The man from the television crawled into the train.

And then they shut down the power all along the line,
           D                         F         C
And we got stuck in the tunnel where no lights shine.

Waiting for the end of the world,
G               C   F       G
Waiting for the end of the world.
     Em          G
Dear Lord, I sincerely hope you're comin',

The legendary hitchhiker says he knows where it's at.
G                C      F         G              C
Now he'd like to go to Spain, or somewhere like that,
F         D                      F         C
With his two-tone Bible and his funny cigarettes,

Waiting for the end of the world,
G               C   F       G
Waiting for the end of the world.
      Em         G
Dear Lord, I sincerely hope you're comin',

'Cause you really started something.

                   C               F               G

Waiting for the end of the world.
G               C   F       G     CF
Waiting for the end of the world.
