Where Have All the Average People Gone  Roger Miller

Tab by Mike Gallas
I made this version by combining the and talby1234's from versions. They deserve all the credit. Also Roger Miller!

[C] [C/B] [Am] [G] [F] [G] [C] [C] [C/B] [Am] [G] [F] [G] [C]  
[C]The people in this c[C/B]ity call me count[Am]ry,[G]
[F]Because of how I [G]walk and talk and s[C]mile.
[C]Well I don't mind them[C/B] laughing in the [Am]city,[G]
[F]But the country folks all [G]say I'm citifie[C]d.
[C]The fighting men they [C/B]say that I'm a c[Am]oward.[G]
[F]Because I never p[G]ush no one arou[C]nd.
[C]Gentle people ca[C/B]ll me trouble-[Am]maker,[G]
[F]Cause I'll always fi[G]ght and stand my gr[C]ound.
[F]Funny I don't[Em] fit.
W[Dm]here have all the a[G]verage people [C]gone?
[C]( [C/B]Tab [Am]fro[G]m:[F] h[G]tt[C]p:// )
[C]Some pious people [C/B]point and call me [Am]sinner,[G]
[F]Because to them I've n[G]ever seen the l[C]ight.
[C]Other folks thi[C/B]nk of me as a p[Am]reacher.[G]
[F]I'm just doing wh[G]at I think is ri[C]ght.
[C]The wealthy people [C/B]think that I am a [Am]hobo,[G]
[F]Lean and hungry, wri[G]ting mournful s[C]ongs.
[C]And the poor, poor [C/B]people think I am a rich[Am] man,[G]
[F]But really, I'm just[G] trying to get al[C]ong.
[F]It's funny I don't [Em]fit.
Tell[Dm] me where have all the [G]average people [C]gone?
[C] [C/B] [Am] [G] [F] [G] [C]  
[C]And the government[C/B] has given me a n[Am]umber,[G]
[F]To simplify my bi[G]rth and life and d[C]eath.
[C]And still my woman [C/B]thinks I'm awful impo[Am]rtant,[G]
[F]Like the moon the stars the s[G]ea the sky and [C]breath.
[F]Funny I don't[Em] fit.
W[Dm]here have all the a[G]verage people [C]gone?
[F]Yes, it's funny I do[Em]n't fit.
W[Dm]here have all the [G]average people g[C]one?
Hon[F]ey I don't [Em]fit,
W[Dm]here have all the [G]average people [C]gone?
[C] [C/B] [Am] [G] [F] [G] [C]
