21st Century Breakdown Chords (ver 2) - Green Day

21st Century Breakdown Chords
Artist: Green Day
Song: 21st Century Breakdown
Album: 21st Century Breakdown
Tuning: Half Step

notes: Yes this isn't the best formatting for this, but bear with me. I'm going to
change the was this is set up. Also, this is tuned a HALF STEP down, but the
chords you're going to play the chords as if it was standard tuning which is very
important on the last part of the song. Later on I will make these chords much better.

A				     D

My name is 'No one' your long lost son

Born on the 4th of July

Raised in the barnyards of heroes and cons

Left me for dead or alive
D		         G   A   D
There is a war that's inside my head

That questions the results and lies
         D		       G    A     D
I'm breaking my back till I'm better off dead

We are not payed enough to survive

Chord changes from D to G. Listen for change in song

D		  G     A   D
I am an engine, a worker, a pawn

My debt to the status quo
D			       G  A     D
The scars on my hands and a means to an end

It's all that I have to show
D			G   A   D
I'm taking a loan on my sa  ni  ty

For the redemption of my soul
D			   G    A   D
Well I am exempt from this tra  ge  dy

And the 21st century fall

I praise liber  ty, the freedom to o  bey
	 G	      A	   D
It's a song that strangles me

    D       Db      B
Oh, dream, American dream
   A           G
I can't even sleep
     A#              D
From rainstorms till dawn
    D       Db     B
Oh, bleed, America bleed
  A              G
Believe what you read
From heroes and cons

About the artist behind 21st Century Breakdown Chords:

Green Day is an American punk trio formed in 1987.[1] The band has consisted of Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals, guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass guitar, vocals), and Tré Cool (drums, percussion) for the majority of its existence.

Green Day was originally part of the punk rock scene at 924 Gilman Street in Berkeley, California. Its early releases for independent record label Lookout! Records earned them a grassroots fanbase, some of whom felt alienated when the band signed to a major label.[2] Nevertheless, its major label debut Dookie (1994) became a breakout success and eventually sold over 10 million copies in the U.S. alone, and 15 million copies sold worldwide.[3] As a result, Green Day was widely credited, alongside fellow California punk bands The Offspring and Rancid, with reviving mainstream interest in and popularizing punk rock in the United States.[4][5] Green Day's three follow-up albums, Insomniac, Nimrod and Warning did not achieve the massive success of Dookie, but they were still successful, reaching double platinum and gold status respectively.[6] Green Day's 2004 rock opera American Idiot reignited the band's popularity with a younger generation, selling five million copies in the U.S.[7]

The band has sold over 65 million records worldwide,[8] including 22 million in the United States alone.[9] They also have three Grammy Awards, Best Alternative Album for Dookie, Best Rock Album for American Idiot, and Record of the Year for "Boulevard of Broken Dreams".
