D
I don't care if it rains or freezes 
G
as long as I've got my plastic Jesus 
D 	 	 	        A*
sitting on the dashboard of my car 
D
it comes in colors pink and pleasant 
G
it glows in the dark cause its iridescent 
D                       A           D
I'll take it with me whenever I go far 
D
so give me my lady Madonna 
G
dressed in rhinestones and sitting on a 
D                     A*
pedestal of abalone shells 
D
driving 90 but I'm not scared 
G
because I've got my Virgin Mary 
D                       A            D
assuring me that I will never go to hell

D (Plucking D string)

D
And by the way
You know that hope will make you strange
Make you blink, Make you blink
Make you sink
                 G
It will make you afraid of change
Enough to blame the box with the view of the world
                   D
And the walls that fill the frame
I turn it up
But then I turn it off
Because I can't stand
When they start to talk about
    G
The hurting and killing
Whose shoes are we filling
The damage and ruin
And the things that we're doing Gotta
D
We gotta stop
We gotta turn it all off
We gotta rewind
Start it up again
   A                                                                  G

Because we fell across the fall line    Ain't there nothing sacred any more

Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

D
Somebody saw him jump
Yeah, but nobody saw him slip
I guess he lost a lot a hope
And then he lost a grip
             G
And now he's lying in the freeway
In the middle of this mess
Guess we lost another one, just like the other one
D
Optimistic, hypocrite that didn't have the nerve to quit
The things that kept him wanted more
'Til he finally reached the core
A                                                               G

He fell across the fall line     Ain't there nothing sacred anymore
G
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
G       D                   G
All my friends are getting older,
A                 BM
I guess I must be too.
                        G
Without their love and kindness
A
I donít want Iíll do
    G                      D
Oh the wine bottleís half empty
A                     BM
The moneyís all been spent
                            G
Weíre a cross between our parents
      A
And hippies in a tent.

     G                      D
Oh, Love calls just like a wild bird
A                 BM
Itís just another day
                G       C            D
Spring blew my list of things to do away.

G,D,G,D

G      D               G
In a mucked up lovely river
A                   BM
I cast my my little fly
                                G
But I look at that river and I smell it and 
    A
it makes me want to cry, Oh
G                    D
To clean our dirty planet
A                    BM
Now thereís a noble wish
                        G
Now I putting shoulder to the wheel
A 
Cause I wanna catch some fish, Oh
 G                      D
Love calls just like a wild bird
A                 BM
Itís just another day
                G        C           D
Spring blew my list of things to do away.
