[Intro] 
 G D G - G D G

[Verse]
 G		             C
When I was a child I heard music
 G 				       D
And I knew that it was coming from me too
 G   			     	          C
Now everywhere I go I hear some kind of music
 G	           	  D              G
I don't know where it's coming from, do you?

 G			             C
And I used to sit by the dim radio window
 G			        D
Waiting for the magic hour to start
 G				   C
You can take the heart out of my country
 G		      D	               G
You can't take the country out of my heart

 G		                              C
Well there comes a time when we all have to travel
 G  				   D
Some to look for home and some to hide
 G					       C
There was a war at home and a war across the ocean
 G		D               G
Families were split from the inside

 G				               C
And we stood there holding hands, signs and candles
 G	               		      D
But soon enough our hands all had to part
 G			              C
You can take the heart out of this country
 G                        D                  G
But you can't take the country out of your heart

 G				           C
Well, it's more than cities, fields and mountains
 G			             D
More than a place to view the farming man
 G			               C
And everyday I want to thank all the angels
 G	                  D                    G
That it's more than its congress and its president

 G 	 		             C
And I long to hear the music of its choir
 G				          D
When everyone shall stand and sing their part
 G			           C
And we can keep the heart in our country
 G		       D	     G
And we can keep the country in our heart
 G		       D             G
And we can keep the country in our heart
