[Intro]
C                          C
Hey, do you know about the U.S.A.?
                      G
Do you know about the government?
                          C     F C
Can you tell me about the Constitution?
F    G                   C
Hey, learn about the U.S.A.

[Verse 1]
C            
In 1787 I'm told
    F                C
Our founding fathers did agree
C
To write a list of principles
    D              G
For keepin' people free.

[Pre-Chorus]
C
The U.S.A. was just startin' out.
  F                   C
A whole brand-new country.
C
And so our people spelled it out
    G                     C
The things that we should be.

[Talky-Bit 1]
C                                     C
And they put those principles down on paper
    F                   C
and called it the Constitution, and it's been
C
helping us run our country ever since then.
G
The first part of the Constitution is called the
C                             F
preamble and tells what those founding
                   C     G
fathers set out to do.

[Chorus]
C
We the people,
   F
In order to form a more perfect union,
C                                           G
Establish justice, insure domestic tranquility,
C
Provide for the common defense,
F
Promote the general welfare and
C
Secure the blessings of liberty
G                    G7
To ourselves and our posterity
   C          F              G
Do ordain and establish this Constitution for
F                   G     C
the United States of America.

[Verse 2]
C 
In 1787 I'm told
    F                C
Our founding fathers all sat down
C
And wrote a list of principles
       D                G
That's known the world around.

[Pre-Chorus]
C
The U.S.A. was just starting out
  F                   C
A whole brand-new country.
C
And so our people spelled it out
              G            C
They wanted a land of liberty.

[Talky Bit 2]
                                G
And the Preamble goes like this:

[Chorus]
C
We the people,
   F
In order to form a more perfect union,
C                                           G
Establish justice, insure domestic tranquility,
C
Provide for the common defense,
F
Promote the general welfare and
C
Secure the blessings of liberty
G                    G7
To ourselves and our posterity
   C          F     C         G
Do ordain and establish this Constitution for
F                   G     C
the United States of America.
    F          G              C
For the United States of America...
