[Intro]
Dm Dm Dm Dm
(No Lyrics) 

[Verse 1]
                 Dm                           
Let's start with hope
                             Dm               
I threw in the middle like a skipping stone
    Dm           Dm                             
The ripples won, son of a gun
Dm                                            
Some would not have thought so
      A                       A7         
But I stand here commander in chief.
                Dm                            
And I take that seriously
   
[Verse 2]
              Dm                              
But along the way
        Dm                                    
A rogue ripple turned tidal wave
   Dm                  Dm                       
In reaction to, what I tried to do
  Dm                                          
A rebirth of a nation's hatred
A                         A7                     
Red, white, and blue. Is black in there too?
Dm                                            
   Seriously?

Dm
        
[Bridge 1]
F                                            
One man
              A                              
Rewriting the book on bad behavior
Dm                                            
    Maybe cheats the neighbors
A#                                            
    Feels he gets what they payed for
F                                            
We can't
               A                             
Pat him on the back and send him on through,
Dm                        A#                    
  No man's ignorance will ever be his virtue

        A                                    
Is this best we can be?
A7                Dm                            
     Seriously?

[Verse 3]
              Dm                              
Let's talk of fear
          Dm                                  
And why I don't bring it in here
       Dm                 Dm                    
It's a dangerous word, it spooks the heard
       Dm                                     
And we all bleed in the stampede
A                                  A7              
Fear makes a false friend indeed
              Dm                              
And I take it seriously

[Pre-bridge]
            Dm                                
But hear me now,
           Dm                                 
Before the truth gets drowned out
     Dm                                       
By a demagogue flexing
  Dm                                          
A demagogue flexing
     A                  A7                       
He's history repeating

[Bridge 2]
F                                            
Angry?
     A                                       
Am I angry?
               Dm                    
You ask if I'm angry.
    A#                                        
And I'm at a loss for words

      F                                      
After all we've done,
      A                                      
Every battle hard one,
      Dm                                      
Every hair gone gray
        A#                                    
In this name of this place
     F                                       
In a history plagued
        A                                    
With in-credible mistakes
        Dm                                    
Still I pledge my allegiance to these
  A                      A7                   
U-nited Divided States
Dm
Seriously?

Dm

[Verse 4]
               Dm                             
Let's end with why
       Dm                                     
It's a question I
        Dm              Dm                      
Want to ask of us, as a populace
Dm                                            
Why not take our time
       A                      A7             
Or the weight of the story...

N.C.                                         
...Seriously
