Intro:  C  C/b  Am  Am  D

G                    D/f#
A mother riding on a city bus
Em                       D           C  
Kids are yelling kicking up a fuss Everybodyís staring
     C/b                        D
Not knowing what she's going through
G                         D/f#
  Somebody said don't you even care
    Em                        D
And do you let them do that everywhere
   C                C/b                    D
She slowly turned  around, looked up and stared.
Em                                 C
She said Please forgive them But they've been up all night
Em                             C
Their father struggled But he finally lost his fight
Em                        C
He went to heaven In the middle of the night
    C     C/b   Am  Am   D
So please for--give my children  They donít understand

CHORUS:

G                          D/f#
Everybody's busy with their own situation
Em                         D
Everybody's lost in their own little world
C                        C/b                          D
Bottled up, hurried up, trying to make a dream come true They don't understand
G                             D/f#
Everybody's livin' like there ain't no tomorrow
Em                                D
Maybe we should stop and take a little time
C                           C/b                          D
Cause you never really know what your neighborís going through They don't understand.




G                      D/f#         Em                 D 
A man driving on the interstate,  slowin down traffic makin everybody late,
Em                       C                      D  
Everybody's staring not knowing what he's goin through,
G                         D/f#               Em                    D   
Sombody honked from the passin' lane, yelled out the window ain't got all day,
     C                C/b                     D
The old man looked a-round and he caught his eye,
Em                                  C
He said please forgive me, you know it's been a real long life, 
Em                              C
My wife has passed away and my kids don't have the time,
     Em                             C
I've been left all alone and it's gettin' hard to drive,
      C   C/b  Am  Am  D 
So please for-give me children,  They don't understand.

A man hangin on a wooden cross, Given everything to save the lost,
C                       C/b                       D
Everybody's starin not knowin what he's goin through,
G                 D/f#
Somebody said you don't have a prayer,
Em                        D
If you're a king come on down from there,
C                       C/b                     D
The man just turned his head and looked up and stared,
Em                                     C
He said please forgive them, For they have not seen the light,
Em                              C
They'll come to know me when I come back to life,  
Em                           C
The road to heaven to make everything alright,
    C  C/b Am   Am         D
So please for--give your children, They don't understand
