RECORD TIME (33, 45, 78)
written by Steve Key
Performed by Kathy Mattea on "Lonesome Standard Time"
Capo 3
[G]I'm spinning like an old turntable
[C]Three s[Em]peeds, going n[D]owhere fast
I h[G]esitate at the door to the future
[C]Holding [Em]on to my b[D]ittersweet past
[Em]Me and a[D]ll of the p[G]ercolators
[Em]Me and a[D]ll of the r[G]otary phones
[Em]Me and a[D]ll of my v[G]inyl records
[C]Warped and s[Em]cratched and [Am]out of date
[C]33, [Em]45, [D]78[G]
[G]I got friends from the old hometown
[C]We used to w[Em]ork at the h[D]ometown news
[G]They got houses in a couple of cities
[C]I'm still s[Em]inging those h[D]ometown blues
[Em]Me and a[D]ll of the d[G]rive-in movies
[Em]Me and a[D]ll of the a[G]fternoon papers
[Em]Me and the f[D]ree-form r[G]adio
[C]Fading [Em]in and o[Am]ut of date --
[C]33, [Em]45, [D]78[G]
[Em] [D]  
[G]I hear talk about a great depression[Em]
I hear the dr[D]ums of the [G]war machine[Em]
I wonder if [D]I'm s[G]tuck in the past
Or if it [Am]all repeats, just l[D]ike a CD
[G]I'm following the railroad line
[C]Another [Em]job in an - o[D]ther town
[G]I skip around in record time
And [C]try not to [Em]notice the c[D]andle burn down
[Em]Me and [D]all of the R[G]ust Belt workers
[Em]Me and a[D]ll of the [G]hot type printers
[Em]Me and a[D]ll of the f[G]amily farms
[C]Auctioned o[Em]ff and [Am]out of date --
[C]33, [Em]45, [D]78[G]
[Em]oh-[D]oh, the p[G]ercolator[Em]
Oh-[D]oh, the r[G]otary phone[Em]
[D]All of my v[G]inyl records
[C]Warped and s[Em]cratched and [Am]out of date --
[C]33, [Em]45, [D]78[G]
[C]33, [Em]45, [D]78[G]
