EFFINGTON
BEN FOLDS

Album: WAY TO NORMAL



STANDARD TUNING - CAPO 5 (Scroll down for no capo version)

NO CHORD:
If there's a god,
he's laughing at us
And our football team.

INTRO: C

VERSE 1:
C
Effington could be a wonderful f'ing place
I can see it from the highway
And I'm wondering
         C
Are they f'ing in their yards
f'ing in their cars
f'ing in the trailers and the backroads and the parking lots of Effington
Making my way to Normal, Illinois.

C

VERSE 2:
C
Maybe I should ditch this little white rental on the interstate
And start a new f'ing life...in effington
C
I could change my name, grow a beard, start a family
Or I could just keep on moving on, moving on, moving on, moving on
Not stop 'til I get to Normal.

CHORUS 1:
Am  G    F  C    G    C
I   want to live in Effington
Am  G    F  C     G   C
I   want to die there too.
Am     G  F  C G   C
Please bury me in Effington

Bb
Oh

C
I've got this movie in my mind of Effington
                                      Bb     C
And the soundtrack to it sounds like this

CHORUS 2:
Am  G    F  C    G    C

      G          Am
he's laughing at us

And our football team.

VERSE 3:
C
         And then the people who live in Normal
Can buy the movies that I'll make in Effinghton
That's what normal people do
C
Normal people do it too
Normal people do it too
Normal people do it
People do it
People do it
People do it
