I Am Not American  The Arrogant Worms


I AM NOT AMERICAN - The Arrogant Worms

Tabbed by Sam Filgate
(If you want to be really picky, you can add an sus4 chord before the last chord
in each of the verses. See Verse 5 for an example. Only for the completest!)
Intro: A E A B A
Verse 1:
[E]I am [A]not A[E]merican,
Though I [A]live in North A[E]merica
Which is [A]part of [B]the A[E]mericas
Which should [A]make me an A[B]merican
Verse 2: (Same chords as Verse 1)
Geographically Canadians,
Are certainly Americans
As are Venezuelans,
But not Hawaiians
Chorus 1:
They're [A]out in the middle of the [E]Ocean
[A]Just like the [B]U.S. Virgin I[E]slands,
Who [A]really shouldn't say they are A[G#m]meri[C#m]cans,
[F#]Or even [B]virgins
Verse 3:
[E]How did [A]two whole [E]continents,
Lose their [A]name to one cons[E]tituent?
[A]Where were we when the [G#m]U.S. [C#m]went,
And [F#]took the word American a[B]way?
Verse 4: (Same as Verse 3 chords)
But to be fair to them,
Their other name options,
Like U.S.A.ers or United Statesians,
Were pretty bad
Chorus 2: (Same as Chorus 1)
Still I want to be as American,
As the French are European,
Or those in Antarctica are Antarctican
Even if they're just penguins
Verse 5: (Same as Verse 3)
That leaves us Canadians
As Northern North Americans,
But Alaska's Norther curse them
We're surrounded by Americans.[(C#sus)] America[C#]ns!
Verse 6:
I just [F#]called those U.S.[B]A.ers A[F#]mericans
A [B]name meant for two continents [F#]not just them
For [B]if I [C#]said I was A[Bbm]meri[Ebm]can,
[G#]People would probably think I came from [C#]Maine
Chorus 3:
[B]Still I[C#] think I h[F#]ave a plan,
[B]Let's b[C#]ecome Anta[F#]rctican,
[B]And join [C#]up with [Bbm]the pen[Ebm]guins
[G#]For just like [C#]them, we're [B]not A[C#]meri[F#]can![B] [F#]
