This is not America
[Sh-la-la-la]

A little piece of you,
The little peace in me.
Will die,
For this is not America.

BRIDGE 1:
Blossom fails to bloom,this season.
Promise not to stare,too long.
For this is not a miracle.

There was a time,
A storm that blew so pure.
For this could be the biggest sky,
And I could have,
The faintest idea.

For this is not America.
[Sh-la-la-la]
[Sh-la-la-la]
[Sh-la-la-la]

:: KEY CHANGE - Step Up 1+ ::

BRIDGE 2:
This is not America, no -
This is not -
[Sh-la-la-la]

Snowman melting,
From the inside.
Falcon spirals,
To the ground.
So bloody red,
Tomorrow's clouds.

BRIDGE 3:
A little piece of you,
The little peace in me.
Will die,
For this is not America.

There was a time,
A wind that blew so young.
For this could be the biggest sky,
And I could have the faintest idea.

But his is not America, 
[Sh-la-la-la]
[Sh-la-la-la]
[Sh-la-la-la]

CODA & BRIDGE 4: X2
This is not America, no - 
This is not,
This is not America, no - 
This is not.
(Hold & Fade) x4

[End]

NOTES:
1.  I commenced to undertake a TAB of the 'Extended Version 3' of this song but found the long rambling 
arrangement difficult to TAB.  Moreso, when it's a terrible edit and clumsy insertion of Bowies lyrics.  
Hence, I have deferred and attempted to capture the essence of the original Pat Metheny Group arrangement, 
as depicted on the 'Single' version.
2.  Just to make it more accessible, take note of the UG 'simplify chords' button on the left-hand side. :-R
