some of us old farts look for it. It's actually titled "Spanis Pipe Dream" and

 Low E string ---------------

G Gsus G
[G]She was a [G]level headed dancer on the [C]road to alchohol
[G]And [D]I was just a soldier on my way to Montreal[G]
[G]Well, she pressed her chest against me,
DC C7 Csus6
about the time the juke box broke
[C-D]She g[D]ave me a pe[G-Csus6]ck on the back of the [D]neck
and[G-Csus6] these are the w[D]ords she [G]spoke
[G]Blow up your tv, throw away your paper
[G]Go to the [D]country and build you a [G]home
[G]Plant a little garden, [G-Csus6]eat a lotta peaches
Try and find [D]Jesus, on your [G]own
I sat there at the table and I acted real naive
Cause I knew that topless lady, she had something up her sleeve
She danced around the room awhile and she did the hoochy coo
And sing a song all night long, telling me what to do
Blow up your TV, throw away your paper
Go to the country and build you a home
Plant a little garden, eat a lotta peaches
Try and find Jesus, on your own
But I was young and about to leave that place
Just as I was going, she looked me in the face
I said, "You must know the answer",
She said "No, but I'll give it a try."
And to this day, we've been living our way,
here is the reason why
We blew up the TV, threw away the paper
Went to the country, built us a home
Had a lotta children, fed them on peaches
They all found Jesus, on their own (C) =>>(G)
