Bm
      Em
Dad I know
          A
You can't see
           F#
My actions as
           Bm
A plea for peace

              Em
You can't get past
                  A
The rocks stained red
              F#
The nail bomb blast
            Bm
The doctor, dead

             Em
Your prairie dream
             A
Your liberal heart
             F#
Your patient mind
              Bm
Your father's arms

                Em
They just won't do
                A
They just can't fit
               F#
It's them, not Marx
                  D
You can blame for this

             Bb   A  D
Alive in the dirt
             Em
Alive in the dirt
       F#                 Bm
I'm at peace, sainted and waiting
       F
For my perfect pain to speak through me again


Break: Bm, Em, A, F#, Bm

             Em
Dad, I found God
            A
Through Vietnam
          F#
Mai Lai's graves
      Bm
Agent Orange

             Em
See, we live lies
           A
We have to choose
                F#
Our bombs speak loud
            Bm
So I spoke, too

          Em
Then disappeared
               A
Ten miles from home
       F#
Newark slum
                Bm
Where you won't go

               Em
It's here I've found
          A
My higher self
            F#
A life that works
             D
And suits me well

               Bb   A  D
I pray for the dirt
               Em
I pray for the dirt
       F#                 Bm    F
And I ask to suffer in silence
                G        C
To stay here in hell
             G#   G   C       
Awake in the dirt
             G#   G   Em
Awake in the dirt
             Am        F          
Awake in the dirt now

Bm

           Em
My stutter lifts
              A
My words come clear
            F#
Your little girl
               Bm
She's just not here

     Em
I am sure
      A
At my death
               F#
The truth will float
               Bm
On God's sweet breath

           Em
Until that time
              A
Don't ask for me
            F#
Behind this veil
              D
Is where I'll be

                Bb   A  D            
At one with the dirt
                Em
At one with the dirt
       F#                 Bm   
I'm at peace, sainted and waiting
       F                           Bm
For my perfect pain to cover me for good?

Outro:  Em, A, F#, Bm, Em, A, F#

I think a G sounds better instead of the Em, but I could be wrong.

Everywhere or just in certain parts of the song?

Some fixes to the verse (though there are more problems, too):

Em -> G
F# -> F#m
A -> ?
