Sail Away  Randy Newman

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












[D] In A-[Bm7]merica you'll get [E7sus]food to eat.
[A7] Won't have to run through the jungle,
And [D]scuff up your feet.
[D] You'll just [Bm7]sing about Jesus,
And drink [E7sus]wine all day;
[A7] It's great to be an American.[D]


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

Chorus 1:

Sail a-[D]way, [Dsus]
Sail a-[G]way, [Gsus4]
We will [D]cross the mighty [Bm7]ocean,
Into Charleston [E7]Bay. [G/A]

Sail a-[D]way, [Dsus]
Sail a-[G]way, [Gsus4]
We will [D]cross the [Bm7]mighty [E7]ocean,
Into [G/A]Charleston [D]Bay.[Bm7]     [E7sus]

Verse 2:

[D] In A-[Bm7]merica every [E7sus]man is free,
[A7] To take care of his home,
And his [D]family.
[D] You'll be as [Bm7]happy,
As a monkey in a [E7sus]monkey tree;
[A7] You're all gonna [D]be an American.
[D] Be an American.

Chorus 2:

Sail a-[D]way, [Dsus]
Sail a-[G]way, [Gsus4]
We will [D]cross the mighty [Bm7]ocean,
Into Charleston [E7]Bay. [G/A]

Sail a-[D]way, [Dsus]
Sail a-[G]way, [Gsus4]
We will [D]cross the [Bm7]mighty [E7]ocean,
Into [G/A]Charleston [D]Bay.[Bm7]     [E7sus]
