This is how I play Red, White, and Blue on my acoustic. It sonds pretty close to me. is standard and all the chords are basic. When you get to the places where you end with A chord and start a new line with the A chord, give a quick lift on it to get the break you hear in the song. A We don't have no plastic L.A. friends, G Ain't on the edge of no popular trend, D A Ain't never seen the inside of that magazine GQ. (LIFT)A We don't care if you're a lawyer, or a Texas oil man, G Or some waitress bustin' ass in some liquor stand. D A If you got soul we hang out with people just like you. CHORUS: Give a quick lift on the A chord here. A Em My hair's turnin' White. D My neck's always been Red. A My collar's still Blue. G We've always been here, D Just tryin' to sing the truth to you. G Guess, you can say, D We've always been, A Red, White, and Blue. A Ride our own bikes to Sturgis and pay our own dues, G Smokin' camels and drinkin' domestic brews. D A If you want to know where i've been, just look at my hands. (LIFT)A Yeah, I driven by the White House and spent some time in jail. G Mamma cried but she still wouldn't pay my bail. D A I ain't been no angel, but even God he understands. CHORUS:LIFT ON THE A SOLO: A My Daddy worked hard and so have I. G D We paid our taxes and gave our lives, to serve this great country A So what are they complainin' about. (LIFT)A Yeah we love our families, we love our kids. G You know it's love that makes us all so rich. D That's where we're at, if they don't like it they can just, A Just, GET THE HELL OUT!! CHORUS: LIFT ON THE A Here is where they get all crazy like at the end of most of their songs, so I just the the chorus again and finish STRONG on the last RED, WHITE, and BLUE. I hope you like version.
