Guitar 1:

F                     C

It's another night in hell
              F             C         
Another child won't live to tell
                F         C                       F-C
Can you imagine what it's like to starve to death 
       F           C

And as we sit free and well
            F          C

Another soldier has to yell
            F          C                 F        C

Tell my wife and children I love them in his last breath
          F   C    F   C    F   C    F   C

C'mon now,,,

Fill 1:  Guitar 2: (with WAH + slight DIST)
|-08-| (Note:  Do not fully fret the chord to get the WAH right)
|-08-| ***Listen for "groove" of rhythm***
|-08-| Repeat throughout the 2nd verse & chorus.

F        C                  F            C

Habitual offenders, scumbag lawyers with agendas
              F               C                          F-C
I'll tell you sometimes people I don't know what's worse
F       C                  F              C

Natural disasters or these wolves in sheep clothes pastors
    F               C                 F           C

Now God damn it I'm scared to send my children to church
        F           C                  F               C

And how can we seek salvation when our nations race relations
       F             C               F-C
Got me feeling guilty of being white
    F              C              F            C              F

But faith in human nature, our creator and our savior, I'm no saint
      C                  F      C

But I believe in what is right

Fill 2: Guitar 2: (with WAH)

          F   C    F   C  
                  (Guitar 1: Fill 1)
C'mon now,
       F   C    F    C

I said,
(Guitar 1: Fill 1 cont...)

Verse 3:  
Guitar 1: Use Fill 1, but rhythm changes with emphasis on high E & B                        
     F                    C

Stop pointing fingers and take some blame
F                C

Pull your future away from the flame
F             C                     F-C
Open up your mind and start to live
     F                   C

Stop short changing your neighbors
           F             C           
Living off hand outs and favors, and maybe
F                 C             F      C          
Give a little bit more than you got to give
F        C         F        C

Simplify, testify, identify, rectify
       F      C                  F      C

And if I get high stop being so uptight
     F          C          F          C

                          (Fill 2)
It's only human nature and I am not a stranger
   F              C                   F-C
So baby won't you stay with me tonight

Fill 3: Guitar 1 is clean (kind of country twang)


Chord Progression>>> Guitar 1: A-G2-F2-A-G2


Lead Solo 1:  Guitar (3):





       G2//////                 F2/////
It's a matter of salvation from them patience up above,
         G2/////                     F2/////
So don't give up so damn easy on the one you love, one you love

Guitar 2:


Piano Only (Guitar 1 can play th F-C chords)

Somewhere you got a brother, sister, friend, grandmother, niece or nephew
Just dying to be with you
You know there's someone out there who unconditionally, religiously, loves you
So just hold on 'cause you know it's true
And if you can take the pain
And you can withstand anything, and one day
Stand hand in hand with the truth

I said amen, I said amen
I said amen, I said amen,
