D                E7           G         A
Well she was an American girl raised on promises
D                 E7
She couldn't help thinking that there was
  G                   A
A little more to life somewhere else
                   D               G                      Em
After all it was a great big world with lots of places to run to
A
And if she had to die trying she had one little promise she was gonna

keep
G      A        D                 Bm
Oh yea allright take it easy baby make it last all night
G       A           D
She was an American girl
D                E7                  G                  A
Well it was kind cold that night she stood alone on the balcony
D                           E7
Yea she could hear the cars roll by
G                     A
Out on 441 like waves crashing on the beach
                      D            G                    Em
And for one desperate moment there he crept back in her memory
A
God it's so painful when something that's so close

Is hard to find
G      A        D                 Bm
Oh yea allright take it easy baby make it last all night
G       A           D
She was an American girl
