The Twentieth Century Is Almost Over
Steve Goodman, John Prine

G                   C                               G
Back in 1899, when everyone was singing "Auld Lang Syne",
A century took a long, long time for every boy and girl.
Now there's just one thing I'd like to know,
C                          G
Where did the 20th century go?
I'd swear it was here just a minute ago.
All over this world.

G                        C                   G
And the 20th century is almost over, almost over,
G                                                               D
The 20th century is almost over, all over this world,
G                           C             G
All over this world, all over this world.
G                                           D                   G
The 20th century is almost over, all over this world.

Does anyone remember the Great Depression?
I read all about it in True Confessions,
Sorry I was late for the recording sessions,
but somebody put me on hold.
Has anybody seen my linoleum floors,
petroleym jelly and two world wars.
The got stuck in the revolving doors,
All over this world.

Winters getting cooler, summer's getting hotter,
wishing well's wishing for another drop of water,
Mother Earth's blushihng 'cause somebody caught her
making love to the man in the moon.
How you gonna keep 'em down on the farm,
Not that outer space has lost its charm.
Somebody set off the burglar alarm,
And not a moment too soon.

Old Father Time has got his toes a tappin',
Standin' in the window grumblin and a rappin',
Everybody's waiting for something to happen,
Tell me if it happens to you,
The Judgment Day is getting nearer, there it is in the rear view mirror.
If you duck down, I could see a little clearer,
All over this world.
