I was standing in the grocery store line The one they marked ex-press
            A                             E
When this woman came through with about twenty-five things
              D                            A
And I said, "Don't you know that more is less?"
          A                       D                A
She said this world is moving so fast I just get more behind every day
      A                    E
And every morning when I make my coffee
              D                             A
I can't be-lieve my life's turned out this way All I can say was

CHORUS:

Love's the only house big enough for all the pain in the world
A                      D                      E
Love's the only house big enough for all the pain

                                                            E
And she's four years old and she's got her daddy's little grin
           A                     D                              E
You only wanted what you can't have And baby you can't have me now
           D            
I gave my heart to another Yeah I'm a mother and he's a father
D
And we're a family and we've got each other
D
And I found out the hard way that"   go to chorus, lead

A
You drive three miles from all this prosperity
A
Down across the river and you see a ghetto there
A
We got children walking around with guns and they've got knives
A
And drugs and pain to spare
A                            E
Here I am in my clean white shirt with a little money in my pocket
                 A
And a nice warm home
E       
And we got teenagers walking around in a culture of darkness living
E
Together alone  All I can say is      go to chorus
F#m                      E
And I can't explain it and I can't understand 
D
But I've come down and get my hands dirty 
D                           E
and together we'll make a stand
A
Some will cross a parking lot some band playing out of tune
D
City streets are going to burn If we don't do something soon 
     A
