I don't know the official version of the song, but this is how I play it and I 
think it sounds pretty da*n good.  (feel free to judge)

        E                  Asus2
Well I see him on the TV preaching 'bout the promised land
   E                                       Asus
He tells me to believe in Jesus steals the money from my hand
E                  F#m      G#m              A
Some say he was a good man lord I think he sinned
E                                        Asus2
Twenty two years of mental tears cries a suicidal Vietnam vet
              E
Who fought a losing war on a foreign shore
            Asus
to find his country didn't want him back
      E 
Their bullets took his best friend in Saigon
                    Asus
Our lawyers took his wife and kids no regrets
     E                          Asus
In a time I don't remember in a war he can't forget
          E                        F#m                G#m
He cried "Forgive me for what I've done there cause I never meant the
         A
things I did ...
                                 E
     And give me something to believe in
                  Asus
     If there's a lord above
                              E                Asus
     Give me something to believe in,  Oh lord arise
    
   E                                     Asus
My best friend died a lonely man in some Palm Springs motel room
  E                                       Asus
I got the call last Christmas Eve and they told me the news
  E                                                Asus
I tried all night not to break down and cry as the tears rolled down my face
  E                             Asus
I felt so cold and empty like a lost soul out of place
    E             F#m                G#m               A
And mirror mirror on the wall sees a smile than fades again
                                 E
     And give me something to believe in
                  Asus
     If there's a lord above
                              E                Asus
     Give me something to believe in,  Oh lord arise

             E            F#m                 G#m                   A 
Sometimes I wish to God I didn't know now the things I didn't know then

     Solo:    (yeah, youíre chord players Ö you donít play solos!)

               E
I drive by the homeless sleeping on the cold dark street
     Asus
like bodies in an open grave
E                                        Asus
Underneath the broken old neon sign that used to read "Jesus Saves"
  E                                   Asus
A mile away live the rich folks and I see how they livin' it up
          E                                         Asus
While the poor they eat from hand to mouth the rich drink from a golden cup
     E               F#m                G#m               A
And it just makes me wonder why so many lose and so few win
                                E
     Now give me something to believe in
                  Asus
     If there's a lord above
                              E                Asus
     Give me something to believe in,  Oh lord arise

             E            F#m                 G#m                   A
Sometimes I wish to God I didn't know now the things I didn't know then
                          E
Oh give me something to believe in.
