Broken Parakeet Blues :  Intro - D   A   G   D  A
D   
East of the village and west of the trees
G 
Up on the high ground where the soldiers would stand
D
Cooling themselves in the sulfurous breeze
   A                        G
It seemed like something to lose

D
The houses were filled with flattering hosts
   G
In tight shirts and compliments for soldiers and ghosts
D
Up on the high ground blowing their loads
        A                  G
For the cowgirls left back home

D
How can you say there’s nothing to lose
A
Singing your broken parakeet blues
       G
On the side of the highway lighting the fuse
D                             A
Black like the crows from the cattlecar fumes

D
Yeah, up on the highway near 29 Palms
A
I saw busloads of soldiers rolling along
    G
And people like crows on the side of the road
D                 A
Waving goodbye to lovers and sons

D
The soldiers were boys, there were brown ones and fat ones
A
White ones and cool ones and camouflaged black ones
G
Sweet ones and cruel ones but I didn’t see
D                     A
Anybody I thought had money like me

D
Some were sleeping, some dreaming, some quietly weeping
       A
Out of 29 Palms the buses kept creeping
G
Right through the desert and out to the shore
D              A
29 Palms won’t see ’em no more

D
How can you say there’s nothing to lose
A
Singing your broken parakeet blues
       G
On the side of the highway lighting the fuse
D                             A
Black like the crows from the cattlecar fumes

D
How can you just wave farewell to them
A
Knowing what you know and where you have been
       G
On the side of the highway lighting the fuse
D                   A
Singing your broken parakeet blues

D              A                   D
How can you say there’s nothing to lose
D   A   G   D  A

D   
East of the village and west of the trees
G 
Up on the high ground where the soldiers would stand
D
Cooling themselves in the sulfurous breeze
       A                     G
We all crowed those parakeet blues
