Intro -x2-: C  G  Am  G

Chorus:
         C
When you go will you send back
    F      G     C
a letter from America
         C
Take a look up the railtrack
       F   G     C
From Miami to Canada


  F
Broke off from my work the other day
 Am
I spent the evening thinking about
  Am7                Am
All the blood that flowed away
  F
Across the ocean to the second chance
  Am                             F                   G
I wonder how it got on when it reached the promised land?

Chorus:
         C
When you go will you send back
    F      G     C
a letter from America
         C
Take a look up the railtrack
       F   G     C
From Miami to Canada

  F
I've looked at the ocean

Tried hard to imagine
 Am
The way you felt the day you sailed
 Am7                 Am
From Wester Ross to Nova Scotia
 F
We should have held you

We should have told you
 Am
But you know our sense of timing
 F                  G
We always wait too long

Chorus:
         C
When you go will you send back
    F      G     C
a letter from America
         C
Take a look up the railtrack
       F   G     C
From Miami to Canada

 F
I wonder my blood

Will you ever return
 Am
To help us kick the life back
 Am7            Am
To a dying mutual friend
 F
Do we not love her?

Do we not say we love her?
 Am
Do we have to roam the world
 F                    G
To prove how much it hurts?

Chorus:
         C
When you go will you send back
    F      G     C
a letter from America
         C
Take a look up the railtrack
       F   G     C
From Miami to Canada
