Woke Up In America

Capo on 1st fret
	  		

 

  

Intro G C (3x) 

verse 1 

G                                           C 
I was born on a rock in the middle of the ocean 
G                                     C 
Where the wind's so rough it can carry you to London 
  Am                                              C 
It's a new found land with an old soul reaching 
    G    C 
For the light of day 

verse 2 

  G                                    C 
My parents gave me a life full of dreams 
   G                                                  C 
Yeah they gave me a heart to endure most anything 
   Am                                      C 
But everyone gets a broken pair of wi ngs 
                                               G 
And if you try to fly you'll fail 
               D                                         
But a voice said "Lift up your head" 
             Em                         C  
And my heart burst out of my chest 

tabchorus
G C I woke up in America for the love of God G C I woke up in America for something bigger than myself Em C More than fireworks and fanfare G D More than a star-spangled banner Em C You're still beautiful America
tab
verse 3 G C Yeah its late in the night look in the mirror G C Count the lines on my face and wonder how they got there Am C Oh but every one's a story of how grace appeared G And carried me through the day D And the voice said, "this land ain't dead" Em C You still got better days up ahead
tabchorus
G C I woke up in America for the love of God G C I woke up in America for something bigger than myself Em C More than fireworks and fanfare G D More than a star-spangled banner Em C You're still beautiful America

Solo Em C G D (2x) Bridge C I've seen the horizon ablaze in Arizona G D Shoreline shoutin' over California C Moonlight dancin' over the Dakotas G D It breaks your heart, it's so beautiful C Lady Liberty, she leaves the light on G D From the west side all the way to Long Island C Carolina Coast to the Rocky Mountains G D The sun is shining over me
tabchorus
G C I woke up in America for the love of God G C I woke up in America for something bigger than myself Em C More than wealth or depression G D More than a red or blue nation Em C Here in our hells and our heaven G D You're still beautiful America G C You're beautiful America G C G You're beautiful America
