[PIANO INTRO]
C - G/B Am
F - C/E Dm
F D7/F# Dm7/G - G7 -


[VERSE 1]
C   G/B        Am
All we've been given, by
Dm7                C/E
those who came before, the
Am         Dm7
dream of a nation, where
F                 G
freedom would endure, the
F        G          Am7
work and prayers of centuries, have
Dm7                E7
brought us to this day
Dm7               C/E
What shall be our legacy? What
F                 G7
will our children say?


[CHORUS]
         C  G/B Am7
Let them say of me, I was
Dm7     C/E
one who believed, in
Am          Dm7
sharing the blessings
Fm7   G7
I received, let me
C      G/B  Am
know in my heart, when my
Dm7      E7
days are through
 Dm  C/E  F  Fm7/D
America America, I
Dm7/G   G7      C (piano: C major arpeggio into bridge)
gave my best to you

[VERSE 2]
C    G/B  Am7
Each generation from the 
Dm7               C/E
plains to distant shore with the
Am7                  Dm
gifts that they were given, were
   F                 G
determined to leave more
C       G/B       Am7
Battles fought together, acts of
Dm7               E/G#
conscience fought alone
Dm7           C/E
these are the seeds from which
  F         G7
America has grown


[CHORUS]
         C Cm7/B Am
Let them say of me, I was
Dm7        C/E
one who believed, in
Am7         Dm7
sharing the blessings that
Fm7   G7
I received, let me
C    G/B   Am
know in my heart, when my
Dm7      E
days are through
Dm7  C/E  F  Dm
America America, I

For those who think they
Dm7             C/E
have nothing to share, who
Am            C/G
fear in their hearts, there
F          G7
is no hero there, know each
Fm7   Dm7/G  Am
quiet act of dignity is
Dm7        E/G#
that which fortifies the
Dm7       C/E 
soul of a nation 
F               G7
that will never die


[CHORUS]
         C  G/B Am
Let them say of me, I was
Dm7     C/E
one who believed in
Am7         Dm
sharing the blessings
F     G7
I received, let me
C/E Cm7/B  Am7
know in my heart, when my
Dm       E/G#
days are through
 Dm7 C/E  F  Dm7
America America, I
Dm7/G   G7      Am      C/G
gave my best to you...

 Dm  C/E  F  D7/F#
America (PIANO finishes 2nd "America"), I
