Great song from a great album.  I saw a request for this a while ago,
so here's my attempt at it.  If anyone can do better, or sees this in
one of the magazines, please let me know so that I can play it better
as well! :-)

and now, the lyrics (play the riff after each line is sung):

INTRO (intro riff x 2)

VERSE 1:
I ain't got a girl 'cuz I ain't got a car (Riff A)
I ain't got a car 'cuz I ain't got a job (Riff A)
I ain't got a job 'cuz I ain't got a car (Riff A)
So I'm looking for a girl with a job and a car (Riff B)

(play D chord and let ring)
Ah, don't you know where you are...

CHORUS: (same riff as the intro)
Lost in America, Lost in America, Lost in America, Lost

VERSE 2: (played same as the first)
I got a mom but I ain't got a dad
My dad's got a wife but she ain't my mom
Mom's looking for a man to be my dad
But I want my mom and dad to be my real mom and dad...
	Is that so bad?

D
Oh, I think I've been had...

CHORUS x 2

BRIDGE:
(play E chord and let ring, then)

G|-----------------------
Well, I live at the 7-11

			  B|-5--5-5-5- Any help?)

VERSE 3:
I can't go to school 'cuz I ain't got a gun
I ain't got a gun 'cuz I ain't got a job

So I'm looking for a girl with a gun and a job...
	and a house... with cable

D
Don't you know where you are...
