(Intro) 

(Verse 1)
D D Cadd9 Cadd9
Bottom of my boots, sure are gettin worn,
G G D D
An there's a lot a holes, in this faded uniform,
D D Cadd9 Cadd9
My hands are black with dirt__ and so is my face,
G G D D
I aint ever been to hell, but it couldn't be any worse than this place,
D D Cadd9 Cadd9
Tell my wife don't worry cause I know what to do,
G G D D
It makes her feel better sometimes but I don't know if it's true,
D D Cadd9 Cadd9
I know if I die, it's just my time to go,
G G D D
But I pray to God everyday that I make it back home,

(Chorus)
A A Cadd9 Cadd9
Well when you've seen what I've seen things don't seem so bad,
G G D D
You quit worryin bout what you aint got an thank God for what you have,
A A Cadd9 Cadd9
Cause I could be raisin' my family in this place,
G G G G D D Cadd9 Cadd9 G G
But I was born an american___, by God's amazing grace,

G G - F F - D D

(Verse 2)*
For the last twelve months, I've had a new address.
The neighborhood smells like sewage, and the streets are lined with trash.
You never know what's gonna be the next thing to explode,
but unlike these people, I have another home.
It breaks my heart to see these kids out on the streets
walking barefoot through the trash, diggin for something to eat.
I give them what I got, just to let them know I care
and I thank God it's not my son that's standing there


(Repeat Chorus)


(Verse 3)
D D Cadd9 Cadd9
If you wanna talk about it you better keep it short,
G G D D
Cause I got a lot a lost time, I gotta make up for,
D D Cadd9 Cadd9
I really don't care why Bush went in-to Iraq,
G G D D
I know what I done there an' I'm damn sure proud a that,
D D Cadd9 Cadd9
If you got somethin' bad to say about the U.S.A.,
G G
You better save it for different ears unless you wanna crawl to pay
D D Cadd9 Cadd9
An' I'll laugh in your face when you say you've got it bad,
G G D D
Until you spent some time on the streets of Bahgdad,

(Chorus)
A A Cadd9 Cadd9
Well when you've seen what I've seen things don't seem so bad,
G G D D
You quit worryin bout what you aint got an thank God for what you've had,
A A Cadd9 Cadd9
Cause you could be raisin' your family in this place,
G G G G D D Cadd9 Cadd9 G G
But you were born an american___, by God's amazing grace____,

G G - F F - D D
