[Intro]
A

[Verse]
A                        Aaug
You can drive across the whole thing 
        F#m                A
in four days if you really wanted 
G                    F#m
leaving custom thank you notes 
           A               D      
in all the houses you ever haunted 
A                   Aaug
in this whole solar system 
F#m                        G
we've only met one type of life 
A                       Aaug
it's the living kind of life 
Bm                      D
and it's not one I recognize 


[Chorus]
A    G   F#m  A
America, America
A    G   Bm   D
America, America
A    G   F#m  A
America, America
A    G   E    D
America, America


[Verse]
A
I said "excuse me" to the ocean 
          Aaug
because I thought I had got in its way 
   F#m
At first I didn't think it heard me 
    A
but then I saw it wave 
A
You can spend every living moment thinking 
        Aaug
How can I get out alive? 
F#m
But is it really then, can you really call it 
A
Hey man, just shut up and drive 
  A                                    
I thought we'd be on the road all night 
          Aaug
when that ice storm hit in Texas 
    F#m
and when we pulled into the gas station 
       G
It was like a frozen oasis 
A
Oh, sweet mama, 
          Aaug
does that neon sign shine for me? 
           Bm
Is there a street where my name glows 
                D
all through the night? 


[Chorus]
         A                G
And I've never read (America) 
        F#m              A
No I've never been (America) 
       A                G
I just never went (America) 
       Bm               D
I have never seen (America) 
         A                G
And I've never read (America) 
        F#m              A
No I've never been (America) 
       A                G
I just never went (America) 
       E               D
I just wanna see (America) 


[Verse]
       A
All my fantasies are faking orgasms 
             Aaug
They're only in it for the money I made up for them 
           F#m
I trade in ideas, opinion and artistry 
       A
And my face is on every dollar 
        A
This is heaven but heaven is here
        Aaug 
This is heaven but heaven is hard 
             Bm
Because your lover is listening to music you don't know 
           D
And you're tangled up in the headphone wires 
         A
You know our problems, they don't end 
     Aaug
Just because we get boy/girlfriends 
   F#m
Is this your salvation plan?
   G
Is this your salvation plan? 
    A
Oh, there's only one type of love 
         Aaug
It's the loving kind of love 
                Bm
But when you're mad at me it's the end of times 
        D
And I'm mad at you all the other times 


[Chorus]
         A                G
And I've never read (America) 
        F#m              A
No I've never been (America) 
       A                G
I just never went (America) 
       Bm               D
I have never seen (America) 
         A                G
And I've never read (America) 
        F#m              A
No I've never been (America) 
       A                G
I just never went (America) 
       E               D
I just wanna see (America) 



[Bridge]
E
Real life's a mess 
       A
But at least you're not paying rent 
            D
You've been making it, maybe even breaking even 
    Bm           G 
You oughta be content 
E
It doesn't make sense 
       A
You're still sitting on the fence 
         G
When the yard is yours 
           F#m
And it was money well spent 


[Chorus]
         A                G
And I've never read (America) 
        F#m              A
No I've never been (America) 
       A                G
I just never went (America) 
       Bm               D
I have never seen (America) 
A
America (America) 
A
America (America) 
A              
Democracy (America) 
A
Biographies (America) 
A                   G
Civil rights! (America), basically
F#m                  A
Bright lights! (America) Living in the city 
A                  G
Second prize (America) in a beauty pageant 
F#m                A
200 dollars, (America) This is life.
