The desert dust was rising       From a military convoy
Am              G    Em              D          G    Em 
As it ran into a city            With a cargo of despair
Em              G    Em              Am         G    Em
It waved away the roadblocks          As it dodged among the carbombs
Am                    C                     D    G    Em
For the cameras of the tourists  In the foxhole inn

Em   G    Em   Am   G    Em   Am   C    D    G    Em

              
CHORUS:

Em         C    D    G          Em         C    G
There is no love in the voice of the diplomat    He's running around in circles
Em         C    D    G          Em         C    G
There is no fear in the work of the journalist   He's seen it all before
Em              C               D          C               G
I've had enough of holy men and holy wars        I wish that I was far
G    Em   G    Em   G    Em
Away from here, away away
