Chords by Marian McKenzie 3-27-01

 

   G   C                         F                        C    G

Together let’s build a new nation

 

                    F                         C                          G7

That’s founded on truth and on love--

 

   G     C                       F                        C   (G)

No war, no disease, no privation,

 

              F                  G7                              C

Our senators blessed from above.

 

 

 

 

               F                                                   C

But what in this country so gleaming

 

               G7                                            C

Shall our guiding principle be?

 

                      F                                                              Em

O what song from our lips shall be streaming

 

 
                    D                                     G

As we march so victoriously?

 

  G7

Why --

 

 

   C                     F                  C      G

Faraday’s law of induction

 

           F                     C                        G7

The law of all sea and all land--

 

   G     C                   F                        C   (G)

No lies, no deceit, no corruption

 

                  F                  G7                              C

In this law so complete and so grand!

 

 


               F                                                 C

Our children will sing it in chorus –

 

                 G7                                       C

“Circulation of vector cap E,”

 

                           F                                                       Em

Yes they’ll sing as they march on before us,

 

                      D                                      G

“Equals negative d by dt

 

 

  G7

Of --

   C                     F                              C      G

Magnetic flux through a surface,”

 

                               F                         C                          G7

They’ll conclude as we strike up the band.

 

   G             C                          F                                C   (G)

We’ll mark all our coins with our purpose --

 

                  F                     G7                          C

“On Maxwell’s equations we stand!”

 

 

               F                                     C

It’s Faraday’s law of induction

 

               G7                                            C

That allows us to generate pow’r.

 

                      F                                            Em

It gives voltage increase or reduction --

 

                        D                                                G

We could sing on and on for an hour

 

 

 

 
  G7

About --

   C                     F                  C      G

Faraday’s law of induction

 

           F                     C                        G7

The law of all sea and all land--

 

   G     C                   F                        C   (G)

No lies, no deceit, no corruption

 

                  F                  G7                              C

In this law so complete and so grand!
