harmonica:
D, G, C, D, G


    G                 C
Some time ago a crazy dream came to me,
   D
I dreamt I was walkin' into World War Three,
G                       C
I went to the doctor the very next day
   D
To see what kinda words he could say.
               G            C
He said it was a bad dream.

I wouldn't worry 'bout it none, though,
          D
Them old dreams 're only in your head.

harmonica:
G, C, D, G, C, D, G


G                         C
I said, "Hold it, Doc, a World War passed through my brain."
D
He said, "Nurse, get your pad, the boy's insane,"
G                  C
He grabbed my arm, I said "Ouch!"
      D
As I landed on the psychiatric couch,
         G
He said, "Tell me about it."

harmonica:
C, D, G


G                                C
Well, the whole thing started at 3 o'clock fast,
      D
It was all over by quarter past.
      G                      C
I was down in the sewer with some little lover
       D                                 G
When I peeked out from a manhole cover
          C               
Wondering who turned the lights on us.

harmonica:
D, G, C, D, G


G                    C
Well, I got up and I walked around
D
Up and down the lonesome town.
G                       C
I stood a-wondering which way to go,
        D
I lit a cigarette on a parking meter
                       G
And walked on down the road.
         C
It was a normal day.

harmonica:
D, G, C, D, G


G                        C
Well, I rung the fallout shelter bell
      D
And I leaned my head and I gave a yell,
G                             C
"Give me a string bean, I'm a hungry man."
   D                             G
A shotgun fired and away I ran.
                  C
I don't blame 'im too much though,

He didn't know me.

harmonica:
D, G, C, D, G


G                       C
Down at the corner by a hot-dog stand
  D                    G
I seen a man, I said, "Howdy friend,
  C
I guess there's just us two."
D                                    G
He screamed a bit and away he flew.
                C
Thought I was a Communist.

harmonica:
D, G, C, D, G, C, D, G


G                           C
Well, I spied me a girl and before she could leave,
        D
I said "Let's go and play Adam and Eve."
  G                           C
I took her by the hand and my heart it was thumpin'
           D                                G
She said, "Hey man, you crazy or somethin',
C
You seen what happened last time they started."

harmonica:
D, G, C, D, G, C, D, G, C, D, G


G                         C
Well, I seen your Cadillac window uptown
D
And there was nobody aroun',
G              C
I got into the driver's seat
      D                      G
And I drove down 42nd Street
                C
In my Cadillac.
                 D
Good car to drive after a war.

harmonica:
G, C, D, G, C, D, G


G                            C
Well, I remember seein' some ad,
     D
So I turned on my Conelrad.
      G              C
But I didn't pay the Con Ed bill,
       D                          G
So the radio didn't work so well.
             C
Turned on my record player
                            D
It was Rock-A-Day, Johnny singin',

"Tell Your Ma, Tell Your Pa,

Our Loves A-Gonna Grow Ooh-wah, Ooh-wah."

harmonica:
G, C, D, G, C, D, G, C, D, G


      G             C
I was feelin' kinda lonesome and blue,
         D
I needed somebody to talk to.
     G                 C
So I called up the operator of time
D                                  G   C
Just to hear a voice of some kind.

"When you hear the beep
                            D
It will be three o'clock,"

She said that for over an hour

And I hung up.

harmonica:
G, C, D, G, C, D, G


G                               C
Well, the doctor interrupted me just about then,
     D
Sayin, "Hey I've been havin' the same old dreams,
G                                C
But mine was a little different you see.
                 D                                  G
I dreamt the only person left after the war was me.

I didn't see you around."

harmonica:
C, D, G


      G                   C
Well, now time passed and now it seems
D
Everybody's having them dreams.
G         C               D                                 G   C
Everybody sees themselves walkin' around with no one else.

Half of the people can be part right all of the time,
D
Some of the people can be all right part of the time.

But all of the people can't be all right all of the time.
                                    G   C
I think Abraham Lincoln said that.

"I'll let you be in my dreams if I can be in yours,"

I said that.

harmonica:
D, G, C, D, G, C, D, G

end on A G
