Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This is my first submission. Thought I'd give it a go as I couldn't find it 
elsewhere. Bit unsure about the lyrics in places.

Capo 2nd Fret
FCGAmGFCG
F                 C                      F             C
You used to be a one horse town but the pony went away,
F                 C                  Am                  G
Ended up in China 'cos they make it cheaper there they say,
F                             C            Am   G       F
Now the store fronts all are empty and the factory is dead,
          F                  C       Am                    G
And these streets I used to walk on, now they're just my bed

                Am    G        F
And I'm goin down... down... down
          C
I'm goin down

F                       C               F                      C
Did a couple years at college but I just couldn't make it stick,
F                               C               Am                  G
Had to come back here and help Mama 'cos Daddy left when she got sick,
F                          C           Am         G     F
She worked everyday for nothin' until she turned sixty two,
            F               C                         Am                  G
And on the same day that I buried her the bank folk closed on her house too


(Chorus)
F                 C             G                   Am
It's my American dream and I've been all that I can be,
      G      F               C                G
With nothin' left to lose at all I guess I'm free,
                  Am       G          F
It's my American dream... dream... dream
                  C
It's my American dream


F                         C                 F                     C
So I stand here at this (Not sure of word!) and smile as best I can,
        F                    C                 Am                          G
With a sign that says Jesus loves you but it's hard to think he gives a damn
F                         C                    Am           G       F
When they roll down their windows and put some spare change in my hand,
     F                     C               Am               G
But I'd give it all right back to just be looked at like a man,

               Am    G        F
And I'm goin down... down... down
          C
I'm goin down

(Solo)

F                         C                       F                C
When it's cold I try the mission on night's like this I sleep outside,
        F                  C                     Am                      G
Under a bridge beside the interstate where I can hear those trucks roll by,
 F                  C            Am       G          F
And imagine I'm inside one, just rollin' down the road,
       F               C                 Am              G
But I wake up just to realise that this place is now my home,


F                 C             G                   Am
It's my American dream and I've been all that I can be,
      G      F               C                G
With nothin' left to lose at all I guess I'm free,
F                 C         G                   Am
'Cos my American dream disappeared in front of me,
          G      F               C                G
And with nothin' left to lose at all I guess I'm free,

                  Am       G          F
It's my American dream... dream... dream
                  C
It's my American dream...
