Desaparecidos - City On The Hill (Payola, 2015 - Epitaph Records). 

Power chords, play to your own style or check out the "Late Night" recording of the song on 
Youtube to copy Conor/Denver. 

(E gn - denotes Denver's delayed riff; as a holding measure you can play an E as a grace note; 
n.b. the delayed riff is E - 0 B - 5 - so 2 E's with a weird stutter pattern).


Intro:
C //  ( E grace-note) C //  ( E gn)                           Am         Em - F

C ///  ( E gn) C ///  ( E gn)              Am              Em - F
All the founding fathers - sowed their seeds into servant girls
All the godless heathens - had to leave to make a newer world
G               G                  F   AmG         G                F
So we could live together in America - Justice is blind and so is love

C //  ( E gn) C //  ( E gn)                           Am         EmF   [x 2]
                                                                   Uh-oh Uh-oh  -  Uh-oh Uh-oh

C ///  ( E gn) C ///  ( E gn)      Am            Em - F
All the stolen melodies - they played in the hit parade
All the borrowed spirituals - they feigned in the salad days
G               G                  F   AmG         G                F
So we could sing together in America - The price of an anthem paid in blood

C                       G               F
Bodies stacked like hundred dollar bills - (Carved names into a wall)
To build that shining city on the hill - (Forgot them all)
G                       F               G               C
There’s no guilt, regret or shame - It just had to be this way

C //  ( E gn) C //  ( E gn)                           Am         EmF   [x 2]
                                                                   Uh-oh Uh-oh  -  Uh-oh Uh-oh

C ///  ( E gn) C ///  ( E gn)      Am            Em - F
If you scheme and hustle just don’t get caught, - you've got to risk it all
Or hang on every number - they read off for the Powerball
G               G                  F   AmG         G                F
We’ll all get rich together in America - Money is indifferent and so is love

C                       G               F
Trash bags full of hundred dollar bills - (Put statues on the mall)
We left that bombed-out city on the hill - (Forgave them all)
G                       F               G               C
Have to relocate the past - Because we are never going back

C //  ( E gn) C //  ( E gn)                           Am         EmF   [x 2]
                                                                    Uh-oh Uh-oh


Peace Out
