Pink Houses           John Cougar Mellencamp

CAPO 5th fret (As you can see when Mellencamp performs this song acoustically and how he 
played it at Obama’s first inaugural)

Intro : D (Mute E1 with thumb), G ( 4 times)
There's a black man with a black cat,
 living in a black neighborhood.
He's got an interstate running through his  front yard.
            G           A         D
You know he thinks he's got it so good
And there's a woman in the kitchen cleaning up the evening slop.
And he looks at her and says, "Hey darlin'
A                             D
I can remember when you could stop a clock"

   D                G                  D
Oh but ain't that America for you and me
             G                          D
Ain't that America something to see baby
           G                    A
Ain’t that America home of the free
    G                          D
Little pink houses for you and me

Well there's a young man in a tee-shirt
listening to a rock 'N' roll station
He's got greasy hair and a greasy smile he says,
"Lord this must be my destination"

Cause they told me when I was younger,
"Boy you're gonna be president"
But just like everything else those old crazy dreams
just kinda came and went


Well there's people and more people what do they know
Go to work in some high rise and
vacation down at the Gulf of Mexico (Ooh yeah)
And there's winners and there's losers
But they ain’t no big deal
Because the simple man baby pays for the thrills, the bills,
the pills that kill
Chorus  ( Repeat Twice)
( D, G  - 4 times )     ooooh  yeah..... oooooh yeah.....
