LETTERBOMB CHORDS by GREEN DAY
FROM THE ALBUM AMERICAN IDIOT

(Since there are 2 types of E5, I will reffer to low E5, 022xxx, as E5, and high E5,
0799xx as E5(2) )

Intro:

E5(2) Eb5

Verse:

E5                 A
Where have all the bastards gone?

    F#5        A             E5 
The underbelly stacks up ten high.

    Ab               C#          Ab             C#       
The dummy failed the crash test, collecting unemployment cheques.

  F#            A            B   E5  B
A flunkie only along for the ride. 

Where have all the riots gone...

Pre-chorus:

A                B              A  B  A  
The town mayor's an extortionist,

A                           B        A  B  A
and he don't even know that you exist. 

B                     A        B  E5 B
Stand still when it's do or die.

    F#                  A           E5(2)
You better run for your fucking life.

Chorus:

E5(2)    B             A 
It's not over til your underground,

E5(2)    B                    A                
it's not over before it's too late,

E5(2)       B             A      C 
this cities burning, it's not my burden,

E5(2)         B               A
it's not over before it's too late.

F#                   A
When there's nothing left to analyze.

Interlude:

Eb                 E5(2)                Eb                E5(2)
Where will all the martyrs go, when the virus cures itself?

E5(2)                 B                A
And where will we all go when it's too late?

Outro:

E5         Ab              C#                    A
She said I can't take this place, I'm leaving it behind.

E5         Ab              C#                    A
She said I can't take this town, I'm leaving you tonight.

E5 (listen to CD to get ryhtm)

OK, that's all, it may seem a bit confusing, but I assure you it's accurate.
