 GC
She was a level headed dancer on the road to alcohol
 DG
And I was just a soldier on my way to Montreal
 G
Well she pressed her chest against me
 C
About the time the juke box broke
 D
Yeah, she gave me a peck on the back of the neck
 G
And these are the words she spoke

Chorus:
 G
Blow up your T.V. throw away your paper
 DG
Go to the country, build you a home
 G
Plant a little garden, eat a lot of peaches
 DG
Try an find Jesus on your own

 GC
Well, I sat there at the table and I acted real naive
 DG
For I knew that topless lady had something up her sleeve
 GC
Well, she danced around the bar room and she did the hoochy-coo
 DG
Yeah she sang her song all night long, tellin me what to do

(Repeat chorus)

 GC
Well, I was young and hungry and about to leave that place
 DG
When just as I was leavin, well she looked me in the face
 GC
I said You must know the answer, She said No but I'll give it a try
 D
And to this very day we've been livin our way
 G
And here is the reason why

 G
We blew up our T.V. threw away our paper
 DG
Went to the country, built us a home
 G
Had a lot of children, fed 'em on peaches
 DGCG
They all found Jesus on their own
