Born In The Usa Chords
SONG: Born in the USA
ARTIST: Bruce Springsteen
ALBUM: Born in the USA
TABBED BY: Kev Short


Start out with clean guitar then put a bit of distortion on when the song kicks in fully. 
Standard tuning for this, as ever, the recording is the only way to get the timing. 
For the faster parts of the song, strumming the chords instead of simply playing them and 
letting them ring could sound better.


For the keyboard medley play this:


E|--------------------------------|4-------------------------------|
B|--------7---------------5---7---|----5-------7-------------------|
G|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|

Rythym:
B
Born down in a dead man's town


The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
E
End up like a dog that's been beat too much


Till you spend half your life just covering up


B
Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
      E                                     B
I was born in the U.S.A., born in the U.S.A. now


B
Got in a little hometown jam


So they put a rifle in my hand
E
Sent me off to a foreign land


To go and kill the yellow man


B
Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
      E                                     B
I was born in the U.S.A., born in the U.S.A. now


B
Come back home to the refinery


Hiring man said "Son if it was up to me"
E
Went down to see my V.A. man
                                    | B | B | B | B | E | E | E | E |
He said "Son, don't you understand"


B
I had a brother at Khe Sahn


Fighting off the Viet Cong
E
They're still there, he's all gone


B
He had a woman he loved in Saigon
                                       | E | E | E | E |
I got a picture of him in her arms now


B
Down in the shadow of the penitentiary


Out by the gas fires of the refinery
    E
I'm ten years burning down the road


Nowhere to run ain't got nowhere to go


B
Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
E                                                      B
Born in the U.S.A., I'm a long gone Daddy in the U.S.A. now


Born in the U.S.A., Born in the U.S.A.
E
Born in the U.S.A., I'm a cool rocking Daddy in the U.S.A. now

About the artist behind Born In The Usa Chords:

Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen (born September 23, 1949) is an American songwriter, singer and guitarist. He has recorded and toured with the E Street Band. Springsteen is widely known for his brand of heartland rock infused with pop hooks, poetic lyrics, and Americana sentiments centered around his native New Jersey. His eloquence in expressing ordinary, everyday problems has earned him numerous awards, including eighteen Grammy Awards and an Academy Award, along with a notoriously dedicated and devoted global fan base. His most famous albums, Born to Run and Born in the U.S.A., epitomize his penchant for finding grandeur in the struggles of daily life. He has sold over 65 million albums in the U.S.[1]

Springsteen's lyrics often concern men and women struggling to make ends meet. He has gradually become identified with progressive politics. Springsteen is also noted for his support of various relief and rebuilding efforts in New Jersey and elsewhere, and for his response to the September 11, 2001 attacks, on which his album The Rising reflects.

Springsteen's recordings have tended to alternate between commercially accessible rock albums and somber folk-oriented works. Much of his iconic status stems from the concerts and marathon shows in which he and the E Street Band present intense ballads, rousing anthems, and party rock and roll songs, amongst which Springsteen intersperses long, whimsical or deeply emotional stories.

Springsteen has long had the nickname "The Boss", a term which he was initially reported to hate but now seems to have come to terms with, as he sometimes jokingly refers to himself as such on stage. The nickname originated when a young Springsteen, playing club gigs with a band in the 1960s, took on the task of collecting the band's nightly pay and distributing it amongst his bandmates.[2]
