children, what's that sound
                                   Everybody look, what's goin' down...
