Verse 1:
D               E7             G         A/A2
Well she was an American girl, raised on promises
D                 E7                        G                   A/A2  
She couldn't help thinking that there was a little more to life somewhere else
A                  D               G                      Em
After all it was a great big world with lots of places to run to
A				A            A
And if she had to die - tryin' she - had one little promise she was gonna keep


Chorus:
G        A2         D                 Bm
Oh yeah, all right, take it easy baby make it last all night (make it last all night)
G       A           D
She was an American girl


Verse 2:
D                 E7               G                      A/A2  
Well it was kinda cold that night, she stood alone on the bal-co-ny
D                    E7                      
Yeah, she could hear the cars roll by, out on 
G                   A/A2  
four-forty-one like waves crashing on the beach
A                     D            G                    Em
And for one desperate moment there he crept back in her memory
A                   A                                A
God it's so painful when something that's so close - is still so far out of reach


[Chorus]
