[Verse 1]

G                                   C                    G
They sent us home to watch the show comin' on the little screen;
G                                       C              G
A man named ike was in the white house, big black limousine;
Em                       G       Em                     G
There were many shows to follow, from 'hooter' to 'Dootyville
         C                            D
Though I saw them all, I can't recall which cartoon was real. 

G                                     C                    G
The coon-skin caps, yankee bats, the "hound dog" man's big start;
G                                   C              G
The a-bomb fears, annette had ears, I lusted in my heart.
Em               G      Em               G
A young man from boston set sail the new frontier,
       C
And we watched the dream dead-end in dallas,
     D
They buried innocence that year.

C           G     D     Em     C       D7        G
I know it's true, oh so true, 'cause I saw it on tv.


[Verse 2]

G                                   C                    G
We gathered round to hear the sound comin' on the little screen,
G                                          C                 G
The grief had passed, the old men laughed, and all the girls screamed
Em                    G       Em                 G
'cause four guys from england took us all by the hand,
       C                            D
It was time to laugh, time to sing, time to join the band.

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

C           G     D     Em     C       D7        G
I know it's true, oh so true, 'cause I saw it on tv.


[Verse 3]

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

C           G     D     Em     C       D7        G
I know it's true, oh so true, 'cause I saw it on tv.
C           G     D     Em     C       D7        G
I know it's true, oh so true, 'cause I saw it on tv.
