Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Capo VI

This song follows seamlessly on from Anais' song Wilderland, 
and they work amazingly played together. 
The chords Anais plays in the verse part are:
Em (022000), C (332010), and the same as the C chord but two frets up (554020). 
For the chorus bit the best I can make out for the chords are: A, (002220),
unknown chord one (x3434x), unknown chord two (x4545x), and Am (002210).

Intro: Em, C, (554020)

      Em
My mother gave a mighty shout
C
Opened her legs and let me out
       (554020) 
Hungry as a prairie dog

Young man in America

Young man in America
    Em                  C
Hungry, hungry, running every which way
           (554020)
Young man in Americ-kay

   Em
I come out like a cannonball
C
Come of age of alcohol
      (554020)
Raven in a field of rye

With a black and roving eye

Black and roving eye
     Em                          C
Ravenous, ravenous, what you've got is not enough
        (554020)
Young man in America


A          (x3434x)
Oh shelter
               (x4545x)
Mother shelter
               A
Mother shelter us
Am
Oooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-oooh


    Em
My father was a lord of land
C
My daddy was a repo man
   (554020)
He put me out into the street

He didn't give a damn for me

Did not give a damn
   Em                C
Daddy, daddy, gonna wish you never had me
              (554020)
I'm a young man
            Em
I'm growing right before your eyes
       C
I might grow to such a size
       (554020)
Blowing like a hurricane

Everyone will know my name

Everyone'll know my name
      Em
Blowing in, blowing out,
     C
Shadow on a mountaintop
       (554020)
Young man in America


A          (x3434x)
Oh shepherd
               (x4545x)
Father shepherd
                A
Father shepherd us
Am
Oooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-oooh


Em
In my feathers and furs
C
Clothes of many colours
     (554020)
Many men will envy me

When I'm in my finery

Me and my finery
     Em                     C
Envy me, envy me, spending all of my bright money
         (554020)
Young man in Americ-kay

Em
Maybe I'll climb the stairs
C
With the girl with golden hair
         (554020)
Hold her like a sword and shield

Up against this lonely world

Up against the world
         Em
It's a lonely, lonely world
C
For a yellow-headed girl
      (554020)
And a young man


BREAK: A, (x3434x), (x4545x)   (X2)  
Am
Oooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-oooh

          Em
Like the wind I make my moan
C
Howl in the canyon
         (554020)
There's a hollow in my bones
                        Em
Make me cry and carry on
                          C
Make the foam fly from my tongue

Make me want what I want
(554020)
Another wayward son
                   Em
Waiting on oblivion
                               C
Waiting for a kingdom come to meet me in my sin
              (554020)
Waiting to be born again

Mother kiss me cheek and chin
Em
Mmm, a little nedicine
C                          (554020)
Mmm, I'm gonna shed my skin
                                                  Em
Mmm, and let me climb back in the bed you made me in



I'm new to guitar, so I'm sure this can be improved, 
if you have suggestions they'd be appreciated!
