Here is the updated version (again)... Some chords were omitted before on "Waterboy" I believe.

--->Mental Jewelry1991From the mouth of a baby
Will come the world saving words
That will save us all
And from the lungs of a child
Will come the everlasting breath of God

Increasing peace and honesty
And not carrying on despite of me
Don't you know, this ain't about no race, no creed
No race, no creed

And it's as simple as that you see

And if I don't know who to love I love them all
And if I don't know who to trust I trust them all
And if I don't know who to kill no suicide
I'm already dead

  Intro (4x)     Under 1st verse (4x)

You say "hold on to the reigns"
I say "let them go tonight"
My brain waves
Confused between what is and ain't
She cries "groundless and free"

Bbm          Ebm   
Tired of the water
Bbm          Ebm   
Tired of the wine
Bbm          Ebm   
Tired of the future
Bbm          Ebm   
Tired of time
Bbm          Ebm   
Tired of the madness
Bbm          Ebm   
Tired of the steel
Bbm          Ebm   
Tired of the violence
Bbm       Ebm   
Tired of me

Bm    Em  
Used steel
Bm            Em
Used steel am I
         Bm         Em
What was pliable in love
       Bm              Em
Is now hard and crystalized
    Bm           Em
The intellect is fine
    Bm                   Em
For counting money and recording times
     Bm    Em   Bm             F#
That she cried "groundless and free"

Tired of the water...

  Bridge (4x)

       Bm       F#
I'm so tired of time
       F#           Bm 
I'm so tired of the wine  (2x)

G
Hope is a letter that never arrives
                 F#                  Bm
Delivered by the postman of my fear

D|-14---7--|
A|-14---7--|
E|-0----0--|  (repeat throughout verses)

I know that I should think about giving
And think about helping out and think about
Think about living
But I can't seem to rescue myself  (2x)

              C#m
What about my bank account?
       A    B      E
And my holy desert shield
              G#              A
That keeps me dry under the arms
B                                E
Flags and mental jewelry's all I know
                 G#               F#
And they keep me happy and warm inside


So I said unto this man who are you 
And where do you come from
And he proceeded to tell me many things
But I said nothing at all
For the flower in the corner by the room
In the window and the sun
Said it all

But what about...

              A  (arpeggiate chords here)
At least they said they would
          G#
Said they could
               A
Mama said they would
      G#     A
Do me good

I know that I should...


Waterboy
--------

C#m  A  B

C#m                    A         
What do you say to the child
      C#m              A
Whose god is in the TV
    C#m                    A
And what do you say to the man
    C#m                 A
Who blames the world on TV
C#m                  A      C#m     A
They don't even know how to sing my song
    C#m             A           C#m    A
But they won't even try it with me
F#m			   G#
Who is standing over playing like the teacher
F#m
Harnessing the learned
    G#
Who try but can't leave her
  F#m
I want to beg the liars 
   G#
To lay down their sirens
     F#m
That play like the angels
   G#
To my deep desire
C#m
Free my son
F#m
Let him walk right through the rain
C#m
Free my son
F#m
Make him waterboy
C#m
Free my son
F#m
There he stands down on the shore
A	  B	  
Free my son

What do you say to the man
Who treats her like a mother
And what do you say to the man
Who treats him like a father

Come and see my heart
Come inside and learn
Come and see my soul, it's like yours
I say it's just like yours
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/l/live/mental_jewelry_album_crd.html ]
Who is making over
Idolizing princes
Banishing the dreamers
With barbed wire fences
And telling all the children who run to her feet
That they have no vision and love's all diseased

Free my son


Take My Anthem

War in me
War overseas
There ain't no difference between

People honor you so high
              E
You've got to defend the stage at your feet-- No!

Am C  Am C  Am   C         Dm
Take, take, take my anthem today
        Am
Take it away

Hands on me
Hands overseas
There ain't no difference between
Heart in me
Heart overseas
There ain't no difference between


You Are The World
-----------------
If you've ever known love
If you've ever known peace
If you've ever known joy
Make sure that you are on time

A|---4---4---4---4---4-----|---4---4---4---4---4-----|
E|-2-----------------------|-2-----------------------|
   repeat                    last time

If you've ever known war
If you've ever known pain
If you've ever said no
Make sure that you are on time
You are on time
You are on time
We are on time

    F#  E   A   F#    
For you are the world  (4x)

If you've ever known love
If you've ever known peace
If you've ever known joy
Make sure that you are on time

If you've ever known war
If you've ever known pain
If you've ever said no
Make sure that you are on time

A
Fighting, mating, warring
                 F#
You are all this now
A
Be aware, not scared
Look at me now
Silence

E|-------------------------------------|

He said, he said, he said
There was nothing to fear boy
He said, he said, he said
Worthless are your tears boy

Just realize your senses
And realize your earth
Just realize your essence first

Am         G      Am
I'll never be the same again
Am        G           Am
I want to walk in the sun
Am    G        Am
I am alive and well again
F
No more bitterweet
        G
No more good pain

No more
   Am             C         D     C
So many of us stand in the middle
        Am               C
Looking back to the worst 
        D                  C
Looking forward to the fall
       Am             C          D      C
Making weapons of peace for the defense
       Am                 C            D       C
Of the bloodstains on our peaceful sidewalks

You say the buildings are too tall
They're going to fry your brother
Well I say you'd better walk away
And find your mother

        F
No more bitterweet
No more good pain

If I can't sing this song 
And tell you all about it
Then I'll just pack it up right now and walk away
Don't even doubt it

So when our sherry glass is full
And the day is way too young
You'd better sip today before it's gone

No more bitterweet
No more good pain

        Am
No more good pain
        G
No more good pain 
        D
No more good pain good pain


Mother Earth Is a Vicious Crowd
-------------------------------
]: F#m  E/F#m :[
Pollution, Cain, and misery
E
Oceans of golden mystery
]: F#m  E/F#m :[
Armies boisterous and armies loud
E
Portraits of a vicious crowd

D           A          E
Talk to me, talk to me now
D              A          E
Hey man you're all that I have

Me, Myself, Myself and I
Were born to work and born to die
I have chosen my anthems of these I am proud
Portraits of a divided crowd

Talk to me now...

Could you leave it behind...
               D  A  E
Leave it all behind...

10,000 Years (Peace is Now)
---------------------------
    A                C
The world is burning down
          D         A               C   D
Can't you smell the smoke in the air
A                  C         D            A         C  D
War, disease and famine this demon she is everywhere

Poets and preachers and politicians
They've all had their say
And we got 10,000 years devoted
To nothing but tomorrow and yesterday

              F
If all of the ignorance in the world
                A  
Passed a second ago
C    D         A
What would you say?
C         D     A
Who would you obey?
C
I am here to say that
         A    C  D
Peace is now

Mr. President I hereby pardon you for your crimes
For they are just as much mine
Selfishness and seperation have led me to believe
That the world is not my problem
The world is not my problem
I am the world
And you are the world
