Intro: Db   Db   Db   Db

Verse:
         Db
She grew up on the side of the road
                        Bbm7
Where the church bells ring and strong love grows
            Gb                 Ebm7
She grew up good, She grew up slow
               Db
Like American honey


            Db
Steady as a preacher, free as a weed
                     Bbm7
Couldn't wait to get going but wasn't quite ready to leave
      Gb                     Ebm7
So innocent, pure and sweet
         Db
American honey

Chorus: 
          Gb          Db               Bbm         Ab 
There's a wild, wild whisper blowin' in the wind
        Gb      Db            Ab 
Callin' out my name like a long lost friend
      Gb          Db            Bbm       Ab 
Oh, I miss those days as the years go by
      Gb
Oh, nothin' sweeter than summertime
           Db
And American honey

Verse:
                   Db
Get caught in the race of this crazy life
                   Bbm7
Tryin' to be everything can make you lose your mind
      Gb                  Ebm7
I just wanna go back in time
           Db
To American honey

Chorus: 
          Gb          Db               Bbm         Ab 
There's a wild, wild whisper blowin' in the wind
        Gb      Db            Ab 
Callin' out my name like a long lost friend
      Gb          Db            Bbm       Ab 
Oh, I miss those days as the years go by
      Gb
Oh, nothin' sweeter than summertime
           Db
And American honey

Bridge:
         Bbm  Ab    Gb
Gone for so long now
               Gb     Db     Ebm7
I gotta get back to her somehow
          Db
To American honey

Interlude: Gb   Db   Bbm   Ab   Gb   Db   Ab 

Chorus: 
          Gb          Db               Bbm         Ab 
There's a wild, wild whisper blowin' in the wind
        Gb      Db            Ab
Callin' out my name like a long lost friend
      Gb          Db            Bbm       Ab 
Oh, I miss those days as the years go by
      Gb
Oh, nothin' sweeter than summertime
           Db
And American honey
           Db
And American honey
