G
Well they broke off the locks and they opened the doors
C
Pushed out the windows andpainted the floors
D G Gsus4 G
Grew a little garden outside in the dust and sand

G
Raised up the roof til it touched the sky
C
Picked up the pieces that were left to die
D G
Brought this building back with healing hands

Bm C
When you see trouble
Bm C
You're bound to move it on the double
Am Bm
Cause you leave your mark upon everything
C Bm
In your head those Liberty Bells still ring
Am Bm D
But we know that you don't even mean a thing you say

So you brought in the army to do job
Of kicking in doors and swinging theie clubs
Back in the morning to watch themselves on the news

You're doing the bidding of the money men
If it turns out right, they'll call you friend
One little favour, how could you really refuse

And oh my heart is sinking
Same old useless worn out thinking
You live your life in te court of kings
Bow to the ruler and kiss the ring
But we don't even understand a thing you say

Chorus:
G C G C
It could happen to you, It could happen to you
G D
It could happen to you sometime when you least expect it
Em A
Done by the one that you never suspected
C D
All your bills come due
G
It could happen to you.



You really gatta wonder what you did it for
Cause you don't need an army to move out the poor
You brought it out once I know you'd bring it again

And oh my heart is sinking
Same old useless worn out thinking
You live your life in the court of kings
Count your money as the raven sings
Safe and sound as the wrecking ball swings
But all your riches won't mean a thing someday

G C
Oh it could happen to you
G C
Oh it could happen to you
Oh it could happen to you (it could happen to you)
Oh it could happen to you
