The Henningsens,  "American Beautiful"



I figured out most of the cords by ear; could use some tweaking by a more seasoned 
player and would definitely be appreciated!
It's a great song, I hope you all enjoy playing it!

  Standard tuning, Capo on 1st fret
  you can figure the strum pattern while playing with the song; C cord can be played 
with/without the middle finger. Sounds like
  they play without the middle note during verses, then hold it down approaching the 
chorus and at end of chorus. Play around
  with it and decide which is easier for you or what sounds best.


(intro)
G       F       C       G


(verse)
G                     F
She puts her boots and bandanna on
   C                   G
She has a hankering for Rolling Stones
G                       F
She likes her vegetables home grown
  C
A lot like the boy waiting out in the truck

(instrumental)
G      Am      C     G


(verse)
G                      F
She'll take a hill like Roosevelt
C                        G
Holds up her pants with a Bible belt
G                       F
She cracks 'em up like a liberty bell
  C
A whole lot of tender and a little bit tough


(chorus)
 G   Am   C
Ooh, ooh, ooh
 C                   G
She's a little unusual
 G   Am   C
Ooh, ooh, ooh
C              G
She's American beautiful


(instrumental)
G       F       C       G


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



(chorus)
G    Am   C
Ooh, ooh, ooh
C                   G
He's a little unusual
G    Am   C
Ooh, ooh, ooh
C      G
He's American beautiful


G     Am    C        G
  Yeah,   yeah, yeah

Em                   C
I saw that girl in a mirror once
       G
With a boy like that in a cloud of dust
Em                  C
I think they look a lot like us
       C                C(octave up)
'Cause we are, we are, we are

G   Am  C
Ooh, ooh, ooh
C                   G
We are a little unusual
G       Am      C
Ooh, ooh, ooh
      G
We are American beautiful


     G    Am     C
Yeah, ooh, ooh, ooh
         G
We are a little unusual
G    Am   C
Ooh, ooh, ooh
       C          C                      G      F       C       G
We are American, American, American beautiful
