Am
I was sitting in a station bar,  
 C            G       Am 
somewhere in amerika  
 Am     C               G 
when an old man came to me  
 Am        
he said: "can I sit next to you?",  
    C              G      Am
and I had nothing else to do  
       C                     G 
so he sat down and drank his beer  


    Am  
he told me 'bout the rocks and hills,  
 C               G             Am 
about the autum and its chill  
 Am        C               G 
about the valleys and the rain  
 Am     
and then he spoke of former times,  
 C                  G            Am 
about his children and his wife  
 Am   C               G 
and about what yet remained  


 F           G 
suddenly he said: "my son,  
 F                Em 
do you know the land,  
 Em   Em    Em    Em 
where i've come from  
 Em Em  Em
and he asked  


 Am               G 
do you know the land of green,  
 Em             F 
its rough and stormy sea  
 Am               G            Em  FG  
do you know the island of the rain  
 Am               G 
do you know the land of green,  
 Em            F 
its wondrous scenery  
 Am               G            Em  FG 
do you know the island of the rain  



 Am         
many of us had left their homes,  
 C               G              Am 
never felt the westwind blow again  
    C                G 
he said with lonely eyes  
      Am       
they once had worked upon the land,  
      C              G               Am
that now is in some stranger's hands     
    C               G 
he said with angry eyes  


 F                  G 
the more he spoke, the more he drank  
 F 
the more he kept  
     Em      Em  Em   Em  Em  Em 
on telling 'bout his land and he  
 Em 
said  


 Am               G 
do you know the land of green,  
 E             F 
its rough and stormy sea  
 Am               G            Em  FG  
do you know the island of the rain  
 Am              G 
do you know the land of green,  
 Em            F 
its wondrous scenery  
 Am               G            Em  FG 
do you know the island of the rain 


       Am           
even though the bar was full of noise,  
     C             G              Am 
the man began to lower his voice  
          C             G 
and stood up without a word  
 Am 
although it is five years ago i  
 C 
swear  
         G           Am 
that i exactly know   
       C                G 
every word that we had said  


   F                  G 
I still can see his trembling hands,  
 F              Em    Em   Em   Em 
as he told the story 'bout his land 
Em  Em Em 
and he said  



 Am               G 
do you know the land of green,  
 E             F 
its rough and stormy sea  
 Am               G            Em  FG  
do you know the island of the rain  
 Am               G 
do you know the land of green,  
 Em            F 
its wondrous scenery  
 Am               G            Em  FG 
do you know the island of the rain 



 Am               G 
do you know the land of green,  
 Em             F 
its rough and stormy sea  
 Am               G            Em  FG  
do you know the island of the rain  
 Am               G 
do you know the land of green,  
 Em            F 
its wondrous scenery  
 Am               G            Em  FG
