  "Men..."   "Judgment..." "Decided..." "Seems.."

[Verse 1] (Chords)
         A               D
We'll be fighting in the streets
         A               D
With our children at our feet
        A                D               E    C G
And the morals that they worship will be gone
        A                  D
And the men who spurred us on
       A                D
Sit in judgement of all wrong
       A            D                 E    C G
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

[Chorus]
     D      A          D         A
I'll tip my hat to the new constitution,
D      A           D       A
Take a bow for the new revolution,
D         A           D          A
Smile and grin at the change all around me,
G                     E
Pick up my guitar and play
G               E
Just like yesterday
          G                   D   G D
Then I'll get on my knees and pray...

We don't get fooled again

 "World..."           "History..."    "Banners..."

[Verse 2]
    A                 D
The change, it had to come,
   A            D
We knew it all along
        A         D                     E   C G
We were liberated from the fold, that's all
        A                    D
And the world looks just the same
    A             D
And history ain't changed
           A                 D                 E   C G
'Cause the banners, they are flown in the next war

[Bridge] (chords)
     B
I'll move myself and my family aside,
E
If we happen to be left half alive!
     A
I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky,
         B
Though I know that the hypnotized never lie...

It's very hard to tell what's going on during the solo cuz there's the sythesizer and 
guitar overlaying, so, especially for the first part, this gives the right idea, but may 
every single note.

There's nothing in the streets

Looks any different to me
        A             D              E   C  G
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
        A              D
And the parting on the left
        A              D
Are now parting on the right
        A                     D             E  C  G

This also gets pretty crazy towards the end, so listen to the song to grasp what's going 
and this should make sense.
