Vers 1:
 
Dm
As if i really didnt understand
 Bb
That i was just another part of their plan 
     C
I went off looking for the promise
Dm
Believing in the Motherland

Vers 2:

Dm
And from the comfort of a dreamer's bed
Bb
And the safety of my own head
C
I went on speaking of the future
Dm
While other people fought and bled 

Bridge 1:

F                                Bb
The kid I was when I first left home
F                                             Bb
Was looking for his freedom and a life of his own
F                                             Bb
But the freedom that he found wasn't quite as sweet
F                                Bb     C
When the truth was known

Chorus 1:

C
I have prayed for America
Am
I was made for America
Bb
It's in my blood and in my bones
                        Bb - C
By the dawn's early light
                        Bb - C
By all I know is right
                                     Bb - C
We're going to reap what we have sown

Dm - Bb - C - Dm x 1

Vers 4

Dm
As if freedom was a question of might
Bb
As if loyalty was black and white
C
You hear people say it all the time-
Dm
"My country wrong or right"

Vers 5

Dm
I want to know what that's got to do
Bb
With what it takes to find out what's true
C
With everyone from the President on down
Dm
Trying to keep it from you

Bridge 2

F                                Bb
The thing I wonder about the Dads and Moms
F                                Bb
Who send their sons to the Vietnams
F                                Bb
Will they really think their way of life
F                                Bb       C
Has been protected as the next war comes?

Chorus 2

C
I have prayed for America
Am
I was made for America
Bb
Her shining dream plays in my mind
                        Bb - C
By the rockets red glare
                        Bb - C
A generation's blank stare
                        Bb - C
We better wake her up this time

Dm - Bb - C - Dm x 1

Solo:

Bridge 3:

F                                Bb
The kid I was when I first left home
F                                Bb
Was looking for his freedom and a life of his own
F                                Bb
But the freedom that he found wasn't quite as sweet
F                                Bb        C
When the truth was known

Chorus 3:

C
I have prayed for America
Am
I was made for America
Bb
I can't let go till she comes around
                        Bb - C
Until the land of the free
                        Bb - C
Is awake and can see
                        Bb - C
And until her conscience has been found

Dm - Bb - C - Dm x 1
