	***  MORE JOHN COUGAR MELLENCAMP  ***
                  ======================

Thanks for all of the mail I received after posting the
MELLENCAMP chords.  I've got a lot of requests for other
Mellencamp songs and will try to mail them all when I get
time (such as "Hurt So Good", "Crumblin Down" and "Authority
Song").

I will start with PINK HOUSES as it got the most votes.
This is also from a book of Mellencamp stuff (as opposed to
a bodgy interpretation by me).



PINK HOUSES (From the album "Uh-huh")
===========

- Medium Rock Beat


INTRO

The chords are:  G    C G         C G


VERSE I

	  G
There's a black man       with a black cat


livin' in a black neighbourhood


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   cleanin' up the evening slop.

	   F
And he looks at her and says, "Hey darlin',

C                              G
I can remember when you could   stop a clock"



CHORUS

		       C                      G
Oh, but ain't that Amer-i-ca,  for you and me!-

		       C                      G
Oh, but ain't that Amer-i-ca,  somethin' to see, baby!

		       C                       G
Oh, but ain't that Amer-i-ca,  home of the free!---


Yeah, little pink houses   for you and me,


Oh-- yeah, for you and me.


 Repeat Intro


VERSE II

Well there's a young man    in a T-shirt
listin' to a rockin' rollin' station.
He's got   greasy hair and a    greasy smile that says,
"Lord, this must  be my destination"

'Cause they told me   when I was younger, "Boy, you gonna be President"
But just like ev'rything else, those old crazy dreams just kinda   came
  and went

 Repeat Chorus and Intro


VERSE III

Well there's people     and more people.  What do they know?----
Got to work in some high rise and vacation down at the Gulf of Mexico.
And there's winners   and there's losers,   but they ain't no big deal.

`Cause the simple man, baby, pays for the thrills,   the bills,
   and the pills that kill.


 Repeat Chorus
