Quarter in a payphone

Drying laundry on the line

If we drove all the way to Dallas

Just to buy an Easter dress
            Bb
We'd take along a Rand McNally
         F
Stand in line to pay for gas

    C
God knows that shifting gears

Ain't what it used to be

Waiting your turn
           F
Doing it all by hand
          C                         F
'Cos when everything is handed to you
            Am                    F
It's only worth as much as the time you put in

It all just seems so good the way we had it
Bb                        F         C
Back before everything became, Automatic

F Am F

   C
If you had something to say

You'd write in on a piece of paper
          Bb
And you'd put a stamp on it
           F
And they'd get it three days later

C
Boys would call the girls

And girls would turn them down

Staying married was the only way

To work your problems out

It all just seems so good the way we had it
Bb                        F         C       F   Am F
Back before everything became, Automatic, yeah
    C     F Am F
Automatic

       C
Lets's roll the windows down

Windows with the cranks
     Bb
Come on let's take a picture
    F
The kind you gotta shake

C                       F
Hey whatever happened to
               Am
Waiting your turn
           F
Doing it all by hand
          C                         F
'Cos when everything is handed to you
            Am                    F
It's only worth as much as the time you put in
