Intro
[E] [F#m] [C#m]  
[E] [F#m] [C#m]  
Verse 1
Well they t[E]ied that yellow r[F#m]ibbon round the [C#m]oak tree.
They've w[E]orn out all the pr[F#m]ayer in their heart[C#m]s.
All a[A]long thought they were r[E]outing for the h[B]ome team,
As they're s[A]ent to the game and torn apa[B]rt.[C5]
We t[E]wist this tourni[F#m]quet upon the p[C#m]ipeline,
That he c[E]arries all the p[F#m]ain in the world.[C#m]
As we bl[A]indly clap and ch[E]eer from the si[B]delines
It's clear, on a l[A]osing streak from the very s[B]tart.
Chorus
And t[C5]hat's where they found[C#m] me,[A] [E]
In t[B]he cemete[C#m]ry.[A] [E] [B]
A smoking [C#m]gun in my h[A]and,
Now I'm damned[E] for the lan[B]d of the free.[A]
Sing with [B]me,
The american scr[E]eam.

Verse 2
They [E]took that faded r[F#m]ibbon off the o[C#m]ak tree.
They've w[E]orn out all the h[F#m]ope in their h[C#m]earts.
All a[A]long thought I w[E]as doing the ri[B]ght thing,
Now I'm ly[A]ing in a pool of my b[B]lood.
Chorus
And t[C5]hat's where they found[C#m] me,[A] [E]
In t[B]he cemete[C#m]ry.[A] [E] [B]

Now I'm damned[E] for the lan[B]d of the free.[A]
Sing with [B]me,
And that's where they foun[C#m]d me[A],[E]
In t[B]he cemete[C#m]ry.[A] [E] [B]
A smoking [C#m]gun in my h[A]and,
