[Verse]
B
Born down in a dead man's town

The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
E
End up like a dog that's been beat too much

Till you spend half your life just covering up


[Chorus]
B
Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
      E
I was born in the U.S.A., born in the U.S.A. now


[Verse]
B
Got in a little hometown jam

So they put a rifle in my hand
E
Sent me off to a foreign land

To go and kill the yellow man


[Chorus]
B
Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
      E
I was born in the U.S.A., born in the U.S.A. now


[Verse]
B
Come back home to the refinery

Hiring man said "Son if it was up to me"
E
Went down to see my V.A. man
                                    B  E
He said "Son, don't you understand"


[Verse]
B
I had a brother at Khe Sahn

Fighting off the Viet Cong
E
They're still there, he's all gone
B
He had a woman he loved in Saigon
                                        E
I got a picture of him in her arms now


[Verse]
B
Down in the shadow of the penitentiary

Out by the gas fires of the refinery
    E
I'm ten years burning down the road

Nowhere to run ain't got nowhere to go


[Chorus]
B
Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
E                                                      B
Born in the U.S.A., I'm a long gone Daddy in the U.S.A. now


[Chorus]

Born in the U.S.A., Born in the U.S.A.
E
Born in the U.S.A., I'm a cool rocking Daddy in the U.S.A. now


[Outro]
