Christmas in America
GGGG
GADA D It's another Christmas in America
GADA and old Saint Nick is packing the heat
GA DAG You better take care, keep your hands in the air
AGD when Santa comes rolling down your street
DDDD
DEmGA This song is for Jesse, for Dylan and for Grace
DEmGA and especially for Noah, who was shot in the face
DEmGA when the parents saw the bodies, they lost all control
DEmAD cause a Bushmaster slug makes a two inch hole

DEmGA In the nurse's office, Miss Sally heard a sound
DEmGA Shooter! Stay put! She dropped to the ground
DEmGA Miss Lauren hid her first grade in a bathroom down the hall
DEmAD The shooter found them, he killed them all.

CHORUS
DEmGA If a bad guy can be stopped by a good guy with a gun
DEmGA Well when it comes to good guys, Santa is number one
DEmGA he travels alone, hauls a fortune on his sleigh
DEmAD He's not looking for trouble, just stay out of his way

DEmGA He follows the news, knows what it's all about
DEmGA the hatred, bigots, crazy nuts, and that's just in the South
DEmGA When Santa visits America, you know he's coming strapped
DEmAD whoever crosses him will be sorry they attacked

CHORUS

DEmGA The 20 kids at Sandy Hook won't see Christmas again
DEmGA So many die each day, tell me when will it end
DEmGA America is in trouble, and can't tell right from wrong
DEmAD Congress fears the NRA, all I have is this silly song

CHORUS
