Verse 1

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

Chorus

[G]Oh yeah,[A] alright, [D]take it easy baby [Bm]make it last all night[G]
She was [A]  an American [D]girl

Verse 2

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

(Chorus)
