Jewel – The New Wild West chords

Chords:
Transpose:
[Verse 1]
DmYou see the ghosts of the buffalo
Moving both fierce and slow
DLike glittering prophesies
On the edge of the horizon
DmAs you drive glittering highways
And beaten-up by-ways
DThat straddle and girdle
A great and many-faced nation
DmYou see lambs in the ghettos
Who worship their Gepettos
DBelieving in, though never seeing
The strings they think bind them
DmSo you write to our congressmen
With bleeding pens
DmOf the sorrow within
And in return they just send
DTickets to the latest Tom Hanks show
[Chorus]
F G DmWelcome to the new wild west
F G DEach man for himself
F GCivilized steeples
C GAnd lonely people
F G DmWelcome to the new wild west
[Verse 2]
DmThere are so many factions
And cue-card reactions
DmIt's hard to keep clear
The possibilities here
D'Cause there's no force to unite them
DmPrivilege has ruled for thousands of years
Wars have been fought with bibles and tears
DmYet liberation can't deny the temptation
DAnd soon becomes the oppressor
DmShow me a leader who's fit to lead
Who don't sow his seed in anything Wounded enough to breed Because after all what fun is power
DIf you can't act like a rock star?
[Chorus]
F G DmWelcome to the new wild west
F G DEach man for himself
F GCivilized steeples
C GAnd lonely people
F GWelcome to the new-

[Verse 3]
DmSee me, I've been cruel
I've been petty and unkind
DmBut I know my own mind
And since it seems clear
DmThere's no one leading us here
The only thing left it appears
DIs to task ourselves to be better each time
Then those before us
DmWe'll be an army of theives
Of self-freed slaves
DmOf mild-mannered maids
We'll fight with whispers and blades
DSo get ready, a new day is dawning
[Chorus]
F G DmWelcome to the new wild west
F G DEach man for himself
F GCivilized steeples
C GAnd lonely people
F G DmWelcome to the new wild west
