Were An American Band
The other chord versions are wrong, so I figured I'd post a corrected version.  It's a very simple tune. 
Basically, all the chords are 5 chords.

We're an American Band-Grand Funk Railroad

Four young Chiquitas in Omaha Was waiting for the band to return from the show
Feelin' good feelin' right its Saturday night The hotel detective he was out of sight
Now these fine ladies they had a plan They was out to meet the boys in the band
The said,  "come on dudes lets get it on" And we proceeded to tear that hotel down

About the artist behind Were An American Band:

Grand Funk Railroad (later known as Grand Funk) is an American rock band. The Grand Funk Railroad lineup was highly popular during the 1970s, having sold over 25 million records and selling out arenas worldwide and having been awarded four RIAA gold albums in 1970, the most for any American Group that year. The current Grand Funk Railroad lineup uses the nickname "The American Band", from their hit song "We're an American Band". A popular take on the band during their heyday was that the critics hated them, but audiences loved them. Contrary to the name, the band is not a real funk band; but rather an attempt to pun the name "Grand Trunk Railroad" as that railroad went through Flint; although some sources cite the band's "The Locomotion" cover song as a funk track.
