Washington, D.C.  The Magnetic Fields

The Luckiest Guy on the Lower East Side
69 Love Songs
Tabbed by: Adam James
 W a-s-h i-n-g t-o-n, baby, D.C.!
 W a-s-h i-n-g t-o-n, baby, D.C.!

[G]Washington, D.[D]C.
It's [C]paradise to [G]me
It's [Am]not because it [C]is the grand old [G]seat[D]
Of [Am]precious freedom [C]and democrac[G]y
no, no, [D]no
It's [C]not the greenery [Em]turning gold in f[Am]all
The scenery [G]circling the [D]Mall[D7]
It's [Am]just that's where my [C]baby lives
That's [G]all.
Washington, D.C.!
It's the greatest place to be
It's not the cherries everywhere in bloom
It's not the way they put folks on the moon
No, no, no
It's not the spectacles and pageantry
The thousand things you've got to see
It's just that's where my baby waits for me
 W a-s-h i-n-g t-o-n, baby, D.C.!
 W a-s-h i-n-g t-o-n, baby, D.C.!

Washington, D.C.!
It fits me to a T
It's not the people doing something real
It's not the way the springtime makes you feel
No, no, no
It ain't no famous name on a golden plaque
That makes me ride that railroad track
It's my baby's kiss that keeps me coming back
It's my [C]baby's kiss that [D]keeps me coming [G]back
