Young American

Tuning-Standard 
Tabber-coldshot11      [email protected] 
 
intro: C, Dm, F, G (4x) 
 
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'dve 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 
It's all right-but she wants the young American 
 
Scanning life thru the picture window 
She finds the slinky vagabond 
He coughs as he passes her Ford Mustang 
Heaven forbid she'll take anything 
But the freak and his type-all for nothing 
Misses a step and cuts his hand 
Showing nothing he swoops like a song 
She cries "where have all papa's heroes gone?" 
 
All night-she want s the young American 
Young American, young American 
she wants the young American 
It's all right-but she wants the young American 
 
All the way from Washington 
He breadwinner begs of the bathroom floor 
"Live for just these twenty years 
Do we have to die for the fifty more?" 
 
All night-he want s the young American 
Young American, young American 
he wants the young American 
It's all right-but he wants the young American... 
 
interlude: Am, G, F, G 
 
bridge: 
Am               G      C      
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(ii), G(iii), D(ii), A(ii) 
 
D 
Have you been the un-American 
Em 
Just you and your id 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 
Ain't that close to love? 
Well ain't that poster love? 
Well it ain't that brbie doll 
Her hearts have been broken just like you 
 
G  A 
All night-you want  the young American 
D                                     Em 
Young American, young American 
you want the young American 
    G   A 
It's all right-you want the young American 
 
You ain't a pimp and you ain't a hustler 
Pimps got a Caddy-lady got a Chrysler 
Black's got respect-white's got his soul train 
Mama's got cramps and look at your hands hey 
"I heard the news today, oh boy" 
I got-suite and you got defeat 
Ain't there a man-who could say no more 
Ain't there a woman-I can sock on the jaw 
Ain't there a child-I can hold without judging 
Ain't there a pen-that will write before they die 
Ain't you proud-that you've still got faces 
and ain't there one *** song  that can make me 
break down and cry... 
 
All night-I want the young American 
Young American, young American 
I want the young American 
It's all right-I want the young American

Here is a David Bowie song I tried to figure out the other day and this is  
what I came up with. I am not sure I got everything correct. The G might 
be a Gsus4 or something similar. Help me out here. Corrections are welcome! 
 
 
 
C

G 
He laid her down - he frowns 
Dm 
Gee my life's a funny thing 
F 
Am I still too young 
C 
He kissed then and there 
G 
She took his ring took his babies 
Dm 
It him minutes took her nowhere 
F 
Heaven knows she'd've taken anything 
 
Em     F#m 
All night - she wants the young American 
Em          F#m 
It's all right - but she wants the young American 
 
Scanning life through the picture window 
She finds the slinky vagabond 
He coughs as he passes her Ford Mustang 
Heaven forbid she'll taken anything 
But the freak and his type - all for nothing 
He misses a step and cuts his hand 
Showing nothing he swoops like a song 
She cries where have all papa's heroes gone 
 
All night - she wants the young American

Her breadwinner begs of the bathroom floor 
We live for just these twenty years 
Do we have to die for fifty more 
 
All night - she wants the young American 
It's all right - but she wants the young American 
 
Do you remember president Nixon 
Do you remember all the bills you have to pay 
or even yesterday .................................
