Chords
Transpose:
I changed the key from the other version that was up and I fixed a few of the chords.

Democracy by Leonard Cohen

C# F# G#It's coming through a hole in the air,
C# G# C#from those nights in Tiananmen Square.
F#It's coming from the feel
B F#that this ain't exactly real,
C# G# C#or it's real, but it ain't exactly there.
FFrom the wars against disorder,
A#mfrom the sirens night and day,
Ffrom the fires of the homeless,
A#mfrom the ashes of the gay:
G# F# C#Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.
C# F# G#It's coming through a crack in the wall;
C# G# C#on a visionary flood of alcohol;
F#from the staggering account
B F#of the Sermon on the Mount
C# G# C#which I don't pretend to understand at all.
FIt's coming from the silence
A#mon the dock of the bay,
Ffrom the brave, the bold, the battered
A#mheart of Chevrolet:
G# F# C#Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.
C# F# G#It's coming from the sorrow in the street,
C# G# C#the holy places where the races meet;
F#from the homicidal bitchin'
B F#that goes down in every kitchen
C# G# C#to determine who will serve and who will eat.
FFrom the wells of disappointment
A#mwhere the women kneel to pray
Ffor the grace of God in the desert here
A#mand the desert far away:
G# F# C#Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.
G# F#Sail on, sail on
C#O mighty Ship of State!
G#To the Shores of Need
F#Past the Reefs of Greed
C#Through the Squalls of Hate
G# F# C#Sail on, sail on, sail on, sail on.
C# F# G#It's coming to America first,
C# G# C#the cradle of the best and of the worst.
F#It's here they got the range
B F#and the machinery for change
C# G# C#and it's here they got the spiritual thirst.
FIt's here the family's broken
A#mand it's here the lonely say
Fthat the heart has got to open
A#min a fundamental way:
G# F# C#Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.
C# F# G#It's coming from the women and the men.
C# G# C#O baby, we'll be making love again.
F#We'll be going down so deep
B F#the river's going to weep,
C# G# C#and the mountain's going to shout, "Amen!"
FIt's coming like the tidal flood
A#mbeneath the lunar sway,
Fimperial, mysterious,
A#min amorous array:
G# F# C#Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.
G# F#Sail on, sail on
C#O mighty Ship of State!
G#To the Shores of Need
F#Past the Reefs of Greed
C#Through the Squalls of Hate
G# F# C#Sail on, sail on, sail on, sail on.
C# F# G#I'm sentimental, if you know what I mean
C# G# C#I love the country but I can't stand the scene.
F#And I'm neither left or right
B F#I'm just staying home tonight,
C# G# C#getting lost in that hopeless little screen.
FBut I'm stubborn as those garbage bags
A#mthat time cannot decay,
FI'm junk but I'm still holding up
A#mthis little wild bouquet:
G# F# C#Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.
