Torah song (Hillel’s Golden Rule)

Chorus:
Em C
What is hateful to you do not do to your neighbor
Am Em
That is the whole of the Torah

Verse 1
Em Am
Half a million people in the Warsaw ghetto
Closed from the world by walls and guards
One quarter died from disease and starvation
Em D Em
Smuggling food from the outside kept them alive

Bridge:
Am Em
But I did not speak when they came for the Communists
And I did not speak for the trade unions
No I did not speak for the Jews because I was not a Jew
2nd time—no I did not speak for Palestine because I was not a Palestinian
Bm
Then they came for me
Am
And there was no one left to speak for me

repeat chorus

Verse2
Em Am
Half a million people in the Gaza ghetto
Closed from the world by walls and guards
One quarter died from murder and starvation
Em D Em
Smuggling food from the outside kept them alive

Additional verses:
No I did not speak for the homeless when they brushed off the homeless
And I did not speak for the veterans for peace
And I did not speak for those condemned to die
But then they came for me………..
