Intro: Gb   Gb-Db-Ebm   Ebm

Verse 1:
  Gb                    Bbm
I hopped off the plane at LAX
Ebm                          Db
with a dream and my cardigan
  Gb                   Bbm         Ebm
welcome to the land of fame excess,
                    Db
am I gonna fit in?

  Gb                      Bbm              Ebm
Jumped in the cab, Here I am for the first time
                                    Db
Look to the right and I see the Hollywood sign

    Gb         Bbm    Ebm
This is all so crazy
                        Db
Everybody seems so famous

Pre-Chorus:
Gb                       Bbm               Ebm
My tummys turnin and I'm feelin kinda home sick
                             Db
Too much pressure and I'm nervous,
                Gb                     Bbm    Ebm
That's when the taxi man turned on the radio
- no chord -
and a Jay Z song was on
and the Jay Z song was on
and the Jay Z song was on

Chorus:
            Gb
So I put my hands up
        Bbm
They’re playing my song,
    Ebm                      Db
And the butterflys fly away
Gb                   Bbm  Ebm
Noddin’ my head like yea
                        Db
Movin my hips like yea
Gb
I got my hands up,
        Bbm
They’re playin my song
Ebm                   Db
I know im gonna be ok
Gb Bbm  Ebm                       Db
Yeaaaa,   It's a party in the USA
Yeaaaa,   It's a party in the USA

Verse 2 - same as first -:
Get to the club in my taxi cab everybody's looking at me now
Like who's that chick that's rocking kicks?
She's gotta be from out of town

So hard with my girls not around me
It's definitely not a Nashville party
'Cause all I see are stilettos, I guess I never got the memo

Pre-Chorus:
Gb                       Bbm               Ebm
My tummys turnin and I'm feelin kinda home sick
                             Db
Too much pressure and I'm nervous,
                Gb                     Bbm    Ebm
That's when the taxi man turned on the radio
- no chord -
and a Britney song was on
and the Britney song was on
and the Britney song was on

Chorus:
            Gb

Bbm                    Ebm
Feel like hoppin' on a flight - on a flight -
Bbm                    Abm
Back to my hometown tonight - town tonight -
Bbm                    Ebm
Something stops me everytime - everytime -
    B                              Db
The DJ plays my song and I feel alright
