My Country
Nahko and Medicine for the People - My Country

If you don't understand the "slash" chords you can just play the chord of the first letter.
eg for D/F# just play a D chord. The intro is optional, it is a spoken word sample, the location of
the G chord is where the guitar fades in.

[Intro]
N.C.
We feel that racism and sexism and class seperation
                       G
That these are desecrations
                     G
And we feel that the american flag does not represent
                G
Integrity, honor, justice or truth

[Verse 1]
G           D/F#
My country 'tis of thee
Em            C/G
Sweet land of poverty
G     D/F#   G
  For thee I weep

G
  Land where my mother cried
D/F#
  Land where my father died
Em               C/G
  Sweet land of genocide
G       D/F#   G        G
  Pride of my  heart

[Verse 2]
G            D/F#
 My country 'tis of thee
Em            C/G
Sweet land of industry
G      D/F#       G
 We'll break your back

G
 Clean out your minerals
D/F#
 Fill you with chemicals
Em                    C/G
  We kill for what is profitable
G   D/F#     G         G
 Oh concrete world

[Verse 3]
G             D/F#
 Our climate's suffering
Em            C/G
   All nature feels the sting
G      D/F#   G
  Poisoned    progress

G
 All of these mouths to feed
D/F#
  All of this land to seed
Em            C/G
  From sea to shining sea
G      D/F#    G         G
  Gold under - ground

[Verse 4]
G            D/F#
  Our people left to die
Em            C/G
  Battlefield country-side
G       D/F#    G
  Paved-over    graves

G                         D/F#
 Suburban privileges make      desolate villages
Em                        C/G
  Broken treaties, Broken promises
G     D/F#  G        G
  Conquer,  repeat

[Verse 5]
G              D/F#
  All warriors represent
Em             C/G
  Remind those who forget
G     D/F#    G
  The time is now
G
  To walk in humble pride
D/F#
  Prepare and fortify
Em                   C/G
  Resist comforts of compromise

[Outro]
G      D/F#     G
  Pray for guidance
G      D/F#     G
  Pray for guidance
G      D/F#     G      G
  Pray for guidance
