This is a great song from Buffalo Springfield. We play this song in the key of “E”, and the guitar chart and lyric sheet we use for open mic night and live performances are available below for your reference. If you prefer to use different guitar tabs or chord charts, we can accomodate any variations.


E                           A
There's somethin' happenin' here.
        E                A
What it is ain't exactly clear.
          E                   A
There's a man with a gun over there
          E                    A
A-tellin' me I've got to beware.

                     E
I think it's time we stop.
          D
Children, what's that sound?
A                     C           E E A E A
Everybody look what's goin' down.

E                          A
There's battle lines bein' drawn.
         E                    A
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong.
E                           A
Young people speakin' their minds
          E                  A
A-gettin' so much resistance from behind.

-

                     E
I think it's time we stop.
     D
Hey, what's that sound?
A                     C           E E A E A
Everybody look what's goin' down.

E                        A       G
What a field day for the heat.
E                        A       G
A thousand people in the street
E                 A          G
Singin' songs and a-carryin' signs
E             A              G    E
Mostly sayin' hooray for our side.

-

             E
It's time we stop.
     D
Hey, what's that sound?
A                     C           E E A E A
Everybody look what's goin' down.

-

E                A
Paranoia strikes deep.
          E            A
Into your life it will creep.
E                            A
It starts when you're always afraid.
            E                      A
Step out of line, the men come and take you away.

-

           E
You better stop.

Hey, what's that sound?
A                     C           E E A E A
Everybody look what's goin'..
           E
You better stop.
     D
Hey, what's that sound?
A                     C           E E A E A
Everybody look what's goin'..
           E
You better stop.
     D
Now, what's that sound?
A                     C           E E A E A
Everybody look what's goin'..
           E
You better stop.
          D
Children, what's that sound?
A                     C           E E A E A
Everybody look what's goin (fade out)
