Intro : C

                  Am    F  C
Is this just an illusion
       Am             F              C
That I made inside my head to get me by?
Am
20 years in debt
20 years in the government
F                             C
20 years can never get me by


       G
Then I feel you close
Feel you close like you wanted me to
                        F
Feel you close like you wanted me to
Believe in you


Am                     F      C
Rise to the top of the world, America
G                  Am   F
America, don't you cry
        C
Lift me up
        G
Give me strength to press on

America, don't you cry
        C
Lift me up
        G                  C
Give me strength to press on


                    Am    F  C
From farmers in the fields
       Am             F                    C
To the tallest of the towers that fall and rise
  Am  F
1-7-7-6
    C
The names upon the list
    Am                F                C
For all the ones that gave until they died


G
Don't you hold back
      F                                              Am  F  C
I can see in your mind, and your mind will set you free


       G
Then I feel you close
Feel you close like you wanted me to
                        F
Feel you close like you wanted me to
Believe in you


Am                     F      C
Rise to the top of the world, America
G                  Am   F
America, don't you cry
        C
Lift me up
        G                  
Give me strength to press on
Am                     F      C
Rise to the top of the world, America
G                  Am   F
America, don't you cry
        C
Lift me up
        G                  C
Give me strength to press on


Am                     F      C
Rise to the top of the world, America
G                  Am   F
America, don't you cry

Lift me up
        G
