Intro: Em D C (4 times in total)                      

Verse 1:                                              

Em                     D C                        

Colours on the street                                

    Em                 D C                        

Red white and blue

       Em                    D C

People shufflin' their feet

       Em                      D C

People sleepin' in their shoes

              Em                  D    C

But there's a warnin' sign on the road ahead

          Em                           D           C

There's a lot of people sayin' we'd be better off dead

      Em                  D       C

Don't feel like Satan but I'm to them

     Em                  D      C

so I try to forget it anyway I can

Verse 2:

I see a girl in the night

With a baby in her hand

Under an old street light

Near a garbage can

Now she puts the kid away and she's gone to get a hit

She hates her life and what she's done to it

That's one more kid that will never go to school

Never get to fall in love never get to be cool

Keep on rockin' in the free world...(x4)

A(7) x4 (interleave A with A7)

Em D C x4

Verse 3 (not included in the acoustic version):

We got a thousand points of light

For the homeless man

We got a kinder gentler machine gun hand

--->[Here add an additional Em, D and C without lyrics]

We got department stores and toilet paper

Got styrophone boxes for the ozone layer

Got a man of the people says keep hope alive

Got fuel to burn got roads to drive

Keep on rockin' in the free world...(x4)

A(7)x4 (interleave A with A7)

Em D C x4
