 we've got the american jesus
A5            G5            F5
 overwhelming millions every day


he's the farmer's 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.................

Good tab...just the 5 on the low E string in the intro is the same as an open on the A string, and it's just easier that way, or atleast to me....
