Lost in America  Alice Cooper

Great song from a great album. I saw a request for this a while ago,
so here's my attempt at it. If anyone can do better, or sees this in
one of the magazines, please let me know so that I can play it better
as well! :-)

I ain't got a girl 'cuz I ain't got a car (Riff A)
I ain't got a car 'cuz I ain't got a job (Riff A)

CHORUS: (same riff as the intro)
Lost in America, Lost in America, Lost in America, Lost
VERSE 2: (played same as the first)
I got a mom but I ain't got a dad
My dad's got a wife but she ain't my mom

But I want my mom and dad to be my real mom and dad...
Is that so bad?
[D]Oh, I think I've been had...
