Key: F#m


[Intro] (Lecrae)
F#m
   Land of the free, home of the brave
E6
  But Lord knows that we need plenty change
Dmaj7
     ’Cause plenty chains in the past leaving deep scars
E6
  But when the sun come down, we gonna be stars


[Verse 1]
F#m                                           E6
   The doors are locked where they once stood open
Dmaj7                                    E6
     A wound of fear where we once still hoping 
F#m                                        E6
   The shattered glass where the bullets broke in
                    Dmaj7
I’m looking for the place that I was born
                  E6
I’m looking for a way to fix what’s torn
                 F#m     E6
I’m looking for America   (Yeah, yeah you know) 
                 Dmaj7                                     E6
I’m looking for America (Beaten red white and blue for the green we pursue)

(I’m still lookin’ for you)


[Verse 2]
F#m
   America who are you?
     E6
Underneath the red blue and white? (Yeah)
Dmaj7
     America who are you?
         E6  
I wonder who you are tonight (Tell me who you are)
F#m
   America who are you?
   E6
Is God still on your side?
                Dmaj7 
I want to see a nation rise above the fear and fight
     E6
That haunts these streets tonight


[Chorus]
                  F#m
(I’m looking for America) 
                                         E6
I’m looking for a place to breathe in, a place I could call my home
                  Dmaj7
(I’m looking for America)
                                       E6
I’m looking for the land of freedom, a place I can call my own
                  F#m
(I’m looking for America)
                                           E6
Headlines that I can’t believe in, but I’m still holding on to hope
                  Dmaj7
I’m looking for a miracle (I'm looking for America)
                  E6
I’m looking for a miracle (I'm looking for America)
                 F#m     E6 
I’m looking for America


[Verse 3]
F#m
   America who are you?
     E6
Am I asking for too much (Yeah)
Dmaj7
     America who are you?
         E6
Has your dream become out of touch (I wonder)
F#m
   America who are you?
       E6
Do you get what you deserve
            Dmaj7
Between the violence and entitlements
      N.C.
Which nation do you serve?


[Chorus]
                  F#m
(I’m looking for America) 
                                         E6
I’m looking for a place to breathe in, a place I could call my home
                  Dmaj7
(I’m looking for America)
                                       E6
I’m looking for the land of freedom, a place I can call my own (Call my own)
                  F#m
(I’m looking for America)
                                           E6
Headlines that I can’t believe in, but I’m still holding on to hope
                  Dmaj7
I’m looking for a miracle 
                  E6
I’m looking for a miracle


[Bridge]
                 A        C#7  F#m              F   
I’m singing "Farewell my utopia,  farewell my euphoria"
A                     C#7           F#m              F
 "Fare thee well my suburban day-dream, farewell my utopia"


[Lecrae's verse]
   F#m
America, you so pretty but you not perfect
   E6
Confession of guilt is worth it, these people hurting deserve it
B5/D#
Blood on your hands I saw when there’s blood on this nations floor
         Dmaj7                           C#
But it’s blood on the upper post of your door, if you need to know (Oh!)
F#m                                             
   I’m looking for your honesty in skeletons 
E6
Do away with your ignorance and arrogance
         B5/D#  
America, land of immigrants

Check the green card and pedigree
Dmaj7                     C#
Bless the Choctaw and the Cherokee that we’ll never see


[Chorus]
                  F#m
(I’m looking for America) 
                                         E6
I’m looking for a place to breathe in, a place I could call my home (A place I could call my home)
                  Dmaj7
(I’m looking for America)
                                       E6
I’m looking for the land of freedom, a place I can call my own (Can I call it my own?)
                  F#m
(I’m looking for America)
                                           E6
Headlines that I can’t believe in, but I’m still holding on to hope (Come on!)
                  Dmaj7
I’m looking for a miracle (I'm still lookin' ya)
                  E6
I’m looking for a miracle (I'm still lookin' ya)
                 F#m         E6
I'm looking for America (Yeah, yeah) 


[Outro] (Lecrae + Switchfoot)
Dmaj7
     The land of the free, home of the brave 
E6
  But Lord knows that we need plenty change
                  F#m
(I’m looking for America)

Plenty chains in the past left deep scars
E6
  But when the sun come down, we gonna be stars
Dmaj7
     And may the stripes heal when it’s through
       E6
Beaten red white blue for the green that we pursue
                  F#m
(I’m looking for America)
