certain chords he variates it a little.**

F#                                                                  D
Well I've seen this whole country, all the lonely spots, the highway stops.
   F#                                                      E
And nothing really changes but the weather and the way people talk.
                  F#
Yeah, I've seen America.
                                                                     D
And from the ghettos to the hills and to the suburbs the same sorrows fall
           F#                                                       E
It's all stomachaches and coughing, cigarettes and death and telephone calls
                               F#
You forgot to lock the door, America.
                     D
Yeah I've seen you undressed.
                                A
Is it true what they told me, America?
                               E
'Cause you were stunning in the flesh.
            F#                                                            D
Well I was walking through a casino in Las Vegas I saw a plastic Statue of Liberty
           F#                                                   E
Posed like Marilyn Monroe, completely absent of that silent iron dignity
                  F#
Oh, goddamn it, America.
                                 D
I couldn't have said it better myself.
                                 A
Is it true what they taught me, America?
                            E
Oh did your guns once make us proud?
                                F#
Oh please don't fuck this up, America.
                              D
Oh you're not thinking of your health.
                            A
You're gettin greedy now, America.
                        E
Are you being true to yourself,

Or to anybody else?

D    A    E    Gb  x2

Gb       D             A             E      Gb

         D             A             E
Oooh ooh oooh Oooh ooh oooh Oooh ooh oooooooooooh
{Just do whatever you want here, have fun ;) }                  D
Well I woke up in Manhattan I guess I got so drunk I slept in my car

And in those deep and desperate moments they say that ya
F#                                                E
Get the most clarity, I was a prophet I saw from so far
                     F#
Oh we're hungover, America.
                         D
We need a shave, I need coffee.
                         A
But I should thank you, America.
                         E
'Cause I did not build this city.
                                       F#
C'mon, give me something to die for, America!
                     D
Until then, don't bother me.
                          A
I wanna believe in you, America.
                                   E
I don't give a fuck if you believe in me!
                          F#
I wanna say "I love you, America!"
                              D
For all the things you've granted me.
                          A
But I'm ashamed of you, America.
                         E
How you convinced me we were free.

And I, well I take that personally!

D    A    E    Gb  x2
