[Intro :]

[Verse 1 :]
             G       Am
Well I turned right on First,
C       D
left on White Oak
C                   G
Back to my old neighborhood
G             Am
I saw old Doc Randolph
      C          D
He was mowing his yard
C                                  G
He's kept it up ‘’bout the best he could.
And Evelyn his wife of thirty - two years
She smiled as I drove by
       C                         G
And she waved from her front porch swing.
            G       Am       C          D
And she went back to readin’ her two dollar novel
      C                      G
And playin’ with her wedding ring.

[Verse 2 :]
      G             Am            C            D
A few houses needed paintin’, a few gates were unhinged
      C                            G
But generally the place looked the same.
      G            Am                C    D
The driveways were full of bikes and Buick sedans
       C                      G
Things any good American would claim.
    Em                        D
And all them other lovers that married for cover
          C                         G
They were out for the sacred nightly stroll.
          G                  Am            C          D
They were wishing they were characters in a two dollar novel
C                         G
Wishing for their weight in gold.

[Interlude :]

            G       Am            C       D
So I turned right on White Oak and left on First
C                      G
Out of that old neighborhood
       G            Am
I left Doctor and Mrs.
                C             D
Randolph sipping ice tea on the front porch
C                              G
Wondering if I'd ever come to any good.
          Em                        D
And on a thousand shady streets in a thousand other towns
    C                                    G
Now people, Lord, they're doing just the same.
            G            Am       C       D
They're all living their lives like two dollar novels
      C                            G
And wondering why the world is so insane.
            G          Am          C       D
They're all living their lives like two dollar novels
          C                               G
And wondering why there's nothing left to gain.
