And catching the flight

G
The children are sleeping well

Again and again, I'm alone, I'm all alone

My love is in america
But it's hard to go out
Just because certain asumptions are made
When your man's not about
When your man's not about

My love is in america
And I'm not so sure
Maybe I rather him here in my arms
And us to be poor
And us to be poor

          D7                   G
Still the money I send home is barely enough
            D7                  G
There's an ocean that keeps us apart
