*Chords for verses are the same

Intro:  G C G C

Verse 1:  
Oh well I’ve made a small fortune selling used cars
And its buried out back in a cookie jar
I raise a toast to senior escabar 
    C                  D
For giving me a pot to piss in

Well I ran a little scam until ninety two
Now I’m hanging round here for something to do
I just keep talking till I’m blue
To anyone who’ll listen

          Em      D     C
Yes we’re lost in America
         Em         D        C
And this land we’re so proud of
              Em                  D                     
We’ve got the cars, the girls, the money, 
             C                   A
the drugs to get you out of your rut
          C       D       G
Yes we’re lost in America

Verse 2:

She got a brand new lease on an Escalade
And a bumper sticker about a whale to save
And she burning up gas like they gave it away
At least her kid’s on the honor roll

She got a handful of pills to improve her mood
Liposuction,  big fake boobs
Got a Mexican maid that brings the food
The birdcage made of gold



Am           D
I’m dropping out
    Am                D
And I’m quitting this game
         C               G/B                  Em                G/Bb
Yes I’m washing my feet, I turn off my phone, changing my name, Hitting the road
C                 G/B                  C                              D
Don’t really know where I’m gonna go, but I’m getting the hell out of here

Tab sounds pretty close except for the bridge...just doesn't seem quite right. I'll try and figure it out

I recently watched a video on http://blueroom.att.com/mainstage/index.php of Edwin doing this song live and I've figured out the actual chords he's playing during the bridge. I'm not sure what the names of the chords are and I'm not going to bother trying to find out so I'll just put them tabbed out.

Chord1: 5 x 5 5 x x
Chord2: 7 x 5 7 8 x
Chord3: 8 10 10 x x x or 8 10 10 9 x x or 8 10 10 0 x x (they all sound close)
Chord4: 9 x 9 9 x x
