 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.
 EB
I was born in the U.S.A., born in the U.S.A. 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.
 EB
I was born in the U.S.A., born in the U.S.A. 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
 E
I'm 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.
 EB
 Born in the U.S.A., I'm a long gone Daddy in the U.S.A. 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
