VERSE 1:
Em                   D  C
There's colors 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
There's a lot of people sayin'
D          C
We'd be better off dead
Em
Don't feel like satan
D     C
But I am to them
Em                    D     C
So I try to forget it, any way I can

G          D                            C    E* Em
Keep on rockin' in the free world
G          D                            C    E* Em
Keep on rockin' in the free world
G          D                            C    E* Em
Keep on rockin' in the free world
G          D                            C    E* Em
Keep on rockin' in the free world

Em    D  C  (x4)

VERSE 2:
Em                 D  C
I see a woman in the night
Em                D  C
With a baby in her hand
Em               D  C
Under an old street light
Em          D  C
Near a garbage can
Em
Now she puts the kid away
D             C
And she's gone to get a hit
Em
She hates her life
D       C
And what she's done to it
Em
That's one more kid
D           C
That will never go to school
Em
Never get to fall in love
D         C
Never get to be cool

CHORUS

VERSE 3:
Em                       D  C
We got a thousand points of light
Em            D  C
For the homeless man
Em                 D         C             Em    D  C
We got a kinder, gentler, machine gun hand
Em
We got department stores
D      C
And toilet paper
Em                      D     C
Got styrofoam boxes for the ozone layer
Em
Got a man of the people
D         C
Says keep hope alive
Em
Got fuel to burn
D        C
Get roads to drive
