Got a letter from a long lost cousin of mine
            F                             C
Who owns a little piece of heaven in the Argentine

You only get to heaven if you chase your dreams
            F                       C
Let the paparazzi flash, let the tabloid scream
       F                                  C
I've been around too long to care what anyone says

(Oh oh wayo ohwayo Oh oh wayo ohwayo sung over)
        C             F
South America I'm not on some trip
        C             F
South America I just long for a ship
C                F                         G
