Somewhere In America Lyrics

Across the North Dakota hills the twilit road unwinds,

E A E B7 E

the setting sun sprays showers of gold across the dark green pines.

E A E B7

The evening shadows change from grey to an ever deepening blue,

E A E B7 E

and I'm somewhere in America, half a world away from you.



+ E - A - E - B7 - E



E A E B7

2. With sixteen towns behind me, and sixteen more to go,

E A E B7 E

I've long since stopped believing in the romance of the road.

E A E B7

Though friends and kind hearts wait for me in the town I'm heading to,

E A E B7 E

I'm somewhere in America, half a world away from you.



E A B7 E

And the road goes on and on and on,

E A B7 E

the road goes on and o....n and on.



E A E B7

3. And here and there along the road, welcoming and bright,

E A E B7 E

the lights from home and farmstead pierce the dark Dakota night.

E A E B7

Their brightness shines on others' lives, their welcome's for their own,

E A E B7 E

and I'm somewhere in America, half a world away from home.



+ E - A - E - B7 - E

















E A E B7

4. But, well, you know, I love this life, the endless road's the stage,

E A E B7 E

that music's a fever in the blood, a wild bird in the cage.

E A E B7

You and I let that wild bird fly, its bright dreams to pursue,

E A E B7 E

now I'm somewhere in America, half a world away from you.



E A B7 E

And the road goes on and on and on,

E A B7 E

and the road goes on and o....n and on.



E A E B7

5. Across the North Dakota hills the twilit road unwinds,

E A E B7 E

the setting sun sprays showers of gold across the dark green pines.

E A E B7

The evening shadows change from grey to an ever deepening blue,

E A E B7 E

and I'm somewhere in America, half a world away from you.

E A E B7 A - E

Yes, I'm somewhere in America, half a world away from you.
