I Watched It All On My Radio  Lionel Cartwright

I had a [E]six transister when [A]I was a [E]kid,
under my pillow [B]I kept it hid,
When the [E]lights went out and [A]no one could [E]see,
Over the airwaves the [B]world came to [E]me[-], [A]  [-]  [E]  [-]  [B]  [-]  [E]


(verse 2)
I'd go through the stations till I found a game,
I knew how the played by the sounds of their names,
The sluggers hit homers, those pitchers threw smoke,
And I watched it all on my radio,


(chorus)
At the [A]crack of the [E]bat i knew [B]how far it [A]go,
And [E]I watched it all on [B]my radio,  [A]
[E]I watched it all on [B]my radio, [E]


(verse 3)
When the b[E]allgame was over, the r[A]ap up co[E]mplete,
I'd search through the s[B]tatic till I found a beat,
The Be[E]atles and Createns, the Stones and the Birds,
You should have seen all the gr[B]oups that I he[E]ar[-]d,[A]  [-]  [E]  [-]  [B]  [-]  [E]


(verse 4)
And on Saturday night when the skies were all clear,
a station from Nashville sometimes would appear,
The steel guitars and soft southern twang,
The stars of the Grand Ole Opery would sing,


(chorus)
And I h[A]ad a s[E]eat on the [B]very front [A]row,
And [E]I watched it all on [B]my radio,  [A]
[E]I watched it all on [B]my radio,[E]


(bridge)
And [A]right about midnight some [E]preacher came on,
To [B]tell me what's right; To [E]tell me what's wrong,
And [A]there was a test at the [E]sound of the beep,
It was o[E]nly a test the vo[B]ice would re[A]peat,
And the [E]National Anthem would [B]sing me to [A]sleep,


(verse 5)
I had a [E]six transister when [A]I was a [E]kid,
under my pillow [B]I kept it hid,
When the [E]lights went out and [A]no one could [E]see,
Over the airwaves the [B]world came to [E]me,


(chorus)
And I h[A]ad a s[E]eat on the [B]very front [A]row,
And [E]I watched it all on [B]my radio,  [A]
[E]I watched it all on [B]my radio,[E]
