American Girl


D  E7  G  A   (jangle on D)

D                E7 
Well she was an American girl.
G         A 
Raised on promises
D                 E7 
She couldn't help thinking that there was a
G                   A 
little more to life somewhere else
                   D                       
After all it was a great big world
G                      Em        
with lots of places to run to
A 
And if she had to die
tryin' she 
had one little promise
she was gonna keep

CHORUS
G        A 
Oh yeah, all right,
D                Bm                 G 
take it easy baby make it last all night
       A            D    (jangle on D)
She was an American girl

D                 E7 
Well it was kinda cold that night
G                      A 
She stood alone on the balcony
D                        E7 
Yeah, she could hear the cars roll by, out on
G                   A 
four-forty one like waves crashing on the beach
                      D 
And for one desperate moment there
G                    Em 
he crept back in her memory
A 
God it's so painful
when something that's so close
is still.. so.. far.. out of reach.

CHORUS

G G G  G G# A A D 4x 

(jangle)

D  E7  G  A   jam till end

if you transpose the key the A and D over "she was an American Girl" don't change at all... be careful
