That Ain't My America

	  		

Intro: G C G C 

G                               C                             
Sometimes I wanna light up underneath the no-smoking sign  
G                                    C 
Sometimes I wish they'd tell me, how justice got so blind  
  Em                                C         
I wish they'd just leave me alone 'cause I'm doing alright  
        G         D         Em       D        C        D         G   
You can take your change on down the road and leave me here with mine  

G                    Em        
'Cause that ain't my America   
     C                    G    
That ain?t this country's roots  
                   Em 
You wanna slam old Uncle Sam  
C                   D    
But I ain't letting you  
    G      D            Em     D     C          C/B        Am 
I'm mad as hell and you know I still bleed Red, White, and Blue  
           C 
That ain't us  
              G         C   
That Ain't My America  
              G         C 
That Ain't My America  


G    
I was standing there in Dallas  
C 
Waitin on a plane  
  G 
I overheard an old man  
C 
Tell a young soldier "thanks"  
         Em                                    C 
The young soldier hung his head and said "it's hard to believe  
           G    D       Em       D       C     D       G 
You're the only one who took the time to say a word to me"  
G 
And the old man said...  


G             Em         
That ain't my America  
C                         G 
That aint this country's roots  
                   Em  
You wanna slam old Uncle Sam  
C                    D 
But I ain't letting you  
    G      D            Em     D     C          C/B        Am  
I'm mad as hell and you know I still bleed Red, White, and Blue  
           C 
That ain't us  
              G        C   
That Ain't My America  
              Em       D       
That Ain't My America  




Bm                                                  C            
It's to the women and men who in their hands hold a Bible and a gun  
Am                                             C              D  G  C  G  C       
And they ain't afraid of nothing, when they're holding either one  


            G 
Now there's kids who can't pray in school  
     C 
$100 dollar tanks of gas  
      G                                      
I can tell you right now this country ain't  

D (STOP) 
AIN'T SUPPOSED TO BE LIKE THAT!  

NO!  

G                    Em 
'Cause that ain't my America  
     C                      G 
That aint this country's roots  
                   Em  
You wanna slam old Uncle Sam  
C                     D 
But I ain't letting you  
    G      D            Em     D     C          C/B        Am 
I'm mad as hell and you know I still bleed Red, White, and Blue  
          C 
That ain't us  
C 
That Ain't My  
              G       C    
That Ain't My America  
              G       C   G      C 
That Ain't My America  
              G       C    
That Ain't My America
