Calling America

	  		
Intro:  Dm 
  

verse 1 

Since I was a refugee who lived outside of town 
Bb                        C 
Family in a barrio shack, better than rundown 
Dm 
Had a friend from America, helped out, we took him in 
Bb                               C                        Dm 
Like my brother, he disappeared, said he was with him, oh yeah 


verse 2 

There we were, far out at sea and somehow we got lost 
Bb                            C 
Then we landed hard on shore, there upon the rocks 
      Dm 
While celebration shook the air, we turned to hear some shots 
Bb                                 C                            Bb 
Ones who'd been here far too long, think they lost the plot, oh yeah 


Pre-Chorus 

       C 
Here I go again 
Dm             C             Bb 
Leaving things out while I'm leaving things in 
                    C 
Where, where should I begin 
Dm                 A 
Feeling so full of feeling so thin, yeah 

tabchorus
Dm C Dm (Calling America) Bb Man, I know you're out there C Sister, are you free there Dm C Dm (Calling America) Bb C Dm This thing they call America, really is a dream, oh yeah

verse 3 Then I stood there, face to face, with a girl that I once knew Bb C She was dressed in gingham there in colours red, white and blue Dm The more I spoke, the less she heard, then she slipped away Bb C Bb I just stood there sinking, far beneath the waves, oh yeah Pre-Chorus C Here we go again Dm C Bb Leaving things out while we're leaving things in C Where, where should we begin Dm A Feeling so full of feeling so thin, yeah Chorus Dm C Dm (Calling America) Bb Man, I know you're out there C Sister, are you free there Dm C Dm (Calling America) Bb C Dm This thing they call America, really is a dream, oh yeah
