The other tab of this was a little confusing so I decided to make a simpler version of it.

Chords used are C F and G7 if playing in C major
but you can use A D and E7 in A major if you find it easier.

remember, its in 3/4 time and starts on an upbeat and all chord changes are at the
of the bar/measure.

Listen to a recording to get the feel of it and the vocal melody. If you can't find one,
is an excerpt of Pete Seeger's version in the Multimedia on MS Encarta and the first
verses are used as the theme to a certain Cannabis-orientated TV show


INTRO: C,  G7,  C

C            C                F             C
Little boxes on the hillside, little boxes made of ticky-tacky
       C            G7               C             G7
Little boxes on the hillside, little boxes all the same
          C                C               F               C
There's a green one, and a pink one, and a blue one, and a yellow one
            C               G7                    G7
     C
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky, and they all look just the same


        C             C           F               C
And the people in the houses, all went to the uni-versity
      C                G7              C                G7
Where they were put in boxes, and they came out all the same
            C                    C            F           C
And there's doctors, and there's lawyers, and business ex-ecutives
            C               G7                    G7
      C
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky, and they all look just the same


         C               C                F               C
And they all play on the golf course, and drink their mar-tinis dry
         C               G7                C              G7
And they all have pretty children, and the children go to school
        C              C                F               C
And the children go to summer camp, and then to the uni-versity
      C               G7              G7                C
Where they are put in boxes, and they come out all the same

        C            C             F                 C
And the boys go into business, and marry and raise a family
   C             G7                    C                 G7
In boxes made of ticky-tacky, and they all look just the same
          C                C               F               C
There's a green one, and a pink one, and a blue one, and a yellow one
            C               G7                    G7
     C
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky, and they all look just the same
