I SAW IT ON TV
written and performed by John Fogerty
tab transcribed by Collins Crapo 

(8 measures of G)

They sent us home to watch the show
       C             G
Comin' on the little screen
A man named Ike was in the White House
C              G
Big black limousine
Em                         G
  There were many shows to follow
     Em
>From Hooter to Doodyville
         C
Though I saw them all, I can't recall
D
Which cartoon was real

Verse 2:
The coonskin caps, Yankee bats
The Hound Dog man's big start
The A-bomb fears, Annette had ears
I lusted in my heart
A young man from Boston
Set sail the new frontier
And we watched the dream dead-end in Dallas
They buried innocence that year

CHORUS:
C            G     F      Em
 I know it's true,  oh so true
C         D7         G
 'Cause I saw it on TV

Verse 3:
We gathered 'round to hear the sound
Comin' on the little screen
The grief had passed, the old men laughed
And all the girls screamed
'Cause 4 guys from England
Took us all by the hand
It was time to laugh, time to sing
Time to join the band

Verse 4:
But all too soon, we hit the moon
And covered up the sky
They built their bombs and aimed their guns
And still I don't know why
The dominoes tumbled
And big business roared
Every night at 6, they showed the pictures
And counted up the score

(chorus)

Verse 5:
The old man rocks among his dreams
A prisoner of the porch
The light, he said, at the end of the tunnel
Was nothin' but a burglar's torch
And them that was caught in the cover
Are all rich and free
But they chained my mind to an endless tomb
When they took my only son from me

(chorus twice)
                                   (tempo slows)
D7 G / / / 2 / / / Em / / / C / / / D7 / / / G
(T-V)

Pretty sure the F is wrong... doesn't sound right.
