[Intro]
D    F#m    Em    A    D    F#m    Em    A

[Verse 1]
   D             
If tomorrow all the things were gone
    G
I'd worked for all my life,
      C
And I had to start again
             Em              A
With just my family by my side
D             
  I'd thank my lucky stars
Em   Bm            
to be livin' here today.
          Em                    
Cause the flag still stands for freedom
         Bm                      G
And they can't take that away.

[Chorus]
        A
And I'm proud to be an American
         G                D
Where at least I know I'm free
      A
And I won't forget the men who died
    G                  D
Who gave that right to me
             Bm       D                 G                D
And I gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today
            G                D
Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land
    G         A D
God bless the USA

[Interlude]
F#m    Em    A    D    F#m    Em    A

[Verse 2]
         D            
From the lakes of Minnesota
       G 
To the hills of Tennessee
 C
Across the plains of Texas
     Em             A
From sea to shining sea
     D               
From Detroit down to Houston
Em     Bm
    And New York to LA
             Em             
Well there's pride in every American heart
        Bm                       G
And its time we stand and say

[Chorus] 
         A
That I'm proud to be an American
         G                D
Where at least I know I'm free
      A
And I won't forget the men who died
    G                  D
Who gave that right to me
             Bm       D                 G              D
And I gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today
            G                D
Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land
    G         A   Bm  G
God bless the USA
(x2)

[Outro]
        A
And I'm proud to be an American
         G                D
Where at least I know I'm free
      A
And I won't forget the men who died
    G                  D
Who gave that right to me
             Bm       D                 G                D
And I gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today
            G                D
Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land
    G         A D
God bless the USA
