Intro: (4x)
E---------------------|
B---------7^9-9-9-----|
G--9-9-9-----------7^-|
D---------------------|
A---------------------|
E---------------------|

Rythm 1: (2x)
E5 C5

(w/ rythm 1)
Desolate and without purpose
Radiating from so many septic sources
Forming the fabric of a wayward people
Disappearing as the vestiges of our past

Scratched like tartan into virgin soil
A substrate for progress and disarray
A spreading network of broken dreams
Searching for a thoroughfare to take us away

(chorus rythm)
E5 F5# G5 D5 A5
Just a little tale from the streets of America

E5 F5# G5 D5 A5
Sparkled promises paved with pathos and hysteria

E5 G5 D5
Trenchant, weary native sons

E5 F5# G5 A5 D5
Step back, step back and see the damage done

C5 G5 D5 C5 D5
Meander to the horizon, the streets of America

(w/ rythm 1 but w/o the Intro and palm-muted)
Black, tarred concrete, pine for me
Lying dormant for you and your country
Hardened surface cracked within
Catch the sweat from off of the chin

Of men and women, senior and child
Who look to you and your sterile miles
And in there stares is bald dismay
For what you promised led them astray

(w/ chorus rythm)
Just a little tale from the streets of America
Sparkled promises paved with pathos and hysteria
Trenchant, weary native sons
Step back, step back and see the damage done
Meander to the horizon, the streets of America

C5 G5 D5 E5
Hard-cracked, daunting, lifeless veins

C5 G5 D5 C5 D5 E5
False hope corridors to greener pastures is all that remains

That's it, enjoy it.

I think the intro/riff thingie goes like this.

e|-----------------------|
B|-----------------------|
G|-9-9-9-11-13-13-13-7---|
D|-x-x-x-x--x--x--x--x---|
A|-7-7-7-9--11-11-11-5---|
E|-----------------------|

Though it sounds like two guitars play it in the intro, one playing on A and the other one on G string. After that one guitar does both, in my opinion.
