American Soul CHORDS

Blessed are the bullies

For one day they will

Have to stand up to themselvesEm

Blessed are the liars       Em

For the truth can be awkward       Em

INSTRU : Em ( 4 Times )

It’s Emnot a place

This country is Bmto be a soundEm

Of drum and bass

You close your eyes Bmto look aroundEm


Look aroundEm, around

Look aroundBm, it’s a sound Em

Look around, look around

It’s a soundBm


It’sEm not a place

This country is Bmto me a thoughtEm

That offers grace

For every welcBmome that is soughtEm


* YouEm are rock’Bmn’roll

YouEm and I are rockBm’n’roll

YouEm are rockBm’n’roll

CameEm here lookin’ for AmeriBmcan Soul


It’s Emnot a place

This is a dream the wholeBm world ownsEm

The pilgrim’s face

It had your heart to callBm her homeEm


HoldEm on, brother John

Too many mothers weepBming

DreamEm on, brother John

In your dreams you can’t be sleepBming

( REPEAT * )

AmeEmrican, American

INSTRU : Em ( 2 Times )

Put yourEm hands in the air

Hold up the sky

It could be too late

But we still gotta try


ThereEm’s a moment in a life

Where the soul can die

In a person, in a country

When you believe the lie

The lie, the lie, the lie


There's a promEmise at the heart

Of every good dream

It's a call to action

Not to fantasy


The endEm of the dream

The start of what's real

Let it be unity, let it be community

For refugees like you and me

A country to receive us

Will you be my sanctuary

RefuJesus

American Soul LYRICS
Blessed are the bullies
For one day they will
Have to stand up to themselves
Blessed are the liars       
For the truth can be awkward       
INSTRU
It’s not a place
This country is to be a sound
Of drum and bass
You close your eyes to look around

Look around, around
Look around, it’s a sound
Look around, look around
It’s a sound

It’s not a place
This country is to me a thought
That offers grace
For every welcome that is sought

* You are rock’n’roll
You and I are rock’n’roll
You are rock’n’roll
Came here lookin’ for American Soul

It’s not a place
This is a dream the whole world owns
The pilgrim’s face
It had your heart to call her home


Hold on, brother John
Too many mothers weeping
Dream on, brother John
In your dreams you can’t be sleeping
( REPEAT * )

INSTRU
Put your hands in the air
Hold up the sky
It could be too late
But we still gotta try

There’s a moment in a life
Where the soul can die
In a person, in a country
When you believe the lie
The lie, the lie, the lie

There's a promise at the heart
Of every good dream
It's a call to action
Not to fantasy

The end of the dream
The start of what's real
Let it be unity, let it be community
For refugees like you and me
A country to receive us
Will you be my sanctuary
RefuJesus
