Intro: Strum using pattern below as a guide 
         for notes that should "stick out"- 
         she usually palm mutes the verses a bit

Verse 1: 
             Dm9 
You see the ghosts of the buffalo 
Moving both fierce and slow
Like glittering prophecies 
                       D
On the edge of the ho_rizon
             Dm9
As you drive shimmering (glittering) highways 
And beaten-up bi-ways
That straddle and girdle 
                         D
Our great and many-faced   nation
             Dm9
You see the lambs in the ghettos 
Who worship their Gepettos
Believing in, though never seeing, 
                        D
The strings they think bind them
       Dm9
So we write to our congressmen 
With bleeding pens of the sorrow within
       Dm9
And in return, they just send 
                          D
Tickets to the latest Tom Hanks (Cruise) show

Chorus:

         Fmaj7         C/E  C/F   D 
	Welcome to the new  wild west
  Fmaj7      C/E  C/F         D
	Each man      for him - self
  Fmaj7              C/E  
	A nation of civilized steeples
             C          Cmaj9
	And lo- - ne-ly people
         Fmaj7         C/E  C/F   D
	Welcome to the new  wild west

Verse 2: 

          Dm9
There are so many factions and cue-card reactions
It's hard to keep clear the possibilities here
'Cause there's 
              D
No force to unite them
Dm9
Privilege has ruled for thousands of years.
Wars have been fought with bibles and tears.
Yet liberation can't deny the temptation 
                       D
And soon becomes the oppressor.
Dm9
Show me a leader who's fit to lead
Who don't sow his seed 
In anything wounded enough to breed
Because after all, what fun is power if you can't 
            D
Act like a rock star?

Chorus:

         Fmaj7         C/E  C/F   D 
	Welcome to the new  wild west
  Fmaj7      C/E  C/F        D
	Each man     for him - self
  Fmaj7              C/E  
	A nation of civilized steeples
             C          Cmaj9
	And lo- - ne-ly people
         Fmaj7         C/E  
	Welcome to the new...
Bridge:

	Fmaj7          C/E         C        Cmaj9      
	Wi--------Ah-ah-i----ah-ah-i--ah-ah-i-i-ld
	Fmaj7          C/E         C        Cmaj9      
	Wi--------Ah-ah-i----ah-ah-i--ah-ah-i-i-ld

Verse 3:	
       Dm9
As for me, I've been cruel, I've been petty
Oh, and unkind, but I know my own mind
And since it seems clear there's no one leading us here
The only thing left, it appears 
Is to task ourselves to be better each time, 
              D
Than those before us
            Dm9
We'll be an army of thieves, of self-freed slaves, 
Of mild-mannered maids
We'll fight with whispers and blades
                            D
So get ready, a new day is daw-------ning

Chorus:

         Fmaj7         C/E  C/F   D 
	Welcome to the new  wild west
  Fmaj7      C/E  C/F        D
	Each man     for him - self
  Fmaj7              C/E  
	A nation of civilized steeples
             C          Cmaj9
	And lo- - ne-ly people
         Fmaj7         C/E  C/F   D
	Welcome to the new  wild west
 	Fmaj7          C/E  C/F   D
	Welcome to the new  wild west
