Here are the chords for Switchfoot's song "American Dream, from their album,
Oh! Gravity.

~INTRO~

B5   A5 B5   A5 B5   C#5 B5 A5  G#5 F#5 E5  B5

~VERSE~

B5
When success is equated with excess 

The ambition for excess wrecks us

The top of the mind becomes the bottom line

When success is equated with excess

If your time ain't been nothing for money

I start to feel really bad for your honey

Maybe honey put your money where your mouth's been running

If your time ain't been nothing but money

~PRE-CHORUS~

E5     F#5         G#5                A5
I want out of this machine it doesn't feel like freedom

~CHORUS~

B5                     E5     A5
This ain't my American dream
B5                         E5            A5
I want to live and die for bigger things
C#5                            F#5
I'm tired of fighting for just me
                       B5
This ain't my American dream

~INTERLUDE~

(B5)  A5 B5   A5 B5   C#5 B5 A5  G#5 F#5 E5  B5

~VERSE 2~

B5
When success is equated with excess

When you're fighting for the Beamer the Lexus

As the heart and soul breathe in the company goals

Where success is equated with excess

~REPEAT PRE-CHORUS~

~REPEAT CHORUS~

~BRIDGE~
B5
'Cause baby's always talkin' 'bout a ring

And talk has always been the cheapest thing
 
Is it true would you do what I want you to
     E5                               B5
If I show up with the right amount of bling
C#5    B5       A5 G#5   F#5 E5  B5
Like a puppet on a monetary string
C#5    B5       A5 G#5   F#5 E5  C#5               F#5
Maybe we've been caught singing red white blue and green
N.C
But that ain't my America

That ain't my American dream

~REPEAT CHORUS~

~OUTRO~

B5   C#5 B5 A5  G#5 F#5 E5  B5

If you want to play these chords not in fifths, it sounds good that way too,
but not quit right. I hope you enjoy this tab.

Peace, Love, I'm out.
