Spanish Pipedream

John Prine

 GC
She was a level headed dancer on the road to alcohol
 DG
And I was just a soldier on my way to Montreal
 GC
Well she pressed her chest against me about the time the juke box broke
 DG
Yeah, she gave me a peck on the back of the neck, 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
 DG
And to this very day we've been livin our way, And here is the reason why

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