Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This may not be exactly how the song is performed, but I transcribed it
so it sounds good on one guitar and it's pretty easy to play.  I'm not
sure if the G#m in the chorus is really that chord or if it's another
B chord, but I liked the variety and the sound of the G#m so that's what
I kept.  Hope everyone enjoys.

(INTRO)
E     Emaj7     E*       Emaj7

(VERSE)
E                           Emaj7
Got a one way ticket down a 2 way street
        E*                          Emaj7
Got the wind in my hair and there's dust on my feet
         Amaj7                           E     Emaj7
I'm just trying to make it in America

     E                      Emaj7
Only thing to my name is an old t-shirt
      E*          Emaj7
Faded 1985 from a Stones' concert
        Amaj7                          E     Emaj7
And I'm dying to make it in America

        E                       Emaj7
And I'm singing the words to my favorite song
         E*                  Emaj7
With the rag top down and my glasses on
        Amaj7                               E
And I'm driving straight through America

(CHORUS)
                  E
I wanna taste the sun, cause baby I'm born to run
(E)             A                B
I got a feeling that I'm not the only one

E
I, I wanna show some skin, yeah baby I need the ocean
(E)                   A               G#m
And you can't stop me now I've got my heart in motion
A
I want to make it in America, make it in America

E     Emaj7

(VERSE - same chords as above)
I can see my star sunset and vine
Gonna carve my name in the Hollywood sign
Yeah I gotta, gotta make it in America

See me wearin' a smile, even if I'm broke
I'll be singing the words from a song I wrote
And I called it Make It In America

(CHORUS - same chords as above)
I wanna taste the sun, cause baby I'm born to run
I got a feeling that I'm not the only one

I, I wanna show some skin, baby I need the ocean
And you can't stop me now I've got my heart in motion
I wanna make it in America, make it in America

(BRIDGE)
      F#m
I can feel the sweat dripping down my face
      G#m
I can hear my heart as it starts to race
         A
Yeah sometimes this world's such a lonely place
     B
If I just push on I know that

(CHORUS)
I wanna taste the sun, cause baby I'm born to run
I got a feeling that I'm not the only one

I, I wanna show some skin, baby I need the ocean
And you can't stop me now I've got my heart in motion
I wanna make it in America, make it in America
