Intro: A (finger pick)

A                            Bm
A billion people died on the news tonight
A                            Bm
But not so many cried at the terrible sight

Well mama said
A
It's just make believe
C#m
You can't believe everything you see
Bm                                       D    Dm
So baby close your eyes to the lullabies
           A
On the news tonight
Bm

A                                      Bm
Who's the one to decide that it would be alright
A                            Bm
To put the music behind the news tonight

Well mama said
A
You can't believe everything you hear
C#m
The diagetic world is so unclear
Bm                         D       C#m
So baby close your ears
              Bm
On the news tonight
              F#m
On the news tonight
     Bm                             F#m
The unobtrusive tones on the news tonight
               A         E
And mama said

A                                                  Bm
Why don't the newscasters cry when they read about people who die
A                                                  Bm
At least they could be decent enough to put just a tear in their eyes

Mama said
A
It's just make believe
C#m
You can’t believe everything you see
Bm                                         D     Dm
So baby close your eyes to the lullabies
                       A            Bm           A...
On the news tonight

Transition into Natural Mystic by Bob Marley

Tab submitted by Greg Clemmer

            Bm            E
There’s a natural mystic blowing
             F#m          Bm           E
through the air. If you listen carefully,
               F#m              Bm
now, you will hear. This could be the
       F#m              Bm           F#m
first trumpet. Might as well be the last.
     Bm                F#m
Many more will have to suffer. Many
Bm                E                F#m
more will have to die, don’t ask me why.
      Bm                 E
Cause things are not the way they’re
      F#m                   Bm
meant to be now. Won’t tell no lies.

E F#m (let chord ring)
