[Verse 1]
--------
G
There's a black man with a black cat living in a black neighborhood.

He's got an interstate running through his front yard,
            F           C         G
You know he thinks he's got it so good
G
And there's a woman in the kitchen cleaning up the evening's slop,
         F
And he looks at her and says, "Hey darlin'
C                             G
I can remember when you could stop a clock."

-------
[Chorus]
-------
G                 C                   G
Oh but ain't that America for you and me.
           C                    G
Ain't that America.  We're something to see baby.
          C                   D
Aint that America. Home of the free,  yeah,
                       C
Little pink houses for you and me, oh yeah, for you and me

[Verse 2]
--------
G
Well there's a young man in a tee-shirt

listening to a rockin' rollin' station.

He's got greasy hair and a greasy smile he says,
 F              C     G
"Lord this must be my destination."

Cause they told me when I was younger,

"Boy you're gonna be president."
               F                              C
But just like everything else those old crazy dreams
                    G
just kinda came and went.

-------
[Chorus]

G                 C                   G
Oh but ain't that America, for you and me.

Ain't that America.  We're something to see baby.
          C                   D
Aint that America. Home of the free,  yeah,
                       C
Little pink houses for you and me, oh baby, for you and me.

G
Well there's people and more people what do they know, Know, know.
                                 F                    C       G
Go to work in some high rise and vacation down at the Gulf of Mexico.
G
And there's winners and there's losers,

But they aint no big deal,
            F                            C
Because the simple man baby pays for the thrills, the bills,
    G
the pills that kill.
