Americas Great National Pasttime  Byrds




















[C]One of America's great national pastimes is [G]drinking a coke
[F]Taking  a smoke   t[C]elling a joke
[C]One of America's great national pastimes is [G]playing ball
[F]Taking it all  and [C]thinking so small
But the [F]great taste of coke has r[C]efreshed players
The h[G]ot and tired the [C]weary and the sore
But the [F]great taste of coke has r[C]efreshed players
The [G]hot and tired the [F]weary and the s[C]ore
[C]One of America's great national pastimes is c[G]hocolate fudge
[F]Carrying a grudge  [C]bribing a judge
[C]One of America's great national pastimes is [G]poisoning rain
[F]Acting insane  i[C]nflicting pain
But the [F]great taste of coke has r[C]efreshed players
The h[G]ot and tired the [C]weary and the sore
But the [F]great taste of coke has r[C]efreshed players
The [G]hot and tired the [F]weary and the s[C]ore
[C]One of America's great national pastimes is  the w[G]orship of speed
[F]Planting  the seeds  taking [C]more than she needs
[C]One of America's great national pastime is [G]cutting the grass
[F]Grabbing some ass l[C]iving too fast
But the [F]great taste of coke has r[C]efreshed players
The h[G]ot and tired the [C]weary and the sore
But the [F]great taste of coke has r[C]efreshed players
The [G]hot and tired the [F]weary and the s[C]ore

Well I had an old dog and his name was Blue
Betcha five dollars he's a [A7]good dog [D]too         [D]      [A7]      [D]
[D]Oh Blue chased a possum up a holler limb [A7]        [D]
Blue chased a possum up a [A7]holler l[D]imb

[D]Bye bye [Bm]blue   [G]you [A]good dog  [D]you   bye bye [Bm]blue  [G]you [A]good dog [D]you

And every link we called [A7]his [D]name
[D]Bye bye [Bm]blue   [G]you g[A]ood dog  [D]you   bye bye [Bm]blue  [G]you [A]good dog [D]you

When I get to heaven first thing I'll do
Is grab my horn and call [A]for [D]Blue
[D]Bye bye [Bm]blue   [G]you good [A]dog  [D]you   bye bye [Bm]blue  [G]you go[A]od dog [D]you
