***USA - written by Shane MacGowan
from the album "Peace And Love"

USA - As performed by The Pogues


G
When I was young I watched the cars
When I was older I drank in bars
           C                  G
When I was young I chewed the leaves
When I was older I drank with thieves

G
I found a love She gave me dreams
She left me drunk In New Orleans
            C              G
So cold and lonely So all alone
I wished my heart Was made of stone

  C                    G        C            G
I took the cold bright needle I used it as a sword
   C                  G            D             G
My eyes have seen the glory of The coming of the Lord
  C                  G      C                G
I burned across the delta I swam across the ford
   C                  G            D             G
My eyes have seen the glory of The coming of the Lord

When I was a young man Standing on this road
My empty belly An aching hole
An old man said to me "Kid don't you know
That it's the same Wherever you go"

(not too sure about this part...)

G
I gambled in two graveyards I won against the odds
                                          D               G
With the saints And the saviours With the maggots and the gods
G
I cursed the things they showed me I could never see again
                                      D               G
And the howling of the wind at night I wrote upon the rain

G
I found the thing For which I prayed
And came back home To the USA
                C               G
With a heart of stone And now I know
That it's the same Wherever you go
