Brian Wilson - South America - Imagination Album

Capo on 2nd (to play along with the record)

C     F

        C     F          C     F
Oh oh wayo ohwayo Oh oh wayo ohwayo

F       G  G

         F                      C
Got a letter from a long lost cousin of mine
            F                             C
Who owns a little piece of heaven in the Argentine
        F                          C
It's a different planet, it's a different place
             G                             G
He calls it out of this world without traveling to space

      F                      C
It's not just a lesson in geography
      F                       C
No equation to unravel alge- brai - ically
        F                            C
It's written in the wind and on the tropical sea
       G                              G
From south of the equator it keeps callin'to me


        C               F
South America well you know I would
        C            F
South America if I only could
C             F             G 
  I wanna be,   I wanna be  where it's at
        C               F
South America I'd go anywhere
        C               F
South America somebody take me there
C             F            G  
  I wanna be,  I wanna be  going back


      F                         C
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
       G                               G
I'm hungry and I'm doing lunch with Cameron Diaz



         C                     F
South America she's got that tango look
         C                     F
South America she'll read you like a book
C            F             G  
  I wanna be,  I wanna be  going back

Bridge (lots of classic BB harmonies and layering here - this is basic!)
     F            C             F        C
It rolls off my tongue like a magical phrase

                     (gimmie that, gimmie that south america - sung over) 
    F       C            G
A simple translation translates and conveys
G               G                G
Gimme that, gimme that, South American girl


      C      F          C      F
Oh oh wayo ohwayo Oh oh wayo ohwayo
C            F             G
  I wanna be,  I wanna be  where it's at

(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
   A sailing boat  or anything that floats Going back


C           F
 Ooo oo oo bop south american
C           F
 Ooo oo oo bop south american
C           F                 G
 Ooo oo oo bop south american girl

        C               F
South America well you know I would
        C            F
South America if I only could
C            F           G    
  I wanna be, I wanna be going back

Can't help smiling when you sing this song!
