E					Aadd9/E
You called all the way from America

			   E
Said "Hang onto love girl"

	  Aadd9/E 				 Badd11
But the weeks and the months and the years

E		Aadd9/E
Passed by...

			   E
And my eyes couldn't stand the strain

   Aadd9/E 	     Badd11
Of that promised love

E			Aadd9/E		E		Aadd9/E
All the way from America

E			Aadd9/E		E		Aadd9/E
All the way from America

	     E			Aadd9/E
You called all the way from America

				E
Said I'll soon be home girl

    Aadd9/E 			  Badd11
And years and the tears and the fears,

E		Aadd9/E
Passed by...

			    E
And my heart couldn't stand the pain

   Aadd9/E 	     Badd11
of that promised love

E			Aadd9/E 		E		Aadd9/E
All the way from America

E			Aadd9/E 		E		Aadd9/E
All the way from America

	   E			 Aadd9/E
I stayed all alone and I waited round

				E
For you to knock at my door

        Aadd9/E
But the knock never came

	 Badd11
and no ring

E	   Aadd9/E
At all....

			E
And now I sit and wonder why

    Aadd9/E 	  Badd11
You made that first call

E			Aadd9/E
All the way way from America

		    	   Badd11
I don't believe I'll stay here

E			 	Aadd9/E 	Badd11
I don't think I want to wait here anymore

Aadd9/E 			Badd11
And if you search for me baby

E			     Aadd9/E 	  Badd11
Better bring some more love than you declared

E			Aadd9/E 		E	Badd11	Aadd9/E
All the way from America

E			Aadd9/E 		E		Aadd9/E
All the way from America

Aadd9/E   E    Aadd9/E    E    Aadd9/E


			    E
And my heart couldn't stand the pain

   Aadd9/E 	     Badd11
of that promised love


E			Aadd9/E 		E	Badd11	Aadd9/E
All the way from America

E			Aadd9/E 		E		Aadd9/E
All the way from America

E			Aadd9/E 		E		Aadd9/E
All the way from America

E    Aadd9/E   E    Aadd9/E   Badd11   E
[pause]
E   Aadd9/E    E   Aadd9/E   E   Aadd9/E   [fade]
