Song: HEY-HEY, USA: HOW MANY CHILDREN DID YOU KILL TODAY?
Artist: GINGER TOM

The song is by the Aussie band GINGER TOM which came out here on the 
PEACE NOT WAR compilation CD as ‘HEY HEY, USA’. 

The singer uses standard tuning on his Strat. The lead guitarist plays 
a Gibson 335 with a brass slide, and has a dropped D tuning.

Slide Guitar Intros
The slide guitar has a dropped-D tuning. I’ve used the = symbol to 
indicate a slide emphasis. This is the first intro:

Lyrics from the Ginger Tom official web site:

I can see hypocrisy in defending democracy
By denying liberty at home and away
I can’t say I’d rather stay at Woomera or Camp X-Ray
Telling all the children their religion’s astray

You wanna see the Vietnamese 
At the Museum of American Atrocities, and ask 
Hey, Hey, USA: how many children did you kill today?

I can’t see the merit in our status as a deputy sheriff
Taking marching orders from the USA
Can’t you see there’s something wrong
To repress dissent with cluster bombs
For a Christian crusade in a modern age

You oughta see all the refugees 
From the Museum of American Atrocities, and ask 
Hey, Hey, USA: how many children did you kill today?

I’d rather see some common sense in arguments in parliaments
Rather than the armaments of racist wars
