Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Pink Houses  John Cougar Mellencamp

[G]There's a black man with a black cat living in a black neighborhood.
He's got an interstate running through his front yard.
You know he [F]thinks he's [C]got it so [G]good
[G]And there's a woman in the kitchen cleaning up the evening slop.
And he lo[F]oks at her and says, "Hey darlin'
[C]I can remember when you could [G]stop a clock"

[G]Oh but ain't that [C]America for you and [G]me
Ain't that [C]America something to [G]see baby
Aint that [C]America home of the [D]free
Little pink houses for [C]you and me   ( Enter Drums )
( G,C,G,C 2 times)
[G]Well there's a young man in a tee-shirt

listening to a rockin' rollin' station

He's got greasy hair and a greasy smile he says,
"[F]Lord this must [C]be my [G]destination"

Cause they told me when I was younger,

"Boy you're gonna be president"
But just like e[F]verything else those old crazy [C]dreams
just kinda came and [G]went

( OH BABY FOR YOU AND ME ) ( G, C, G, C, G, C,
( F, C, G, F, C, G, F, C, G, F, C, G)
[G]Well there's people and more people what do they know
Go to work in some high rise and [F]vacation down at the [C]Gulf of [G]Mexico
[G]And there's winners and there's losers

But they aint no big deal
Because the [F]simple man baby pays for the [C]thrills, the bills,
the [G]pills that kill

Chorus ( Repeat Twice)

( G, C - 4 times ) ooooh yeah..... oooooh yeah.....
