Pink Houses  John Mellencamp

There's a [G]black man       with a black cat
livin' in a black neighbourhood
He's got an interstate running through his front yard.
You know, he [F]thinks he's   [C]got it so [G]good
And there`s a woman in the kitchen cleanin' up the evening slop.
And he look[F]s at her and says, "Hey darlin',
[C]I can remember when you could  [G] stop a clock"
Oh, but ain't that Amer[C]-i-ca,  for you and me![G]-
Oh, but ain't that Amer[C]-i-ca,  somethin' to se[G]e, baby!
Oh, but ain't that Amer[C]-i-ca,  home of the free[G]!---
Yeah, little pink houses for you and me,
Oh-- yeah, for you and me.
Repeat Intro
Well there's a young man in a T-shirt
listin' to a rockin' rollin' station.
He's got greasy hair and a greasy smile that says,
"Lord, this must be my destination"
'Cause they told me when I was younger, "Boy, you gonna be President"
But just like ev'rything else, those old crazy dreams just kinda came
and went
Repeat Chorus and Intro
Well there's people and more people. What do they know?----
Got to work in some high rise and vacation down at the Gulf of Mexico.
And there's winners and there's losers, but they ain't no big deal.
`Cause the simple man, baby, pays for the thrills, the bills,
and the pills that kill.
Repeat Chorus
