                          I AM NOT AMERICAN - The Arrogant Worms

Tabbed by Sam Filgate

(If you want to be really picky, you can add an sus4 chord before the last chord 
in each of the verses. See Verse 5 for an example. Only for the completest!)

Intro: A  E   A B A

Verse 1:
E    A    E
I am not American,
         A              E
Though I live in North America
         A       B    E
Which is part of the Americas
             A           B
Which should make me an American

Verse 2: (Same chords as Verse 1)
Geographically Canadians,
Are certainly Americans
As are Venezuelans,
But not Hawaiians

Chorus 1:
        A                        E
They're out in the middle of the Ocean
A             B            E
Just like the U.S. Virgin Islands,
    A                              G#m C#m
Who really shouldn't say they are Americans,
F#      B
Or even virgins

Verse 3:
E       A         E
How did two whole continents,
           A               E
Lose their name to one constituent?
A                      G#m  C#m
Where were we when the U.S. went,
    F#                      B
And took the word American away?

Verse 4: (Same as Verse 3 chords)
But to be fair to them,
Their other name options,
Like U.S.A.ers or United Statesians,
Were pretty bad

Chorus 2: (Same as Chorus 1)
Still I want to be as American,
As the French are European,
Or those in Antarctica are Antarctican
Even if they're just penguins

Verse 5: (Same as Verse 3)
That leaves us Canadians 
As Northern North Americans,
But Alaska's Norther curse them
                              (C#sus) C#
We're surrounded by Americans. Americans!

Verse 6:
       F#               B      F#
I just called those U.S.A.ers Americans
  B                             F#
A name meant for two continents not just them
    B    C#          Bbm Ebm 
For if I said I was American,
G#                                      C#
People would probably think I came from Maine

Chorus 3:
B      C#        F#   
Still I think I have a plan,
B      C#        F#
Let's become Antarctican,
B        C#      Bbm    Ebm
And join up with the penguins
G#            C#          B    C#  F#  B F#
For just like them, we're not American!
