Chords and lyrics:
There's a [G]black man with a black cat
Livin' in a black neighborhood
He's got an interstate runnin' through his front yard
You know he [F]thinks he's [C]got it so [G]good
And there's a [G]woman in the kitchen
Cleanin' up the evenin' slop
And he [F]looks at her and says, "Hey darlin'[C]
I can remember when [G]you could stop a clock"
Chorus:
Oh, but ain't that [C]America for you and me[G]
Ain't that [C]America somethin' to [G]see baby
Ain't that [C]America home of the [D]free, yeah
Little pink [C]houses for you and me
Oh for you and me, ooh yeah
(Main riff starts on me and repeats for 4 times)
Well there's a young man in a T-shirt
Listenin' to a rock 'n' rollin' station
He's got a greasy hair, greasy smile
He says, "Lord this must be my destination", ooh yeah
'Cause they told me when I was younger
"Boy you're gonna be President"
But just like everything else those old crazy dreams
Just kinda came and went
Oh, but ain't that America for you and me
Ain't that America somethin' to see baby
Ain't that America home of the free, yeah
Little pink houses for you and me
Oh for you and me, ooh yeah
(Main riff 4 times)
Bridge:
[F] [C] [G] [C/G] [G]  
[F] [C] [G] [C/G] [G]  
[F]Ooh yeah, [C]ooh yeah[G] [C/G] [G]
[F]Ooh yeah, [C]ooh yeah[G] [C/G] [G]
(Main riff 4 times)
Well there's people and more people
What do they know, know, know?
Go to work in some high rise
And vacation down at the Gulf of Mexico, ooh yeah
And there's winners and there's losers
But they ain't no big deal
'Cause the simple man baby pays the thrills
The bills, the pills that kill
Oh, but ain't that America for you and me
Ain't that America somethin' to see baby
Ain't that America home of the free, baby
Oh little pink houses for you and me, for you and me
(Main riff 2 times)
Ooh yeah
Ain't that America for you and me
Ain't that America hey somethin' to see baby
Ain't that America oh, the home of the free, ooo yeah yeah yeah
Little pink houses for you and me
Oh for you and me
(Main riff 4 times)
Ooh yeah
(Ends on C, G)
