Democracy

  		Intro: A  Dm  A 

Verse 1:

A D A It's coming through a hole in the air A D A From those nights in Tiananmen Square D Dm It's coming from the feel that this ain't exactly real A Or it's real, but it ain't exactly there C# From the wars against disorder F#m From the sirens night and day C# From the fires of the homeless F#m From the ashes of the gay E D A Democracy is coming to the USA

Verse 2:

A D A It's coming through a crack in the wall A D A On a visionary flood of alcohol D Dm From the staggering account of the Sermon on the Mount A Which I don't pretend to understand at all C# F#m It's coming from the silence on the dock of the bay C# F#m From the brave, the bold, the battered heart of Chevrolet E D A Democracy is coming to the USA

Verse 3:

A D A It's coming from the sorrow in the street A D A The holy places where the races meet D From the homicidal bitchin' Dm That goes down in every kitchen A To determine who will serve and who will eat C# From the wells of disappointment F#m Where the women kneel to pray C# For the grace of God in the desert here F#m And the desert far away E D A Democracy is coming to the USA

E D Sail on, sail on A O mighty ship of state E To the shores of need D Past the reefs of greed A Through the squalls of hate Bm E D A Sail on, sail on, sail on

Verse 4:

A D A It's coming to America first A D A The cradle of the best, of the worst D It's here they've got the range Dm And the machinery for change A And it's here they've got the spiritual thirst C# It's here the family's broken F#m And it's here the lonely say C# That the heart has got to open F#m In a fundamental way E D A Democracy is coming to the USA

Verse 5:

A D A It's coming from the women and the men A D A Oh baby, we'll be making love again D We'll be going down so deep Dm That the river's going to weep A And the mountain's gonna shout "Amen" C# F#m It's coming like the tidal flood beneath the lunar sway C# F#m Imperial, mysterious, in amorous array E D A Democracy is coming to the USA

Interlude: A Dm A Dm A

Verse 6:

A D A I'm sentimental, if you know what I mean A D A Oh, I love the country, but I can't stand the scene D Dm And I'm neither left or right, I'm just staying home tonight A Getting lost in that hopeless little screen C# F#m But I'm stubborn as those garbage bags that time cannot decay C# F#m I'm junk, but I'm still holding up this little wild bouquet E D A Democracy is coming to, to the USA D A To the USA D A To the USA D A To the USA
