Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Ambulance  Neil Young

[C]Back in the old folky day[F]s
[Am]The air was ma[Em]gic when we play[D]ed
[C]The river boat was rocking in the ra[F]in
[Am]Midnight was the t[Em]ime for the ra[D]id
[G]Oh Isabella, Proud Isabella
[Am]They tore you down and plowed you under
[Bm]You're only real with your make[C]up on
[G]How could I see yo[D]u and stay too long
[C]All along the Navaho Trai[F]l
[Am]burnouts stub their [Em]toes on garbage pai[D]ls
[C]Waitresses crying in the ra[F]in
[Am]Will their boyfriends[Em] pass this way agai[D]n?
[G]Oh Mother Goose, she's on the skids
[Am]the shoe* ain't happy neither are the kids
[Bm]She needs someone that she[C] can scream at
[G]And I'm such at heel [D]for making her so bad
[C]I guess I'll call it sickness gon[F]e
[Am]It's hard to say the [Em]meaning to this so[D]ng
[C]An ambulance can only go so fas[F]t
[Am]It's easy to get [Em]buried in the pas[D]t
[C]When you try to make a good thing l[F]ast
[Am]     [Em]     [D]  [G]I saw today, in the entertainment section
[Am]There's room at the top for private detection
[Bm]To Mom and Dad [C]this just doesn't matter
[G]But it's either that [D]or pay off the kidnappers
[C]So all you critics sit alon[F]e
[Am]You're no better than [Em]me for what  you've shown[D]
[C]With your stomach pump and your hook and ladder [F]dreams
[Am]We could get togeth[Em]er for some scene[D]s
[G]Well I'm up in T.O.  keepin' jive alive
[Am]and out on the corner it's half past five
[Bm]But the subways are empty [C]and so are the cafes
[G]Except for the Farmer's Market [D]and I can still hear him sayin'
[C]"You're all just pissin' in the win[F]d
[Am]You don't know [Em]it but you are"[D]
[C]And there ain't nothing like a [F]friend
[Am]Who can tell you you're just [Em]pissin' in the w[D]ind
[G]I never knew a man could tell so many lies
[Am]he had a different story for every set of eyes
[Bm]How can he remember [C]who he's talking to?
G D G(hold)
Cause I know it ain't me and I hope it isn't you
