                                        Original Song by Huddie Ledbetter, New Words Copyright 2015 by Peter Bergel

From the album “Peace Is Where You Make It”

 

Key of E

Chorus

                  A
I told ‘em no
E
I don’t want it no more
B7
I don’t want carbon power
C7       B7             E
In my land no more.

 

E
We all enjoy our comfort,

And we all want to be cool

That’s how we got addicted
E7
To these poisoned fossil fuels

Chorus

The power bosses tell us
You know you are our slave
You cannot escape us
Until you’re in your grave…

Chorus

Now you might be a lib’ral
Or a conservative
But are you just a fossil
Or do you use alternatives?

Chorus

I’ve gotta keep on singin’
Tell everyone the news
So you can understand
Why I’ve got these Carbon Blues

Chorus
