[Verse]
Look ahead as we pass, try and focus on it
I won't be fooled by a cheap cinematic trick
It must have been just a cardboard cut out of a man
Top-forty cast off from a record stand

[Chorus]
G G         C C
Walkin' in L. A.
F F           Bb  D
Walkin' in L. A., nobody walks in L. A.
G G         C C
Walkin' in L. A.
F F           Bb  D
Walkin' in L. A., nobody walks in L. A.

[Verse]
I don't know could've been a lame jogger maybe
Or someone just about to do the freeway strangler baby
Shopping cart pusher or maybe someone groovie
One thing's for sure, he isn't starring in the movies.

[Chorus]
G G         C C
'Cause he's walkin' in L. A.
F F           Bb  D

Walkin' in L. A., nobody walks in L. A.

You only see 'em drivin' cars out on the street
G  F F     G  F Eb Eb
Nobody's walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin'
G  F F     G  F Eb Eb
You won't see a kid walkin' home from school

Walkin' in L. A.

[Verse]
Could it be that the smog's playing tricks on my eyes
Or is it a rollerskater in some kind of headphone disguise
Maybe somebody who just ran out of gas,
Making his way back to the pumps the best way he can.

[Chorus]

Walkin' in L. A.
