  Bm  F#m  D  Dadd9  G6  Em  A  A alternative (also sounds good)

the intro is single notes A D C# Bm F#m Bm I'm just an American boy D Dadd9 D Raised on M T V G6 Bm Em Bm And I've seen all those kids in the soda pop ads Bm F#m Bm But none of 'em looked like me So I started lookin' around For a light out of the dim And the first thing I heard that made sense was the word Of Mohammed, peace be upon him D A Em A shadu la ilaha illa Allah (pronounced A shadu laila hailla Allah) G F#m There is no God but God If my daddy could see me now With chains around my feet He don't understand that sometimes a man Has got to fight for what he believes And I believe God is great, All praise due to him And if I should die, I'll rise up to the sky Just like Jesus, peace be upon him A shadu la ilaha illa Allah There is no God but God Guitar break Bm D A Em D A then play single notes D C# We came to fight the Jihad And our hearts were pure and strong As death filled the air we all offered up prayers And prepared for our martyrdom But Allah had some other plan, Some secret not revealed Now they're dragging me back with my head in a sack To the land of the infidel A shadu la ilaha illa Allah A shadu la ilaha illa Allah Thanks to Doug Floyd and Gareth Owen for getting me started on this one.
