E--------B
Half by sea
A
Through the isthmus o'er the cape they're rounding
E-----B
Over land
A----------------------------------------E
Follow the shallow ribbon of the plat
----A------------E
an El Dorado waits
---------B-A-E

to roam this land like Hart and Twain did?
C#m------------------------G#m

B------------------------A
Gold is coated with gold
---------E--------B
on the languid hills
-------------------------A-------------E
where they wait for hours and hours
B-------------------------A---------E----------B
