...NEW ENGLAND... by Jonathan Richman
-----------------....................

*Released 1976*


Intro:

(Spoken):

(n.C)
 See, I come from Boston;
I'm gonna tell you about how I love New England. It's my favorite place.
I've been all around the world, but I love New England best.
I might be prejudiced, but it's true;
                                    E
I love New England best. Well, now... you know, ladies and gentlemen;
I've already been to Paris, I already been to Rome,
(Da da dum de-dum, de-dum-dum, da-dum-day),
And what did I do but miss my home? (Oh, New England).

Verse 1:

       E        G#m     A    B
I have been out west to Cali-forn',
       E      G#m         A           B
(Da da dum de-dum, de-dum-dum, da-dum-day),
      A                    B
But I miss the land, where I was born.
B         E
 (Oh, New England). I can't help it!

Chorus 1:

      E      G#m         A           B
Da da dum de-dum, de-dum-dum, da-dum-day,
A        B
 Oh, New England,
      E      G#m         A           B
Da da dum de-dum, de-dum-dum, da-dum-day,
B        E
 Oh, New England. Ride awhile now...

Bridge 1:

       E                              B                E
Doddly-doodly-do-do-doo-do-do, doddly-doodly-do-do-doo-do-do.
                                      B               (E)
Doddly-doodly-do-do-doo-do-do, doddly-doodly-do-do-doo-do-do.

Verse 2:

       E (n.C)
I have seen Old Israel's, arid plain,
       E      G#m         A           B
(Da da dum de-dum, de-dum-dum, da-dum-day),
A (n.C)                 B (n.C)
 It's magnificent, but, so's Maine.
B         E
 (Oh, New England).

 Oh, New England,

 Oh, New England. Ride awhile...

                                      B               (E)
Doddly-doodly-do-do-doo-do-do, doddly-doodly-do-do-doo-dum-da-dum-day.

 Oh, New England. Acapella now...

 Da da dum de-dum, de-dum-dum, da-dum-day, oh, New England,
Da da dum de-dum, de-dum-dum, da-dum-day, oh, one more time a-this way;

(n.C)
 Da da dum de-dum, de-dum-dum, da-dum-day, oh, New England,
Da da dum de-dum, de-dum-dum, da-dum-day, oh, New England, go!

 Oh, I love New England,

Da da dum de-dum, de-dum-dum, da-dum-day,
