From: "Jeffrey J. Gray"


[C]Do you like Am[F]erican [G]music? I[C] like Am[F]erican [G]music
[C]Don't you like A[F]merican m[G]usic, b[C]aaaa[F]byyy[G]y[etc...]
I want you to hold me, I want your arms around me
I want you to hold me, baby
Did you do too many drugs? I did too many drugs
Did you do too many drugs too, baby
You were [Am]born too late, I was b[E]orn too soon
[F]Every time I look at that [G]ugly moon
It reminds me of [C]you, it re[F]minds me of y[C]ou
[A]Oh-[G]oh, [A]oh-[G]oh, [A]oh-[G]oh
I need a date to the prom, would you like to come along
Nobody will go to the prom with me, baby
They didn't like American music, they never heard American music
They didn't know the music was in my soul, baby
You were born too soon, I was born too late
But every time I look at that ugly lake, It reminds me of meeee
(d'you like [F]American music) It reminds me of [C]meeee
(d'you like [F]American music) It reminds me of [C]meeee
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
 
 SOLO (At end, bend G to A, then hit and release back to G):

A cappella:
D'you like American music? (We like American music)
I like American music (Baaaabyyyyy)
D'you like American music (We like all kinds of music)
But I like American music best (Baaaabyyyy)
You were born too late, I was born too late
But every time I look at that ugly lake, it reminds me of me
It reminds me of meeee (do you like American Music)
It reminds me of meeee (I can hear the music)
It reminds me of meeee (sweet, sweet music)
 
 (C-F repeats, getting more frenetic, and finish)
