Great song.  I think its on Mermaid Avenue Vol. II with Wilco and Billy Bragg.  Enjoy!

Em              Bm
I done spent my last three cents
Am                        Em
Mailing my letter to the president
Em                              Bm                          
I didn't make a show, I didn't make a dent
Am                               Em
So I'm swinging over to this independent gent
G        D
Stetson Kennedy
G           D
Writing his name in
Em  D  C  D  X2

Em                  Bm
I can't win out to save my soul
        Am                       Em
Long as Smathers-Dupont's got me in the hole
Em                        Bm
Them war profit boys are squawking and balking
Am                             Em
That's what's got me out here walking and talking
G            D          G        D    
Knocking on doors and windows
G            D         G          D
Wake up and run down election morning
Em          D        C        D
And scribble in Stetson Kennedy

Em                                       Bm
I ain't the world's best writer nor the world's best speller
            Am                            Em
But when I believe in something I'm the loudest yeller
Em                               Bm
If we fix it so's you can't make money on war
Am                           Em
We'll all forget what we're killing folks for
G               D          G         D
We'll find us a peace job equal and free
G              D          G      D
Dump Smathers-Dupont in a salty sea
Em                  D       C        D    Em  D  C  D
Well, this makes Stetson Kennedy the man for me
