The Man Who Built America Horslips Lyrics And Guitar Chords. Horslips were the original Celtic Rock band. They lasted 10 years, from 1970 to 1980. The done a few reunion gigs over the past few years and released their greatest hits album. I had the privilige of seeing them in Red Island in Skerries, around 1978. My God where has the past 33 years gone ?.

[G]See him driving those [C]golden nails [D]
[G]that hold together the [C]silver bars [D]
That once a day gonna take us [C]to the stars
[D]cos he's the man who built A[G]merica


[G]See him walkin the [C]golden wire [D]
[G]a million miles from his [C]starting place [D]
and see the world reflected [C]in his face
[D]cos he's the man who built A[G]merica


[G]You coloured kids on the [C]border line [D]
[G]and all you golden children [C]of the [D]sun
He's farther to you each and [C]everyone
[D]cos he's the man who built A[G]merica


Chorus
[D]Building them [G]up, your [D]dreams [C]
tell me, who's gonna [G]knock them [D]down [C]
[D]Well he builds them [G]up, your [D]dreams [C]
tell me, who's gonna [G]knock them [D]down [C]
not him, not the man who built A[G]merica

Instrumental Bridge


[G]In every precinct a [C]golden mile [D]
[G]in every doorway stands [C]heart's desire [D]
but see him crouching running [C]through the fire
[D]cos he's the man who built A[G]merica


[G]You kill the rich and you [C]con the poor [D]
[G]You stalk the streets with your [C]45's [D]
but no-one's going to take the [C]man alive
[D]cos he's the man who built A[G]merica
