This was on Taylors demo when she was 12 or 13. A really pretty song and there 
weren't any other tabs of it so... here.

Capo on 2nd fret

           G
American boy
            D
Living life as it goes.
              Am       C
Sittin on the fencepost
             G
Livin in the light.

         G
American boy
             D
Livin in the real world.
              Am          C
Tryin just to get the girl
            G
Tryin to survive.

    G                         D
The simple things in life are always new
Am                      C
Growing up on Sand Hill Avenue.
    G                          D
And mama makes her cookies and daddy’s just
    Am                       C
The greatest living hero that ever was.
G                         D            Am
Nothing in this world can ever once destroy
    C                   G
The hope of an American boy.

             D
Livin off of bar tips
            Am         C
Tryin for relationships.
           G
Lookin for love.

            G
Suddenly he finds
            D
An American beauty
            Am   C
Suddenly it hits:
                 G
She’s sent from above.

G D Am C

    G                         D
The simple things in life are always new

Am                      C
Growing up on Sand Hill Avenue.
    G                          C
And mama makes her cookies and daddy’s just
    Am                       C
The greatest living hero that ever was.
G                         D            Am
Nothing in this world can ever once destroy
    C                    G
The dream of an American boy.


G G G G G

         G
American boy
              D
Raising little baby,
                      Am   C
Keeps hearing “Daddy, maybe
             G
I’ll be like you.”


         G
Suddenly alive,
                  D
Seems just like a new toy.
               Am  C
There’s strong love
         G 
American boy.


    G                         D
The simple things in life are always new
Am                       C
Growing up on Grand View Avenue.
    G                          D
And mama makes her cookies and daddy’s just
    Am                        C
The greatest living hero that ever was.
G                          D            Am  C
Nothing in this world will ever once destroy
    G                          D            Am   
No, nothing in this world will ever once destroy
    C                   G   G G G G
The hope of an American boy.
