Pink Houses John Cougar Mellencamp CAPO 5th fret (As you can see when Mellencamp performs this song acoustically and how he played it at Obamaís first inaugural) Intro : D (Mute E1 with thumb), G ( 4 times) D There's a black man with a black cat, living in a black neighborhood. He's got an interstate running through his front yard. G A D You know he thinks he's got it so good D And there's a woman in the kitchen cleaning up the evening slop. G And he looks at her and says, "Hey darlin' A D I can remember when you could stop a clock" Chorus D G D Oh but ain't that America for you and me G D Ain't that America something to see baby G A Ainít that America home of the free G D Little pink houses for you and me Well there's a young man in a tee-shirt listening to a rock 'N' roll station He's got greasy hair and a greasy smile he says, "Lord this must be my destination" Cause they told me when I was younger, "Boy you're gonna be president" But just like everything else those old crazy dreams just kinda came and went Chorus Well there's people and more people what do they know Go to work in some high rise and vacation down at the Gulf of Mexico (Ooh yeah) And there's winners and there's losers But they ainít no big deal Because the simple man baby pays for the thrills, the bills, the pills that kill Chorus ( Repeat Twice) ( D, G - 4 times ) ooooh yeah..... oooooh yeah.....
