American Girl  Roger McGuinn



 

 

[D]Well she was an A[E7]merican girl [G]raised on [A]promises
[D]She couldn't help [E7]thinking that there was
A [G]little more to life [A]somewhere else
After all it was a [D]great big world [G]with lots of places to [Em]run to
[A]And if she had to die trying she had one little promise she was gonna
keep
[G]Oh yea [A]allright [D]take it easy baby [Bm]make it last all night
[G]She was [A]an American [D]girl
[D]Well it was kind [E7]cold that night she [G]stood alone on the [A]balcony
[D]Yea she could hear the cars [E7]roll by
[G]Out on 441 like waves [A]crashing on the beach
And for one desperate [D]moment there [G]he crept back in her [Em]memory
[A]God it's so painful when something that's so close
Is hard to find
[G]Oh yea [A]allright [D]take it easy baby [Bm]make it last all night
[G]She was [A]an American [D]girl
