East Jesus Nowhere lyrics & chords

INTRO
E5 G5 E5 D5 E5 x8

VERSE 1
D5 A5 E5

Raise your hands to testify

D5 A5 E5 Your confession will be crucified

D5 A5 E5 You're a sacrificial suicide
D5 A5 E5
D5 A5 Like a dog that's been sodomized

E5 G5 E5 D5 E5 Stand up! - all the white boys

E5 G5 E5 D5 E5 Sit down! - all the black girls

E5 G5 E5 D5 E5 Stand up! - you're the soldiers

E5 G5 E5 D5 E5
D5 A5
Sit down! - of the new world
PRE-CHORUS B5 D5 A5 Put your faith in a miracle
B5 D5 A5 And it's non-denominational
B5 D5 A5 Join the choir we will be singing
B5 E5 In the church of wistful thinking

CHORUS E G5* A fire burns today
A5* C5 B5* Of blasphemy and genocide
E G5* The sirens of decay
A5* C5 D5 Will infiltrate the faith fanatics
BRIDGE 1
E5* G5* E5* D5* E5* x2
E5 G5 E5 D5 E5 x2
D5 A5

VERSE 2 Oh bless me Lord for I have sinned
It's been a lifetime since I last confessed
I threw my crutches in "the river
Of a shadow of doubt"
D5 A5 And I'll be dressed in my sunday best
PRE-CHORUS
B5 D5 A5 Say a prayer for the family
B5 D5 A5 Drop a coin for humanity
B5 D5 A5 Ain't this uniform so flattering?
B5 D5 I never asked you a goddamned thing
CHORUS
E G5* A fire burns today
A5* C5 B5* Of blasphemy and genocide
E G5* The sirens of decay
A5* C5 D5 Will infiltrate the faith fanatics
BRIDGE 2
E5* G5* E5* D5* E5* x2
E5 G5 E5 D5 E5 x2

E5
Don't test me

E5
Second guess me

E5
Protest me
E5 E5 E5 D5 A5 You will disappear
PRE-CHORUS
B5 D5 A5 I want to know who's allowed to breed
B5 D5 A5 All the dogs who never learned to read
B5 D5 A5 Missionary politicians
B5 D5 And the cops of a new religion

SOLO
E G5 A5 C5 B5*
E G5 A5 C5 D5

BRIDGE 3
E** x8
CHORUS
E* G A fire burns today
A C B Of blasphemy and genocide
E G The sirens of decay
A C B Will infiltrate the inside

Lyrics by Billie Joe Armstrong
Music by Green Day
THIS SONG IS FROM “21st Century Breakdown” 2009
How to read these chord schemes

1 - chord name, 2 - chord designation, 3 - chord scheme

Chord name

There is the name of a chord before the symbols. If it's "*" added to a name, it means that this chord is played in different positions during the song.

Chord designation

There are 6 symbols in a designation, read it from left to right. The first symbol defines the thickest string (6th string), the second symbol defines 5th string and so on.

"0" means open string

"x" means this string isnt played

"Number" means number of a fret.

Example:

x02220

6th string isnt played
5th string is open
4th string is played on 2nd fret
3rd string is played on 2nd fret
2nd string is played on 2nd fret
1st string is open

Chord scheme

Imagine that you are looking at the fret while playing guitar - the closest string to your eyes is the 6th, the thickest string. There are 6 horizontal lines defines strings, the upper one is the thinnest string (1st string).
And there are 4 lines defined frets - no exact frets numbers defined.
In some schemes there is a thick line on the left - it defines the nut.

  • "0" means open string
  • "x" means this string isnt played
  • Fat dots mean fingers positions

Example:

G5 355xxx
