Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Barstow   Jay Farrar

Anyone caught speaking Esperanto 
Is thought crazy or headed for jail 
There's peace in the wilds of West Texas 
                     C       G 
Where the sun and the sky prevail 
Don't take notice of the rising waters 
Don't take notice where rivers run dry 
They'll be digging through the landfills 
To find evidence of our great demise 
There's a changing pattern before us 
And the past tells the story quite well 
By the time we make it to Barstow 
                   C          G 
We'll be more than halfway to hell      
Waves of adverts that promise revival 
Trinketware that batters the brain 
The Devil bought the key to Branson 
Drives a backhoe and wears a gold chain 
Now we're living in the ending time frame 
Bets in Reno are all the human race 
Woke up in another test market 
With a new headache filter in place
