As performed during the Toronto International Film Festival on 9/11/2007.

[ G ]Here's to the judges of [ Cadd9 ]John Roberts[ G ]
Who wear the robe of honor in a [ Cadd9 ]phony legal [ D ] form
And [ G ] justices are stranger when the [ Cadd9 ]partisans re[ D ]port
When the [ G ] court elected a president it was the [ Cadd9 ] beginning of this [ D ] war

[ G ]Here's to the [ Em ] land you [ C ] tore out the [ G ]heart of
[ G ]John Roberts [ Em ]find yourself ano [ C ]ther country [ D ]to be [ G ]part of

[ G ]Here's to the government of [ Cadd9 ]Dick Cheney[ G ]
With criminals posing as [ Cadd9 ]advisors to the [ D ]crown
And they[ G ] hope that no one sees the sites or that [ Cadd9 ]no one hears the [ D ]sounds
Cause the [ G ]speeches of our president are the [ Cadd9 ]remains of a [ D ]clown

[ G ]Here's to the [ Em ] land you [ C ] tore out the [ G ]heart of
[ G ]Dick Cheney [ Em ]find yourself ano[ C ]ther country [ D ]to be [ G ]part of

Here's to the churches of [ Cadd9 ]Jerry Falwell[ G ]
Oh the cross once made of silver now is [ Cadd9 ]turned to [ D ]rust
And the [ G ] sunday morning services preach in [ Cadd9 ]fear of men in [ D ]love
And [ G ]God only knows in [ Cadd9 ]heaven they must[ D ]trust

[ G ]Here's to the [ Em ] land you [ C ] tore out the [ G ]heart of
[ G ]Jerry Falwell [ Em ] find yourself ano[ C ]ther country [ D ]to be [ G ]part of

Here's to the laws of [ Cadd9 ]Alberto Gonzalez[ G ]
Congress will pass an act in the [ Cadd9 ]panic of the [ D ]day
And the [ G ] Constitution's drowning in an [ Cadd9 ]ocean of [ D ]decay
And [ G ]freedom of speech is dangerous i've [ Cadd9 ]even heard them [ D ]say

[ G ]Here's to the [ Em ] land you [ C ] tore out the [ G ]heart of
[ G ]Gonzalez [ Em ] find yourself ano[ C ]ther country [ D ]to be [ G ]part of

Here's to the businessmen of [ Cadd9 ]George W [ G ]
Who'll want to change the focus from Halli[ Cadd9 ]burton to [ D ]Enron
And their[ G ]  profits like blood money spilled out [ Cadd9 ]on the white house [ D ]lawn
To [ G ]keep their hold on power they're using [ Cadd9 ]terror as a [ D ]con
While the [ G ]bombs they fall on children dont know [ Cadd9 ]which side...dont care 
side that they're [ D ]on

[ G ]Here's to the [ Em ] land you [ C ] tore out the [ G ]heart of
[ G ]George W [ Em ]find yourself ano[ C ]ther country [ D ]to be [ G ]part of

[ G ]Here's to the [ Em ] land you [ C ] tore out the [ G ]heart of
[ G ]George W [ Em ]find yourself ano[ C ]ther country [ D ]to be [ G ]part of

Notes:

Eddie does a little Dsus4 - D - Dsus2 run while strumming the D that ends each verse

After strumming the last G in the first line of the chorus (...heart of) Eddie pulls off 
E and A strings for one strum and then continues strumming G like so:

e|--3--3------3--|
B|--3--3------3--|
G|---------------|
D|---------------|
A|--2--0------2--|
E|--3--0------3--|

After strumming the last G in the last line of the chorus (...to be part of) Eddie does 
little 3-2-0 run on the A string and then continues strumming G like so:

e|--3---------3--|
B|--3---------3--|
G|---------------|
D|---------------|
A|--2--3-2-0--2--|
E|--3---------3--|
