C Em
Here we stand like an Adam and an Eve
Dm G
Waterfalls, the Garden of Eden
C Em
Two fools in love so beautiful and strong
Dm G
The birds in the trees are smiling upon them
B Em B Em
From the age of the dinosaurs cars have run on gasoline
C Em C Dm
Where, where have they gone? Now, it's nothing but flowers

C G F C
There was a factory, now there are mountains and rivers
G F
You got it, you got it
C G F C
We caught a rattlesnake, now we've got something for dinner
G F
You got it, you got it
D A G D
There was a shopping mall, now it's all covered with flowers
A G
You got it, you got it
D A G D
If this is paradise, I wish I had a lawnmower
A G
You got it, you got it

C Em
Years ago I was an angry young man
Dm G
I'd pretend that I was a billboard
C Em
Standing tall by the side of the road
Dm G
I fell in love with a beautiful highway
B Em B Em
This used to be real estate, now it's only fields and trees
C Em C Dm
Where, where is the town? Now, it's nothing but flowers
Dm A Dm A
The highways and cars were sacrificed for agriculture
Fm C Fm G
I thought that we'd start all over, but I guess I was wrong

C G F C
Once there were parking lots, now it's a peaceful oasis
G F
You got it, you got it
C G F C
This was a Pizza Hut, now it's all covered with daisies
G F
You got it, you got it
D A G D
I miss the Honky Tonks, Dairy Queens and 7-Elevens
A G
You got it, you got it
D A G D
And as things fell apart, nobody payed much attention
A G
You got it, you got it

D A G D
I dream of cherry pies, candy bars and chocolate chip cookies
A G
You got it, you got it
D A G D
We used to microwave, now we just eat nuts and berries
A G
You got it, you got it
D A G D
This was a discount store, now it's turned into a cornfield
A G
You got it, you got it
D A G D
Don't leave me stranded here, I can't get used to this lifestyle
