All American Boy  Bobby Bare

Gather round cat[C]s and I'll tell you a story[F]
Bout [G7]how to become an all American [C]boy
Buy you a guitar and [F]put it in tune
[G7]You'll be a rocking and a rolling [C]soon
[F]Impressing the girls picking hot [G7]licks and all that [C]jazz
Ah I bought me a guitar a [F]year ago
Learned [G7]how to play in a day or [C]so
And all around town it was [F]well understood
That [G7]I was knocking 'em out like Johnny B [C]Goode
[F]Hot licks showing [G7]off ah number [C]one
Yeah I practiced all day and [F]up into the night
[G7]My papa's hair was turning [C]white
Cause he didn't like [F]rock'n roll
[G7]He said you can stay boy but that's [C]gotta go
[F]He's a square he [G7]just didn't dig me at [C]all
So I took my guitar [F]picks and all
Bid [G7]farewell to my poor ol' [C]pa
Split for Memphis where [F]they say y'all
Them [G7]swinging cats are having a [C]ball
[F]Sessions hot [G7]licks and all they dig [C]me
I was rocking and a bopping and I was [F]getting the breaks
The [G7]girls all said that I have what it [C]takes
When up stepped a man [F]with big cigar
He [G7]said come here cat I'm gonna make you a [C]star
[F]I'll put you on bandstand [G7]buy you a Cadillac [C]sign here kid
I signed my name and [F]became a star
[G7]Having a ball with my gui[C]tar
Driving a big long [F]Cadillac
And [G7]fighting the girls off of my [C]back
[F]They just kept a coming [G7]screaming yeah [C]they liked it
So I picked my guitar [F]with a great big grin
And [G7]the money just kept on [C]pouring in
But then one day my [F]Uncle Sam he said (knock knock) here I am
[F]Uncle Sam needs you boy I'm a [C]gonna cut your hair off
Ah take this rifle kid give me that guitar yeah
