C                      F   
Back in the old folky days 
Am           Em             D
The air was magic when we played 
C                                 F
The riverboat was rockin' in the rain 
Am               Em           D
Midnight was the time for the raid
G                           
Oh, Isabela, proud Isabela
Am
They tore you down and plowed you under
Bm                          C 
You're only real with your make-up on 
G                        D
How could I see you and stay too long

C                      F
All along the Navajo Trail
Am                    Em              D
Burn-outs stub their toes on garbage pails. 
C                             F
Waitresses are cryin' in the rain 
Am                    Em             D
Will their boyfriends pass this way again
G       
Oh, Mother Goose, she's on the skids 
Am
Sure ain't happy, neither are the kids
Bm                 C
She needs someone that she can scream at 
G                    D
And I'm such a heel for makin' her feel so bad
C                              F       
I guess I'll call it sickness gone 
Am                   Em              D
It's hard to say the meaning of this song
C                           F 
An ambulance can only go so fast    
Am                Em           D  
It's easy to get buried in the past 
C                           F    Am  Em  D
When you try to make a good thing last


Harmonica:  G  C  G  C  Am     G  C  G  C  Am


G
I saw today in the entertainment section 
Am
There's room at the top for private detection 
Bm              C
To Mom and Dad this just doesn't matter 
G                   D
But it's either that or pay off the kidnapper 
C                        F     
So all you critics sit alone 
Am                   Em                   D
You're no better than me for what you've shown 
C                           F
With your stomach pump and your hook and ladder dreams
Am               Em              D We could get
together for some scenes 


Harmonica:  G  C  G  C  Am  G  C  G  C  Am G             


Well, I'm up in T.O. keepin' jive alive 
And out on the corner it's half past five 
But the subways are empty
And so are the cafes        
Except for the Farmer's Market 
And I still can hear him say 

You're all just p**sin' in the wind 
You don't know it but you are   
And there ain't nothin' like a friend 
Who can tell you you're just p**sin' in the wind 

I never knew a man could tell so many lies 
He had a different story for every set of eyes 
How can he remember who he's talking to 
Cause I know it ain't me, and hope it isn't you
