American by Stone Cold Fox
Chords:

D                         G
Inside my house we had forgotten now 
D                         G
Inside my house we had forgotten how 
     Bm
To live in the country with three white stones 
   G
Surrounding a flag of branches and bones 
      Bm
Of mirrors of contracts and signed armored clad 
         G
Of the ways we play circus to hide what we had
----
             D                           G
They won't tell me what I am to be an American
      D                                                 G
I'm here but my hearts at sea, oh they won't speak for me
----
D                                   G
And someone spoke too soon they got caught again 
   D                                               G
And the kids they lost their breath in the revolution 
       Bm
They settled for houses and for small kids
       G 
To tell them the stories of when they were young 
          Bm
The warriors they thought they'd become 
      G
Now hide in the surface like the roots from the sun
----
            D                          G
They won't tell me what I am to be an American 
      D                                               G
I'm here but my hearts at sea, oh they won't speak for me
-----
BRIDGE: Bm, G, Bm, G, A7sus4 , A
----
        D
I will stay up late and dig my own trench 
     G
I'll ask all the questions they never present 
          Bm
And it's sick and its vain and it's hard to explain 
      G
To question the role or the play of the game 
               D
Not for your founding father or for the new born threat 
               G
Not for your radical breach that you tend to forget 
              Bm
Not for your good mother or the weight of her debt 
               G
Not for your children at sea, but your own way to..ooo
 D                          G
Tell what you are to be an American 
          D                                             G
I can't live by your words and remain the person which I came 
             D                          G
They wont tell me what I am to be an American 
      D                                               G
I'm here but I'm losing my cool, no I won't wait for you.




NOTES:
After most of the D chords and before each G you can play a  Dmaj7, ex:
D         Dmaj7           G
Inside my house we had forgotten now
