Intro

C G D C G

[G] Anyone caught speaking Esperanto
Is thought crazy or headed for [D] jail
There's peace in the wilds of west Texas
Where the sun and the [C] sky pre[G]vail

[G] Take no notice of the rising waters
Take no notice where the rivers run [D] dry
They'll be diggin through the landfills
To find evidence of [C] our great de[G]mise

[Cadd9] There's a changing pattern before us
And the past tells the story quite [G] well
By the [D] time we make it to Barstow
We'll be more than [C] halfway to [G] hell 

[Cadd9][G] [D]

[G] Waves of adverts that promise revival
Trick it where it batters the [D] brain
The devil bought the key to Branson
Drives a backhoe and [C] wears a gold [G] chain

[G] Now we're living in the unnamed time frame
That's in Reno we're on the hu[D]man race
Woke up in another test market
With a new headache [C] filter in [G] place


[Cadd9] There's a changing pattern before us
And the past tells the story quite [G] well
By the [D] time we make it to Barstow
We'll be more than [C] halfway to [G] hell 

[Cadd9][G] [D]

By the [D] time we make it to Barstow
We'll be more than [C] halfway to [G] hell
