Just a small town homeboy, With big time dreams

Foollowing his conscience, In a world full of extremes

Fresh outta high school, Only seventeen

Every night I prayed to Jesus, And held my head up strong

Made in America, I was brought up on the street

My old man\'s independence, Seemed good enough for me

I was made in America

C G C G D x1 (As Intro)

G			Em	 C		  D
Never cared much about politics, Til I was twenty one

G		   Em	   C			    D
But I woke up when Lennon, Found the wrong end of a gun

He left his inspiration, Before he said goodbye

G	    Em
And we were alright

C G C G D x3 (As Intro)

(After this there are some improvised vocals, the arpeggios at the very end are of D and 
song is in Em so if you wish to work this last bit out for yourself, go ahead, they 
part of the main song though and they aren\'t done live, which is why I\'m not tabbing them.)
