intro: F#m  -  E    -  D   and then next:  e/--0-2-3-2-0-2-
F#m	     E               D       (+tabbed part)
Oh my love, it's a long way we've come 
From the freckled hills, to the steel and glass canyons 

Am                          G                   D (+ tabbed part)
From the stony fields, to hanging steel from the sky 
From digging in our pockets for a reason not to say goodbye 

F#m             E                D  (+ tabbed part)
These are the hands that built America 
Oh, oh oh, America 

F#m             E              D    (+ tabbed part)
Last saw your face in a watercolour sky 
As sea birds argue, a long goodbye 

Am		            G			D
I took your kiss, on the spray of the new land star 
You gotta live with your dreams, don't make them so hard 

F#m		    E		     D	
And these are the hands, that built America 
Ah, ah ah, America

Am			G			D
Of all of the promises, is this one we could keep 
Of all of the dreams, is this one still out of reach 

Halle, ole 
(this part of tenor voice, i don´t have how is it) 

F#m			E			D
It's early fall, there's a cloud on the New York skyline 
Innocence, dragged across a yellow line 

F#m		E		D (+tabbed part)
These are the hands that built America 
These are the hands that built America 
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah America 
Oh-la-la-ah-ah America

it´s me. I have a mistake, the chords are allright but, i´m sure that they haven´t got a right position, anyway try to play the song and you will find the correct way.
I´m sorry, thanks

I dunno, I was trying it along with the recording and it sounds just fine. Keep up the good work!
