R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A. (A Salute to '60s Rock) - John Cougar Mellencamp (Video, Lyrics & Chords)

Era el año 1986 cuando John Mellencamp, que en esa época se hacía llamar John Cougar Mellencamp, nos dejó esta obra maestra del rock.
Haciendo reminiscencia de cantantes y canciones de esa época dorada del rock nos dejó esta pequeña obra de arte.
Disfrutémosla
 
R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A. (A Salute to '60s Rock)  
John Cougar Mellencamp 
(Fast rock beat)

     E             A               D             A             E A D A
They come from the cities and they come from the smaller towns,

E           A            D             A     E      A       D    A
beat up cars with guitars and drummers goin' crack, boom, bam.


CHORUS

 E     A             D      A
 R. O. C. K.  in the U. S. A.

 E     A             D      A
 R. O. C. K.  in the U. S. A

 E     A             D      A           B
 R. O. C. K.  in the U. S. A, yeah, yeah

 (no chord)             E  A  D  A  etc, for a few more bars
 Rockin' in the U. S. A.


- The remainder of the song follows the same pattern:

Said goodbye to their families, said goodbye to their friends;
with pipedreams in their heads and very little money in their hands.
Some are black and some are white, aint't too proud to sleep on the floor tonight.
With the blind faith of Jesus, you know that they just might . . .

(no chord)
be rockin in the USA

Chorus

Voices from nowhere and voices from the larger towns
Filled our head full of dreams, 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.

(no chord)           (spoken)
Rockin' in the USA.   Hey!

Chorus
(repeat and fade)
