Born in the USA has two chords, I'm afraid. Neutral

But it has a 3-note melody, which is another interesting category.
It's the pentatonic-major companion to the "Rock On" pentatonic-minor 3-note melody. geek

This might look like a random-out-of-the-clear-blue comment, but it's actually in answer to a question from SJ.

Chord changes are for white college boys--not for Jessie Mae. afro

The original had chord changes (must have been Ry Cooder's idea to do it with no chords):

Also, a one-note melody with variations.

Leonard Bursnsten said that the original rain-God prayer (which predated the 2-note rain-God prayer) had only one note, before the Beethoven of the troglodytes added the flatted 3rd for heightened effect.
