Young Man In America
Capo VI This song follows seamlessly on from Anais' song Wilderland, and they work amazingly played together. The chords Anais plays in the verse part are: Em (022000), C (332010), and the same as the C chord but two frets up (554020). For the chorus bit the best I can make out for the chords are: A, (002220), unknown chord one (x3434x), unknown chord two (x4545x), and Am (002210). Intro: Em, C, (554020) Em My mother gave a mighty shout C Opened her legs and let me out (554020) Hungry as a prairie dog Young man in America Young man in America Em C Hungry, hungry, running every which way (554020) Young man in Americ-kay Em I come out like a cannonball C Come of age of alcohol (554020) Raven in a field of rye With a black and roving eye Black and roving eye Em C Ravenous, ravenous, what you've got is not enough (554020) Young man in America A (x3434x) Oh shelter (x4545x) Mother shelter A Mother shelter us Am Oooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-oooh Em My father was a lord of land C My daddy was a repo man (554020) He put me out into the street He didn't give a damn for me Did not give a damn Em C Daddy, daddy, gonna wish you never had me (554020) I'm a young man Em I'm growing right before your eyes C I might grow to such a size (554020) Blowing like a hurricane Everyone will know my name Everyone'll know my name Em Blowing in, blowing out, C Shadow on a mountaintop (554020) Young man in America A (x3434x) Oh shepherd (x4545x) Father shepherd A Father shepherd us Am Oooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-oooh Em In my feathers and furs C Clothes of many colours (554020) Many men will envy me When I'm in my finery Me and my finery Em C Envy me, envy me, spending all of my bright money (554020) Young man in Americ-kay Em Maybe I'll climb the stairs C With the girl with golden hair (554020) Hold her like a sword and shield Up against this lonely world Up against the world Em It's a lonely, lonely world C For a yellow-headed girl (554020) And a young man BREAK: A, (x3434x), (x4545x) (X2) Am Oooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-oooh Em Like the wind I make my moan C Howl in the canyon (554020) There's a hollow in my bones Em Make me cry and carry on C Make the foam fly from my tongue Make me want what I want (554020) Another wayward son Em Waiting on oblivion C Waiting for a kingdom come to meet me in my sin (554020) Waiting to be born again Mother kiss me cheek and chin Em Mmm, a little nedicine C (554020) Mmm, I'm gonna shed my skin Em Mmm, and let me climb back in the bed you made me in I'm new to guitar, so I'm sure this can be improved, if you have suggestions they'd be appreciated!
