INTRO:
Eb F   Eb F


VERSE:
 Eb                                              F
Harbours open their arms to the young searching foreigner
 Eb                                         F
Come to live in the light of the beacon of liberty
 Bb
Plains and open skies
 Am                   Dm
Billboards would advertise
       F              Gm   C          F
Was it anything like that when you arrived?


PRE-CHORUS:
 Cm                                              F
Dream boats carried the future to the heart of America
 Cm                                     F
People were waiting in line for a place by the river


CHORUS:
 F                   Am                    Gm  Bb
It was a time when strangers were welcome here
 F                     Am                    Gm         C
Music would play they tell me the days were sweet and clear
          Am          D
It was a sweeter tune
              Bb      Bb Bbm
And there was so much ro-om
      F           Bb               F    C F
That people could come from everywhere


VERSE:
 Eb                                                 F
Now he arrives with his hopes and his heart set on miracles
 Eb                                             F
Come to marry his fortune with a hand full of promises
    Bb
To find they've closed the door
      Am               Dm
They don't want him anymore
     Gm          Bb           F
There isn't any more to go around


PRE-CHORUS:
 Eb                                        F
Turning away he remembers he once heard a legend
      Eb                                       F
That spoke of a mystical magical land called America


CHORUS:
 F                      Am                    Gm   F
There was a time when strangers were welcome here
 F                     C                     Gm         C
Music would play they tell me the days were sweet and clear
          Am      D
It was a sweeter tune
              Bb         Bbm
And there was so much ro-om
      F           Bb               F   
That people could come from everywhere

Music would play they tell me the days were sweet and clear
          Am      D
It was a sweeter tune
              Bb         Bbm
And there was so much ro-om
      F           Bb               F    C  F
That people could come from everywhere

Music would play they tell me the days were sweet and clear


 F                      Am                    Gm   F
There was a time when strangers were welcome here
 F                     Am                    Gm         C
Music would play they tell me the days were sweet and clear - FADE OUT
