[Intro]
Eb  Eb  Eb  Eb
 
 
[Verse 1]
Eb                Cm Fm              Bb
 I dreamed I woke up and you were gone
Fm          Bb  Ab              Eb
 I reached out,  but no one was there
Eb/G C                Fm          Bb
   I called your name  and nobody answered
G             C           Fm Bb
 And I wondered : "if I cry,  would you care ?"
 
 
[Verse 2]
Eb  Cm  Fm7                   Bb
        I had said I love you so many times
Fm                Bb                       Ab   Eb
 But they're just words that you hear people say
Eb/G         C            Fm              Bb
 And I never knew just how much I loved you
      G       C  Fm              Bb
Until suddenly,   you'd gone away
 
 
[Verse 3]
Eb   Cm                    Fm          Bb
 Now who'd stand by me the way you did
Fm              Bb          Ab                 Eb
When I was weak  it was you  that made me strong
Eb/G           C                  Fm    Bb
 And you had a way of touching my heart
         G     C               Fm   Bb
Like the words  in a beautiful song
 
 
[Verse 4]
Eb         Cm             Fm7                Bb
 Oh we had good times and   we shared the bad
Fm      Bb                 Ab  Eb
 So I'll take whatever comes
Eb/G               C7                   Fm  Bb
Cause you were the best years of my life
G                    C7 Fm                 Bb
And we shared the cake   and we shared the crumbs
 
 
[Verse 5]
Eb  Cm                     Fm                      Bb
      Then just before the hurt had built up in my heart
     Fm        Bb                            Ab  Eb
To a mountain  that I knew I could never climb
     Eb/G   C7                      Fm      Bb
I woke up, I woke up to a beautiful world,  and you were there
G         C     Fm          Bb
 You were there all the time
 
 
[Chorus]
Eb     Cm   Fm7 Bb  Fm     Bb   Ab  Eb
I love you America, I love you America
Eb/G      C7   Fm        Bb
 And if I sail  a stormy sea
G          C        Fm      Bb
 Please be there to shelter me
Eb     Cm   Fm7 Bb  Fm     Bb   Ab  Eb
I love you America, I love you America
Eb/G          C                Fm              Bb
 So just keep holdin' me close  and I will care
    G                    C             Fm    Bb
And we'll show the world  that what we share
   Eb                C7      Fm7   Bb
Is still the greatest  love affair
Eb  Cm           Fm7     Bb7
   And I love you   America
Fm Bb   Eb
 I love you

                  I dreamed I woke up and you were gone
I reached out but no one was there
I called your name and nobody answered
And I wondered if I cry would you care

I had said I love you so many times
But they're just words that you hear people say
And I never knew just how much I loved you
Until suddenly you'd gone away

Now who'd stand by me the way you did
When I was weak it was you that made me strong
And you had a way of touching my heart
Like the words in a beautiful song

Aw we had good times and we shared the bad
So I'll take whatever comes
Cause you were the best years of my life
And we shared the cake and we shared the crumbs

Then just before the hurt had built up in my heart
To a mountain that I knew I could never climb
I woke up I woke up to a beautiful world and you were there
You were there all the time

I love you America I love you America
And if I sail a stormy sea
Please be there to shelter me
I love you America I love you America
So just keep holdin' me close and I will care
And we'll show the world that what we share
Is still the greatest love affair
And I love you America
I love you
