America - My Dear: guitar chords

Em
Here in the dawn
As I walk through this dream
As I have done since ages now gone
         Am
Shall I read you the letter
                                        Em
They sent postmarked from somewhere out here
        Am
It's in Latin, I think, I don't know
                    Em
Can you help me, my dear
 C               D           Em
Please, can you help me, my dear

Near to their bed (they never sleep)
They sit sipping their tea, watch the sea
Move the sand through their heads
(sit in their chairs by the bay)

       Am
Did I show you the marks on the wall
                     Em
Left by captains now dead (house out on the cove)
          Am
They fell fighting for peace in their lives
            Em
Or so it is said (still nobody seems to be here)
C                D           Em
Please, can you help me, my dear
C                D           Em
Please, can you help me, my dear

Bm
You can't miss it
                     Em
A blue forest on a green sky
Bm
You must risk it
                       Am
Don't ignore us if you want us to
      Bm            Em
If we want us to survive

Em
Where will I be (can't you help me to find my way)
After watching them walking the pier
At the mouth of the sea (I've been lost for so long)
           Am
They're in love with the news
                                    Em
And don't show if they're living in fear
(still nobody seems to be here)
         Am
They eat ice cream alone
                                  Em
Watch the waves at the end of the pier
(ah, nobody seems to hear)
C               D           Em
Please, can you help me, my dear
C               D           Em
Please, can you help me, my dear
