Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


America  Tracy Chapman

There was l[C#m]and to take
And p[A]eople to kill
Wh[E]ile you were conquering Am[B]erica
You s[C#m]erved yourself
[A]Did God's will
Wh[E]ile you were conquering Am[B]erica


[C#m]        [A]      [E]      [B]                 
The gh[C#m]ost of Columbus
[A]Haunts this world
'Cause y[E]ou're still conquering Am[B]erica
The m[C#m]eek won't survive
Or inh[A]erit the earth
'Cause y[E]ou're still conquering Am[B]erica
[C#m](Uh!)   A[A]merica,    [E](uh!)   A[B]merica,
[C#m](Uh!)   A[A]merica,    [E](uh!)    [B]
You f[C#m]ound bodies to serve
Subm[A]it and degrade
Wh[E]ile you were conquering Am[B]erica
Made us s[C#m]oldiers and junkies
Pr[A]isoners and slaves
Wh[E]ile you were conquering Am[B]erica
Chorus...


You h[C#m]ands are at my throat
My b[A]ack's against the wall
Because y[E]ou're still conquering Am[B]erica
We're s[C#m]ick and tired
[A]Hungry and poor
'Cause y[E]ou're still conquering Am[B]erica
C#m A E B (x2)


You b[C#m]omb the very ground
That f[A]eeds your own babies
[E]You're still conquering A[B]merica
Your s[C#m]ons and your daughters
May n[A]ever sing your praises
Wh[E]ile you're conquering Am[B]erica
Chorus...


[C#m]I see you eyes
Seek a d[A]istant shore
Wh[E]ile you're conquering Amer[B]ica
Taking r[C#m]ockets to the moon
Trying to f[A]ind a new world
And y[E]ou're still conquering Am[B]erica
Chorus...


The gh[C#m]ost of Columbus
[A]Haunts this world
'Cause y[E]ou're still conquering Am[B]erica
[C#m]You're still conquering A[A]merica
[E]You're still conquering A[B]merica
[C#m]        [A]      [E]      [B]                 
Uh!
