Heaven Help Us All

By Ronald Miller
I know Stevie Wonder's version
Rise Up Singing chapter: City, p.19

C Am F Dm / C Am F G / C Am F G
Heaven help the child who never had a home
Heaven help the girl who walks these streets alone
Heaven help the roses if the bombs begin to fall

C F C - / F G C - / F G C - / E - Am - / D - G - C - - -
Heaven help us all (3x)
Heaven help us, Lord hear our call
When we call (2x) Heaven help us all

Heaven help the black man if he struggles one more day

Heaven help the white man if he turns his back away
Heaven help the man who kicks the man who has to crawl

Heaven help the boy who won't reach twenty-one
Heaven help the man who gave that boy a gun
Heaven help the people with their backs against the wall

Now I lay me down before I go to sleep
In a troubled world, I pray the Lord to keep, keep
Hatred from the mighty, and the mighty from the small
