[C]Back in the old folky d[F]ays
[Am]The air was m[Em]agic when we pl[D]ayed
[C]The riverboat was rockin' in the r[F]ain
[Am]Midnight was the [Em]time for the [D]raid
[G]Oh, Isabela, proud Isabela
[Am]They tore you down and plowed you under
[Bm]You're only real with your m[C]ake-up on
[G]How could I see you and s[D]tay too long
[C]All along the Navajo Tr[F]ail
[Am]Burn-outs stub their t[Em]oes on garbage p[D]ails.
[C]Waitresses are cryin' in the r[F]ain
[Am]Will their boyfriends [Em]pass this way a[D]gain
[G]Oh, Mother Goose, she's on the skids
[Am]Sure ain't happy, neither are the kids
[Bm]She needs someone t[C]hat she can scream at
[G]And I'm such a heel f[D]or makin' her feel so bad
[C]I guess I'll call it sickness g[F]one
[Am]It's hard to say the [Em]meaning of this [D]song
[C]An ambulance can only go so [F]fast
[Am]It's easy to get b[Em]uried in the [D]past
[C]When you try to make a good [F]thing[Am] las[Em]t[D]
Harmonica: G C G C Am G C G C Am
[G]I saw today in the entertainment section
[Am]There's room at the top for private detection
[Bm]To Mom and Dad t[C]his just doesn't matter
[G]But it's either that[D] or pay off the kidnapper
[C]So all you critics sit al[F]one
[Am]You're no better than[Em] me for what you've s[D]hown
[C]With your stomach pump and y[F]our hook and ladder dreams
Am Em D We could get
together for some scenes
Harmonica: G C G C Am G C G C Am G
Well, I'm up in T.O. keepin' jive alive
And out on the corner it's half past five
But the subways are empty
And so are the cafes
Except for the Farmer's Market
And I still can hear him say
You're all just pissin' in the wind
You don't know it but you are
And there ain't nothin' like a friend
Who can tell you you're just pissin' in the wind
I never knew a man could tell so many lies
He had a different story for every set of eyes
How can he remember who he's talking to
Cause I know it ain't me, and hope it isn't you
