I Am a Patriot


by Little Steven
I:	And the river opens for the righteous, someday

G - - - / C - - - /  x2  /  x2  /  x2  //

I was walking with my brother
And he wondered what's on my mind
I said what I believe in my soul
Ain't what I see with my eyes
And we can't turn our backs this time

G - - - / C - - - /  x2  /  x2  /  x2  / D - - - / C - - - /
G - - - / C - - - /  x2  / Em - - - / C - - - / D - - - / C - - - //

 C:	I am a patriot, and I love my country
Because my country is all I know
I want to be with my family, the people who understand me
I've got nowhere else to go

G - - - / C - - - /  x2  /  x2  /  x2  / D - - - / C - - - /
G - - - / C - - - /  x2  / Em - - - / C - - - / D - - - / C - - - //

 R:	And the river opens for the righteous
And the river opens for the righteous
And the river opens for the righteous... someday

G - - - /    /  x2  /  x2  /  x2  //

And I was talking with my sister
She looked so fine
I said, "Baby, what's on your mind?"
She said, "I want to run like the lion
Released from the cages
Released from the rages
Burning in my heart tonight"

 B:	And I ain't no communist
And I ain't no capitalist
And I ain't no socialist
And I ain't no imperialist
And I ain't' no democrat
And I ain't no republican
I only know one party
And it is freedom
I am, I am, I am...

Em - - - / C - - - /  x2  /  x4  /  x4  /  x4  / G - - - / C - - - / D - - - /    //

 C:	I am a patriot, and I love my country
Because my country is all I know

 R:	And the river opens for the righteous
And the river opens for the righteous
And the river opens for the righteous... someday
