Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Nothing but Flowers  Talking Heads

[C]Here we stand [Em]like an Adam and an Eve
[Dm]Waterfalls, [G]the Garden of Eden
[C]Two fools in love,[Em] so beautiful and strong
[Dm]The birds in the trees[G] are smiling upon them

[B]From the age of the [Em]dinosaurs
Cars have [B]run on gasol[Em]ine
[C]Where, [Em]where have they gone?
[Dm]Now, it's [G]nothing but flowers

[C]There was a factory
N[G]ow there are mo[F]untains and r[C]ivers
[G] you got it,[F] you got it
[C]We caught a rattlesnake
N[G]ow we got so[F]mething for d[C]inner
[G] we got it,[F] we got it
[D]There was a shopping mall
N[A]ow it's all c[G]overed with fl[D]owers
[A] you've got it,[G] you've got it
[D]If this is paradise
[A]I wish I h[G]ad a lawnm[D]ower
[A] you've got it, y[G]ou've got it
[C]       [G]      [F]       [C]       [G]       [F]   
[C]Years ago [Em]I was an angry young man
[Dm]I'd pretend[G] that I was a billboard
[C]Standing tall [Em]by the side of the road
[Dm]I fell in love[G] with a beautiful highway
[B]This used to be r[Em]eal estate
Now it's [B]only fields and t[Em]rees
[C]Where, [Em]where is the town
[Dm]Now, it's [G]nothing but flowers
[Dm]The highways and c[A]ars
Were s[Dm]acrificed for [A]agriculture
[Fm]I thought that we'd start ov[C]er
[Fm]But I guess I was [G]wrong
[C]       [G]        [F]           [C]       [G]   [F] 
[C]Once there were parking lots
[G]Now it's a pe[F]aceful o[C]asis
[G] you got it,[F] you got it
[C]This was a Pizza Hut
[G]Now it's all c[F]overed with d[C]aisies
[G] you got it,[F] you got it
[D]I miss the honky tonks,
[A]Dairy Queens, and [G]7-El[D]evens
[A] you got it, [G]you got it
[D]And as things fell apart
[A]Nobody pa[G]id much att[D]ention
[A] you got it, y[G]ou got it
[D]I dream of cherry pies,
[A]Candy bars, and c[G]hocolate chip c[D]ookies
[A] you got it,[G] you got it
[D]We used to microwave
[A]Now we just [G]eat nuts and b[D]erries
[A] you got it,[G] you got it
[D]This was a discount store,
[A]Now it's turned [G]into a c[D]ornfield
[A] you got it,[G] you got it
[D]Don't leave me stranded here
[A]I can't get u[G]sed to this [D]lifestyle
