Bangladesh- Story of 1971 Chords- Joan Baez


(Am)Bangladesh, (E)Bangladesh
(C)Bangladesh, (G)Bangladesh
When the (F)sun sinks in the (C)west
Die a million (G)people of the (Am)Bangladesh

The (Am)story of (E)Bangladesh is an (C)ancient one
Again (G)made fresh
By (E)blind men who carry (F)out commands
Which flow out (C)of the laws upon which (G)nations stand
Which say to (Am)sacrifice a people (E)for a land

(Am)Bangladesh, (E)Bangladesh, (C)Bangladesh, (G)Bangladesh
When the (F)sun sinks in the (C)west
Die a million (G)people of the (Am)Bangladesh

Once (Am)again, we stand (E)aside
And watch the (C)families (G)crucified
See a (E)teenage mother's (F)vacant eyes
As she (C)watches her feeble (G)baby try
To fight the (Am)monsoon rains and (E)cholera flies

And the (Am)students at the uni(E)versity
(C)asleep at night quite (G)peacefully
The(E)soldiers came and shot them in (F)their beds
And terror (C)took the dawn awakening (G)shrieks of dread
And silent (Am)frozen forms, and pillows (E)drenched in red

(Am)Bangladesh, (E)Bangladesh, (C)Bangladesh, (G)Bangladesh
When the (F)sun sinks in the (C)west
Die a million (G)people of the (Am)Bangladesh

Did you (Am)read about the army (E)officer's plea
(C)donor's blood it was given (G)willingly
guitarchordworld.net
By (E)boys who took the needle (F)in their veins
And from their (C)bodies every drop of (G)blood was drained
No time to (Am)comprehend, and there was (E)little pain

And the (Am)story of (E)Bangladesh is an (C)ancient one,
Again (G)made fresh
By (E)all who carry (F)out commands
Which flow out (C)of the laws, upon which (G)nations stand
Which say to (Am)sacrifice a people (E)for a land

(Am)Bangladesh, (E)Bangladesh, (C)Bangladesh, (G)Bangladesh
When the (F)sun sinks in the (C)west
Die a million (G)people of the (Am)Bangladesh
