Kenny Chesney American Kids Lyrics

Doublewide Quick Stop midnight T-top
Jack in her Cherry Coke town
Momma and Daddy put their roots right here
'Cause this is where the car broke down
Yellow dog school bus kickin' up red dust
Pickin' us up by a barbed wire fence
M-tv on the RCA
No A.C in the vents

We were Jesus save me, blue jean baby
Born in the USA
Trailer park truck stop, faded little map dots
New York to LA

We were teenage dreamin', front seat leanin'
Baby, come give me a kiss
Put me on the cover of the Rollin' Stone
Uptown down home American kids

Growin' up in little pink houses
Makin' out on living room couches
Blowin' that smoke on a Saturday night
A little messed up, but we're all alright

Baptist church parkin' lot, tryin' not to get caught
Take her home and give her your jacket
Makin' it to second base, but sayin' you went all the way

Monday afternoon at practice
Sister's got a boyfriend Daddy doesn't like
Now he's sittin' out back, 3030 in his lap
In the blue bug zapper light

We were Jesus save me, blue jean baby
Born in the USA
Trailer park truck stop, faded little map dots
New York to LA

We were teenage dreamin', front seat leanin'
Baby, come give me a kiss
Put me on the cover of the Rollin' Stone
Uptown down home American kids

Growin' up in little pink houses
Makin' out on livin' room couches
Blowin' that smoke on a Saturday night
A little messed up, but we're all alright

We were Jesus save me, blue jean baby
Born in the USA
Trailer park truck stop, faded little map dots
New York to LA

We were teenage dreamin', front seat leanin'
Baby, come give me a kiss
Put me on the cover of the Rollin' Stone
Uptown down home American kids

Growin' up in little pink houses
Makin' out on living room couches
Blowin' that smoke on a Saturday night
A little messed up, but we're all alright

American Kids Guitar Tips

This song is a bit fast paced for the right hand rhythm but not difficult. You'll have a quick riff to play in various places after each chorus. The chords needed are Em, G6, C, D,and Bm. For the rhythm if you play a down down up down up down up and then repeat as you move through the song that will keep your timing spot on.

There is a small section near the middle of the song that takes that riff and expands it a bit into a picking break but that's not difficult. It's fully explained in the video tutorial lesson.
