Hi!
This is the new song from Victorious. I really like it!
This is my first one and I tabbed this by ear, so if I've got something wrong, please 
tell me!

In case you don't know, to play Cadd9, just put your fingers on a G but 'jump' them all 
in one string to play the chord.
Or, it's basically a C but move the finger that's on the B string down 2 frets.
You will have to re-arrange your fingers so it is more comfortable.

Thanks!

Standard Tuning
Capo 2

Intro : G Cadd9 x2

Verse 1:
      G                     Cadd9
Got a one-way ticket down a two way street
        G                           Cadd9
Got the wind in my hair and there's dust on my feet
         Em7
I'm just trying
   C
To make it in America

G

Verse 2:
     (G)                    Cadd9
Only thing to my name is an old t-shirt
      G                     Cadd9
Faded nine-teen eighty-five from a Stones concert
        Em7
And I'm dying
   C
To make it in America

G

Pre-Chorus: (? doesn't really sound like one)
        G                       Cadd9
And I'm singing the words to my favourite song
         G                   Cadd9
With the rag-top down and my glasses on
        Em7
and I'm driving
C
Straight through America

D

Chorus:
(no D)            G
I wanna taste the sun
                         C
'Cause baby, I'm born to run
                   Em              D
I've gotta feeling that I'm not the only one
G                    C
I, I wanna show some skin
                        Em7
'Cause baby, I need the ocean
                   Am7            G
You can't stop me now I've got my heart in motion
C
I, wanna make it in america
D (ring out)
make it in america

~Repeat intro only once~

Repeat verse chords to these lyrics

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 wearing 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~

Middle 8:
      Em7                     C
I can feel the sweat dripping down my face
      Em7                 C
I can hear my heart as it starts to race
         Am7                        C
Yeah some-times this world's such a lonely place
          D
If I just push on I know that

~Chorus~
