Intro
Am Bm/f# Em G Am Bm/f# G


Verse 1
G      C                Em
 Every day I see these people
     C                G
as I travel along the way.
          C                 Em
some look happy, some look sad,
          F         G    Am               Dsus D D2 D
but their eyes cry out, "I don't know the light.
F               G     Am               Dsus D D2 D
Hide the guilt, let's try to look real nice."


Chorus
G      D                C
 America, come back to God!
G               D         C
 Land of the free, be set free!
G      D                C               G
 America, when will you fall on your knees,
Am           C               G
 and cry for God to let you see.


Verse 2
G        C             Em
 So much sin, so much evil.
         C                     G
My heart cries for these blind people.
                C              Em
They think they see the true reality,
            F G Am Dsus D D2 D
but they're oh, so blind.
 F      G Am       Dsus D D2 D
America I pray for you.


Verse 3
G       C                   Em
 Oh, my friend, don't be a coward.
        C             G
Call on God this very hour.
       C               Em
Find a place of quiet solitude,
 F              G       Am              Dsus D D2 D
alone with God, let Him do His work within.
F           G  Am                Dsus D D2 D
One by one, by one, confess your sin.


Verse 4
G       C           Em
 I love you, dear America,
              C                G
and if you'll listen to what I say,
               C                       Em
You'll see the light, you'll know what living's for;
    F              G   Am                  Dsus D D2 D
You don't know all the peace you've left behind!
       F               G  Am               Dsus D D2 D
You'll laugh and say, "My God, what joy is mine!"


Ending

                         and cry for God to let you see.
Am            C               G G Am Bm Em
 and cry for God to let you see.
