[B]Born down in a dead man's town


The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
[E]End up like a dog that's been beat too much


Till you spend half your life just covering up


[B]Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
I was [E]born in the U.S.A., born in the U.S.A.[B] now


[B]Got in a little hometown jam


So they put a rifle in my hand
[E]Sent me off to a foreign land


To go and kill the yellow man



[B]Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
I was [E]born in the U.S.A., born in the U.S.A.[B] now


[B]Come back home to the refinery


Hiring man said "Son if it was up to me"
[E]Went down to see my V.A. man
| B | B | B | B | E | E | E | E |
He said "Son, don't you understand"


[B]I had a brother at Khe Sahn


Fighting off the Viet Cong
[E]They're still there, he's all gone


[B]He had a woman he loved in Saigon
| E | E | E | E |
I got a picture of him in her arms now


[B]Down in the shadow of the penitentiary


Out by the gas fires of the refinery
I'm [E]ten years burning down the road


Nowhere to run ain't got nowhere to go


[B]Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
[E]Born in the U.S.A., I'm a long gone Daddy in the U.S.A.[B] now


Born in the U.S.A., Born in the U.S.A.
[E]Born in the U.S.A., I'm a cool rocking Daddy in the U.S.A. now
