(repeated over and over during harmonica part)
Em    D  G Gm G


Verse 1:
G C G Gm G Gm GAcross from the prison and beside the great lake
Em D G Gm G Gm GBelow the rooftops and above the highways

Em D G GmIf I didn't own boots I wouldn't need feet
Em D G I come from the nation of heat

G C G Gm G Gm GSo swift and so vicious are the carnival rides
Em D G Gm G Gm GAnd the carnival barker yell your name for a bribe

Em D G Gm G Gm GWho says "It's a shame they don't let you have slaves here anymore"
Em D G GmI'm the ugliest man that you'll ever meet
Em D GI come from the nation of heat
