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
