Capo on the 2nd fret, chords are natural.

  Bm  F#m  D  Dadd9  G6  Em  A  A alternative (also sounds good)


the intro is single notes A D C#

Bm          F#m      Bm
I'm just an American boy 
D         Dadd9  D
Raised on  M  T  V
         G6             Bm          Em       Bm
And I've seen all those kids in the soda pop ads
Bm              F#m         Bm
But none of 'em looked like me

So I started lookin' around 
For a light out of the dim
And the first thing I heard that made sense was the word
Of Mohammed, peace be upon him

D          A          Em       
A shadu la ilaha illa Allah  (pronounced A shadu laila hailla Allah)
G                  F#m
There is no God but God

If my daddy could see me now
With chains around my feet
He don't understand that sometimes a man
Has got to fight for what he believes

And I believe God is great,
All praise due to him
And if I should die, I'll rise up to the sky
Just like Jesus, peace be upon him

A shadu la ilaha illa Allah
There is no God but God

Guitar break  Bm D A Em D A  then play single notes D C#

We came to fight the Jihad 
And our hearts were pure and strong
As death filled the air we all offered up prayers
And prepared for our martyrdom

But Allah had some other plan,
Some secret not revealed
Now they're dragging me back with my head in a sack
To the land of the infidel

A shadu la ilaha illa Allah
A shadu la ilaha illa Allah

Thanks to Doug Floyd and Gareth Owen for getting me started on this one.
