             I.  "I love America,"
                 E    F    E
                 says John Wayne.
                 D                   F
                 "there is something out there
                 D      E         F       E
                 in the mountains and the plains,
                     G              F   E       G   F   E
                 the rivers and the o - cean."
                     F  G                riff twice
                 and I    should take it in.


                       Am             C  Am
            II.  but I have no paid vacation,
                    E        F      E
                 no airplane to get on,
                 D                 F    D
                 just a John Wayne interview
                     E       F      E
                 I'm reading in the john.
                 G              F    E    G   F   E
                 but I'd travel very far
                      F   G          riff twice
                 if I were   a movie star.

           III.  just give me a vacation
                 E     F        E
                 and a boarding pass.
                 D                  F     D
                 show me where John Wayne lives,
                      E        F      E
                 I'll kick him in the ass.
                     G                   F       E     G   F   E
                 but I'll just sing this song instead
                        F    G                riff twice
                 'cause he's    already dead.
