A fantastic song from a fantastic band.  Give it a go and give it 'laldy'
as we say in Scotland. Enjoy this one that should have been tabbed ages ago.

The Proclaimers - Letter from America

[Intro]

C     G      Am     G
C     G      Am     G

[Chorus]
         C
When you go will you send back
    F      G     C
A letter from America
         C
Take a look up the railtrack
       F   G     C
From Miami to Canada

[Verse 1]
  F
Broke off from my work the other day
 Am
I spent the evening thinking about
  Am7                Am
All the blood that flowed away
  F
Across the ocean to the second chance
  Am                             F                   G
I wonder how it got on when it reached the promised land?

[Chorus]

  F
I've looked at the ocean
Tried hard to imagine
 Am
The way you felt the day you sailed
 Am7                 Am
From Wester Ross to Nova Scotia
 F
We should have held you
We should have told you
 Am
But you know our sense of timing
 F                  G
We always wait too long

[Chorus]

 C           G
lochaber no more
 Am          G
Sutherland no more
 C           G
Lewis no more
 Am          G
Skye no more......  (x3)

[Verse 2]
 F
I wonder my blood
Will you ever return
 Am
To help us kick the life back
 Am7            Am
To a dying mutual friend
 F
Do we not love her?
Do we not say we love her?
 Am
Do we have to roam the world
 F                    G
To prove how much it hurts?

[Chorus]

 C           G
Bathgate no more
 Am          G
Linwood no more
 C          G
Methil no more
 Am         G
Irvine no more  (4 times, then last line on 4th time 'Lochaber no more')
