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 was it 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
