If you lift your pointer finger before each chord (and twice during the Fmaj7), you can do the little hammer-on thing you hear in the recording. Also, I'll show you the little Am lick for the chorus down below. Intro: Am
Am C Fmaj7We raise the flags and statues to our mission
Am C Fmaj7we've spoken out in slogans and in campaigns
Am C Fmaj7talked and talked on almost every issue
Am C Fmaj7where oppression of the masses is the constant theme
Am C Fmaj7but what does this mean to a little town in Iowa?
Am C Fmaj7where the jobs have gone downstream down south and out
Am C Fmaj7where their fingers used to work to the bone all day
Am C Fmaj7profits rise and fall and starvation is a game
