We Called It America

	  		
Intro: Am C G D (x2) 

verse 1 

              Am            C                         G 
Remember when America had a middle class and an upper class?  
                        D 
That was way before the exodus. 
             Am              C               Bm 
That was the America that we thought was number one,  
G                       D                   Am 
thought would overcome, thought would never die. 
                  Am                   C 
That was just our pride and faith: two shitty deadly sins;  
       G                             D 
I know faith isn't one of 'em but it should have been, 
                        Am                C          Bm 
'Cause when things were crumbling, we had no camaraderie,  
       G                   D               Am 
just a faith someone would save us from despondence.

verse 2 Am C "Number one America" was a slogan used G D to keep morale up when we knew we were already cooked, Am Then the richer western states C Bm G D Am succeeded in secession and the eastern ones followed right behind. Am C Mexi-Can-America was the perfect name G D Am that epitomized the order of significance, authority and affluence. C Bm G We had turned it all around, went from number one, D Am straight to number two (shit).

Solo Am C G F C Bm F Em Bridge Am G F Em National bankruptcy, circumcised society. Am G USA, dined and ditched; F Em Fox reports "poor is the new rich".
