Roger McGuinn    America For Me    Henry Van Dyke/Roger McGuinn

A    Bm              E         A          C#m    F#m
It's fine to see the old world and travel up and down
D                E                     A
Among the famous palaces and cities of renown
Bm                  E       A               C#m    F#m
To admire crumbling castles and the statues of the kings
D                    E                        A
But now I think I've had enough of antiquated things
        Bm         E     A       C#m F#m
So it's home  home again America for me
D                   E                               A
My heart is turning home again it's where I want to be
       Bm                E       A          C#m      F#m
In the land of youth and freedom beyond the ocean    wide
D                        E                             A
Where the air is full of sunlight and the flag full of stars
   Bm          E          A             C#m    F#m
Oh London is a man's town there's power in the air
D              E                                A
And Paris is a woman's town with flowers in her hair
         Bm                E           A        C#m   F#m
And it's sweet to dream in Venice it's great to study Rome
D                    E                            A
But when it comes to living there's no place like home
        Bm         E     A       C#m   F#m^?
So it's home  home again America for   me
D                   E                               A
My heart is turning home again it's where I want to be
       Bm                E          A       C#m   F#m
In the land of youth and freedom beyond the ocean wide
D                        E                             A
Where the air is full of sunlight and the flag full of stars
Bm              E             A         C#m      F#m
I know Europe's wonderful yet something seems to lack
D                    E                               A
The past is too much with her and the people looking back
        Bm           E             A        C#m    F#m
 Oh the glory of the present is to make the future free
D                    E                              A
We love our land for what she is and what she is to be
        Bm         E     A       C#m  F#m
So it's home  home again America for   me
D                   E                               A
My heart is turning home again it's where I want to be
       Bm                E          A       C#m    F#m
In the land of youth and freedom beyond the oceans green
D                        E                             A
Where the air is full of sunlight and the flag full of stars

        Unreleased song performed in the early  80's
