Verse:
Ab
Cigarettes and tiny liquor bottles, 
         Cm
Just what you’d expect inside her new Balenciaga.
Ab                 
Bad romance, turned dreams into an empire.
     Cm
Self-made success now she rose with Rockafellas.

Pre-Chorus:
   Bb                         Cm
Survival of the richest, the city’s ours until the fall.
        Bb                              Cm 
They're Monaco and Hampton’s bound but we don’t feel like outsiders at all.

Chorus:
Ab                    Cm
 We are the new Americana,
Bb                  Cm
 high on legal marijuana,
Ab                        Cm
 raised on Biggie and Nirvana,
Bb                    Cm
 we are the new Americana.

Verse:
Ab                      Cm
Young James Dean, some say he looks just like his father,
Ab             Cm 
but he could never love somebody’s daughter.
Ab                   Cm 
Football team loved more than just the game
      Ab               Cm
so he vowed to be his husband at the alter.

Pre-Chorus:
   Bb                         Cm
Survival of the richest, the city’s ours until the fall.
        Bb                              Cm 
They’re Monaco and Hampton’s bound but we don’t feel like outsiders at all.

Chorus:
Ab                    Cm
We are the new Americana,
Bb                  Cm
high on legal marijuana,
Ab                        Cm
raised on Biggie and Nirvana,
Bb                    Cm
we are the new Americana.

Bridge:
Ab                  Cm
We know very well who we are,
Bb                  Cm
so we hold it down when summer starts.
Ab                  Cm
What kind of dough have you been spending?
Bb                      Cm 
What kind of bubblegum have you been blowing lately?

Chorus:
Ab                    Cm
We are the new Americana,
Bb                  Cm
high on legal marijuana,
Ab                        Cm
raised on Biggie and Nirvana,
Bb                    Cm
we are the new Americana.
Ab                    Cm
We are the new Americana -we know very well-,
Bb                  Cm
high on legal marijuana -who we are-,
Ab                        Cm
raised on Biggie and Nirvana -so we hold it down-,
Bb                    Cm                Ab 
we are the new Americana.

  1. Hi can you do Roman Holiday by Halsey?

  2. strum pattern?

  3. sinclair child

    for kicks and giggles to add a little more variation (on -3), I add B7 on the third verse between Am and G.

  4. -1 with capo one first fret sounds pretty spot on (and is easier!)

  5. EdTheUkulele

    Ed thinks the song sounds best as is!

  6. Does anyone know the strum pattern?? if so please write it like, d-d-udu style because that’s the only thing I know how to read right now

  7. LouMoonboy

    I think -3 is the best

  8. -3 is the easiest

  9. hey! so- if you do Ab-Fm-Cm, it sounds more accurate than just Ab-Cm!

  10. I personally think -1 is the best!

  11. DanKing409

    – 1 is fine

  12. Twentyonepilots

    Ya definitely-3

  13. vinylviolin

    If you bar on the third fret for the C, E, and A strings for the Ab chord, it’s much easier.

  14. -3 is easiest
