          A chord diagramG+G                                       A chord diagramC majorC
I'm gonna rent myself a house in the shade of the freeway

Gonna pack my lunch in the morning, and go to work each day
             A chord diagramG+G              A chord diagramC majorC
And when the evening rolls around,
           A chord diagramG+G                    A chord diagramC majorC
I'll go on home and lay my body down
             A chord diagramG+G                             A chord diagramD MajorD
And when the morning light comes streaming in
                       A chord diagramC majorC  A chord diagramG+G  A chord diagramA minorAm A chord diagramG+G
I'll get up and do it again  Amen
        A chord diagramC majorC  A chord diagramG+G   A chord diagramA minorAm  A chord diagramG+G
Say it again  Amen

A chord diagramG+G
I want to know what became of the changes,
              A chord diagramC majorC
We waited for love to bring
A chord diagramG+G
Were they only the fitful dreams
                A chord diagramD MajorD       A chord diagramC majorC
Of some greater awakening
           A chord diagramG+G                      A chord diagramC majorC
I've been aware of the time going by
                A chord diagramG+G                       A chord diagramC majorC
They say in the end it's the wink of an eye
             A chord diagramG+G                             A chord diagramD MajorD
And when the morning light comes streaming in
                       A chord diagramC majorC  A chord diagramG+G  A chord diagramA minorAm A chord diagramG+G
I'll get up and do it again  Amen

Say it again  Amen

A chord diagramG+G                  A chord diagramD MajorD
Caught between the longing for love
        A chord diagramC majorC                A chord diagramE minorEm    A chord diagramB7B7
And the struggle for the legal tender
          A chord diagramC majorC
Where the sirens sing and the church bells ring
        A chord diagramE minorEm                 A chord diagramC majorC
And the junkman pounds his fender
          A chord diagramG+G                     A chord diagramC majorC
Where the veterans dream of the fight,
      A chord diagramB7B7                   A chord diagramE minorEm
Fast asleep at the traffic light
        A chord diagramA7A7                             A chord diagramG+G         A chord diagramD MajorD
And the children solemnly wait for the ice cream vendor

A chord diagramE minorEm           A chord diagramD MajorD                    A chord diagramC majorC              A chord diagramE minorEm    A chord diagramD MajorD
Out into the cool of the evening, strolls the pretender
              A chord diagramC majorC                A chord diagramD MajorD
He knows that all his hopes an dreams
          A chord diagramG+G
Begin and end there

A chord diagramG+G  A chord diagramC majorC   A chord diagramG+G  A chord diagramC majorC

A chord diagramC majorC                                     A chord diagramG+G
Ah the lovers as they run through the night
        A chord diagramC majorC                             A chord diagramE minorEm
Leaving nothing but to choose off and fight
    A chord diagramD MajorD           A chord diagramG+G                    A chord diagramC majorC
And tear at the world with all their might
          A chord diagramG+G                   A chord diagramE minorEm
While the ships bearing their dreams
A chord diagramG+G           A chord diagramD MajorD
Sail out of sight

A chord diagramD MajorD         A chord diagramG+G
I'm gonna find myself a girl,
                     A chord diagramC majorC
Who can show me what laughter means
           A chord diagramG+G
Then we'll fill in the missing colors in each others
         A chord diagramD MajorD      A chord diagramC majorC
Paint by number dreams
               A chord diagramG+G                    A chord diagramC majorC
And then we'll put our dark glasses on
               A chord diagramG+G                          A chord diagramC majorC
And we'll make love until our strength is gone
             A chord diagramG+G                             A chord diagramD MajorD
And when the morning light comes streaming in
                        A chord diagramC majorC  A chord diagramG+G  A chord diagramA minorAm A chord diagramG+G
we'll get up and do it again  Amen

get it up again  Amen

A chord diagramG+G              A chord diagramD MajorD                A chord diagramC majorC                A chord diagramE minorEm    A chord diagramB7B7
I'm gonna be a happy idiot, and struggle for the legal tender
          A chord diagramC majorC
Where the ads take aim, and lay their claim
       A chord diagramE minorEm                        A chord diagramG+G
To the heart and the soul of the spender
    A chord diagramC majorC                       A chord diagramG+G
And believe in whatever may lie
         A chord diagramB7B7                    A chord diagramE minorEm
In those things that money can buy
       A chord diagramA7A7                             A chord diagramD MajorD
Though true love could have been a contender

A chord diagramE minorEm      A chord diagramD MajorD            A chord diagramC majorC     A chord diagramD MajorD           A chord diagramE minorEm
Are you there, say a prayer for the pretender
    A chord diagramC majorC                        A chord diagramD MajorD                A chord diagramG+G
Who started out so young and strong only to surrender

A chord diagramG+G                       A chord diagramC majorC     A chord diagramCsus4Csus4
Say a prayer for the pretender
A chord diagramG+G                        A chord diagramC majorC     A chord diagramCsus4Csus4
Are you there for the pretender
A chord diagramG+G                           A chord diagramC majorC     A chord diagramCsus4Csus4
Are you prepared for the pretender
A chord diagramG+G                        A chord diagramC majorC     A chord diagramCsus4Csus4
Are you there for the pretender
