American Eyes
By: The Lilac Time

Capo: On First fret

Intro:   C         F   G
Here is a story of three young people
C                                               F/G               C
A girl and two boys, she's got American eyes, American eyes
They left school for fame and fortune
C                                                          F
But she was the one, the girl with the stars in her eyes
Stars and stripes in her eyes

I was one of the boys, oh how I loved her
C                                                          F
But she wouldn't see me, She shut her apple pie eyes
    G                      C
As blue as Jamaica skies
C                                      F            G
Oh unrequited love quite often grows, and never quite goes
C                         F     G
Cho doh doh doh ,  Ohh Ohh (American eyes)

He was one of the boys, he joined the army
G                               F           G                      C
He sailed from American shores, to fight the foreigners' war

F                                       F                       G
Baby shut your eyes up tight, I swear the world won't end tonight
         F                   G          F                  G
And when we die our spirits fly, into the light above the sky
C               F
Ohh ohh ohh ohh
G             C
