                Let us be lovers, we'll marry our fortunes together
 CCmaj7Am
                I've got some real-estate here in my bag
 EmAEmA
                So we bought a pack of cigaretts, and Mrs. Wagner pies
 GCGABCBAm
                And walked off to look for America
 CBAmGF
                Cathy I said as we boarded the Greyhound in Pittsburg
 CCmaj7Am
                Michigan seems like a dream to me now
 G
                It took me four days to hitch-hike from Saganaw
 DGDCmaj7
                I've gone to look for America
 Cmaj7D
                Laughing on the bus, playing games with the faces
 Cmaj7D
                She said the man in the gaberdine suit was a spy
 GF#EmADFmaj7
                I said be careful his bowtie is really a camera
 CCmaj7AmGF
                Toss me a cigarette I think there's one in my raincoat
 CCmaj7Am
                We smoked the last one an hour ago
 GAEmA
                So I looked at the scenery, and she read her magazine
 GCGABCBAm
                An the moon rose over an open field
 CCmaj7AmGF
                Cathy I'm lost, I said, though I knew she was sleeping
 CCmaj7Am
                I'm empty and aching and I don't know why
 G
                Counting the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike
 DGDCmaj7
                They've all gone to look for America
 DGDCmaj7
                They've all gone to look for America
 DGDCmaj7
                They've all gone to look for America

NOTE: At the end of each C C/B Am C/G F chord progression, there
is a small but important extra note. While fingering the F chord
(1 3 3 2 1 1), quickly hammer on and then pull off the sus note
(1 3 3 3 1 1). Do this twice each time. Listen to the record to
get a better idea of what I mean.
