Manzanar

Capo on 3rd fret
	  		



Intro: G 

verse 1 

He said, my name is Nakashima 
          C          G 
And I'm a proud American 
       C         G 
I came here in '24 
        Am            D 
From my homeland in Japan 


verse 2 
      G 
And I picked your grapes and oranges 
           C               G 
Saved some money, bought a store 
      C              G 
Until Nineteen Forty-Two 
      Am              D 
Pearl Harbour and the war 


verse 3 
       G 
Came those relocation orders 
              C                     G 
They took our house, the store, the car 
          C               G 
Then they drove us to the desert 
     Am                D 
To a place called Manzanar 


verse 4 
       G 
The Spanish word for "apple orchard" 
          C            G 
Though we saw no apple trees 
     C              G 
Only rows of prison barracks 
     Am                D 
With barbed wire boundaries

Verse 5 Fifty years, they've all but vanished C G And now I am an old man C G And I don't regret the day Am D That I came here from Japan Verse 6 G But on moonlit winter nights C G I often wish upon a star C G That I'd forget the shame and sorrow Am D That I felt at Manzanar
