CAPO I
(Intro A Am9 A A Am9 A)
[A]I used to see you on every T.V., your smiling face looked back at me.
[D]I used to see you on every T.V., your smiling face looked back at me. [A]
[E]Then they caught you with the girl next door, People's money piled on the
floor,
[Bm] [D]A Am9 A etc.
Accusations that you try to deny, Revelations and rumors begin to fly.
[A]Now you think about reaching out, maybe get some help from above.
[D]Now you think about reaching out, maybe get some help from above. [A]
[E]Reporters crowd around your house going through your garbage like a pack of
hounds,
[Bm] [D] 
Speculating what they may find out, it don't matter now, y[A]ou're all washed
up.
[E]You wake up in the middle of the night, [A]you[E]r sheets are wet and your face is[A] [E]
white.
[E]You tried to make a good thing last. How c[A]ould s[E]omething so good, go bad,[Bsus2]
so fast?
A[A]merican dream, American dream [Bm]
[A]American dream, American dream. [Bm] [D]
[A]Don't know when things went wrong, might have been when you were young and
strong.
[D]Don't know when things went wrong, might have been when you were young and[A]
strong.
[E]Reporters crowd around your house, going through your garbage like a pack of
hounds,
[Bm]Speculating what they may find out, it do[D]n't matter now, you're all washed
up.
[A]Don't know when things went wrong, might have been when you were young and
strong.
American dream, American dream. Don't know when t[D]hings went wrong,
Might have been when you were young and strong. A[A]merican dream, American
dream.
[A] [Am9] [D] [E]
