Sail Away

Randy Newman

---------------................


 DBm7E7sus
  In A-merica you'll get food to eat.
 A7
  Won't have to run through the jungle,
 D
And scuff up your feet.
 DBm7
  You'll just sing about Jesus,
 E7sus
And drink wine all day;
 A7D
  It's great to be an American. 

 DBm7
  Ain't no lions or tigers,
 E7sus
Ain't no mamba snake,
 A7
  Just the sweet watermelon,
 D
And the buckwheat cake.
 Bm7
  Everybody is as happy,
 E7sus
As a man can be,
 A7
  Climb aboard little wog;
 D
Sail a-way with me.

Chorus 1:

 DDsus
Sail a-way,  
 GGsus4
Sail a-way,  
 DBm7
We will cross the mighty ocean,
 E7G/A
Into Charleston Bay.  

 DDsus
Sail a-way,  
 GGsus4
Sail a-way,  
 DBm7E7
We will cross the mighty ocean,
 G/ADBm7E7sus
Into Charleston Bay.      

Verse 2:

 DBm7E7sus
  In A-merica every man is free,
 A7
  To take care of his home,
 D
And his family.
 DBm7
  You'll be as happy,
 E7sus
As a monkey in a monkey tree;
 A7D
  You're all gonna be an American.
 D
  Be an American.

Chorus 2:

 DDsus
Sail a-way,  
 GGsus4
Sail a-way,  
 DBm7
We will cross the mighty ocean,
 E7G/A
Into Charleston Bay.  

 DDsus
Sail a-way,  
 GGsus4
Sail a-way,  
 DBm7E7
We will cross the mighty ocean,
 G/ADBm7E7sus
Into Charleston Bay.
