Verse 1
  D                               G
A wise man was telling stories to me
          A                             G               D
about the places he had been to and the things that had seen


Chorus
    D                                 G
A quiet voice is singing something to me
   A                                    G                D
An age old song 'bout the brave in this land here of the free,
    G        A             D
One time one night in America 


Verse 2
  D     
A lady dressed in white with the man she loves 
                                         G
Standing along the side of their pick up truck
  D                    G 
A shot rang out in the night
          D                 G
Just when everything seemed right
        D                A            D
Another headline written down in America


Verse 3
    D
The guy that lived next door in three o five
                                                          G
took the kids to the park and disappeared 'bout half past nine 
D             G        D                   G
Who will ever know how much she loved them so
D                A            D
That dark night alone in America


Chorus
    D                                 G
A quiet voice is singing something to me
   A                                    G                D
An age old song 'bout the brave in this land here of the free,
    G        A             D
One time one night in America 


Verse 4
D
Four small boys playing ball in the parking lot
                                              G
A preacher, a teacher, and the other became a cop
  D                    G
A car skidded into the rain
           D                 G
Making the last little one a saint
D                   A           D
One more light goes out in America 


Verse 5
  D     
A young girl tosses a coin in the wishing well
                                                       G
She hopes for a heaven while for her there's just this hell
    D             G         D               G
She gave away her life to become somebody's wife
 D             A                D
Another wish unanswered in America


*Bridge*
A
People having so much faith
                   G                 D
Die too soon while all the rest come late
   A    
We write a song that no one sings
                              G                          A
On a cold black stone where a lasting peace will finally bring

Verse 6

The sunlight plays upon my window pane
                                      G
I wake up to a world that's still the same
   D                 G
My father said to be strong
       D                       G
That a good man could never do wrong
     D                A             D
In a dream I had last night in America

about the places he had been to and the things that had seen

A quiet voice is singing something to me
   A                                    G                D
An age old song 'bout the brave in this land here of the free,

One time one night in America
