n.c.=no chord

Intro:  E, E6

(n.c.) E  (n.c.)         E     (n.c.)
Well a US soldier boy on leave in West Berlin
   E     (n.c.)                   E        (n.c.)
No music there that rocks, just a thousand violins
(n.c.)                A7              E
He wants to hear some American Music, American Music.
E            B7              A7             E
They want to hear that sound right from the USA
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/blasters/american_music_crd.html ]
Well it can be sweet and lovely, it can be hard and mean
But one thing's for sure: it's always on the beam
They want to hear some American Music, American Music
They want to hear that sound right from the USA

It's a howl from the desert, the screams from the slums
The Mississippi rollin' to the beat of the drums
Because they're playing American Music, American Music
They want to hear that sound right from the USA

(bridge)
E          A7                       E
We got the Louisiana boogie and the Delta Blues
A7                E
Country swing and rockabilly, too
E      A7                        E
We got jazz, country-western and Chicago blues
E        B7
It's the greatest music that you ever knew
A7        E               A7        E             A7      E   
Well it's American Music,    it's   American Music   It's American Music   
E        B7             A7             E   
It's the greatest sound right from the USA

Well a US soldier boy has to stop right in his tracks
When he hears that crazy beat, he turns and doubles back
Because they're playing American Music, American Music
The whole world digs that sound from the USA
