Intro E F#m C#m E F#m C#m Verse 1
E F#m C#mWell they tied that yellow ribbon round the oak tree.
E F#m C#m They've worn out all the prayer in their hearts.
A E B All along thought they were routing for the home team,
A B C5 As they're sent to the game and torn apart.
E F#m C#m We twist this tourniquet upon the pipeline,
E F#m C#m That he carries all the pain in the world.
A E B As we blindly clap and cheer from the sidelines
A B It's clear, on a losing streak from the very start.
Chorus
C5 C#m A E And that's where they found me,
B C#m A E B In the cemetery.
C#m A A smoking gun in my hand,
E B A Now I'm damned for the land of the free.
B Sing with me,
E The american scream.
Intro E F#m C#m E F#m C#m Verse 2

A E B All along thought I was doing the right thing,
A B Now I'm lying in a pool of my blood.
Chorus
C5 C#m A E And that's where they found me,
B C#m A E B In the cemetery.
C#m A A smoking gun in my hand,
E B A Now I'm damned for the land of the free.
B Sing with me,
C#m A E And that's where they found me,
B C#m A E B In the cemetery.
