Chris Ross - Your America chords

      
Great song by Chris Ross, about the effects war can have on a person

CAPO 3RD!


On the verses, continually play a G, but after each line, just mess around 
hammering on and pulling off on the 2nd fret (in relation to the capo) of the A string

GThis here's a town where the roads get mighty slick kid
Keep your nose upon the grindin' stone like the ones behind ya did Dontcha dare get caught a staring 'cross that Hancock County line 'Less the faces of your fathers be forgotten in the shine
Em CSo you wise up real quick to the workin's of the real world and you join up with old Uncle Sam
Em C DShe tells you she's late so you marry a nice girl and it don't always go how you planned
GIn your America man
So you run off to the desert so sure of black and white And you find out real fast it ain't all stars and stripes And the man that's in the mirror he is braver than most But he still gets scared of the Holy Ghost So you see a few things that you'll never get rid of and you leave a few friends in the sand Every day there's more takin' than givin' and it just don't feel Like your America man
EmYou remember you were young you were Clark Kent sittin'
GOn a cloud up high weren't no politician
EmTell you who you could love or lead you to bleed
C DTell you when you could speak or what you should be
EmYou remember you were young and your mama said "Listen
GThis world ain't nothin if it ain't worth wishin"
EmWe're all real lucky to share this land
C DIt ain't just home
GIt's your America man
So you feel a little guilty cause you're home in one peice Sometimes at night you still hear the screams Your woman she's a tryin' but you're makin' it hard Your drinkin' in the mornin' and it's gone too far So you get your first divorce in the fall and you see that kid whenever you can And you try to make some sense of it all but it just don't feel Like your America man You remember you were young you were Clark Kent sittin' On a cloud up high weren't no politician Tell you who you could love or lead you to bleed Tell you when you could speak or what you should be You remember you were young and your mama said "Listen This world ain't nothin if it ain't worth wishin" We're all real lucky to share this land It ain't just home It's your America man So you got some good work fishin' outta the harbor And it sure feels good to be back on the water You're six steps in you got six steps left One day at a time you're comin' back to yourself And your boy he's a growin' up so fast he tells you he's startin' a band You can't help but smile and tell him you love him Cause it ain't just yours It's his America man You remember you were young you were Clark Kent sittin' On a cloud up high weren't no politician Tell you who you could love or lead you to bleed Tell you when you could speak or what you should be You remember you were young and your mama said "Listen This world ain't nothin if it ain't worth wishin" We're all real lucky to share this land It ain't just home No it ain't just home No it ain't just home It's our America man
