[Intro]

Gsus2     D
Gsus2     D
Gsus2     D
    A       

[Verse 1]

A                         Gsus2           D
  You know the reasons I can't conceal 
                          Gsus2                     D
You know I'm leaving you; Obviously, you know how I feel 
                    Gsus2             D           A
It's not as easy as callin' out your name when I'm down
                      Gsus2             D
It's not a matter for wrong or right
                          Gsus2                    D
It ain't much better than drinking and looking to fight
                      Gsus2             D             A
You know I'm tired of crawling 'hind my name among the crowd 


[Chorus]

           D              A
I'm on the last american exit to the north land
           D              A
I'm on the last american exit to my homeland
           D              A
I'm on the last american exit to my last chance 
          Gsus2           D              A
They keep callin' out my name, I shout it down

Gsus2     D
Gsus2     D
Gsus2     D
    A     

[Verse 2]

A                            Gsus2             D
  You've made them wonder and know for sure
                           Gsus2                       D
You've made them hunger at night and then run for the door 
                        Gsus2              D              A   
You know you'll probably cry like Caesar's son when you're found
                         Gsus2             D
It's not your face, it's another town 
                      Gsus2                   D
Let's face it baby; I'm up and then baby, I'm down 
                       Gsus2                D              A
You'll watch the border offer you fame-       and watch you drown

[Chorus]

           D              A
I'm on the last american exit to the north land
           D              A
I'm on the last american exit to my homeland
           D              A
I'm on the last american exit to my last chance 
          Gsus2           D              A
They keep callin' out my name, I shout it down

[Bridge]

Gsus2                      D
  Know your neighbors and know they'll take us
Gsus2                 D
  Know my city, it's just like theirs are 
Gsus2                D                         A
  Hope I make it, I know I'm gonna make it somehow 
Gsus2                D
  Know my savior, he knows you shakers
Gsus2                D
  Know my pity, I'll see you later 
Gsus2                    D                          A
  I'd like to stay but I know it doesn't matter somehow

[Outro]

           D              A
I'm on the last american exit to the north land
           D              A
I'm on the last american exit to my homeland
           D              A
I'm on the last american exit to my last chance 
          Gsus2           D
They keep callin' out my name
          Gsus2           D
They keep callin' out my name
          Gsus2           D              A
They keep callin' out my name, I shout it down

[end on a D chord]
