The Mountain Goats' "Commandante" from the album Devil in the Shortwave.  This song rocks.


               G                 D
I'm gonna drink more whiskey than Brendan Behan
           C                       G
I'm gonna send my belongings all to Tripoli
             C            G
And I'm gonna ride home to California
  D       C         G
With a banjo on my knee
      G                     D
I'm never gonna turn off the television
           C                    G
I'm just gonna let it run all night
            C                    G
I'm gonna plant root vegetables out in the back yard
            D                    D7
And come summer, I am going to treat you right
    C                        G
So put on your Chairman Mao coat
     C                 G
And let me clear my throat
     Bm                   C
Let's turn this whole town upside down
  C                                 D
Shake it 'til the coins come falling out of its pocket
     C                         G
Yeah, put on your Che Guevara pin
  C                G
Call the troops on in
           Em                      D
We're gonna sail through the night sky
      C                 G
Like a pair of bottle rockets

          G                       D
I got a great big secret written down somewhere
         C                            G
I got a rosary to protect us both from harm
       C                       G
I got a storage locker full of cow figurines
        D                          D7
And a laundry list of grievances longer than my arm
        C                   G
And I am never going back to Cincinatti
         C                                G
All those bridges have been burned down to the ground
         C           G
I got the jetpack strapped to my back
       D                       D7
And I'm waiting for you to come around
     C                           G
Yeah, put on your Chairman Mao coat
   C                G
And let me clear my throat
     Bm                    C
Let's turn this whole place upside down, yes
  C                                 D
Shake it 'til the coins come falling out of its pockets
     C                       G
Yeah, put on your Che Guevara pin
 C                 G
Call the troops on in
           Em                       D
We're gonna sail through the night sky
  (muted)           C      G
Like a pair of bottle rockets

outro:  G D C G C G D D7 C G C G C G D G
