Living in the Future  John Prine

Jehosaphat the m[G]ongrel cat
[G]Jumped off the roof to[C]day
[C]Some say he fell but I could t[G]ell
He d[D7]id himself aw[G]ay
[G]His eyes weren't bright like they were the night
[G]We played checkers on the tr[C]ain
[C]God Bless his soul he was a to[G]otsie roll
But he's a d[D7]ead cat just the sa[G]me
We are l[C]iving in the fu[G]ture
I'll t[C]ell you how I kn[G]ow
I re[C]ad it in the pa[G]per
[D7]Fifteen years a[G]go
[C]We're all driving roc[G]ket ships
And t[C]alking with our mi[G]nds
And w[C]earing turquoise je[G]welry
And s[D7]tanding in soup li[G]nes
We are [D7]standing in soup l[G]ines
[G]Jake the barber's lonely daughter
[G]Went down to her daddy's s[C]hop
[C]She plugged herself to a bar[G]ber pole
And t[D7]ook a little off the t[G]op
Pr[G]essure on the left. Pressure on the right
P[G]ressure in the middle of the h[C]ole
I'm g[C]oin' to Maine on a for[G]ty foot crane
I'm gonna u[D7]se it for a fishin' p[G]ole
Repeat Chorus:
O[G]ld Sarah Brown sells tickets down
A[G]t the all night picture s[C]how
[C]Where they grind out sex and they ra[G]te it with an "X"
Just to m[D7]ake a young man's pants g[G]row
No [G]tops no bottoms just hands and feet
Sc[G]reaming the posters out o[C]n the street
S[C]trangling the curious an[G]d the weak
We g[D7]ive them what they wanna see[G]
Yeah we g[D7]ive 'em what they wanna se[G]e - O
Repeat Chorus:
