Spanish Pipedream

John Prine

 CF
She was a level-headed dancer on the road to alcohol
 GC
And I was just a soldier on my way to Montreal
 CF
Well she pressed her chest against me about the time the juke box broke
 GC
She gave me a peck on the back of the neck and these are the words she spoke
Chorus:
 CFC
Blow up your T.V. 
 CFC
Throw away your paper 
 GCFC
Go to the country, Build you a home 
 CFC
Plant a little garden, 
 CFC
Eat a lot of peaches 
 GC
Try to find Jesus on your own
 CF
Well, I sat there at the table and I acted real naive
 GC
For I knew that topless lady had something up her sleeve
 CF
Well, she danced around the bar room and she did the hoochy-coo
 GC
Yeah she sang her song all night long, tellin' me what to do

Chorus

 CF
Well, I was young and hungry and a-bout to leave that place
 GC
But just as I was leavin', well she looked me in the face
 CF
I said "You must know the answer." She said, "No but I'll give it a try."
 GC
And to this very day we've been livin' our way and here is the reason why
 CFC
We blew up our T.V. 
 CFC
Threw away our paper 
 GCFC
Went to the country, Built us a home 
 CFC
Had a lot of children, 
 CFC
Fed 'em on peaches 
 GC
And they all found Jesus on their own
