VERSE 1:
 G
There's a black man with a black cat living in a black neighborhood.
 G
He's got an interstate running through his front yard,
             F           C         G
You know he thinks he's got it so good
 G
And there's a woman in the kitchen cleaning up the evening's slop,
          F
And he looks at her and says, "Hey darlin'
 C                             G
I can remember when you could stop a clock."

CHORUS:
 G                 C                   G
Oh but ain't that America for you and me.
            C                    G
Ain't that America.  We're something to see baby.
           C                   D
Aint that America. Home of the free,  yeah,
                        C
Little pink houses for you and me, oh yeah, for you and me

            G          C    G                                  C    G

 G
Well there's a young man in a tee-shirt
 G
Listening to a rockin' rollin' station.
 G
He's got greasy hair and a greasy smile he says,
  F              C     G
"Lord this must be my destination."
 G
Cause they told me when I was younger,
 G
"Boy you're gonna be president."
                F                              C
But just like everything else those old crazy dreams
                     G
Just kinda came and went.

CHORUS:
 G                 C                   G
Oh but ain't that America for you and me.
            C                    G
Ain't that America.  We're something to see baby.
           C                   D
Aint that America. Home of the free,  yeah,
                        C
Little pink houses for you and me, oh yeah, for you and me

 G
Well there's people and more people what do they know, Know, know.
                                  F                    C   G
Go to work in some high rise and vacation down at the Gulf
Of Mexico.
 G
And there's winners and there's losers,
 G
But they aint no big deal,
             F                            C
Because the simple man baby pays for the thrills, the bills,
     G
The pills that kill.

CHORUS:
 G                 C                   G
Oh but ain't that America for you and me.
            C                    G
Ain't that America.  We're something to see baby.
           C                   D
Aint that America. Home of the free,  yeah,
                        C
Little pink houses for you and me, oh yeah, for you and me
