It's America (Love It Or Leave It)
written by Jimmie Helms
11/1/05


CAPO II


INTRO: G  C

      D                  G
(It's America love it or leave it)

         G 
Well I'm gettin' mighty tired of seein' hippies runnin' wild
                                                 C
And burnin' down the schools and steppin' on the flag

Things are gettin' out of hand when you read about man
                                                             D
Who'll burn his draft car then hang around the pool room and brag
C                           G
Some folks think it's okay, but I wasn't raised that way
                   D                       G-C-G
And I won't be satisfied 'til I've had my say


CHORUS:
        C             
It's America, you got no right to deceive it
         G
It's the best there is, you'd better believe it
         C
Good men gave their lives, so we could live to see it
     D                    G
It's America, love it or leave it


INTRO

           G
Things are goin' mighty wrong when respect for law is gone
                                C
And it seems everybody hates a uniform
                         
It's kinda hard to understand when you read about a man
                                                        D
That's talkin' 'bout love and knockin' the place he was born
C                             G
If things don't go their way, they could always move away
                 D             G-C-G
That's what democracy means anyway


CHORUS

     D                     G      C  G
It's America, love it or leave it
