Great cover of a classic song by The Talking Heads, on Guster on Ice.  Hope you all enjoy.

Capo 3rd fret
Intro:
G - G - D - C (repeat) 

G			Bm
Here we stand like an Adam and an Eve
Am		  D
A waterfall, the garden of Eden.
G			   Bm
Two fools in love, so beautiful and strong,
Am				D
The birds in the trees are smiling upon them.

F#				F#sus4
From the age of the dinosaurs
                 F#		   F#sus4
Cars have run on gasoline,
G	    Bm
Where, where have they gone?
Am		D
Now, it's nothing but flowers.

Chorus:
G
There was a factory,
D			C		       G
Now there are mountains and rivers!
D		C
(You got it, you got it)
G
We caught a rattlesnake,
D			C		     G
Now we've got something for dinner
D		C
(You got it, you got it)

A
This was a shopping mall,
E		 D		     A
Now it's all covered with flowers

E		  D
(You got it, you got it)
A
If this is paradise,
E	    D   	     A
I wish I had a lawn mower!
E		D
(You got it, you got it)

Interlude:
G - G - D - C (repeat)

G		Bm
Years ago I was an angry young man,
Am		 D
I'd pretend that I was a billboard:
G		    Bm
Standing tall by the side of the road,
Am		  D
I fell in love with a beautiful highway.

F#			F#sus4
This used to be real estate,
	     F#		    F#sus4
Now it's only fields and trees.
G	    Bm			
Where, where is the town?
Am	      D
Now, it's nothing but flowers.

Am			     E
The highways and cars
Am			      E
Were sacrificed for agriculture.
Cm			             G
I thought that we'd start over
	C		   D
But I guess I was wrong.

Chorus:
G
Once there were parking lots
D		C		G
Now it's a peaceful oasis

D		C
(You got it, you got it)
G
This was a Pizza Hut
D	     C			 G
Now it's covered with daisies
D		  C
(You got it, you got it)

A
I miss the honky tonks,
E			      D   A
Dairy Queens, and 7-Elevens.
E		 D
(You got it, you got it)

A
And as things fell apart,
E	     D 		 A
Nobody paid much attention.
E		D
(You got it, you got it)

Interlude:
A - 
A - A - E - D (repeat)

A
I dream of cherry pies,
E			 D			A
Candy bars and chocolate chip cookies
E		 D
(You got it, you got it)
A
We used to microwave
E		   D			A
Now we just eat nuts and berries
E		  D
(You got it, you got it)

A
This was a discount store
E			D	 A
Now it's turned into a cornfield
E		D
(You got it, you got it)
A
Don't leave me stranded here,
E		D		  A
I can't get used to this lifestyle.
