Original Song – “The World”

The World is a quiet, thoughtful and prayerful song for love, hope and peace to be given a chance to transform the world into the thoughtful, joyful, generous and caring place it should be for everyone.  For love, hope and peace form a foundation from which all things can thrive, grow and prosper.  Let us all hope and pray that love, hope and peace will one day fill the world, and usher in a brighter and more beautiful tomorrow for everyone, “The world cries out for love, Give love a chance…”

I recorded my original song “The World” as a demo on Set 15 in 1997, and it completes the set.  The intro is a bit rough, but the song speaks to the world crying out for love, hope and peace, “The world cries out for love, Give love a chance…” Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

(Note: The chord Esus4* is simply an easier version of the standard Esus4 fingering pattern played on the guitar.  Emailed versions of these songs lose their chord alignment and formatting, so refer to the original post and/or the scanned lyric sheet as your guide!)
