AMERICA,YOU ARE MY WOMAN 
written and performed by Billy Joe Shaver.



Verse 1:
      D                          G
 	 By your way,i've often traveled
      A                      D
 	 Magic mother of the pearl
                                  G
 	 Watched your mysteries unravel
      A                          D    
 	 While each foamy wave uncurled
                                       G
 	 Neath' my soles the sands of freedom
      A                           D
 	 Fertile valleys,moutains high
                                  G  
 	 Blistered by the blazing sunshine
      A                            D 
 	 Mellowed by the moonlight night

 	 
Chorus:
      D                        G  
 	 Mighty measure of the Maker
      A                       D
 	 With your open arms unfurled
                            G 
 	 America,you are my woman
      A                     D  
 	 America,you are my world


Verse 2:
      D                               G  
 	 Many worlds and dreams i've traveled
      A                             D
 	 Sliding softly through the night
                                       G
 	 Scanned through silicones and cycles
      A                            D
 	 Mirrored low your emerald life
                                 G
 	 When my days on earth return to
      A                            D
 	 Dust from whence my body weighs
                                   G
 	 Will my soul could always carry
      A                                     D
 	 Where the Saint's first flight was made


Chorus.
