Bruce Springsteen - American Land

from the album: We Shall Overcome The Seeger Sessions

Released: August 21 2006

(This song is really just a repeat of the chord progression below.)

Intro: G   D G, G   C D, G   C G, G  C  D  G (x3)

      G                           D           G
What is this land of America, so many travel there
      G                                    C              D
I'm going now while I'm still young, my darling meet me there
  G                                C              G
Wish me luck my lovely, I'll send for you when I can
     G               C          D        G     G  C  D  G
And we'll make our home in the American land

      G                                 D              G
Over there all the woman wear silk and satin to their knees
      G                                      C             D
And children dear, the sweets, I hear, are growing on the trees
  G                                C                  G
Gold comes rushing out the river straight into your hands
        G         C            D        G     G  C  D  G
If you make your home in the American land


          G                                  D               G
There's diamonds in the sidewalks, there's gutters lined in song
 G                                       C                 D
Dear I hear that beer flows through the faucets all night long
          G                           C                G
There's treasure for the taking, for any hard working man
          G        C           D        G     G  C  D  G
Who will make his home in the American land


G   D G, G   C D, G   C G, G  C  D  G

   G                           D                 G
I docked at Ellis Island in a city of light and spire
    G                        C                 D
I wandered to the valley of red-hot steel and fire
    G                                             C                G
We made the steel that built the cities with the sweat of our two hands
       G        C          D        G     G  C  D  G
And I made my home in the American land


          G                                D                G
There's diamonds in the sidewalk, there's gutters lined in song
 G                                        C                D
Dear I hear that beer flows through the faucets all night long
         G                            C                G
There's treasure for the taking, for any hard working man
          G         C          D        G     G  C  D  G
Who will make his home in the American land


G   D G, G   C D, G   C G, G  C  D  G

      G                              D                G
The McNicholas, the Posalski's, the Smiths, Zerillis too
      G                                C              D
The Blacks, the Irish, Italians, the Germans and the Jews
  G                                       C                G
The Puerto Ricans, illegals, the Asians, Arabs miles from home
 G               C            D          G  
Come across the water with a fire down below


      G                             D                  G
They died building the railroads, worked to bones and skin
      G                                       C                D
They died in the fields and factories, names scattered in the wind
      G                                C                 G
They died to get here a hundred years ago, they're dyin' now
     G                     C                D              G  
The hands that built the country we're all trying to keep down


          G                                D                G
There's diamonds in the sidewalk, there's gutters lined in song
G                                        C                 D
Dear I hear that beer flows through the faucets all night long
         G                            C               G
There's treasure for the taking, for any hard working man
          G         C          D        G   
Who will make his home in the American land?
          G         C          D        G  
Who will make his home in the American land?
          G         C          D        G  
Who will make his home in the American land?

G   D G, G   C D, G   C G, G  C  D  G

G   D G, G   C D, G   C G, G  C  D  G

G  C  D  G,    (slow down) G  C  D  G
