[Am] [F] [G] [Am]		Guitar & harp
[Bm] [G] [A] [Bm]	x 2	+ Bass & drums

[Bm]I wanna tell you 'bout my [G]mountain home
[A]Where all the ladies [Bm]name's are Joan
[Bm]Where husband works back [G]late at night
[A]Hopes are up, for trousers down, with the [Bm]hostess on a business
flight
[Bm]Taxi in a [G]Mercedes drive
[A]I hope that driver's [Bm]comin' out alive
[Bm]The garden it is Dorseted, that [G]lady she's so corseted
[A]She's got 15 ways to [Bm]lead that boy astray
[Bm]Thinks he's one and only, but that [G]lovely she's so lonely
[A]She pumps him full of breakfast, and she [Bm]sends him on his way

Pre-chorus:
What a [Bm]sing, song, dance
What G [G]performance
What a [G]cheap tent show
Oh, [F#]no, no, no, no, no

Chorus:
Then the [Bm]boys light up				)
Then the [G]boys light up				)
Then the [A]boys light up 				) x 2
Then the [Bm]boys light up, light up, light up	)

Break	[Am] [F] [G] [Am]

[Bm]Silently she [G]opens the drawer
[A]Mother's little helper is [Bm]comin' out for more
[Bm]Strategically positioned, [G]before the midday show
That [A]back is arched, those lips are parched, [Bm]repeated blow by
blow
And [Bm]later at the party, where [G]all the MP's rave
'Bout the [A]hummers she's been givin', and the [Bm]money that they
saved
To [Bm]her it is skin lotion, [G]him promotion too
That [A]flat in Surfers' Paradise, [Bm]with the ocean view
