Verse 1:
E                     A7
American woman, gonna mess your mind.
E                         A7               E
American woman, she gonna mess your mind.  Mmmm ---
E                     A7               E
American woman, gonna mess your mind. Unhhh!
E                     A7       
American woman, gonna mess your mind.

(ad lib spelling A-M-E-R-I-C-A-N using the the same chord progression.)

Repeat Verse 1.

This is the strum pattern for the rest of the song:
E         G,A  E        A,G  E        G,A  E
///////// //  ///////// //  ///////// //  ///////
(The A & G chords are switched periodicaly.)

Verse 2:
  G  A   E           G    A    E      G  A   E            A   G  E    G,A  E
American woman, stay away from me.  American woman, momma let me be. 
E                              A, G  E                                    G,A 
Don't come a hangin' around my door, I don't wanna see your face no more.
E                              A   G    E                              A  
I got more important things to do, than spend my time growin' old with you.
G   E             G    A  E   A   G    E             G    A  E
Now woman, I said stay away.  American woman, listen what I  sa-----y.
The rest of the verses are very similar to verse 2, with subtle changes.
Enjoy! This song's a little tough, but it gets easy w/practice!
