American Tune

	  		 C         F    C    Dm  C  G  E 
Many's the time I've been mistaken, 
    Am    E7    Am                
And many times confuse.  
C             F C   Dm   C  G  E 
Yes, and I've often felt forsaken,  
    Am    E7      Am                
And certainly misused.  
             F   G         F   C 
Oh, but I'm alright, I'm alright,  
          F     G    E      E7                
I'm just weary to my bones.  
F          G                   C      G    D     G 
Still, you don't expect to be bright and bonvivant,  
    F  C   G       E   Dm  C   G         C 
So far away from home, So far away from home 
C               F      C   Dm  C  G  E 
I don't know a soul whose not been battered, 
               Am         E7        Am                
I don't have a friend who feels at ease, 
C               F      C      Dm  C  G  E 
I don't  know a dream whose not been shattered, 
    Am    E7       Am                
Or driven to its knees. 
             F   G          F    C 
Oh, but It's alright, It's alright,  
         F      G       E      E7                
For we lived so well so long. 
F       G                   C   G       D       G                
Still when I think of the road we're traveling on, 
G  F   C  G          E                
I wonder what's gone wrong.  
 Dm                C         G            C                
I can't help it; I wonder what has gone wrong 
  C                
And I dream I was dying,  
                   G             Am 
I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly, 
                  G          F          C    G               
And looking back down at me smiled reassuringly. 
                     C                
And I dreamed I was flying, 
               G                  Am 
And high up above my eyes could clearly see 
               G                
The Statue of Liberty, 
    F    C      G 
Sailing away to sea, 
                     C                
And I dreamed I was flying. 
 
C               F   C    Dm        C    G    E 
We come on the ship they call the Mayflower,  
               Am         E7        Am          
We come on the ship that sailed the moon. 
C               F C  Dm    C  G     E
We come in the age's most uncertain hours, 
      Am    E7         Am          
And sing the American Tune. 
             F   G          F    C 
Oh, and it's alright, it's alright,  
        F     G     E      E7    
You can be forever blessed. 
F        G                C    G   D       G        
Still tomorrow's gonna be another working day, 
          F    C   G        E        
And I'm trying to get some rest, 
     Dm     C         G           C 
That's all I'm trying, to get some rest.
