Dillinger Four
I love this song, had to figure it out. First tab ever!


D     G     D     G 

A     G     D  G  D


         D                                 A
Yeah I'm stealing cigarettes  Selling them off to friends for rent
       B                                           G
Plus a paycheck and still in debt  I'm asking, how could it be?
  D                                              A
I know they know I'm beneath them  Even homeless a**holes know my name
         B                                               G
Now it's Urban Flight or cell for the night  Y'know it's all the same


        A                          G
One can tell themselves About when going gets tough
    A                  G
But determination Just ain't enough
     A                      G (strum once)
When over-time defines your life


              D          G       A
This American Me
              D          G       A
This American Me

Verse 2 (same as first):

D                                    A
Tradition tells us home own  But the timecards saying no go
        B                                        G
Now the suits are talking foreclose  From sea to shining sea
     D                             A
Time was a war time economy  Was a silver lining to tragedy
         B                                            G
But even those with homes are now those alone  In the land of the free

  A                       G
I asked for nothing And I got it in spades
A                         G
Worked for a living and I earned a cage
         A                     G (strum once)
Now they say I look old for my age

              D         G      A
This American me
              D         G      A
This American me

I'm pretty sure that's right. Feel free to correct if not!
