America the Beautiful chords
Words by Katharine Lee Bates
Melody by Samuel Ward 

    G             D
O beautiful for spacious skies, 
    D7             G
for amber waves of grain 
                    D
For purple mountain majesties, 
 A        A7      D    D7
above the fruited plain! 
 G        D     
America! America! 
    D7                G
God shed his grace on thee 
    C                   G
And crown thy good with brotherhood, 
     C      D7      G
from sea to shining sea! 

  G             D
O beautiful for pilgrim feet, 
      D7                G
whose stern impassioned stress
                  D
A thoroughfare of freedom beat, 
 A         A7    D   D7
across the wilderness! 
 G        D
America! America! 
    D7               G
God mend thine every flaw 
   C                G
Confirm thy soul in self-control, 
    C    D7    G
Thy liberty in law!

  G             D
O beautiful for heroes proved, 
   D7         G
in liberating strife.
                         D
Who more than self their country loved,
    A     A7        D   D7
and mercy more than life! 
 G        D
America! America! 
    D7             G
May God thy gold refine 
     C              G
Till all success be nobleness, 
    C     D7     G
and every gain divine! 


  G             D
O beautiful for patriot dream, 
     D7              G
that sees beyond the years 
                D
Thine alabaster cities gleam, 
  A         A7    D    D7
undimmed by human tears! 
 G        D
America! America! 
    D7                G
God shed his grace on thee 
    C                   G
And crown thy good with brotherhood, 
     C      D7      G
from sea to shining sea! 


O beautiful for halcyon skies, 
For amber waves of grain, 
For purple mountain majesties 
Above the enameled plain! 
America! America! 
God shed his grace on thee 
Till souls wax fair as earth and air 
And music-hearted sea! 

O beautiful for pilgrims feet, 
Whose stem impassioned stress 
A thoroughfare for freedom beat 
Across the wilderness! 
America! America! 
God shed his grace on thee 
Till paths be wrought through 
wilds of thought 
By pilgrim foot and knee! 

O beautiful for glory-tale 
Of liberating strife 
When once and twice, 
for man's avail 
Men lavished precious life! 
America! America! 
God shed his grace on thee 
Till selfish gain no longer stain 
The banner of the free! 

O beautiful for patriot dream 
That sees beyond the years 
Thine alabaster cities gleam 
Undimmed by human tears! 
America! America! 
God shed his grace on thee 
Till nobler men keep once again 
Thy whiter jubilee!
