American Jesus  Bad Religion

hey guys, this is just a way to play one of the greatest songs of all time on your own.
Intro: Am F C G x3 Am F
(ad lib on the E for the build up)
[Am]I don't need to be a [F]global citizen
[C]Cause I'm blessed by natio[G]nality
[Am]I'm a member of a [F]growing populace
[C]We enforce our popu[G]larity
[Am]There are things that seem to [F]pull us under and
[C]There are things that [G]drag us down
[Am]But there's a power and a [F]vital presence
C E*
that's lurking all around
(here the tempo speeds up, listen to the song to get it)
[Am]We've [F]Got the Am[C]erican J[G]esus
[Am]See him [F]on the i[C]nterst[G]ate
[Am]We've [F]Got the Am[C]erican J[G]esus
Am F C G Am E*
 
 He helped build the president's esta---a---ate

[Am]I feel sorry for the [F]earth's population
[C]Cause so few live in the [G]USA
[Am]At least the foreigners can [F]copy our morality
[C]They can Visit but they [G]cannot stay
[Am]Only precious few can [F]garner the prosperity
[C]That makes us walk with [G]renewed confidence
[Am]We got a place to [F]go when we die
C E*
And the architect resides right here
[Am]We've [F]Got the Am[C]erican J[G]esus
[Am]See him [F]on the i[C]nterst[G]ate
[Am]We've [F]Got the Am[C]erican J[G]esus
Am F C G Am E*
 
 Overwhelming millions every da----a---ay

(they palm mute although solo acoustic i prefer to do reggae upstrokes)
[Am]He's the farmer's barren fields
[F]The force the army weilds
[C]The expressions on the faces of the st[G]arving children
[Am]The power of the man
[F]The fuel that drives the clan
[C]The motive and the conscience of the [G]murderer
[Am]The preacher on TV
[F]The false sincerity
[C]The form letter that's written by the [G]big computer
[Am]The nuclear bomb
[F]The kids with no mom
C G E*
And I'm fearful that he's inside me
[Am]We've [F]Got the Am[C]erican J[G]esus
[Am]See him [F]on the i[C]nterst[G]ate
[Am]We've [F]Got the Am[C]erican J[G]esus
Am F C G Am E*
 
 Overwhelming millions every da----a---ay

(this next part is the backing vocals sung during the bridge - farmer's barren fields
- but i change it up because it is solo acoustic. i use the same chords as the bridge
the following lyrics)
In God
We Trust
Cause he is one of us
Break down
Cave in
He will redeem your sin
Good heart
Clear mind
And infinately kind
You lose
We win E*
He is our champion
chorus again (or twice if you want) and you're done.
peace.
