Intro : G, C ( 4 times)

There's a black man with a black cat living in a black neighborhood.

He's got an interstate running through his  front yard.
            F           C         G
You know he thinks he's got it so good
And there's a woman in the kitchen cleaning up the evening slop.
And he looks at her and says, "Hey darlin'
C                             G
I can remember when you could stop a clock"
[ Tab from: ]
G                 C                   G
Oh but ain't that America for you and me
           C                    G
Ain't that America something to see baby
          C                   D
Aint that America home of the free
Little pink houses for you and me   ( Enter Drums )
( G,C,G,C 2 times)
Well there's a young man in a tee-shirt

listening to a rockin' rollin' station

He's got greasy hair and a greasy smile he says,
 F              C     G
"Lord this must be my destination"

Cause they told me when I was younger,

"Boy you're gonna be president"
               F                              C
But just like everything else those old crazy dreams
just kinda came and went

   ( OH BABY FOR YOU AND ME )  ( G, C, G, C, G, C,
                               ( F, C, G, F, C, G, F, C, G, F, C, G)
Well there's people and more people what do they know
                                 F                    C       G
Go to work in some high rise and vacation down at the Gulf of Mexico
And there's winners and there's losers

But they aint no big deal
            F                            C
Because the simple man baby pays for the thrills, the bills,
the pills that kill

Chorus  ( Repeat Twice)

( G, C  - 4 times )     ooooh  yeah..... oooooh yeah.....
