Intro:

Hello Honey, it's me
What did you think when you heard me back on the radio?
What did the kids say when they knew it was their long lost daddy-o?

Em                                  C
Remember how we listened to the radio
             D                    G
And I said `That's the place for me'
E                            C           D              Am
And how I got the job as an FM Jock the day you married me?
          G                          C   
We were two kids and I was was into AM rock
       D                     Em
But I just had to run around
Fmaj7                           C
It's been eight years since I left you babe
D                                Am
Let me tell you 'bout what's gone down

CHORUS
  G              D      Em        Fmaj7
I am the morning DJ on W * O * L * D
C                 G           D/F#            Am7
Playing all the hits for you wherever you may be
G             D                       Em                Fmaj7
The bright good-morning voice who's heard but never seen
C                   G      D/F#       Em7
Feeling all of forty-five going on fifteen

VERSE CHORDS
The drinking I did on my last big gig made my voice go low
They said that they liked the younger sound when they let me go
So I drifted on down to Tulsa, Oklahoma to do me a late night talk show
Now I worked my way back home again, via Boise, Idhao
That's how this business goes

CHORUS

BRIDGE
            Em                        D
I've been making extra money playing high school sock hops
Fmaj7                       C
I'm a big time guest MC
                                   D                                   
You should hear me talking to the little children
         B
And listen what they say to me
            Em                    D
Got a spot on the top of my head, begging for a new toupee
      Fmaj7                              C
And a tire on my gut from sitting on my
            D                 Em
But they're never gonna go away
Em                      D
Sometimes I get this crazy dream
        Fmaj7                C
That I just drive off in my car
 Em                  D                            B                                          
But you can travel on ten thousand miles and still say where you are
Em                              D
I've been thinking that I should quit disk jockeying
    Fmaj7             C
And start that record store
C                D                    Fmaj7            Em
Maybe I could settle down if you'ld take me back once more

REPEAT INTRO
OK Honey, I see
I guess he's better than me
Sure, Old Girl, I understand
You don't have to worry, I'm such a happy man

Em7
W*O*L*D, W*O*L*D, W*O*L, W*O*L, W*O*L*D*D*D

CHORUS CHORDS
I am the morning DJ on K*H*J
Playing all the hits for you Playing them night and day
The bright good morning voice who's heard but never seen
Feeling all of forty-five, going on fifteen
I am the morning DJ on W*O*L*D

For an alternative fuller sound for the intro chords,and also the 1st & last verses, I add the G on the top string.

'Hello,...
