Intro G G C G
GWe were poor
GBut I was satisfied
C GAnd I thought that you were, too
GYou were pure
GAnd I was terrified
C GI wasn't good enough for you
GWhen they sailed
GInto the harbour
C GI could see it in your eyes
GI knew
EmThat you were dreaming
C GOf leaving me behind
Chorus
G D GYou say "America is beautiful"
D EmAnd I sure hope you're right

GWhen I met
GThat Yankee sailor
C GHe stood tall and shook my hand
GHe took pleasure
