I SAW IT ON TV – JOHN FOGERTY

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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