[Laramie's Songs and Lyrics]


        [Bridge:]
        Em                     [ABF#] [ABG]
        I want to dream again, for the future
        Em                     [ABF#]           or: A7 G
        I want to dream, not fear for the past
        Em                     Dsus2/E
        I don't want to live in a world of fear, greed and hate
        C
        when the time of hope, peace and love
        B7
        has come at last

    [Chorus:]
    G          F
    I want my country back
    C7                   Bb
    no war on the poor no war in Iraq
    I want my country back
    no nuclear strike; pre-emptive attack
    I want my country back
    I want my country back
    I want my country back
    from a stolen election; and a stab in the back

        [Bridge:]
        I want to dream again, for the future
        I want to dream, not fear for the past
        I don't want to live in a world of fear, greed and hate
        when the time of hope, peace and love
        has come at last

    I want my country back
    The Bill of Rights is under attack!
    I want my country back
    no police state, no PATRIOT Act
    I want my country back
    I want my country back
    I want my country back
    If you try to get a green card they're gonna put you in a sack!

        [Bridge:]
        I want to dream again, for the future
        When I sing about love not yet another anti-war song
        we don't have to live in a world of fear, greed and hate
        'cause the Doctor is in, we're gonna to take it to the streets
        'til its blue states
        runnin' from coast to coast

    I want my country back
    I Can't afford healthcare for my heart attack
    I want my country back
    we need healthcare and schools like they wanna give Iraq
    I want my country back
    I want my country back
    I want my job back
    I tried to pick up a hammer but they gave me the Axe!
    I tried to pick up a hammer but they gave me the Axe!
    I want my country back
      no war on the poor no war in Iraq
      no nuclear strike; pre-emptive attack
      no police state, no PATRIOT Act
      no stolen election no stab in the back
      I want my country back
      Now I'm not down with the political machine
      but I'm proud to be a democrat with Howard Dean
    I want my country back
    I want my country back
    I'm sick and tired of being Bush-Wacked!
