The Ballad Of Lucy Jordan chords
Dr. Hook and The Medicine Show 1973 (Shel Silverstein)

Capo II 

D

    D                                  G            D
The morning sun touched lightly on the eyes of Lucy Jordan 
                                    A                  A Asus4 A
In her white suburban bedroom, in a white suburban town 
       D                                      G             D
As she lay there beneath the covers, dreaming of a thousand lovers 
         A               A7             A         A7       D
Till the world turned to orange and the room went spinning round 

       G              D
At the age of 37, she realized she'd never ride through Paris
                                           A   Asus4 A
In a sports car, with the warm wind in her hair 
        D                                 G                D
And she let the phone keep ringing as she sat there softly singing 
       A                    A7               A       A7   D
Pretty nursery rhymes she'd memorized in her daddy's easy chair 

    D                                    G                D
Her husband, he was off to work, and the kids were off to school 
                                   A                A7
And there were oh so many ways for her to spend her day 
          D                             G             D
She could clean the house for hours, or rearrange the flowers 
       A              A7           A         A7      D        
Or run naked down the shady street screaming all the way 

       G              D
At the age of 37, she realized she'd never ride through Paris
                                           A   Asus4 A
In a sports car, with the warm wind in her hair 
        D                                  G                D
And she let that phone keep ringing as she sat there softly singing 
       A                    A7               A       A7   D    D Dsus4 D
Pretty nursery rhymes she'd memorized in her daddy's easy chair 

    D                                 G            D
The evening sun touched gently on the eyes of Lucy Jordan 
                                                                  A    Asus4 A
On the rooftop where she'd climbed when all the laughter grew too loud 
        D                                   G                           D
And she bowed and curtseyed to the man, who reached and offered her his hand 
    A                   A7                  A      A7       D
And led her down to the long white car that waited past the crowd 

       G              D
At the age of 37, she knew she'd found forever as they rode along through Paris 
                          A   Asus4 A
With the warm wind in her hair 
                      G           D                   D Dsus4 D
Ooooohhh yes with the wind in her hair oooooohhhh......

Pencom rules because his "tabs" are just chord charts laid out nicely above the song's lyrics--which makes them easy to sing and strum along to. I check out everything he posts, even when I've never heard the song before, because I've found a few gems that I'd never heard before the first time that I played them, and I was immediately pulled in and the songs almost played themselves. It can be fun and surprising to see how close I actually get to the original recorded version when I finally get around to listening to it--but I've actually got a few favorites that I play almost every time I pickup my guitar, that I don't care if I ever hear the original versions. I figure that I've already made them my own, and people seem to enjoy how I play them, so why bother?
