Original Song by A.a Bondy covered by Shawn James.

Verse and Chorus are the same and simple to learn, therefore I have only written 
down chords to the First Verse and Chorus.


Capo on 4th Fret

Intro: C, Gadd11, C, F, Am, Gadd11, C (x2)


First Verse:

        C         Gadd11
We were raised by wolves
   C              F
And we are still wild
                    Am             Gadd11
And we howl when the troubled wind blows

           C         Gadd11
And in the TV's blue light
    C              F
Oh, assassins will lie
           Am      Gadd11
If we just go down slow

  F              Am
So don't tread on me
   Gadd11     C
For I am your brother
      F            Am       Gadd11
I was born with an American heart

   F               Am
And don't tread on her
   Gadd1        C
For she is your sister
        F            Am       Gadd11
She was born with an American heart

Second Verse:

All the people you meet
Down in the streets
May be good but they don't wanna know
So they cover their eyes, for
Who wants to be sad?
Life is sweet at the bottom of the sea

(Repeat Chorus)

Third Verse:

All the mothers will cry,
Fathers stay up all night
With a chill that goes to the bones
And if your God makes war
Then he's no God I know
'Cause Christ would not send boys to die

(Repeat Chorus)

Fourth Verse:

Don't you get low as hell
When the peace dove is felled
By men with the blackest of minds
And above the din
Let the sighin' begin
As we're bound for the longest of days

(Chorus and End on C)
