hey guys, this is just a way to play one of the greatest songs of all time on your own. Intro: Am F C G x3 Am F (ad lib on the E for the build up) Am F I don't need to be a global citizen C G Cause I'm blessed by nationality Am F I'm a member of a growing populace C G We enforce our popularity Am F There are things that seem to pull us under and C G There are things that drag us down Am F But there's a power and a vital presence C E* that's lurking all around (here the tempo speeds up, listen to the song to get it) Am F C G We've Got the American Jesus Am F C G See him on the interstate Am F C G We've Got the American Jesus Am F C G Am E* He helped build the president's esta---a---ate Am F I feel sorry for the earth's population C G Cause so few live in the USA Am F At least the foreigners can copy our morality C G They can Visit but they cannot stay Am F Only precious few can garner the prosperity C G That makes us walk with renewed confidence Am F We got a place to go when we die C E* And the architect resides right here [ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/b/bad-religion/102749.html ] Am F C G We've Got the American Jesus Am F C G See him on the interstate Am F C G We've Got the American Jesus Am F C G Am E* Overwhelming millions every da----a---ay (they palm mute although solo acoustic i prefer to do reggae upstrokes) Am He's the farmer's barren fields F The force the army weilds C G The expressions on the faces of the starving children Am The power of the man F The fuel that drives the clan C G The motive and the conscience of the murderer Am The preacher on TV F The false sincerity C G The form letter that's written by the big computer Am The nuclear bomb F The kids with no mom C G E* And I'm fearful that he's inside me Am F C G We've Got the American Jesus Am F C G See him on the interstate Am F C G We've Got the American Jesus Am F C G Am E* Overwhelming millions every da----a---ay (this next part is the backing vocals sung during the bridge - farmer's barren fields - but i change it up because it is solo acoustic. i use the same chords as the bridge the following lyrics) In God We Trust Cause he is one of us Break down Cave in He will redeem your sin Good heart Clear mind And infinately kind You lose We win E* He is our champion chorus again (or twice if you want) and you're done. peace.
