Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
ok the other version of this totally slaughtered the names of the chords so i'm 
rewriting it with the correct chord names...

G=320033
D=000232
Cadd9=032033
C=032010
Em=022000
F=133211 (bar)

by the way, the F's in the chorus really arent neccisary but thats how Rich does it.

    G              Cadd9           G               Cadd9
My daddy taught me in this country everyones the same
    G              Cadd9           G               Cadd9
You work hard for your dollar and you never pass the blame
    Cadd9
When it dont go your way
    G              Cadd9              G             Cadd9
Now I see all these big shots whining on my evening news
    G              Cadd9              G             Cadd9
About how their losing billions and its up to me and you
    Cadd9                     G   Cadd9 G Cadd9
To come running to            the rescue


    D              Em             C
Well, pardon me if I dont shed a tear
    D              Em             C
There selling make believe and we dont buy that here


Chorus:
               Em               C               G
Because in the real world their shuttin Detroit down
              Em              D         Cadd9          D
While the boss man takes his bonus paid jets on out of town
     Em               C             G       F       C
DCs bailing out them bankers as the farmers auction ground
      G           F                   C                          G
Yeah, while there living up on Wall Street in that New York City town
             G               D               Em     C
Here in the real world their shuttin Detroit down
             G               D               G
Here in the real world their shuttin Detroit down


Verse 2:
    G              Cadd9           G               Cadd9
Well that old mans been working in that plant most all his life
    G              Cadd9           G               Cadd9
Now his pension plans been cut in half and he cant afford to die
                        Cadd9
And its a crying shame, cus he aint the one to Blame
    G              Cadd9           G               Cadd9
When I looked down to see his calloused hands
    G              Cadd9           G               Cadd9
Well let me tell you friend it gets me fightin mad

Chorus:
               Em               C               G
Because in the real world their shuttin Detroit down
              Em              D         Cadd9          D
While the boss man takes his bonus paid jets on out of town
     Em               C             G       F       C
DCs bailing out them bankers as the farmers auction ground                      
      G          F             C                                 G
Yeah, while there living up on Wall Street in that New York City town
             G               D               Em     C
Here in the real world their shuttin Detroit down
             G               D               G
Here in the real world their shuttin Detroit down


G                F            C                                 G
Yeah while there living up on Wall Street in that New York City town
            G                D               Em     C
