Electric Light Orchestra
from "Balance of Power"

Transcribed by Chris Gaasch

Verse:
         D                         A
Somebody told her that there was a place like heaven=20
Bm                    G
Across the water on a seven-fortyseven=20
D                 Bm    A      D        Bm  A
Yeah, we're living in a modern world.
D                            A
And pretty soon she's really got the notion=20
   Bm                    G
Of flying out across the big blue ocean=20
D                 Bm    A      D (D-Bm-G-A)
Yeah, we're living in a modern world.

Pre-Chorus:
F#               Bm
Talk is cheap on satellite=20
    G            Em C
But all I get is static=20
F#   Bm      F#        Bm
Information, I'm still here=20
   G           A
Re-dial on automatic.

Chorus:=20
                D                    G
      Calling America (can't get a message through)=20
                D                        A
      Calling America (that's what she said to do)=20
                D                         G
      Calling America (that's where she has to be)=20
                D                   A
      Calling America (she left a number for me)=20
                A
      Calling America.

Verse:
But I'm just talking to a satellite=20
Twenty thousand miles up in the sky each night=20
Yeah, we're living in a modern world.
All I had to do was pick up the phone=20
I'm out in space, trying to talk to someone=20
D                 Bm    A      D   (D-C#m)
Yeah, we're living in a modern world.

Pre-Chorus:
She left a number I could call=20
But no one's there, no one at all=20
There must be something going wrong=20
That number just rings on and on.

Chorus:=20
      Calling America (can't get a message through)=20
      Calling America (that's what she said to do)=20
      Calling America (that's where she has to be)=20
      Calling America (she left a number for me)=20
      Calling America.
