intro: D B - E


E
I met a roach in America, his family had a massive tree
          E7                                     A
They live just about everywhere, he was big in America
                E
He was big in America
E
I met a vet in America, he was alive, he was in overdrive
          E7                                      A
He'd just been around everywhere, he was big in America
                E
He was big in America


C#m                             G
And when you're big in America, you like to live in America
E                    C#m
You won't be on your own
C
And since you're big in America
G                                   B
You might as well make America your home
(N.C.)   G
Big in America

E
I met a girl in America, she wore the pants 'cross a big expanse
        E7                                        A
She was whippin' men everywhere, she was big in America
                 E
She was big in America
E
I met a car in America, the bumper hit, lucky I was fit
      E7                                         A
I was limping 'round everywhere, it was big in America
                E
It was big in America


C#m                             G
And when you're big in America, you like to live in America
E                    C#m
You won't be on your own
C
And since you're big in America
G                                   B
You might as well make America your home
         G               E

Big in America, big in America
