Immigrant Eyes (Key Bb Capo 3rd Fret) Guy Clark

G                              
Old Ellis Island was swarming, 
       C                    Am    
Like a scene from a costume ball, 
       D7                           
Decked out in the colors of Europe, 
   C             D7         G    
On fire with the hope of it all, 
G                                          
There my father's own father stood huddled 
         C                        Am      
With the tired and the hungry and scared, 
    D7                            
The turn of the century pilgrims, 
C            D7              G              
Bound by the dream that they shared 2 3 1 2 
G                                            
They were standing in line just like cattle, 
          C                    Am      
They were poked and sorted and shoved; 
          D7                                
Some were one desk away from sweet freedom; 
          C         D7           G      
Some were torn from someone they loved. 
G                                     
Through this sprawling tower of Babel 
       C                        Am   
Came a young man confused and a-lone 
   D7                              
De-termined and bound for America; 
C              D7            G             
Carrying every-thing that he owned 2 3 1 2 
       
Chorus 
     C                                               G    
Some-times when I look in my grandfather's immigrant eyes 
      D7                                                 G    
I see that day reflected and I can't hold my feelings in-side 
      C                                                 G    
I see starting with nothing and working hard all of his life 
       D7                       C             D7        G

G                                         
Now he rocks and he stares out the window 
        C                      Am    
But his eyes are still just as clear 
       D7                            
As the day he sailed into the harbor 
   C                     G     
To land on the island of tears 
G                                       
My grandfather's days they are numbered 
      C                    Am  
But I won't let his memory die 
       D7                               
For he gave me the gift of this country 
        C           D7                     
And the look in his immigrant eyes 2 3 1 2

      C                                                 G    
I see starting with nothing and working hard all of his life
