Get Together

Words & Music by:

Chet Powers [a.k.a. Dino Valenti]

Tabbed by Andrew Rogers


[play in G with no capo or in A with capo 2]

 G6                FM7/G

  v   v   v   v     v   v   v   v








G                                             F  [etc.]

Love is but a song we sing, fear's the way we die.

You can make the mountains ring or make the angels cry.

Though the bird is on the wing and you may not know why.



C                  D

C'mon people, now, smile on your brother.

    G                          C          D           G

Everybody get together; try to love one another right now.


Some will come and some will go and we shall surely pass.

When the one that left us here returns for us at last.

We are but a moment's sunlight fading in the grass.


CHORUS: [2x]






If you hear the song I sing, you will understand.  (listen!)

You hold the key to love and fear there in your trembling hand.

Just one key unlocks them both; it's there at your command.


CHORUS:  [3x – last time repeat "right now" 3x and end on Asus2]
