"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


[GUITAR BRIDGE]
