Tabbed by Emrldeyzs

INTRO: C  Dm  F  G  4x 

VERSE:
 
C 
They pulled in just behind the fridge 
   Dm 
He lays her down, he frowns 
F 
"Gee my life's a funny thing 
    G 
Am I still too young" 
C 
He kissed her then and there 
             Dm 
She took his ring, took his babies 
   F 
It took him minutes, took her nowhere 
G 
Heaven knows she'd of taken anything 
 
CHORUS: 

F   G 
All night, she want's the young American 
C                     Dm 
Young American, young American, She wants the young American 
F   G       
All right, but she wants the young American 
 

C
Scanning life thru the picture window 
    Dm
She finds the slinky vagabond 
 F
He coughs as he passes her Ford Mustang 
 G 
Heaven forbid she'll take anything 

C   
But the freak and his type all for nothing 
Dm
Misses a step and cuts his hand 
F
Showing nothing he swoops like a song 
        G 
She cries "where have all papa's heroes gone?" 
 

CHORUS: 

F   G 
All night, she want's the young American 
C                     Dm 
Young American, young American, She wants the young American 
F   G       
All right, well, she wants the young American 

VERSE:

C
All the way from Washington 
   Dm
Her breadwinner begs of the bathroom floor 
F 
"Live for just these twenty years 
     G
Do we have to die for the fifty more?" 
 
CHORUS: 

F   G 
All night, he want's the young American 
C                     Dm 
Young American, young American, he wants the young American 
F   G       
All right, but he wants the young American 
 
BREAK: Am  F  Am  F  
 
BRIDGE:
 
Am         G     C             G      
Do you remember your President Nixon? 
Am         G        F 
So you remember the bills you have to pay 
            E 
or even yesterday? 
 
BREAK: D  G  GIII  D  A 

VERSE:
 
D 
Have you been the un-American 
Em 
Just you and your idle singing falsetto 'bout 
G 
leather, leather everywhere and 
A 
not a myth left from the Ghetto 


D 
Well, well, well would you carry a razor? 
Em 
In case, just in case of depression 
G 
Sit on your hands on a bus of survivors 
A 
Blushing at all the afro-sheeners 

D
Ain't that close to love? 
Em
Well ain't that poster love? 
G
Well it ain't that barbie doll 
A
Her hearts have been broken just like you 

CHORUS:
 
G   A 
All night, you want the young American 
D                       Em 
Young American, young American you want the young American 
G   A 
All right, you want the young American 
 
VERSE:

D
You ain't a pimp and you ain't a hustler 
Em
Pimps got a Caddy, Lady got a Chrysler 
G
Black's got respect, white's got his soul train 
A
Mama's got cramps and look at your hands hey 

D                            Em
("I heard the news today, oh boy") I got-suite and you got defeat 
G
Ain't there a man who could say no more 
A
Ain't there a woman I can sock on the jaw 

D
Ain't there a child I can hold without judging 
Em
Ain't there a pen that will write before they die 
G
Ain't you proud that you've still got faces 
A   
and ain't there one damn song  that can make me 

Break down and cry... 

CHORUS:  REPEAT TO FADE

G   A 
All night, I want the young American 
D                      Em
Young American, young American, I want the young American 
G   A       
All right, I want the young American
