Chord Progressions:

D E G A
D E G A A
D G Em A A A A
G A D Bm G A D

D               E
Well she was an American girl
G         A
Raised on promises
D                E 
She couldnt help thinkin
                 G                   A
That there was 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

G        A
Oh yeah, all right
D
Take it easy, baby
Bm               G
Make it last all night
         A          D
She was an American girl

D                 E
Well it was kinda cold that night
G                      A
She stood alone on her balcony
D                        E
Yeah, she could hear the cars roll by
       G        A 
Out on 441 like waves crashin on the beach
                      D
And for one desperate moment
      G                    Em
There he crept back in her memory
A
God its so painful when something thats so close

Is still so far out of reach

G        A
Oh yeah, all right
D
Take it easy, baby
Bm               G
Make it last all night
         A          D
She was an American girl
