Home Run King  Gene Clark



W[E]ell I [B]saw it clear today that we were all more than only ref[E]ugees
And the [B]heads of state called out all of their reserves
So they could postpone World War I[E]II
[C#m]I can hear the morning crier yellin read all about it here's the [B]
You are [F#m]either just the newspaper [A]boy or you're [B]either Babe [E]Ruth
[E]Now [B]how could we have been put upon this planet
Fools enough to think that we could [E]be
The [B]first to form a civilized envolvement from the charismatic s[E]ea
[C#m]There's a ten year old in the alley
Throws a hard ball off the wall that is the [B]truth
He knows you're [F#m]either just the newspaper [A]boy or you're [B]either Babe [E]
The home run king
We [B]can all dream up some explicit rationalized dream
Of exactly who we [E]are
[B]While the rockin rolling home run king
Keeps the black madonna sleepin with a s[E]tar
[C#m]Now it doesn't matter how much bread you can spend
So you can hold the center b[B]ooth
You are [F#m]either just the newspaper [A]boy or you're [B]either Babe [E]Ruth
