Old Hippie
by The Bellamy Brothers

G
He turned thirty-five last Sunday
C                         G
In his hair he found some gray

But he still ain't changed his lifestyle
C                         D
He likes it better the old way
      C                               G
So he grows a little garden in the back yard by the fence
         C                           G
He's consuming what he's growing nowadays in self defense
         D
He get's out there in the twilight zone
     C                              G
sometimes when it just don't make no sense

He gets off on country music
cause disco left him cold
He's got young friends into new wave
buts he's just too damn old
And he dreams at night of Woodstock
and the day John Lennon died
how the music made him happy
and the silence made him cry
Yea he thinks of John sometimes
and he has to wonder why

== Chorus ==

        C
He's an old hippie
        G
and he don't know what to do
        D
should hang on to the old
           G
should he grab on to the new
         C
he's an old hippie
         G
his new life is just a bust
         D
he ain't trying to change nobody
        C           D         G
he just trying real hard to adjust


He was sure back in the sixties
that everyone was hip
Then they sent him off to Vietnam
on his senior trip
And they force him to become a man
while he was still a boy
and in each wave of tragedy
he waited for the joy
Now this world may change around him
but he just can't change nomore

== Chorus ==

Well he stays away a lot now
from the parties and the clubs
And he's thinking while he's joggin' 'round
Sure is glad he quit the hard drugs
Cause him and his kind get more endangered everyday
And pretty soon the species
will just up and fade away
Like the smoke from that torpedo
just up and fade away


>>This song sounds best when you alternate between
G and D for the bass on the G-chord; The C and middle
E on the C-Chord; and D and A on the D-chord.  Play it
with "boom chuka" rhythm.

Try it in C. In other words: [C]He turned thirty five last Sunday [F]in his hair they found some [C]gray but he still ain't changed his lifestyle, he likes it better the old [G]way....and so on.
