You basically sing over the chord progression, trying to start on G and end on C.
He did this on the first take, so you can definitely make improvements on where
the chords are placed in relation to the lyrics. Chord fingerings are based on
the youtube video he posted, which is a little higher voiced than the one used in
the original he's covering. Not sure what "chord" his C chord really is, but
that's what he uses, muted low E string and all.

G Bm Em C Am C G Cm YES WE CAN ---------- G Bm Em It was a creed written into the founding documents C G B that declared the destiny of a nation. Em C C Yes we can. G It was whispered by slaves Bm Em C and abolitionists as they blazed a trail toward freedom. C G Yes we can; Yes we can. Bm Em It was sung by immigrants as they struck out from distant shores G Bm Em C and pioneers who pushed westward against an unforgiving wilderness.(yeah) Yes we can. G Bm It was the call of workers who organized; Em women who reached for the ballots; C G Bm Em C G a President who chose the moon as our new frontier;and a King (1:40) Bm E who took us to the mountaintop C G and pointed the way to the Promised Land. Bm E C Yes we can Yes we can G Yes we can to justice and equality. (Yeah-e-ah) Yes we can to opportunity and prosperity. (Yeah) Yes we can heal this nation. Yes we can repair this world. Yes we can. 3x We know the battle ahead will be long, but always remember that no matter what obstacles stand in our way, nothing can stand in the way CCCC of the power of millions of voices calling for change. yes we can, yes we can Bridge (3:39) G We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics... they will only grow louder and more dissonant ........... G We've been asked to pause for a reality check. We've been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope.(4:04) Cm But in the unlikely story that is A-merica,(4:10) there has never been anything .....false about hope.(4:21) End Bridge Yes we can Yes we can (4:35) G Now the hopes of the little girl who goes to a crumbling school in Dillon are the same as the dreams of the boy who learns on the streets of LA; we will remember that there is something happening in America; and we are not as divided as our politics suggests; that we are one people; we are one nation here; and together, we will begin the next chapter in America, the American story with three words that will ring from coast to coast; from sea to shining sea -- Yes. We. Can.
