[Badd11] [Aadd9/E] [E]  
[E]You called all the way from America[Aadd9/E]
Said "Hang onto love girl"[E]
But the we[Aadd9/E]eks and the months and the years[Badd11]
[E]Passed by...[Aadd9/E]
And my eyes couldn't stand [E]the strain
Of [Aadd9/E]that promised love[Badd11]
[E]All the way from America[Aadd9/E] [E] [Aadd9/E]
[E]All the way from America[Aadd9/E] [E] [Aadd9/E]
You called al[E]l the way from Amer[Aadd9/E]ica
Said I'll soon be home girl[E]
And [Aadd9/E]years and the tears and the fe[Badd11]ars,
[E]Passed by...[Aadd9/E]
And my heart couldn't stand [E]the pain
of [Aadd9/E]that promised love[Badd11]
[E]All the way from America[Aadd9/E] [E] [Aadd9/E]
[E]All the way from America[Aadd9/E] [E] [Aadd9/E]

For you to knock at my door[E]
But the [Aadd9/E]knock never came
and no ri[Badd11]ng
[E]At all....[Aadd9/E]
And now I sit and wonder[E] why
You [Aadd9/E]made that firs[Badd11]t call
[E]All the way way from Ame[Aadd9/E]rica
I don't believe I'll stay h[Badd11]ere
[E]I don't think I want to wait her[Aadd9/E]e anymore[Badd11]
[Aadd9/E]And if you search for me baby[Badd11]
[E]Better bring some more love t[Aadd9/E]han you decla[Badd11]red
[E]All the way from America[Aadd9/E] [E] [Badd11] [Aadd9/E]
[E]All the way from America[Aadd9/E] [E] [Aadd9/E]
[Aadd9/E] [E] [Aadd9/E] [E] [Aadd9/E]  
And my heart couldn't stand [E]the pain
of [Aadd9/E]that promised love[Badd11]
[E]All the way from America[Aadd9/E] [E] [Badd11] [Aadd9/E]
[E]All the way from America[Aadd9/E] [E] [Aadd9/E]
