My Home Town  Tom Lehrer

My Home Town by Tom Lehrer
Verse 1:
I [C]really have a [Am]yen, to [Dm7]go back once a[G7]gain
Back [C]to the place where [Am]no-one wears a [Dm7]frown[G7]
To see once [F]more those super [B7]special just plain [C]folks
In [D7]my [G7]home [C]town[/] [C#dim] [/] [Dm7] [/] [G7]
No[C] fellow could [Am]ignore, [Dm7]that little gi[G7]rl next door
She s[C]ure looked sweet in[Am] her first even[Dm7]ing go[G7]wn
Now there's [F]a charge for what[B7] she used to give f[C]or free
In [D7]my [G7]home [C]town[/] [C#dim] [/] [Dm7] [/] [G7]
Refrain 1:
[C]I re[C7]member [F7]Dan, the druggist on the corner
He was [C7]never mean or ornery, he was [C]swell
He killed his [F7]mother-in-law and ground her up real w[Am]ell
And [C]sprinkled just a [A+]bit over [D7]each banana [G7]split
Verse 2:
Th[C]e guy that tau[Am]ght us m[Dm7]ath, who never[G7] took a bath
Acqui[C]red a certain measu[Am]re of renown[Dm7] [G7]
And after sc[F]hool he sold the [B7]most amazing pictur[C]es
In [D7]my [G7]home [C]town[/] [C#dim] [/] [Dm7] [/] [G7]
Th[C]at fellow was [Am]no fool,[Dm7] who taught us[G7] Sunday School
And n[C]either was our kind[Am]ly Parson Brown[Dm7] [G7]
(line omitte[F]d to avoid prosec[B7]ution under Communi[C]cations Decency Act)
In [D7]my [G7]home [C]town[/] [C#dim] [/] [Dm7] [/] [G7]
Refrain 2:
[C]I re[C7]member [F7]Sam, he was the village idiot
Althoug[C7]h it seems a pity it was so[C]
He loved to bu[F7]rn down houses just to watch the glow[Am]
And [C]nothing could be [A+]done, bec[D7]ause he was [G7]the Mayor's son
Th[C]e guy that too[Am]k a knif[Dm7]e, and monogra[G7]mmed his wife
Then [C]dropped her in the [Am]pond and watche[Dm7]d her [G7]drown
Oh, yes, ind[F]eed, the people t[B7]here are just plain[C] folks
In [D7]my [G7]home [C]town[/] [C#dim] [/] [Dm7] [/] [G]
Ahhhh... memories! Sounds just like my own home-town...
