   / Offspring               / I think this really serious song is about this low class-American
  / The Kids Aren't Alright /  who looks back at his childhood in the American ghetto, and realizes
 / Americana               /   that he and his friends never really had a chance to move upwards
/_________________________/    through the American social classes. Quite thought-provoking.

It is 100%. I have the songbook, this is dead on. However, then end is played 6-4 on e and b - doesn't matter though. It's the same notes.
