Five Years

G                                 F#m
 Pushing thru' the market square
Em  C
 So many mother sighing
A
 News had just come over
        C                         G Am
 We had five years left to cry in

G                        F#m
 News guy wept and told us
Em  C
 Earth was really dying
A
 Cried so much, his face was wet
        C                     G Am
 Then I knew he was not lying.

 G Am    G
 I heard telephones, opera house, favorite melodies
   Bm  Em
 I saw boys, toys, electric irons and T.V's
    A
 My brain hurt like a ware house, it had no room to spare
           C
 I had to cram so many things to store ev'ry thing in there
                 Am
 And all the fat skinny people
C                       Am
 And all the tall short people
C              G  Am G
 And all the nobody  people
C                G  Am D7
 And all the somebody  people

                                  Am       C    G Am
 I never thought I'd need so many people
G                               F#m
 A girl my age went off her head
Em  C
 Hit some tiny children
A
 If the black had not pulled her off
        C                         G Am
 I think she would have killed them

G                          F#m
 A soldier with a broken arm
Em  C
 Fixed his state to the wheels of a Cadillac
A
 A cop knelt and kissed the feet of a priest
        C                         G Am
 And a queer threw up at at the sight of that

G                                         F#m
 I think I saw you in an ice cream parlour
Em
 Drinking milkshakes cold and long
A
 Smiling and waving and looking so fine
C
 Don't think you knew you were in this song

     G  Am  G
 And it was cold, and it rained, so I felt like an actor
 F#m   Em
 And I thought of Ma, and I wanted to get back there
      A
 Your face, Your race, the way that you talk
   C                                                G  Am
 I kiss you, you're beautiful, I want you to walk. We got

      G                          Bm
      Five years stuck on my eyes
      Em
      Five years what a surprise we got
      A
      Five years my brain hurts a lot
      C
      Five years that's all we got we've got
