Old Hippie - The Bellamy Brothers

[G] He turned thirty-five last Sunday, 
[C] In his hair he found some [G] gray
But he still ain't changed his lifestyle, 
[C] He likes it better the old [D] way

So he [C] grows a little garden 
in the back [G] yard by the fence
He's [C] consuming what he's growing
nowa [G] days in self defense
He get's [D] out there in the twilight zone 
Some [C] times when it just don't make [G] no sense

[G] He gets off on country music, 
[C ] cause disco left him [G] cold
He's got young friends into new wave, 
[C] buts he's just too [D] friggin old

And he [C ] dreams at night of Woodstock 
and the [G ]  day John Lennon died
how the [C ] music made him happy, 
and the [G ] silence made him [D] cry
Yea he [Bm]  thinks of John sometimes
and he [C ] has to wonder [G ] why

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

[G] He was sure back in the sixties
[C] that everyone was [G] hip
Then they sent him off to Vietnam
[C] on his senior [D] trip

And they [C ] force him to become a man
while [G ] he was still a  boy
and in [C ] each wave of tragedy
he [G ] waited for the [D] joy
Now this [Bm ] world may change around him
[C] but he just can't change no [G] more

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

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

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