My Love Is In America (Mick Hanly)

My love is in America
And I miss him tonight
So much so
I feel like taking the money
We've saved
And catching a flight (2x)

The children are asleep in bed
And I'm on my own
Even though I've read his letters
Again & again I'm alone

But the money I send home
Is barely enough
There's an ocean that keeps us apart
I've been lonely for home
But I mustn't give up
What about this aching heart

Johnny come home
I need you tonight (2x)

My love is in America
But it's hard to go out
Just because
Certain assumptions are made
When your man's not about (2x)

My love is in America
And I'm not so sure
Maybe I'd rather him here in my arms
And us to be poor

Stillthe money I send home is barely enough
There's an ocean that keeps us apart
I've an aching for home
But I mustn't give up

What about this aching heart

Johnny come home
I need you tonight (2x)

(the above last verse repeats 3x).

Barry

Lyrics posted above by Barry Finn. No chords, though. You would have better results if you had done a Lyr/Chord Req(uest). I see if an elf can fix it.

1. Find Dolores singing it on YouTube. Print the lyrics, get out your guitar, sit in front of your computer, play the song, and try out different chords. When you've got one, put the chord symbol on the lyrics.

The song doesn't appeal to me, as it happens, and I haven't even listened to all of it.   

2. I think it's in 4/4. It seems to be in the key of G.    The first chord is a G, the second is a D (on the second note of the last a in "America."

You can expect the following chords if it's in G:

G Am Bm C D Em

3. Once you've got all of Dolores's chords figured out, you will probably have to change the key to suit own voice.

4. Get back to us and tell us how it all works out.

You're welcome. It's always a pleasure to get somebody going on a new piece of music.
