VERSE 1:
G D C D
Was it just a dream, were you so confused
G D C
Was it just a giant leap of logic
G D C D
Was it the time of year, that makes a state of fear
G Dm F
Methods, were their motives for the action

CHORUS:
Am
And did I hear you say
C F Am
My country right or wrong
G D F
My Country oh so strong
G
My country right or wrong

Do INTRO RIFF once:

VERSE 2
Did you save your face

CHORUS (TWICE):
Did I hear you say
My country right or wrong
My country oh so strong
My country going wrong
My country right or wrong
