                      NEIL SEDAKA

INTRO: 
 Eb F Eb F 


VERSE:
  Eb F 
Harbours open their arms to the young searching foreigner
  Eb F 
Come to live in the light of the beacon of liberty
  Bb 
Plains and open skies
  Am Dm 
Billboards would advertise
        F Gm C F 
Was it anything like that when you arrived?


PRE-CHORUS:
  Cm F 
Dream boats carried the future to the heart of America
  Cm F 
People were waiting in line for a place by the river


CHORUS:
  F Am Gm Bb 
It was a time when strangers were welcome here
  F Am Gm C 
Music would play they tell me the days were sweet and clear
           Am D 
It was a sweeter tune
               Bb Bb Bbm 
And there was so much ro-om
       F Bb F C F 
That people could come from everywhere


VERSE:
  Eb F 
Now he arrives with his hopes and his heart set on miracles
  Eb F 
Come to marry his fortune with a hand full of promises
     Bb 
To find they've closed the door
            Am Dm 
They don't want him anymore
        Gm Bb F 
There isn't any more to go around


PRE-CHORUS:
  Cm F 
Turning away he remembers he once heard a legend
       Cm F 
That spoke of a mystical magical land called America


CHORUS:
  F Am Gm Bb 
There was a time when strangers were welcome here
  F Am Gm C 
Music would play they tell me the days were sweet and clear
           Am D 
It was a sweeter tune
               Bb Bb Bbm 
And there was so much ro-om
       F Bb F C F 
That people could come from everywhere


INSTRUMENTAL:
 Eb F Eb F 


CHORUS:
  F Am Gm Bb 
There was a time when strangers were welcome here
  F Am Gm C 
Music would play they tell me the days were sweet and clear
           Am D 
It was a sweeter tune
               Bb Bbm 
And there was so much ro-om
       F Bb F C F 
That people could come from everywhere


INSTRUMENTAL:
 Eb F Eb F 


CHORUS/OURTRO:
  F Am Gm Bb 
There was a time when strangers were welcome here
  F Am Gm C 
Music would play they tell me the days were sweet and clear

There was a time when strangers were welcome here
  F Am Gm C 
Music would play they tell me the days were sweet and clear - FADE OUT
