Committed to Parkview Porter Wagoner
There's a [A]man across the hall who sits [E]staring at the floor
and he thinks he's Hank Williams, hear him [A]singing through the door.
There's a [D]girl in 202 who stops [A]by to visit me
and she [B]talks about her songs and the [E]star that she should be.
There's a [A]lot of real fine talent, staying [D]in or passing through
and for [A]one thing [D]or a[A]nother, they're com[D]mitted to Park[A]view.
[A]There's a girl in 207 coming [E]down on Thorazine
and a superstars ex-drummer, trying to [A]kick Benzedrine.
There's a [D]real fine country singer, who has [A]tried and tried and tried.
They just [B]bought him in this morning, an at[E]tempted suicide.
There are [A]those that never made it, those that [D]did and now are through.
Some [A]came of their [D]own good [A]choosing, some com[D]mitted to Park[A]view.
There's a [A]girl who cries above me, loud e[E]nough to wake the dead.
They don't know what she has taken that has [A]scrambled up her head.
There's a [D]boy just down below me who's the [A]son of some well known.
He was [B]brought in by his mother cause his [E]daddy's always gone.
There's a [A]bum from down on Broadway and a [D]few quite well to do's.
Who have [A]withdrawn [D]from the [A]rat-race and com[D]mitted to Park[A]view.
[A]They wake me 'bout 6.30, just be[E]fore the morning meal.
While they're taking my blood pressure, they [A]ask us how we feel.
And I [D]always say fantastic but there ain't [A]nothing wrong with me.
Then they [B]give me my injection and I [E]go right back to sleep.
And my [A]days are kind of foggy and my [D]nights are dreamy too.
But they're [A]taking [D]good care [A]of me while com[D]mitted to Park[A]view.
