It’s Love or It’s Money

IT’S LOVE OR IT’S MONEY     

It’s love or it’s money, That’s the Great Divide            

I been working for the corporation C C#dim6 G
Got a heart full of pain                       D7 D+5 G
Using my hands to tear apart this land B7 – Em –
Might as well be in chains                   A7 – D –
Take the world from your sons & daughters    C C#dim6 G
Just digging up things to burn              B7 – Em C
I know today there’s a – better way G D Em C
But we never just seem to learn A7 D7 G –

CHORUS
It’s love – or it’s money,         G F# F E7
That’s the great divide. A7  D7  G—
Don’t sell your mama, you got G F# F E7
No place to hide.           A7 –  D7 –
Everybody’s got to choose, G –   G7 –
Win or lose. C –   A#dim6
It’s love – or it’s money,         G F# F E7
That’s the great divide! A7  D7  G-

Now it ain’t naive, or make-believe,
Giving up fossil fuel.
And I don’t care if billionaires
Take me for a fool
You can feel so fine, let your love light shine,
Standing up straight and tall
Wanna free our mind from pipelines,
Gonna pretty near take us all

‘Cause It’s love or it’s money, That’s the Great Divide

Everybody needs a paycheck,      Am A#dim6
Got a mouth or two at home.   B7sus4 E7
But If you don’t need it, why feed it?        Am A#dim6
It isn’t written in stone!                             G Em Am— D—

CHORUS
