The city children, they know how to breed
They've touched some love, but they believe in need
            F                                                   C
I said to myself, I said, "I... I jerk those tears I don't cry."
C
The downtown bigots, they want to be friends
I filled their cup up until they said when
            F                                                   C

  G               F
I feel a fever, a generation
  C                  Em
I am just human, I?m information

You gonna die, die, die, and do that tear jerk
And cry, cry, cry, and do that tear jerk
F                                        C
Why? Why? Why? And do that tear jerk, too
F                   G                        C
I do that tear jerk, I do that tear jerk for you

C
The progress mongers, the southpaws of smoke
Full-formed veneers for us average folks
            F                                                   C
I said to myself, I said, "I... I jerk those tears I don?t cry."
C
And after us, the engines will search
For fashion youth, the signs and wonders in shirts
            F                                                   C
I said to myself I said, "I... I jerk those tears I don't cry."

  G               F
I feel a fever, a generation
  C                  Em
I am just human, I?m information
     F          G
It's true, it's true

          C
You gonna die, die, die, and do that tear jerk
And cry, cry, cry, and do that tear jerk
    F                                 C
And I, I, I, I do that tear jerk, its true
          C
You gonna die, die, die, and do that tear jerk
And cry, cry, cry, and do that tear jerk
F                                        C
Why? Why? Why? And do that tear jerk, too
F                   G                        C
I do that tear jerk, I do that tear jerk for you

(This part is mostly drums, so I like to just do one stab at the beginning of each line 
and maybe do a light tapping on the guitar so that it's not completely a capella. I'll 
provide the chords I do the stabs of.)

C
I stole these rhythms from the man who had them, and uh
F
He wiped his chin down with Uncle Tom's napkin, and uh
C
He said you choose this day whom you will serve, and uh
F
Take bits of grace, not just the things you will deserve, and uh
Am
"Well, Jesus Christ," I said "you're changing your mind.", and uh
C
You're turning water back from that wine
             F (resume playing normally)
It's the day the Lord has made and the year of rabbits, too
                G
I got my calendar mind and it's set on you

          C
I'm gonna die, die, die, and do that tear jerk
Why? Why? Why? And do that tear jerk
    F                                  C
And I, I, I, I do that tear jerk, its true
          C
You gonna die, die, die, and do that tear jerk
Why? Why? Why? And do that tear jerk
    F                                    C
And I, I, I, and do that tear jerk, it's true
F                   G                        C
I do that tear jerk, I do that tear jerk for you
F                   G                        C (let ring)
I do that tear jerk, I do that tear jerk for you
