Year: 2004 - Album: Words & Music: John Mellencamp's Greatest Hits

Written by John Cougar

There's a black man with a black cat livin' in a black neighborhood   
He's got an interstate runnin' through his front yard   
                        F                       C             G 
You know he thinks that he's got it so good   
And there's a woman in the kitchen cleanin' up the evenin' slop   
       F                                    C                  
And he looks at her and says, "Hey darlin', I can remember when    
   you could stop a clock."   

G C G Oh but ain't that America for you and me G C G Ain't that America somethin' to see baby G C D Ain't that America home of the free
C Little pink houses for you and me G G C G G F C G There's a young man in a t-shirt Listenin' to a rockin' rollin' station He's got greasy hair, greasy smile He says, "Lord this must be my destination." 'Cause they told me when I was younger "Boy you're gonna be president." But just like everything else those old crazy dreams Just kinda came and went :|| Chorus G G C G G F C G Well there's people and more people What do they know know know Go to work in some high rise And vacation down at the Gulf of Mexico Ooh yeah And ther's winners and there's losers But they ain't no big deal 'Cause the simple man baby pays for the thrills, the bills, the pills that kill :|| Chorus
