[Intro]
C/G


[Verse 1]
C/G 
There's a dance hall there
                        Fmaj7
Where the sick folks go
                                        C/G
Like the olden days on the Barbary Coast
                                        Fmaj7     C/G
There's a barefoot child playing in the rain

You can sell your wares even if they're hot
Fmaj7                                 C/G
In the great bazaar or the parking lot
                                       Fmaj7       C/G
Cause it takes a while to know who to blame
                                            Fmaj7
I might have a taste cause the first one's free
                                          C/G
And the checkout girl's got a thing for me
                                             Fmaj7
And they're both as sweet as the day is the long

Dm                      G  
I don't wanna feel stuck, baby
Dm                   G           C/G 
I just wanna get drunk before noon

C/G Fmaj7 C/G Fmaj7 Dm G C/G


[Verse 2]
C/G                                          Fmaj7
I don't mind my head when there's room to dream
                                               C/G
Feel like Paul Gauguin painting breadfruit trees
                                      Fmaj7         C/G
In some far off place where I don't belong 
C/G                             Fmaj7  
Tried to lose myself in the primitive
                            C/G
In Yosemite like John Muir did
                                             Fmaj7    C/G
But his eyes were blue and mine are red and raw
C/G                                               Fmaj7
'Cause the modern world is a sight to see
                               C/G
It's a stimulant, it's pornography
                                     Fmaj7
It takes all my will not to turn it off

Dm                        G           
I don't want you to feel sad, baby
Dm                 G              C/G
I take everything back, I swear I do


[Outro]
           Dm        C/G      G
Cause once all the friends I had
     C/G     G       Am
Have used me up and left
      Dm
I bet you hang around
              G
I bet you'll hang around awhile

C/G Fmaj7 C/G Fmaj7 Dm G Dm G C/G
