D



1st Verse:

D                     E7            G            A
     Well she was an American girl     raised on promises
D                 E7                        G                       A
     she couldn't help thinkin' there was a little more to life     somewhere else     
after all it was a
D                G                         Em
great big world     with lots of places to run to
A
and if she had to die     tryin' she     had one little promise she was gonna keep



Chorus:

G                A
     Oh yeah          all right
D                           Bm
     take it easy baby             make it last all night
G                A                D
     she was          an American girl



2nd Verse:

D                      E7                  G                      A
     Well it was kinda cold that night     she stood alone on the balcony
D                            E7                      G            A
     Yeah she could hear the cars roll by     out on 441     like waves crashin' on the 
beach     and for one desperate
D             G                     Em
moment there   he crept back in her memory
A
God it's so painful when something that's so close is still     so     far out of reach



Chorus:

G                A
     Oh yeah          all right
D                           Bm
     take it easy baby             make it last all night
G                A                D
     she was          an American girl
