American Dreaming
C   Em    D Dsus4 D

C           Em                D      Dsus4 D
I need my conscience to keep watch over me
To protect me from myself
So I can wear honesty 
like a crown on my head
When I walk into the promised land
We've been too long American dreaming
And I think we've all lost the way
C    Em        D               C  Em         D  Dsus4 D Dsus2
Forlorn - somnam-bulistic - maniacal in the dark

C           Em                D      Dsus4 D
I'm in love with an American girl
Well she's my best friend
I love her surreptitious smile
That hides the pain within her
And we'll go dancing in the rings of laughter
And live along by the shores
Feel alone in the brands of rapture
live along for the loss

Chorus
Dsus2-D-Dsus4            C      Em        D
Yeah-ee, on the lea the rising wind blows
Dsus2-D-Dsus4            C      Em        D
Fay-hee, on the lea the rising wind blows
C      Csus4     C      
How long how long?
C      Em        D           C      Em        D       (few times)

C      Em          D   Dsus4 D
Here alone on the grounds 
of allegiances we've left behind
Turned back by the foot of the doorway
Never lost and found
We've been too long American dreaming
I think we've all lost the heart
C    Em        D               C  Em         D  Dsus4 D Dsus2
Forlorn - somnam-bulistic - maniacal in the dark

Chorus
