Em7                     A7              Em7          A7 
So we bought a pack of cigarettes, and Mrs. Wagner pies 
   D     C      G        C  C/B Am Am7/6 F 
And walked off to look for America 

C       C/B         Am          C/G            F 
Cathy I said as we boarded the Greyhound in Pittsburg 
C        C/B            Am            Am7 
Michigan seems like a dream to me now

It took me four days to hitch-hike from Saginaw 
   D    G       D         Cmaj7 C 
And I've come to look for America 

Bbmaj7           Bb             C 
Laughing on the bus, playing games with the faces 
Bbmaj7                                     C C/B Am C/G

F                      Fmaj7               C C/B Am C/G Am6 Fmaj7 
I said be careful his bowtie is really a camera 

C         C/B         Am              C/G         F 
Toss me a cigarette I think there's one in my raincoat

We smoked the last one an hour ago 
Em7                  A7      Em7             A7 
So I looked at the scenery,  she read her magazine 
       D   C   G         C  C/B   Am C/G F  
And the moon rose over an open field 

C         C/B       Am             C/G            F 
Cathy I'm lost, I said, though I knew she was sleeping 
    C          C/B          Am           Am7 
I'm empty and aching and I don't know why 
G 
Counting the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike 
        D   G       D        Cmaj7 
They've all come to look for America

They've all come to look for America
