Woke Up in America Chords (Transposable):


Verse 1
G                                           C
I was born on a rock in the middle of the ocean
G                                     C
Where the wind's so rough it can carry you to London
  Am                                              C
It's a new found land with an old soul reaching
    G    C
For the light of day

Verse 2
  G                                    C
My parents gave me a life full of dreams
   G                                                  C
Yeah they gave me a heart to endure most anything
   Am                                      C
But everyone gets a broken pair of wi ngs
                                               G
And if you try to fly you'll fail
               D                                        
But a voice said "Lift up your head"
             Em                         C 
And my heart burst out of my chest

Chorus 
    G                                       C
I woke up in America for the love of God
       G                                    C
I woke up in America for something bigger than myself
    Em                      C
More than fireworks and fanfare
   G                            D
More than a star-spangled banner
    Em              C
You're still beautiful America
Verse 3
G                   C     
Yeah its late in the night look in the mirror
 G                            C
Count the lines on my face and wonder how they got there
    Am                                             C
Oh but every one's a story of how grace appeared
                                G
And carried me through the day
                          D
And the voice said, "this land ain't dead"
         Em                                  C
You still got better days up ahead
Chorus
    G                                                  C
I woke up in America for the love of God
     G                                                 C
I woke up in America for something bigger than myself
     Em                           C
More than fireworks and fanfare
      G                            D  
More than a star-spangled banner
  Em                   C    
You're still beautiful America

Solo  Em C G D 2x
Bridge
                               C
I've seen the horizon ablaze in Arizona
              G                             D 
Shoreline shoutin' over California
                   C 
Moonlight dancin' over the Dakotas
             G                              D
It breaks your heart, it's so beautiful
                     C
Lady Liberty, she leaves the light on
           G                                     D
From the west side all the way to Long Island
                C 
Carolina Coast to the Rocky Mountains
      G                                  D
The sun is shining over me
Chorus
        G                                                  C
I woke up in America for the love of God
            G                                                   C
I woke up in America for something bigger than myself
     Em                                     C
More than wealth or depression
       G                                     D
More than a red or blue nation

       Em                                  C
Here in our hells and our heaven
       G                                      D
You're still beautiful America
      G                                     C
You're beautiful America
         G                                C          G
You're beautiful America
