Chords and Lyrics


[Em] I’ve seen you rising [Am]to the top
[Em] The lightest substance in the [Am]pond.
[Em] It’s your schemes that [Am]have me worried,
[B7] Not if you’re black or blond. [B7]!


[Em] I’ve seen you grab the [Am]steering wheel.
[Em] It’s true that’s quite a [Am]feat.
[Em] You’re driving home your [Am]freedom
[B7] To folks who need to [B7]eat.


[Em] Sad to think that [Am]maybe yes:
[Em] Them odd folks had it [Am]right:
[Em] If we want no [Am]terrorists,
[B7] Our leaders we must [B7]fight.


Chorus:
[Am] Uncle Sam, you [Am]got a war? [Em]Sorry, I cannot [Em]make it…
[Am] Uncle Sam, give [Am]me free trade? [Em]Sorry, I cannot [Em]take it.
[Am] Uncle Sam, you [Am]want my love? [B7]Sorry I cannot [B7]fake it.
[Em][Am][Em][B7]


[Em] They let us pick the [Am]conman,
[Em] Who does the moneys [Am]bidding,
[Em] Who says: this is de-[Am]mock-racy,
[B7] And of course he’s only [B7]kidding.


[Em] They let us cast a [Am]ballot.
[Em] Oh how very [Am]clever!
[Em] It’s a duty! [Am] It’s a right!
[B7] They never listen, [B7] ever.


Chorus:
[Am] Uncle Sam, you [Am]got a war? [Em]Sorry, I cannot [Em]make it…
[Am] Uncle Sam, give [Am]me free trade? [Em]Sorry, I cannot [Em]take it.
[Am] Uncle Sam, you [Am]want my love? [B7]Sorry I cannot [B7]fake it.
[Em][Am][Em][B7]
