All American Boy Written and recorded by Bobby Bare
C F Gather round cats and I'll tell you a story G7 C Bout how to become an all American boy F Buy you a guitar and put it in tune G7 C You'll be a rocking and a rolling soon F G7 C Impressing the girls picking hot licks and all that jazz
F Ah I bought me a guitar a year ago G7 C Learned how to play in a day or so F And all around town it was well understood G7 C That I was knocking 'em out like Johnny B Goode F G7 C Hot licks showing off ah number one
F Yeah I practiced all day and up into the night G7 C My papa's hair was turning white F Cause he didn't like rock'n roll G7 C He said you can stay boy but that's gotta go F G7 C He's a square he just didn't dig me at all
F So I took my guitar picks and all G7 C Bid farewell to my poor ol' pa F Split for Memphis where they say y'all G7 C Them swinging cats are having a ball F G7 C Sessions hot licks and all they dig me
F I was rocking and a bopping and I was getting the breaks G7 C The girls all said that I have what it takes F When up stepped a man with big cigar G7 C He said come here cat I'm gonna make you a star F G7 C I'll put you on bandstand buy you a Cadillac sign here kid
F I signed my name and became a star G7 C Having a ball with my guitar F Driving a big long Cadillac G7 C And fighting the girls off of my back F G7 C They just kept a coming screaming yeah they liked it
F So I picked my guitar with a great big grin G7 C And the money just kept on pouring in F N.C. But then one day my Uncle Sam he said (knock knock) here I am F C Uncle Sam needs you boy I'm a gonna cut your hair off
Ah take this rifle kid give me that guitar yeah
