This is the corrected version.  The *’s mean it’s the
chord an octave higher, so figure that out yourself.

[Are we starting from the beginning or what?  Yeah.]

B A D F#* (x2) G* D* E* A G A E* (All x2)

Verse 1:
B          A          D              F#*
The man on the television said I need to drink this,
B          A       D           F#*
And sleep with that in order to be cool.
G*            D*      E*        A
And you know that I would do almost anything,
G            A       E*
To be like that guy on TV.
G*           D*    E*             A
I know that if I had just the right outfit
G         A             E*
And hairstyle that could be me.

Verse 2:
B                  A        D           F#*
Don’t you know you can’t be cool if you dress dumb,
B            A           D           F#*
I need to have that ‘cause everybody’s got one.
G*               D*                 E*            A
I think I’ll start smoking that would make me intellectual,
G                A         E*
That’s what I’ve always wanted to be.
G*           D*                  E*           A
I need to lift weights, that would make me more sexual,
G                A        E*
And that would be so good for me.

F           C                  F             C
In America it’s wonderful, all you have to do is fake it.
G      D                       G             D
Own anything you want, all you have to do it take it.
F        C            F             C
Live for today, don’t think about tomorrow,
G           D        G        D
Have a good time in America-Gomorrah.

Interlude/Intro Chords:
B A D F#* (x2) G* D* E* A G A E* (All x2)

Verse 3:
B            A               D          F#*
What are you looking at, you better not make me mad.
B             A         D                   F#
I’ll drive by your house and shoot your dog, and mom, and dad.
G*    D*         E*       A           G       A           E*
I don’t you or the Bible or anything to tell me what is the law.
G*          D*     E*       A           G           A  E*
With a good enough lawyer I can do anything in Beautiful America.


Bridge Intro: (From Westside Story)
E A E B G D C E (x2)

E               A
I want to be in America,
E              B
Okay for me in America,
G                    D
Everything’s free in America,
C                  E
For a small fee in America.
E               A
I want to be in America,

Okay for me in America,
G                    D

For a small fee in America.

I think for the second parts of the verse it goes G D E B, G A E instead of G D E A, G A E, and during "have a good time in America-Gomorrah" it is D A D A.
