First tab, so if things are a little off I apologize in advance. Sounds pretty close to the song
in my opinion though. If there's anything that you think needs to be changed please email me at

"American Kids"
Kenny Chesney


Intro:

Em , G , C , D       X2


[VERSE 1]
  
Em           G           C         D      Em          G           C           D  
Double wide, quick stop, midnight, T-top, Jack in her Cherry Coke town

Em        G               C           D           Em            G             C        D                          
Momma and daddy put their roots right here 'cause this is where the car broke down

Em           G          C          D         Em         G       C           D
Yellow dawn, school bus kickin' up red dust, picking us up by a barbed wire fence

Em-G       C-D     Em-G       C      D 
MTV on the RCA, no A/C in the Vents



[CHORUS]

         G             D               Em            C
We were Jesus save me, blue jean baby, born in the USA

G                        D                      Em           C
Trailer park truck stop, faded little map dots, New York to LA

        G                 D                   Em                  C
We were teenage dreamin', front seat leanin', baby come give me a kiss

G                          D                    Em               C
Put me on the cover of the Rollin' Stone uptown down on American kids

Em            C
Growin' up in little pink houses

Em            C
Makin' out on living room couches

Em                    C
Blowin' that smoke on Saturday night

Em                           G                      
A little messed up but we're all alright



[VERSE 2]

Em             G            C             D           Em                G             C          D
Baptist church parking lot, trying not to get caught, take her home and give her your jacket

Em           G               C               D           Em           G      C           D
Making it to second base but sayin' you went all the way Monday afternoon at practice

Em       G     C  D      Em    G       C     D
Sister's got a boyfriend daddy doesn't like

         Em          G     C            D          Em       G      C         D
Now he's sitting out back, 30-30 in his lap in the blue bug zapper light


[CHORUS]

         G             D               Em            C
We were Jesus save me, blue jean baby, born in the USA

G                        D                      Em           C
Trailer park truck stop, faded little map dots, New York to LA

        G                 D                   Em                  C
We were teenage dreamin', front seat leanin', baby come give me a kiss

G                          D                    Em               C
Put me on the cover of the Rollin' Stone uptown down on American kids

Em            C
Growin' up in little pink houses

Em            C
Makin' out on living room couches

Em                    C
Blowin' that smoke on Saturday night

Em                           G                      
A little messed up but we're all alright
