(This song is really just a repeat of the chord progression below.)
Intro: G D G, G C D, G C G, G C D G (x3)
What i[G]s this land of America, so m[D]any travel t[G]here
I'm go[G]ing now while I'm still young, my dar[C]ling meet me th[D]ere
Wi[G]sh me luck my lovely, I'll send f[C]or you when I c[G]an
And w[G]e'll make our ho[C]me in the A[D]merican l[G]and[G] [C] [D] [G]
Over t[G]here all the woman wear silk and s[D]atin to their k[G]nees
And ch[G]ildren dear, the sweets, I hear, are gr[C]owing on the t[D]rees
Go[G]ld comes rushing out the river st[C]raight into your ha[G]nds
If you m[G]ake your h[C]ome in the Am[D]erican la[G]nd[G] [C] [D] [G]
There's di[G]amonds in the sidewalks, there's gu[D]tters lined in s[G]ong
D[G]ear I hear that beer flows through the f[C]aucets all night l[D]ong
There's tr[G]easure for the taking, for a[C]ny hard working m[G]an
Who will m[G]ake his h[C]ome in the A[D]merican l[G]and[G] [C] [D] [G]
G D G, G C D, G C G, G C D G
I d[G]ocked at Ellis Island in a c[D]ity of light and s[G]pire
I wa[G]ndered to the valley of r[C]ed-hot steel and f[D]ire
We m[G]ade the steel that built the cities with the s[C]weat of our two h[G]ands
And I m[G]ade my ho[C]me in the A[D]merican l[G]and[G] [C] [D] [G]
There's di[G]amonds in the sidewalk, there's g[D]utters lined in s[G]ong
D[G]ear I hear that beer flows through the fa[C]ucets all night l[D]ong
There's t[G]reasure for the taking, for a[C]ny hard working m[G]an
Who will m[G]ake his ho[C]me in the A[D]merican l[G]and[G] [C] [D] [G]
G D G, G C D, G C G, G C D G
The Mc[G]Nicholas, the Posalski's, the S[D]miths, Zerillis t[G]oo
The Bl[G]acks, the Irish, Italians, the Ge[C]rmans and the J[D]ews
Th[G]e Puerto Ricans, illegals, the Asians, A[C]rabs miles from h[G]ome
C[G]ome across the w[C]ater with a f[D]ire down be[G]low
They d[G]ied building the railroads, wo[D]rked to bones and s[G]kin
They d[G]ied in the fields and factories, names s[C]cattered in the w[D]ind
They d[G]ied to get here a hundred years a[C]go, they're dyin' [G]now
The h[G]ands that built the co[C]untry we're all t[D]rying to keep d[G]own
There's di[G]amonds in the sidewalk, there's g[D]utters lined in s[G]ong
[G]Dear I hear that beer flows through the f[C]aucets all night l[D]ong
There's t[G]reasure for the taking, for a[C]ny hard working [G]man
Who will m[G]ake his ho[C]me in the A[D]merican l[G]and?
Who will m[G]ake his ho[C]me in the A[D]merican l[G]and?
Who will m[G]ake his ho[C]me in the A[D]merican l[G]and?
G D G, G C D, G C G, G C D G
G D G, G C D, G C G, G C D G
G C D G, (slow down) G C D G
