[G]I was made in [Em]America   [C]        [D]
[G]Yeah I was made in [Em]America

in transcribing solos really, so I\'m not going to, however, it\'s all in Em so feel free to
away.)

C G C G D x3 (As Intro)

(After this there are some improvised vocals, the arpeggios at the very end are of D and
song is in Em so if you wish to work this last bit out for yourself, go ahead, they
part of the main song though and they aren\'t done live, which is why I\'m not tabbing them.)
