Strum: DUDUUDU
 G
There's a black man   With a black cat
Livin' in a black neighborhood
He's got a interstate runin' through his front yard
 FCG
You know he thinks he's got it so good
There's a woman In the kitchen
Cleanin' up the evenin' slop

And he looks at her and says hey darlin
 G
I remember when you could stop a clock

There's a young man   In a t-shirt
Listnin' to a rock n' roll station
He's got greasy hair greasy smile

Said boy you're gonna be president

Just like everything else those old dreams kinda went away

 Well there's people   And more people
But what do they know ,no,no

And there's winners And there's losers
And that aint no big deal Cuz the simple man baby
 CG
Pays the bills the bills,the bills that kill

Chorus x2

Oh but ain't that America for you and me Ain't that America
 GCD
Sometin' to see baby Ain't that America home of the free
