(intro)
Ab     Gb, Gb  Db    Ab


(verse)
Ab                     Gb
He puts her boots and bandanna on
   Db                   Ab
He has a hankering for Rolling Stones
Ab                       Gb 
He likes her vegetables home grown
  Db
A lot like the boy waiting out in the truck

(instrumental)
Ab         Bbm      Db Cm Bb Ab


(verse)
Ab                      Gb
He'll take a hill like Roosevelt
Db                        Ab
Holds up her pants with a Bible belt
Ab                       Gb
He cracks 'em up like a liberty bell
  Db
A whole lot of tender and a little bit tough


(chorus)
Ab        Bbm
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Bb                     Db Cm Bb Ab

He's American beautiful


(instrumental)
Ab     Gb,  Gb  Db    Ab


(verse)
Ab                        Gb
Well, he is a mutt with a pedigree
Db                  Ab
Sinatra junkie in a pair of jeans
Ab                      Gb
He pays his dues in the Land of the Free
       Db
Says, "Why walk baby, we were born to run"



(chorus)
Ab        Bbm
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Bb                     Db Cm Bb Ab

Ab     Bbm             Db Cm Bb Ab, Ab Bb Db

Fm                   Db
I saw that girl in a mirror once
       Ab
With a boy like that in a cloud of dust
Fm                  Eb
I think they look a lot like us
       Db
'Cause we are, we are, we are

Ab(damp)  Db
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Db                     Db Cm Bb Ab
We are a little unusual

We are American beautiful
