Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords: My Love Is in America (Dolores Keane)
1. Find Dolores singing it on YouTube. Print the lyrics, get out your guitar, sit in front of your computer, play the song, and try out different chords. When you've got one, put the chord symbol on the lyrics.

The song doesn't appeal to me, as it happens, and I haven't even listened to all of it.   

2. I think it's in 4/4. It seems to be in the key of G.    The first chord is a G, the second is a D (on the second note of the last a in "America."

You can expect the following chords if it's in G:

G Am Bm C D Em

3. Once you've got all of Dolores's chords figured out, you will probably have to change the key to suit own voice.

4. Get back to us and tell us how it all works out.
