Americas Great National Pasttime

Byrds

 CG
 One of America's great national pastimes is drinking a coke
 FC
 Taking  a smoke   telling a joke
 CG
 One of America's great national pastimes is playing ball
 FC
 Taking it all  and thinking so small
 FC
But the great taste of coke has refreshed players
 GC
The hot and tired the weary and the sore
 FC
But the great taste of coke has refreshed players
 GFC
The hot and tired the weary and the sore
 CG
 One of America's great national pastimes is chocolate fudge
 FC
 Carrying a grudge  bribing a judge
 CG
 One of America's great national pastimes is poisoning rain
 FC
 Acting insane  inflicting pain
 FC
But the great taste of coke has refreshed players
 GC
The hot and tired the weary and the sore
 FC
But the great taste of coke has refreshed players
 GFC
The hot and tired the weary and the sore
 CG
 One of America's great national pastimes is  the worship of speed
 FC
 Planting  the seeds  taking more than she needs
 CG
 One of America's great national pastime is cutting the grass
 FC
 Grabbing some ass living too fast
 FC
But the great taste of coke has refreshed players
 GC
The hot and tired the weary and the sore
 FC
But the great taste of coke has refreshed players
 GFC
The hot and tired the weary and the sore

Well I had an old dog and his name was Blue        
 A7D
Well I had an old dog and his name was Blue

Well I had an old dog and his name was Blue
 A7DDA7D
Betcha five dollars he's a good dog too                      
 DA7D
 Oh Blue chased a possum up a holler limb          
 A7D
Blue chased a possum up a holler limb

Blue chased a possum up a holler limb
 A7D
The possum growled Blue  whined at him
 DBmGADBmGAD
 Bye bye blue   you good dog  you   bye bye blue  you good dog you
 D
 When old Blue died he died so hard
 A7D
He shook the ground in my back yard      

We lowered him down with a golden chain
 A7D
And every link we called his name
 DBmGADBmGAD
 Bye bye blue   you good dog  you   bye bye blue  you good dog you
 D
 My old Blue he was a good old hound
 AD
You'd hear him hollar miles around

When I get to heaven first thing I'll do
 AD
Is grab my horn and call for Blue
 DBmGADBmGAD
 Bye bye blue   you good dog  you   bye bye blue  you good dog you
