VERSE 1
********
      Em
I was in a barroom just the other night 
D
Tuning my old guitar 
     Em
When two young girls stood in front of me
    C                   D
And one said, "Hey Grandpa 
    C
You gotta plug in, you gotta synthesize 
    D
You gotta get outta those jeans 
Em
We came here for music tonight 
         C                  D
And they hire us an old has-been
                      Em     D  Em  D
And we want a dance machine!" 


------------------------
VERSE 2
********
      Em
I was far too tired to be angry 
      D
I was too damn broke to be mad
         Em
I said, "Give me a try tonight ladies 
  C                D
I might not be too bad 
         C
You see, every song has a story
       D
If you listen you might just learn
     Em
That life's for the living by everyone
    C                    D
And youth is a flame you burn
                            Em
What you borrow, you must return” 


------------------------
CHORUS
*******
      G                   C
And I sang the songs that Harry wrote 
  G                C
I sang with all my soul 
    G           C
For Annie from America 
        D
And the singing made me whole 
       G                   C
Yes, I sang for the Mister Tanners 
        G               C
For the waitresses with dreams 
        G                 C
For the lost ones and the lonely 
        D
And for all that music means 
                          Em     D  Em  D
There were songs before machines 


------------------------
VERSE 3
********
    Em
And when the night was over
        D
And the room began to clear 
        Em
And the glasses clinked, and the spotlight blinked 
      C                   D
And I reached for another beer
  C
I looked around for the young girls 
         D
But they must have left too soon 
      Em
And I thought that trying to reach those kids 
        C                   D
Is like trying to reach the moon 
                Em     D
Flying a silver spoon 


------------------------
VERSE 4
********
      Em
And I thought those days are over 
        D
And the songs must all be dead
   Em                                            D
Am I the last one singing all the memories in my head? 
    C  
I'd given them my best shots 
        D
And I'd hoped that they could see 
     Em
That what the songs were saying is 
    D
You grow up fast and free 
                         Em
But you can't fight destiny 


Em  D  Em  D  
Em  D  Em  D

CHORUS
*******
      G                   C
And I sang the songs that Harry wrote 
  G                C
I sang with all my soul 
    G           C
For Annie from America 
        D
And the singing made me whole 
       G                   C
Yes, I sang for the Mister Tanners 
        G               C
For the waitresses with dreams 
        G                 C
For the lost ones and the lonely 
        D
And for all that music means 
                          Em     D  Em  D
There were songs before machines

VERSE 5
********
    Em
The clock was chiming midnight 
       D
When I walked out to my car 
    Em
And standing there were the two young girls 
     C              D
So I put down my guitar 
        C
And the one reached up to kiss my cheek 
        D
And the other one held my hand 
         Em
And they said, "We thought you ought to know 
     C                D
It's like a new found land
                Em     D  Em  D
And now we understand"


------------------------
CHORUS
*******
        G                   C
Why you sing the songs that Harry wrote 
    G                  C
You sing with all your soul 
    G           C
For Annie from America 
        D
And the singing makes you whole 
         G                   C
Yes, you sing for the Mister Tanners 
        G               C
For the waitresses with dreams 
        G                 C
For the lost ones and the lonely 
        D
And for all that music means 
                          Em
There were songs before machines
