Nothing but Flowers

Talking Heads

 CEm
 Here we stand like an Adam and an Eve
 DmG
 Waterfalls, the Garden of Eden
 CEm
 Two fools in love, so beautiful and strong
 DmG
 The birds in the trees are smiling upon them

 BEm
 From the age of the dinosaurs
 BEm
Cars have run on gasoline
 CEm
 Where, where have they gone?
 DmG
 Now, it's nothing but flowers

 C
 There was a factory
 GFC
Now there are mountains and rivers
 GF
  you got it, you got it
 C
 We caught a rattlesnake
 GFC
Now we got something for dinner
 GF
  we got it, we got it

 D
 There was a shopping mall
 AGD
Now it's all covered with flowers
 AG
  you've got it, you've got it
 D
 If this is paradise
 AGD
 I wish I had a lawnmower
 AG
  you've got it, you've got it

 CGFCGF

 CEm
 Years ago I was an angry young man
 DmG
 I'd pretend that I was a billboard
 CEm
 Standing tall by the side of the road
 DmG
 I fell in love with a beautiful highway

 BEm
 This used to be real estate
 BEm
Now it's only fields and trees
 CEm
 Where, where is the town
 DmG
 Now, it's nothing but flowers

 DmA
 The highways and cars
 DmA
Were sacrificed for agriculture
 FmC
 I thought that we'd start over
 FmG
 But I guess I was wrong

 CGFCGF
 C
 Once there were parking lots
 GFC
 Now it's a peaceful oasis
 GF
  you got it, you got it
 C
 This was a Pizza Hut
 GFC
 Now it's all covered with daisies
 GF
  you got it, you got it

 D
 I miss the honky tonks,
 AGD
 Dairy Queens, and 7-Elevens
 AG
  you got it, you got it
 D
 And as things fell apart
 AGD
 Nobody paid much attention
 AG
  you got it, you got it

 D
 I dream of cherry pies,
 AGD
 Candy bars, and chocolate chip cookies
 AG
  you got it, you got it
 D
 We used to microwave
 AGD
 Now we just eat nuts and berries
 AG
  you got it, you got it

 D
 This was a discount store,
 AGD
 Now it's turned into a cornfield
 AG
  you got it, you got it
 D
 Don't leave me stranded here
 AGD
 I can't get used to this lifestyle
