VERSE
CM7                         Gm/C           F/C C
We heard Richard Nixon say, welcome to the U-S-A
    G/B            Am7
The common sense I sometimes lack
    Dm7         G7
Has opened up a seismic crack
      C/E             F          G
We've fallen in and I can't pull back
      Ab          Bb         CM7
And I guess we'll have to stay

VERSE
   CM7                             Gm/C        F/C     C
In open arms we put our trust they put us on a big red bus
     G/B             Am7
Twin spirits soaking up a dream
Dm7              G
Fuel to feed the press machine
      C/E             F        G
After years that were long and lean
      Ab      Bb     CM7
We're finally on our way
 
CHORUS
    Bm7             E7                Am           Am/G
And Richard Nixon's on his knees he's sent so many overseas
             F                         G               CM7
He'd like to know if you and me could help him in some way
         F              D/F#             G    E7/G#   Am
A little camouflage and glue to mask the evil that men do
        F         C/E       Bb   F
A small diversion caused by two, pale kids come to play
    G                           Ab7            Bb  CM7
And we heard Richard Nixon say "welcome to the U-S-A"
 
VERSE
CM7                              Gm/C             F/C  C
Neither of us understood the way things ticked in Hollywood
        G/B           Am7
We just loaded in and grabbed the bat
     Dm7             G7
With little room to swing a cat
    C/E                 F           G
And pretty soon we were where it's at
   Ab     Bb        CM7
Or so the papers say
    CM7                            Gm/C             F/C   C
And all around us suntanned teens, beauty like we'd never seen
    G/B              Am7
Our heroes led us by the hand
        Dm7               G7
Through Brian Wilson's promised land
      C/E              F      G
Where Disney's God and he commands
     Ab       Bb        CM7
Both mice and men to stay
 
CHORUS
    Bm7             E7                Am           Am/G
And Richard Nixon's on his knees he's sent so many overseas
             F                         G               CM7
He'd like to know if you and me could help him in some way
         F              D/F#             G    E7/G#   Am
A little camouflage and glue to mask the evil that men do
        F         C/E       Bb   F
A small diversion caused by two, pale kids come to play
    G                           Ab7            Bb  CM7
And we heard Richard Nixon say "welcome to the U-S-A"
 
BRIDGE
     Eb                    Bb/D         C
In a bright red Porsche on Sunset I saw Steve Mcqueen
             Eb             Bb/D             C
I guess he's just about the coolest guy I've ever seen
        F               D/F#            G                 E7/G#
And for you and me that speeding car is how it's going to be
         Am               D/F#             G       n/c
I see no brakes just open road and lots of gasoline
 
VERSE
   C                           Gm/C           F/C C
Oh we heard Richard Nixon say, welcome to the U-S-A
    G/B            Am7
The common sense I sometimes lack
    Dm7         G7
Has opened up a seismic crack
      C/E             F          G7
We've fallen in and I can't pull back
 
VAMP
F
Pale kids come to play
    G7                                   Ab7    Bb      CM7
And we heard Richard Nixon say, "I gotta go but you can stay"
