              C              G       Dm          F
So many fathers are gone, lost to the fighting
C                    G    Am                      F
What can they do? What can children do?
                  C             G           F       C
But work so hard to survive in Afghanistan.
*
Guns, bombs, grenades, soulless machines
What can they do? What can they do?
Nonviolence they choose for Afghanistan.
*
Threatened by those with fear in their hearts
What can they do? What can they do?
But risk their lives for the peace in Afghanistan.
*
The land is degraded to dust and sand
What can they do? What can they do?
But nurture the life of Afghanistan.
*
     Am
     Send them our light
     F
     Send them our hope
     Am
     Send them our love
     F                                             G
     Send them the strength to carry on
*
Nearly all trust is gone, broken by fear
What can they do? What can they do?
But stand bravely with love in Afghanistan.
*
Their courage and faith speak to us all
What can we do? What can we do?
But stand up for peace in Afghanistan
What can we do? What can we do?
No more war in our name in Afghanistan.
*
     Let them send us their light
     Send us their hope
     Send us their love
     Send us the strength to carry on....
*
     And we'll send them our light
     Send them our hope
     Send them our love
     Send them the strength to carry on.
*
La, la etc.
Nonviolence they choose for Afghanistan
Nonviolence they ask for Afghanistan.
