Six String Orchestra

Harry Chapin

 DEm
The very day I purchased it I christened my guitar

 AD
As my monophonic symphony six string orchestra 

 DEm
 In my room I'd practice late, and they'd leave me alone

 D
 My mother said, "You're nothin' yet, to make the folks write home."

 F#mEm
I'd play at all the talent nights, I'd finish, they'd applaud

 A
 Some called in muffled laughter, I just figured they were awed

 DEm
So I went up for an encore, but they screamed they'd had enough

 AGAD
or, maybe I just need a group to help me do my stuff

 GD
And so I dream a bass will join me and fill the bottom in

 GDEA
And maybe now some lead guitar so it would not sound so thin

 Bm
I need some drums to set the beat and help me keep in time

 D
And way back in the distance some strings would sound so fine

 GDD7
And we'd all play together like fine musicians should

 GDEA
And it would sound like music and the music would sound good

 Bm
But in real life I'm stuck with that same old formula

Em A Em (individual notes:
 -D-A-F#-D-A
 Me and mmonophonic symphony six string

 D
orchestra

 DEm
I write love songs for my favorite girl and sing 'em soft and slow

 AD
But before I get to finish she says she has to go   

 Em
She's nice and say, "Excuse me, I've got to find a bar

 AGAD
think I need refreshment 'fore I hear you play guitar."

 F#mEm
sent a demo tape I made to the record companies

 BmF#mEA
 Two came back address unknown, one came back C.O.D.

 DEm
Of course I got form letters all sayin' pleasant things

 D
Like suggesting I should find a trade where I would not have to sing

 GD
And so I dream a bass will join me and fill the bottom in

 GDEA
And maybe now some lead guitar so it would not sound so thin

 Bm
I need some drums to set the beat and help me keep in time

 D
And way back in the distance some strings would sound so fine

 GDD7
And we'd all play together like fine musicians should

 GDEA
And it would sound like music and the music would sound good

 Bm
But in real life I'm stuck with that same old formula

Em A Em (individual notes:

 D
orchestra

 DEm
I've been takin' guitar lessons but my teacher just took leave

 AD
It was something about a breakdown or needing a reprieve

 Em
I know I've found my future so I will persevere

 AGAD
And hold on to my dream of makin' music to their ears

 GD
And so I dream a bass will join me and fill the bottom in

 GDEA
And maybe now some lead guitar so it would not sound so thin

 Bm
I need some drums to set the beat and help me keep in time

 D
And way back in the distance some strings would sound so fine

 GDD7
And we'd all play together like fine musicians should

 GDEA
And it would sound like music and the music would sound good

 Bm
But in real life I'm stuck with that same old formula
