American Woman

Written by Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings,
Jim Kale and Garry Peterson



American Woman, stay away from me
American Woman, mama let me be
Don't come a hanging around my door
I don't wanna see your face no more
I got more important things to do
Than spend my time growing old with you
Now Woman, I said stay away
American Woman, listen what I say...


American Woman, get away from me
American Woman, mama let me be
Don't come a knocking around my door
Don't wanna see your shadow no more
Coloured lights can hypnotize
Sparkle someone else's eyes
Now Woman, I said get away
American Woman, listen what I say...


American Woman, said get away
American Woman, listen what I say
Don't come a hanging around my door
Don't wanna see your face no more
I don't need your war machines
I don't need your ghetto scenes
Coloured lights can hypnotize
Sparkle someone else's eyes
Now Woman, get away from me
American Woman, mama let me be

Go, gotta get away, gotta get away now go, go, go
I'm gonna leave you woman
Gonna leave you woman
Bye-bye Bye-bye Bye-bye Bye-bye
You're no good for me
I'm no good for you
Gonna look you right in the eye
Tell you what I'm gonna do
You know I'm gonna leave
You know I'm gonna go
You know I'm gonna leave
You know I'm gonna go woman
I'm gonna leave you woman
Good bye American Woman
Good bye American woman...
