TITLE: R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.
Lyrics and Chords

They come from the cities and they come from the smaller towns
Beat up cars with guitars and drummers goin' crack, boom, bam

/ E A D A E A D A / :

R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.
R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.
R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A., yeah, yeah
Rockin' in the U.S.A.

/ E A D A / / E A D A B - - - / E A D A E A D A /

Well, they said goodbye to their families, said goodbye to their friends
With their pipedreams in their heads and very little money in their hands
Some are black and some are white, ain't too proud to sleep on your floor tonight
With the blind faith of Jesus, you know that they just might
Be rockin' in the U.S.A.

/ E A D A E A D A / / / E A D A B - - - / E A D - E A D - /


Voices from nowhere and voices from the larger towns
Filled our head full of dreams, and turned our world upside down
There was Frankie Lymon, Bobby Fuller, Mitch Ryder (they were rockin')
Jackie Wilson, Shangrilas, Young Rascals (they were rockin')
Spotlight on Martha Reeves, let's don't forget James Brown
Rockin' in the U.S.A., hey!

R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A. {Repeat to fade}
