G D GWhat is this land of America, so many travel there
G C DI'm going now while I'm still young, my darling meet me there
G C GWish me luck my lovely, I'll send for you when I can
G C D G G C D GAnd we'll make our home in the American land
G D GOver there all the woman wear silk and satin to their knees
G C DAnd children dear, the sweets, I hear, are growing on the trees
G C GGold comes rushing out the river straight into your hands
G C D G G C D GIf you make your home in the American land
G D GThere's diamonds in the sidewalks, there's gutters lined in song
G C DDear I hear that beer flows through the faucets all night long
G C GThere's treasure for the taking, for any hard working man
G C D G G C D GWho will make his home in the American land
G D G, G C D, G C G, G C D G
G D GI docked at Ellis Island in a city of light and spire
G C DI wandered to the valley of red-hot steel and fire
G C GWe made the steel that built the cities with the sweat of our two hands
G C D G G C D GAnd I made my home in the American land
G D GThere's diamonds in the sidewalk, there's gutters lined in song
G C DDear I hear that beer flows through the faucets all night long
G C GThere's treasure for the taking, for any hard working man
G C D G G C D GWho will make his home in the American land
G D G, G C D, G C G, G C D G
G D GThe McNicholas, the Posalski's, the Smiths, Zerillis too
G C DThe Blacks, the Irish, Italians, the Germans and the Jews
G C GThe Puerto Ricans, illegals, the Asians, Arabs miles from home
G C D G Come across the water with a fire down below
G D GThey died building the railroads, worked to bones and skin
G C DThey died in the fields and factories, names scattered in the wind
G C GThey died to get here a hundred years ago, they're dyin' now
G C D G The hands that built the country we're all trying to keep down
G D GThere's diamonds in the sidewalk, there's gutters lined in song
G C DDear I hear that beer flows through the faucets all night long
G C GThere's treasure for the taking, for any hard working man
G C D G Who will make his home in the American land?
G C D G Who will make his home in the American land?
G C D G Who will make his home in the American land?
G D G, G C D, G C G, G C D G G D G, G C D, G C G, G C D G G C D G, (slow down) G C D G
