I SAW IT ON TV written and performed by John Fogerty tab transcribed by Collins Crapo (8 measures of G) They sent us home to watch the show C G Comin' on the little screen A man named Ike was in the White House C G Big black limousine Em G There were many shows to follow Em From Hooter to Doodyville C Though I saw them all, I can't recall D Which cartoon was real Verse 2: The coonskin caps, Yankee bats The Hound Dog man's big start The A-bomb fears, Annette had ears I lusted in my heart A young man from Boston Set sail the new frontier And we watched the dream dead-end in Dallas They buried innocence that year CHORUS: C G F Em I know it's true, oh so true C D7 G 'Cause I saw it on TV Verse 3: We gathered 'round to hear the sound Comin' on the little screen The grief had passed, the old men laughed And all the girls screamed 'Cause 4 guys from England Took us all by the hand It was time to laugh, time to sing Time to join the band Verse 4: But all too soon, we hit the moon And covered up the sky They built their bombs and aimed their guns And still I don't know why The dominoes tumbled And big business roared Every night at 6, they showed the pictures And counted up the score (chorus) Verse 5: The old man rocks among his dreams A prisoner of the porch The light, he said, at the end of the tunnel Was nothin' but a burglar's torch And them that was caught in the cover Are all rich and free But they chained my mind to an endless tomb When they took my only son from me (chorus twice) (tempo slows) D7 G / / / 2 / / / Em / / / C / / / D7 / / / G (T-V)
