America  Simon & Garfunkle

                [C]Let us be [Bm]lovers, we'll [Am]marry our [G]fortunes to[F]gether
                [C]I've got some [Bm]real-estate [Am]here in my bag
                [Em]So we bought a pack of [A]cigaretts, and [Em]Mrs. Wagner [A]pies
                And [G]walked [C]off to [G]look [A]for[B] A[C]me[B]ri[Am]ca
                [C]Cathy I [B]said as we [Am]boarded the [G]Greyhound in [F]Pittsburg
                [C]Michigan [B]seems like a [Am]dream to me now
                [G]It took me four days to hitch-hike from Saganaw
                [D]I've [G]gone to [D]look for A[Cmaj7]merica
                [Cmaj7]Laughing on the bus, playing [D]games with the faces
                [Cmaj7]She said the man in the gaberdine suit was a [D]spy
                [G]I said be [F#]careful his [Em]bowtie is [A]really a [D]camera [Fmaj7]
                [C]Toss me a [B]cigarette [Am]I think there's [G]one in my [F]raincoat
                [C]We smoked the l[B]ast one an [Am]hour ago
                [G]So I looked at the [A]scenery,[Em] and she read her maga[A]zine
                An the [G]moon [D]rose [G]ov[A]er [B]an [CB]ope[Am]n field
                [C]Cathy I'm [B]lost, I [Am]said, though I [G]knew she was [F]sleeping
                I'm [C]empty and [B]aching and [Am]I don't know why
                [G]Counting the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike
                They've [D]all [G]gone to [D]look for [Cmaj7]America
                They've [D]all [G]gone to [D]look for [Cmaj7]America
                They've [D]all [G]gone to [D]look for [Cmaj7]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.
