 Man made the buildings,
     Bm            G    D/F#  Em
That reach for the sky.
    D            D/C#

And learned how to drive.

And he didn't make me.

To turn us   into ma-chines.

He's got no right at all,

'Cos we are all God's children.
         D      G
And he's got no right,

To change us.

The saint and the sinner.
    D             D/C#
The wise man, the simpleton,

The loser and the winner.

The things we own.

And he's got no right,

To change us.

About the artist behind Gods Children Chords:

The Kinks were an English pop/rock group formed in 1963, and categorised as a British Invasion band, along with the other members of the so-called Big Four (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who). Despite being less commercially successful than these three contemporaries, mostly because of a four-year ban from the United States in the mid-to-late 1960s, the Kinks are cited among them as one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time and have 12 top 40 hits in America.[1]

The band's early hard-driving singles set a standard in the mid-1960s for rock and roll, while albums such as Face to Face,[2] Something Else, The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, Arthur and Muswell Hillbillies are highly regarded by fans, critics, and peers, and are considered amongst the most influential recordings of the era.[3]
