Since this song was written and recorded on the keyboard I made up the guitar as best I 
could without a rhythm guitar to base it off of. It makes a lot more sense with the capo 
than it did without, as I had it written before.

Capo 1

Verse 1:

     C                F/C         C
It's coming through a hole in the air
           C           G       C
From those nights in Tiananmen Square
     F                              Bb/F          F
It's coming from the feel that this ain't exactly real
        C            F/C           C
Or it's real, but it ain't exactly there
         E                               Am
From the wars against disorder, from the sirens night and day
         E                               Am
From the fires of the homeless, from the ashes of the gay
  G                 F            C
Democracy is coming   to the U.S.A.

Verse 2:

     C                F/C          C
It's coming through a crack in the wall
     C         G            C
On a visionary flood of alcohol
         F                         Bb/F          F
From the staggering account of the Sermon on the Mount
        C                F/C           C
Which I don't pretend to understand at all
      E                             Am
It's coming from the silence on the dock of the bay
         E                                     Am
From the brave, the bold, the battered heart of   Chevrolet
  G                 F            C
Democracy is coming   to the U.S.A.

Verse 3:

     C               F/C           C
It's coming from the sorrow in the street
    C           G               C
The holy places where the races meet
         F                            Bb/F          F
From the homicidal bitchin' that goes down in every kitchen
     C                F/C                C
To determine who will serve and who will eat
         E                                 Am
From the wells of disappointment where the women kneel to pray
        E                                        Am
For the grace of God in the desert here, and the desert far away
  G                 F            C
Democracy is coming   to the U.S.A.

Bridge 1:

     G        F
Sail on, sail on
  C
O mighty Ship of State
       G
To the Shores of Need
         F
Past the Reefs of Greed
            C
Through the Squalls of Hate
     Dm       G        F        C
Sail on, sail on, sail on, sail on

Verse 4:

     C         F/C     C
It's coming to America first
    C             G               C
The cradle of the best and of the worst
     F                                 Bb/F        F
It's here they got the range and the machinery for change
         C                 F/C       C
And it's here they got the spiritual thirst
     E                                 Am
It's here the family's broken and it's here the lonely say
         E                          Am
That the heart has got to open in a fundamental way
  G                 F            C

Verse 5:

     C               F/C           C
It's coming from the women and the men
   C              G            C
Ah baby, we'll be making love again
         F                       Bb/F          F
We'll be going down so deep, the river's gonna weep
        C                F/C    C
And the mountain's gonna shout Amen
     E                             Am
It's coming like the tidal flood beneath the lunar sway
  E                      Am
Imperial, mysterious, in amorous array
  G                 F            C

Verse 6:

         C              F/C         C
I'm sentimental, if you know what I mean
           C           G                 C
I love the country but I can't stand the scene
        F                               Bb/F           F
And I'm neither left or right, I'm just staying home tonight
        C            F/C             C
Getting lost in that hopeless little screen
        E                                   Am
But I'm stubborn as those garbage bags that Time cannot decay
    E                                  Am
I'm junk but I'm still holding up this little wild bouquet
  G                 F            C

The first chord on that last line of the bridge where he says "sail on" four times should be D#m, not F#m. Other than that I'm 99% sure it's perfect. Some of the chords might not line up right but that's it.
