   G             D                   C             (G      D)
Oh beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain,

    G               D          A7              (D      D7)
For purple mountain majesties above the fruited plain,

 G      (D    D7)     C                (G     G7)
America, America! God shed His grace on thee,

    C                   G               (C      D7)     G
And crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea.

*Each chord gets four counts or one time through the strumming pattern.
**Two chords in parentheses split a measure, in this case each chord gets two counts.
