My friend showed me this song and asked me to sound it out for him so he may play it, 
since he couldn't find the chords anywhere online. It's a great song and I'm happy 
to be sharing my work with you all!

Most of the song is pretty basic, but there are a few very painful-pinky-stretching 
chords in there as well. To get the strumming rhythm down, listen to the song first or 
play with it. Every chord should be listed perfectly with the relative lyric, but the 
singing is fast so some of the chords are just walk-ups and played once very fast. 
Bar chords will make things easier and sound better for many parts, but it's up to 
you how you wish to play it. 

There is one note I left out (right before the 2nd E -> F) which is played twice 
throughout the song, since the guitar would have to be tuned down a step and without 
a capo. It is an Eb if anyone is interested (D with capo), but for simplicity's 
sake, it is not there. But not to worry; it still sounds great just replaced with an E!

Let me know if any errors are found. Thanks and enjoy!

I The Mighty - Karma Keepers
Tuning: Standard
Capo 1st Fret



Intro:
Am [strum x1 & palm-mute] [x4]
Am [x4]



Am               B      C                         E         F         FaddD
We started riots in the streets just so you could point the finger.
Am          B        C                       G*       G
We set fire to these cities just so we could watch them burn and light our way.
        E       F
You can call us hell, call us what you will, 
                                   C
just don't you ever call us by our names.
           Dm                           DmaddF    DmaddE    Am
We are you sisters, your brothers, your sons, the whole damn brigade.
             F               E             Am       E      F
And we won't stop till every citizen, they get what they deserve.
      Dm           DmaddD                Am
So be kind to your elders and watch your words.



    G          C             G       Abm  Am
I'm callin' it quits just as soon as we return,
E       F              G          Am
but for now I'm just a patriot at work.
E           F                 Am
So we sing "Oh you poor, poor soul.
               F                 G
I've been sent here to bring you home.
   C          G       Dm   E   F
My queen, she brews a powerful stew
            F        G        Am
and we need just one piece of you."



Am                B       C                      E    F         FaddD
We are the shadow that is cast upon your richest city square.
Am                B           C                  G*          G
We are the voices that you'll hear a single hour 'fore we're there
                          E   F
if the wind's in your favor.
                                                          C
And we only do to those as they have done to others so you should know
           Dm                       DmaddF DmaddE       Am
whether to wave as we're passing you by or hide in your rooms.
            F             E                   Am        E       F
Some give us praise, some join and stay, some say we're playing God.
    Dm         DmaddD                Am
And all in one voice we sing "you're wrong" but they may be not.



       G          C             G       Abm  Am
So I'm callin' it quits just as soon as we return
E       F              G          Am
but for now I'm just a patriot at work.
E           F                 Am
So we sing "Oh you poor, poor soul.
               F                 G
I've been sent here to bring you home.
   C          G       Dm   E   F
My queen, she brews a powerful stew
            F        G        Am
and we need just one piece of you."



 B  C[x1]      G[x1]    Dm[x1] E[x1]   F[x1]
"My queen, she brews a   powerful      stew
            F[x1]    G[x1]    Am[x1]
and we need just one piece of you."





G*:     [xxx0xx] (just the G note played before G chord)
You can also play the D string while holding the G bar chord for the same note

"not relative to capo to lessen the confusion" if anything, that makes it more confusing.
