Am   C   G   D x 2


[Verse 1]

              Am            C                         G
Remember when America had a middle class and an upper class? 
                        D
That was way before the exodus.
             Am              C               Bm
That was the America that we thought was number one, 
G                       D                   Am
thought would overcome, thought would never die.
                  Am                   C
That was just our pride and faith: two shitty deadly sins; 
       G                             D
I know faith isn't one of 'em but it should have been,
                        Am                C          Bm
'Cause when things were crumbling, we had no camaraderie, 
       G                   D               Am
just a faith someone would save us from despondence.


[Chorus]

             Am       C    G   F
We called it America, whoa.
             Am       C     D
We called it America, whoa.


[Verse 2]

            Am             C
"Number one America" was a slogan used 
        G                                D
to keep morale up when we knew we were already cooked,
                Am
Then the richer western states 
C            Bm                G            D                Am
succeeded in secession and the eastern ones followed right behind.
         Am              C
Mexi-Can-America was the perfect name 
     G                       D                           Am
that epitomized the order of significance, authority and affluence.
       C             Bm                G
We had turned it all around, went from number one, 
D                  Am
straight to number two (shit).


[Chorus]

             Am       C    G   F
We called it America, whoa.
             Am       C     D
We called it America, whoa.


[Solo]

Am   C    G    F
C    Bm   F    Em


[Bridge]

Am       G           F           Em
National bankruptcy, circumcised society.
Am   G
USA, dined and ditched; 
F            Em
Fox reports "poor is the new rich".


[Chorus/Outro]

             Am       C    G   F
We called it America, whoa.
             Am       C     D
We called it America, whoa.
             Am       C    G   F
We called it America, whoa.
             Am       C     D
We called it America, whoa.
             Am   Am
We called it America
