Guitar chords with lyrics

Intro:
A D G A
G F#m Em7 D G D G

Verse:
D               G
Called for this place with my working hands
D          G
Sea crossing turn my inside
A            Em7
Left to the sound of the marching band
  D      A       Em
We sail at the change of the tide

Verse:
D          G
When I saw Mary, her father said
    D         G
He was sailing across the deep blue
A           Em7
Brighter new days in a promised land
D      A      Em
She would be going there too

Chorus:
   D       G
So I keep her in my mind
     D       G
There's a picture on my wall
    A      Em7
Oh, my love is in America
  D       A     Em   D G D G
My love could be anywhere at all

Verse:
D            G
Oh, how we cried on that darkest night
D          G
Everyone leaving the land
  A          Em7
The old generation just sitting tight
  D     A        Em
And all of us young bucks with plans

Verse:
  D         G
I'm using the name of another man
  D            G
To get a job here for more pay
   A                Em7
I'll walk these strange streets for a better life
D      A       Em
London's the place, so they say

Chorus:
   D       G
And I keep her in my mind
     D       G
There's a picture on my wall
    A        Em7
Oh, my love, she's in America
  D       A     Em
My love could be anywhere at all
      E A
Anywhere at all..

Instrumental:
E A B A E B A

Verse:
  E              A
The music's the one thing that's travelled well
  E             A
We meet up and play from our soul
  B               A
The kitchen, the work yard and the Seven Bells
E     B       A
Gives us a glimpse of our homes

Verse:
E           A
Maybe I'll make it to New York state
E           A
Maybe I'll just up and go
B           A
Maybe I'll get back to my hometown
E       B       A
See if there's work, I don't know

Verse:
 E           A
I sent many a letter to no avail
  E           A
Her silence is deafening to me
B           A
Maybe she lives with another man
E      B    A
Crossing the new country

Chorus:
        E       A
Till I know, I keep her in my mind
     E       A
There's a picture on my wall
    B      A
Oh, my love is in America
  E       B     A  E
My love could be anywhere at all...

Outro:
