[Chords]
Em (022000)
G  (320033)
G6 (302033)
D  (xx0232)
C  (302010)

(The G6 chord is really just lifting your index finger from the A string and 
hammering it on the D string (2nd fret). Listen to the song for timing.)

[Intro]
Em    D  G G6 G  X4

[Verse 1]
G                            C              G      G6     G G6 G
Across from the prison and beside the great lake
Em                      D        G      G6     G G6 G
Below the rooftops and above the highways
    C                                        G      G6     G G6 G
The spirits pay rental on the basements they haunt
        Em                              D                G      G6     G G6 G
And the pages just draw pictures of the things that they want
  Em                    D        G         G6
I cook my dinner on the blacktop street
 Em             D         G    G6     G G6 G
I come from the nation of heat


[Verse 2]
G                                   C            G      G6     G G6 G
Outside the train station there's a bold painted sign
        Em                      D                G      G6     G G6 G
It says try to be patient don't forget to choose sides
           C                            G      G6     G G6 G
We got the loudest explosions you ever heard
       Em                      D          G      G6     G G6 G
We got two dollar soldiers and ten dollar words
     Em                 D              G         G6
If I didn't own boots I wouldn't need feet
 Em             D         G    G6     G G6 G    
I come from the nation of heat


[Verse 3]
G                               C        G      G6     G G6 G
So swift and so vicious are the carnival rides
        Em                        D          G      G6     G G6 G
And the carnival barker yell your name for a bribe
       C                                G      G6     G G6 G
we got billboards for love and Japanese cars
         Em                            D               G      G6     G G6 G
It ain't rare to hear the streetlights call themselves stars
    Em                    D           G         G6
The more that I learn the more that I cheat
 Em             D         G       
I come from the nation of heat

[Harmonica solo]
Em    D  G G6 G    x4 

[Verse 4]
G                              C      G      G6     G G6 G
I've seen skeleton mothers and hungry folks
           Em                                 D          G      G6     G G6 G
Across the street from the kitchens that cook dinner for most
    C                                          G      G6     G G6 G
Sometimes you hear whispers by the dark of the moon
        Em                    D           G      G6     G G6 G
That we promised too much and gave it too soon
Em                      D          G         G6
Even our coughs and our fevers compete
 Em             D         G    G6     G G6 G   
I come from the nation of heat


[Verse 5]
G                               C         G      G6     G G6 G
Blockin borders with smiles are immigrant sons
           Em                       D         G      G6     G G6 G
we measure loneliness and miles and misery in tons
          C                                     G      G6     G G6 G
There's a straw-hatted man rowing away from the shore
                 Em                            D              G    G6     G G6 G
Who says "It's a shame they don't let you have slaves here anymore"
        Em               D           G         G6
I'm the ugliest man that you'll ever meet
 Em             D         G
I come from the nation of heat

It's actually a half step lower so the capo is not needed. He does play it live one half step lower with a capo though.
