Tabbed by Charles Seymour .
  
Fly on a Windshield/Broadway Melody of 1974

Intro: alternating between Em and G

	G                Em     
There's something solid forming in the air,
                G                                                        Em
And the wall of death is lowered in Times Square.
C            Em
No-one seems to care,
           Am                                        Em
They carry on as if nothing was there.

B/G                               G5        
The wind is blowing harder now,
                 Gadd9            Em (VII)
Blowing dust into my eyes.
         B/G                           G5
The dust settles on my skin,
                  Gadd9              Em (VII)
Making a crust I cannot move in
Em(XII)                            Em/maj7                   Em6                         Em/maj7
And I'm hovering like a fly, waiting for the windshield on the freeway.

Instrumental Interlude:  alternating Em and G for many measures, then

F#  G  F#  G

B  C  B  C D Eb D Eb

F                                                   F+
Echoes of the Broadway Everglades,
                 Bbm                 Db               F
With her mythical madonnas still walking in their shades:
F                                                           F+
Lenny Bruce, declares a truce and plays his other hand.
Bbm                                         Db                    F
Marshall Mcluhan, casual viewin', head buried in the sand.
F                      F7                          Bbm   Db                                        Eb
Sirens on the rooftops wailing, but there's no ship sailing.
F                               F7                       Bm                                 Eb
Groucho, with his movies trailing, stands alone with his punchline
Db    F
failing.

(as above except for last line)
Klu Klux Klan serve hot soul food and the band plays 'In the Mood'
The cheerleader waves her cyanide wand, there's a smell of
                      peach blossom and bitter almonde.
Caryl Chessman sniffs the air and leads the parade, he knows
                     in a scent, you can bottle all you made.
There's Howard Hughes in blue suede shoes, smiling at the
               majorettes smoking Winston Cigarettes.
And as the song and dance begins, the children play at home
                 Bb       C           D     
		with needles; needles and pins.
