American by Stone Cold Fox
[D]Inside my house we had for[G]gotten now
[D]Inside my house we had for[G]gotten how
To li[Bm]ve in the country with three white stones
Sur[G]rounding a flag of branches and bones
Of mir[Bm]rors of contracts and signed armored clad
Of the wa[G]ys we play circus to hide what we had
They won't te[D]ll me what I am to be an Ame[G]rican
I'm he[D]re but my hearts at sea, oh they won't speak for m[G]e
[D]And someone spoke too soon they got [G]caught again
And[D] the kids they lost their breath in the revoluti[G]on
They se[Bm]ttled for houses and for small kids
To tell[G] them the stories of when they were young
The warrio[Bm]rs they thought they'd become
Now hi[G]de in the surface like the roots from the sun
They won't t[D]ell me what I am to be an A[G]merican
I'm he[D]re but my hearts at sea, oh they won't speak for[G] me
[-----]BRIDGE: Bm, G, Bm, G, A7sus4 , A
I will s[D]tay up late and dig my own trench
I'll [G]ask all the questions they never present
And it's s[Bm]ick and its vain and it's hard to explain
To que[G]stion the role or the play of the game
Not for your fo[D]unding father or for the new born threat
Not for your ra[G]dical breach that you tend to forget
Not for your g[Bm]ood mother or the weight of her debt
Not for your ch[G]ildren at sea, but your own way
T[D]ell what you are to be an A[G]merican
I can't li[D]ve by your words and remain the person which I[G] came
They wont tel[D]l me what I am to be an Ame[G]rican
I'm he[D]re but I'm losing my cool, no I won't wait for y[G]ou.
After most of the D chords and before each G you can play a Dmaj7, ex:
[D]Inside my [Dmaj7]house we had for[G]gotten now
