Immigrant Eyes chords - Guy Clark

Guy Clark Lyrics


            Capo 2


G
Oh Ellis Island was swarming     
C
Like a scene from a costume ball      
D
Decked out in the colors of Europe       
C             D                  G
And on fire with the hope of it all
G
There my father's own father stood huddled         
C
With the tired and hungry and scared
D
Turn of the century pilgrims
C            D               G
Bound by the dream that they shared 

They were standing in lines just like cattle
Poked and sorted and shoved
Some were one desk away from sweet freedom
Some were torn from someone they loved
Through this sprawling tower of babel
Came a young man confused and alone Determined and bound for America And carryin' everything that he owned CHORUS G Sometimes when I look C G in my grandfathers immigrant eyes D I see that day reflected and I can't C G hold my feelings inside C I see starting with nothing G and working hard all of his life D So don't take it for granted C D G say grandfather's immigrant eyes Now he rocks and he stares out the window But his eyes are still just as clear As the day he sailed through the harbor And come ashore on the island of tears My grandfather's days are numbered But I won't let his memory die 'Cause he gave me the gift of sweet freedom And the look in his Immigrant Eyes repeat chorus
