Riff x2


A                      C
  I don't need to be a global citizen,

F                             G
  because I'm blessed by nationality,

A                   C
  I'm a member of a growing populace,

F                     G
  we enforced our popularity


A                               C 
  there are things that seem to pull us under and 

F                       G
  there are things that drag us down,

A                           C
  but there's a power and a vital presence

         F           E
  that's lurking all around


A       C        F       G
  we've got the american jesus

A         C      F    G
  see him on the interstate,

A       C       D        F
  we've got the american jesus

  A                   G             F
  he helped build the president's estate


Riff x2

(etc.)

I feel sorry for the earth's population
'cuz so few live in the U.S.A
at least the foreigners can copy our morality,
they can visit but they cannot stay,
only precious few 
can garner our prosperity,
it makes us walk
with renewed confidence,
we've got a place to go when we die
and the architecht resides right here

we've got the american jesus
postering the ...(?)...
we've got the american jesus
overwhelming millions every day

he's the farmer barren fields,
the force the army wields,
the expression in the faces 
of the starving millions,
the power of the man.
he's the fuel that drives the clan,
he's the motive and the conscience
of the murderer
he's the preacher on TV,
the false sincerity,
the form letter that's written by
the big computers,
he's the nuclear bombs,
and the kids with no moms
and I'm fearful that 
he's inside me

we've got the american jesus...

You know, this tab isn't too bad... but I think it sounds better if you used Am and Em instead of just A and E.

I think it's a matter of taste sound good with both but more logical with Am ,dont like the Em
