I Saw It on T.V.  John Fogerty

[G] [G]  

(Verse 1)
[G]They sent us home to watch the show [C]comin' on the little [G]screen;
[G]A man named ike was in the white house, [C]big black limou[G]sine;
[Em]There were many shows to [G]follow, [Em]from 'hooter' to 'Dooty[G]ville
Though I [C]saw them all, I can't recall [D]which cartoon was real.
[G]The coon-skin caps, yankee bats, the "[C]hound dog" man's big [G]start;
[G]The a-bomb fears, annette had ears, [C]I lusted in my [G]heart.
[Em]A young man from [G]boston [Em]set sail the new [G]frontier,
And we [C]watched the dream dead-end in dallas,
They [D]buried innocence that year.
[C]I know it's [G]true, [D]oh so [Em]true, '[C]cause I [D7]saw it on [G]tv.
(Verse 2)
[G]We gathered round to hear the sound [C]comin' on the little [G]screen,
[G]The grief had passed, the old men laughed, [C]and all the girls [G]screamed
[Em]'cause four guys from [G]england [Em]took us all by the [G]hand,
It was [C]time to laugh, time to sing, [D]time to join the band.
[G]But all too soon, we hit the moon, [C]and covered up the [G]sky;
[G]They built their bombs, and aimed their guns, [C]and still I don't know [G]why
[Em]The dominoes [G]tumbled [Em]and big business [G]roared;
Every [C]night at six, they showed the pictures and [D]counted up the score.
[C]I know it's [G]true, [D]oh so [Em]true, '[C]cause I [D7]saw it on [G]tv.
(Verse 3)
[G]The old man rocks among his dreams, [C]a prisoner of the [G]porch;
[G]"the light," he says "at the end of the tunnel,
[C]Was nothin' but a burglar's [G]torch.
[Em]And them that was caught in the [G]cover [Em]are all rich and [G]free,
But [C]they chained my mind to an endless tomb
When [D]they took my only son from me.
[C]I know it's [G]true, [D]oh so [Em]true, '[C]cause I [D7]saw it on [G]tv.
[C]I know it's [G]true, [D]oh so [Em]true, '[C]cause I [D7]saw it on [G]tv.
