(relative to capo)
The bones of the riff that's present most of the song (and is the melody in the verse):
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------3---1---0----------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------2------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----3----------------------------------------------------------------------|
(he's obviously doing a lot of guitar noodling, with copious hammers and pulls; I leave those to you)

-Song basically rides that G shape for most of the song, apart from that occasional C (and walk down).


G
Come on, Illinois
There's a fire in the city
We're making noise
You're burning bright and pretty
       C                               C   /B  /A   G
It's a long way just to make it to the bo- or- der line

G
Put your vote in a box
A political action committee
Take what you know
Throw it down the goddamn privy
       C                               C   /B  /A   G
It's a long way just to make it to the bo- or- der line

G
Vivian, you've been a bad girl
You took your mother's lantern and you dropped it in the farmhouse
And you burnt down the city
       C
Oh you pretty young girl
         C     /B  /A  G           
Well you never had a  chance

G
Built your house on a drawbridge
You thought it would protect you but the flames they travel fast here
And they're coming out to get you
       C
Oh you pretty young girl
         C     /B  /A  G           
Well you never had a  chance

           C                               C   /B  /A   G
And it's a long way just to make it to the bo- or- der line
           C                               C   /B  /A   G
And it's a long way just to make it to the bo- or- der line
