Holiday Chords
I'm not an expert on Green Day but I would think it more likely that this is played half a step down than
with a capo. Lots of versions of this posted, most with bits missing or incorrect, so I thought I'd try 
and do a more complete and accurate version.
Lots of this is played in power chords but  I didn't feel the need to put 5s everywhere, if you are playing
power chords simply ignore the m's on the F#m's.
Comments and corrections welcome

INTRO: F#m D A E x6 

VERSE 1:
F#m      D            A       E

F#m  D           A         C# F#m     D          A       E        C#
To a hymn called faith and misery,and plead, the company lost the war today

Another protester has crossed the line to find the money's on the other side

Can I get another amen

There's a flag wrapped around a score of men, a gag, a plastic bag on a monument

About the artist behind Holiday 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".
