G Em C G (2x)


[Verse 1]
G Em C GI lit the fire, poured out the bottle
G Em C DAsked the moonlight what it might have seen
Em Bm C DIf it answered, I can't remember
G F# Em D C GI fell down in to the American Dream
[Verse 2]
G Em C GBeen too long in the Devil's workshop
G Em C DSo I'm driving the backbone to change the scenery
Em Bm C DHere come the horses through purgatory
G F# Em D C GThey fell down in to the American Dream
[Chorus]
D C GSummer time sunshine, shine on me
C G DShow me where I'm going
[Verse 3]

[Instrumental] G F# Em D C (x4) [Verse 4]
G Em C GSun-bleached dresses wavin' from a clothesline
G Em C DCome Saturday evening, they'll have a place to be
Em Bm C DI'll pick some flowers to take to her Mama
G F# Em D C GI fell down in to the American Dream
[Chorus]
D C GSummer time sunshine, shine on me
C G DWon't you show me where I'm goin'?
