[D]I see the [E]shapes,
[G]I remember from [A]maps.
[D]I see the [E]shoreline.
[G]I see the white[A]caps.
[D]A baseball [E]diamond, [G]nice weather down [A]there.
[D]I see the s[E]chool [G]and the houses where the kids [A]are.
[D]Places to p[E]ark [G]by the fac’tries and [A]buildings.
[D]Restaunts and [E]bar [G]for later in the [A]evening.
[D]Then we come to the [E]farmlands, [G]and the undeveloped [A]areas.
[D]And I have [E]learned [G]how these things work [A]together.
[D]I see the [E]parkway [G]that passes through them [A]all.
[D]And I have [E]learned [G]how to look at these [A]things and I say,
Here's the pattern for the Chorus:

[C]I wouldn’t [G]live there if you [F]paid me.
[C]I couldn’t [G]live like that, [F]no siree!
[C]I couldn’t [G]do the things the [F]way those people do.
[C]I couldn’t [G]live there if you [F]paid me to.

I tabbed this listening to the live version off of The Name of This Band is Talking
so it might be a little bit different in some parts from the album version
