What Am I Doin Hangin Around  Monkees

Written by Michael Martin Murphey & Owen Castleman




[C]Just a loud-mouthed Yankee, I went [G7]down to Mexico    [C]

I didn't have much time to spend, a[G7]bout a week or [C]so,

Then I [F]lightly took a[Bb]dvantage of a girl[F] who loved me [Bb]so.    [F]

But I [F]found myself a-[Dm]thinkin' when my [Bb]time

Had [F]come

To [C]go     [G7]        [C7]       [Am7]        [C7]


[F]     What am I [Dm]doin' hangin' '[Gm7]round?

[A]     I should be on that train and [Bb]gone

[Db]     I should be ridin' on that [F]train to San [Dm]Anton'

[Gm7]     What am I [C]doin' hangin' '[F]round?


She [C]took me to the garden and we [G7]took a little walk  [C]

I didn't know much Spanish and there [G7]was no time for [C]talk

Then she [F]told me that she [Bb]loved me, not with words[F] but with a [Bb]kiss   [F]

And [F]like a fool, I [Dm]kept on thinkin' [Bb]of a train

I [F]could not

[Miss]                                    


[F]     What am I [Dm]doin' hangin' '[Gm7]round?

[A]     I should be on that train and [Bb]gone

[Db]     I should be ridin' on that [F]train to San [Dm]Anton'

[Gm7]     What am I [C]doin' hangin' '[F]round?


Well, it's [C]been a year or so, and I [G7]wanna go back again

And if I get the money, well, I'll [G7]ride the same old [C]train

But I [F]guess your chances [Bb]come but once, and boy[F], I sure missed [Bb]mine  [F]

And [F]still I can't stop [Dm]thinkin' when I [Bb]hear

Some [F]whistle

[C]Cryin'   [G7]       [C7]      [Am7]       [C7]



[F]     What am I [Dm]doin' hangin' '[Gm7]round?

[A]     I should be on that train and [Bb]gone

[Db]     I should be ridin' on that [F]train to San [Dm]Anton'

[Gm7]     What am I [C]doin' hangin' '[F]round?


REPEAT CHORUS AND FADE:
[F]     What am I [Dm]doin' hangin' '[Gm7]round?

[A]     I should be on that train and [Bb]gone

[Db]     I should be ridin' on that [F]train to San [Dm]Anton'

[Gm7]     What am I [C]doin' hangin' '[F]round?
