Across from the prison and beside the great lake
Am                      G        F      Cm     F Cm F
Below the rooftops and above the highways
    F                                        F      Cm     F Cm F
The spirits pay rental on the basements they haunt

And the pages just draw pictures of the things that they want

I cook my dinner on the blacktop street
 Am             G         F
I come from the nation of heat

Outside the train station there's a bold painted sign
        Am                      G                F      Cm     F Cm F
It says try to be patient don't forget to choose sides
           F                            F      Cm     F Cm F
We got the loudest explosions you ever heard
       Am                      G          F      Cm     F Cm F
We got two dollar soldiers and ten dollar words
     Am                 G              F         Cm
If I didn't own boots I wouldn't need feet
 Am              G        F         
I come from the nation of heat


Repeat intro again during the harmonica part.

So swift and so vicious are the carnival rides
        Am                        G          F      Cm     F Cm F
And the carnival barker yell your name for a bribe
       F                               F      Cm     F Cm F
we got billboards for love and Japanese cars
         Am                            G               F      Cm     F Cm F
It ain't rare to hear the streetlights call themselves stars
    Am                    G           F         Cm
The more that I learn the more that I cheat
 Am             G         F
I come from the nation of heat


Repeat intro during the harmonica part.


Verse 4:
F                              F      F      Cm     F Cm F
I've seen skeleton mothers and hungry folks
           Am                                 G          F      Cm     F Cm F
Across the street from the kitchens that cook dinner for most
    F                                         F      Cm     F Cm F
Sometimes you hear whispers by the dark of the moon
        Am                    G           F      Cm     F Cm F
That we promised too much and gave it too soon
Am                      G          F         Cm
Even our coughs and our fevers compete
 Am             G         F
I come from the nation of heat


Repeat intro again during the harmonica part.


Verse 5:
F                               F         F      Cm     F Cm F
Blockin borders with smiles are immigrant sons
           Am                       G         F      Cm     F Cm F
we measure loneliness and miles and misery in tons
          F                                    F      Cm     F Cm F
There's a straw-hatted man rowing away from the shore
                 Am                            G           F        Cm     F Cm F
Who says "It's a shame they don't let you have slaves here anymore"
        Am               G           F         Cm
I'm the ugliest man that you'll ever meet
 Am             G         F
I come from the nation of heat
