This is a correct, easy to play version of the song. It was originally written in the
key of F, but I transposed it to E.

The song is written in 3/4, so I like to play it picking the root note and then the
bottom strings twice to emphasize the whimsical nature of the melody. I also tried to place
the chords above the right syllable, didn't have a lot of luck struggling with the 
formatting though. Just remember

CAPO ON THE FIRST FRET

INTRO: E,  B7 (strum and hold this note)

         E            E                A             E
Little boxes on the hillside, little boxes made of ticky-tacky
       E            B7               E             B7
Little boxes on the hillside, little boxes all the same
          E                E               A               E
There's a green one, and a pink one, and a blue one, and a yellow one
            E               B7                    E
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky, and they all look
		E
just the same


        E             E           A               E
And the people in the houses, all went to the university
      E                B7              E                B7
Where they were put in boxes, and they came out all the same
            E                    E            A           E
And there's doctors, and there's lawyers, and business ex-ecutives
            E               B7                    E
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky, and they all look just
	E
the same


         E               E                A               E
And they all play on the golf course, and drink their martinis dry
         E               B7                E              B7
And they all have pretty children, and the children go to school
        E              E                A               E
And the children go to summer camp, and then to the university
      E               B7              E                E
Where they are put in boxes, and they come out all the same

        E            E             A                 E
And the boys go into business, and marry and raise a family
   E             B7                    E                 B7
In boxes made of ticky-tacky, and they all look just the same
          E                E               A               E
There's a green one, and a pink one, and a blue one, and a yellow one
            E               B7                    E
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky, and they all look just
 	E
