Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Americana  Moe Bandy

[D]I’ve traveled [A]all around this [D]country
[D]In my time I [A]thought I’d seen it [D]all
But to[G]day I took a [A]detour down a [Bm]backroad [Bm/A]
Through a [E7]little town whose name I can’t [A]recall
There were [D]old men on [A]benches playin’ [D]checkers
[D]Children playin’ [A]hopscotch on the [D]square
And [G]high above a [A]statue of an [Bm]unknown [G]soldier
Old [D]Glory was [A]waving in the [D]air
[Bm]Suddenly I [G]realized what [D]I’d too long forgotten
A [Bm]chill rose up like [G]mountains on my [A]skin
Over[Bm]come with the [G]feelin’, [D]I knew I was [G]seein’
[D]America all [A]over aga[D]in


Chorus:
[D][G]mer-i[A]cana
[G]Pictures of a [A]people proud and [D]free
[D][Bm]m-eri[G]cana, [E7]I’ll keep [A]holdin’ to the [Bm]dream [Bm/A]
You’re [G]still what [A]livin’ means to [D]me


I knew to stop would throw me off my schedule
But I parked around behind the Five and Dime
There’s something bout a small town in the summer
Like a Norman Rockwell picture back in time
Kids were courtin’ at the Rexall soda fountain
Like we did before they built the shoppin mall
I saw so many reasons why I love this country
You know some things never really change at all
As I left the 2 lane road and pulled back on that superhighway
I thought of what I’d seen back in that town
And it hit me like a freight train
That a stones throw from the fast lane, America is still safe and sound
