Intro.:  |3/4(D) / (A)|4/4(D) / / / |3/4(D) / (A)|4/4(G) / / /

Was the (D)captain of the team his (A)senior (D)year
In his (D)eyes on his helmet he (A)had no (G) fear
(G)Down by six, ball (C)on the (G)ten
Said, "(D)Huddle up, boys, wefve got a (A)game to (D)win"

He (D)snapped the ball, he looked (A)left and (D) right
No-(D)body was open so he (A)tucked in (G) tight
And with (G)four of them boys hanging (C)on to (G)him
The (D)clock ran out as he (A)ran it (D) in

(Chorus)
And the (D)whole (C)town (G)cheered, and his mama (D)cried
And they (D)rushed (C)down (G)field, and they raised him (A)high
Got his (D)picture in the paper and the (A)headline (G) read
"(Bm)All-American (A)Comeback (D) Kid"

He was re-(D)created by the best schools (A)in the (D)land
He de-(D)cided he would sign with his (A)Uncle  (G) Sam
Kissed his (G)mama goodbye in their (C)living (G)room
Said, "(D)Dad, donft worry, I'll (A)be home (D) soon"

(Chorus)
And the (D)whole (C)town (G)cheered, and his mama (D)cried
And they (D)lined (C)the (G)street just to say good-(A)bye
Got his (D)picture in the paper and the (C)headline (G) read
"(Bm)Come Back All-A-(A)merican (D) Kid"

(D)Three tours of duty and a (A)silver (D)star
(D)Brought him back home with his (A)battle (G) scars
He stepped (G)off the plane in his (C)combat (G) boots
He sa-(D)luted the red, the (A)white and (D) blue

(Chorus)
And the (D)whole (C)town (G)cheered, and his mama (D)cried
Another (D)home-(C)town (G)boy made it home a-(A)live
Got his (D)picture in the paper and the (C)headline (G) read
"(Bm)Welcome Back All-A-(A)merican (D) Kid"
