Neil, I hope you approve of this version of the lyrics! 

Intro - Dm Bb Gm-A(barred) (repeat to your liking; on the record the song opens
with what sounds like an extended jam)

Dm             C(barred)
Neo Con better keep your head
Bb                     G7
Don't forget what your Good Book says
Dm                 C(barred)     Bb
Human Rights gonna come at last
                    G7             Dm
Now your doctrines are burnin' fast, Neo Con

Bb Gm-A(barred)  Dm Bb Gm-A(barred)

Dm              Bb      Gm-A(barred)
I saw crude oil burnin' black
Dm              Bb          Gm-A(barred)
Mercenaries and Third World shacks
Dm              Bb          Gm-A(barred)
Neo Con when will you pay them back
                  Gm-A(barred)
I heard screamin' and canine barkin'
Gm-A(barred)         Gm-A(barred)
Hoods and head games, how long, how long

Dm Bb Gm-A(barred) (repeat to your liking)

Dm                  Bb        Gm-A(barred)
Neo Con your greedy corporate mind
Dm                        Bb  Gm-A(barred)
is ruining lives with oil war combines
Dm                       Bb       Gm-A(barred)
Swear by God revenge has made you blind
                  Gm-A(barred)
I heard screamin' and canine barkin'
Gm-A(barred)         Gm-A(barred)
Hoods and head games, how long, how long

Dm Bb Gm-A(barred) (repeat to your liking for jam possibilities)

Dm             C(barred)
Neo Con better keep your head
Bb                     G7
Don't forget what your Good Book says
Dm                 C(barred)      Bb
Human Rights gonna come at last
                    G7             Dm
Now your doctrines are burnin' fast, Neo Con

Bb Gm-A(barred) (repeat to your liking for jam possibilities)

(I'm sure you all have also noticed the variations of the Dm chord by varying the
number 1 and number 3 fingers on and off the fingerboard to make the sounds at the
start of the basic chord progression at a couple different places in the song)

Sorry you feel that way 6stingto12. Actually, I think he'd like the lyrics. He probably knows how to spell too.

I like the sentament behind this, but please, if it aint broke don't fix it. This is one of the Godfather's best. It doesn't need to be modified in any way.
