D5                      G            A       D 
     I don't mind other guys dancing with my girl.
G A         D        G             A      D
     That's fine.  I know them all pretty well
           Em               A               G               D
     But I know sometimes I___ must get out___ in the light___.
            Em               A                       D
     Better leave her behind___ where the kids are alright.
  A                 D
     The kids are alright.
  A      D       G            A        D
     Sometimes I feel I gotta get away___.
 G A       D         G            A    D
     Bells chime.  I know I gotta get away
           Em              A               G             D
     And I know if I don't___, I'll go out___ of my mind___.

(same pattern, D, Dsus4, A)
The kids are alright.  The kids are alright.
               D
The kids are alright.


///////////////
A* and G* represent an F-barre chord (i.E. xx7655 and xx5433).
Where I have the chord over the middle of a syllable (or in some cases
over underscores at the end of a word), play the chord about an eighth
note behind.  In the section where I have the chords in between words,
strum the chord twice (eighth notes).  Listen to the recording.
