N.C.

G C C/B
It was the town that made America famous
Am D G The churches full and the kids all gone to hell
G
Six traffic lights, and seven cops
C C C/B
And all the streets kept clean
Am D C G
The supermarket and the drug store and the bars all doin' well
G C C/B
Now they were the folks that made America famous
Am C D G
Our local fire department stocked with short-haired volunteers
G
And on Saturday night, while America boozes
C C C/B
The fire department showed dirty movies
Am C/B Am C/G Am C/G
The lawyer and the grocer seein' their dreams come to life on the movie screen
F D C
While the plumber hopes that he won't be seen, as he tries to hide his fears
G
And he wipes away his tears
Bb A
But somethin's burinin' somewhere
B G
DOES ANYBODY CARE?
G C C/B
We were the kids that made America famous
Am D G
The kind of kids that long since drove our parents to despair
G
We were lazy long-hairs droppin' out
C C C/B
Lost, confused, and coppin' out
Am D
Convinced our futures were in doubt
C G
And tryin' not to care
G C C/B
We lived in the house that made America famous
Am C D G
It was a run-down slum, the shame of all the decent folks in town
G
We're hippies and some welfare cases
C C C/B
Crowded families of cold, black faces
Am C/B Am
Cramped inside some cracked old boards
C/G Am C/G
The best that we all could afford
F D C
But still too fine for the rich landlord to ever tear it down
G
And we could hear the sound
Bb A
Of somethin' burnin' somewhere
B G
IS ANYBODY THERE?
G C C/B
We all lived the life that made America famous
Am D G
Our cops would make a point to shadow us around our town
G C C C/B
And we love children put a swastika on the bright red firehouse door
Am D C G
America, the beautiful, it makes a body proud
G C C/B
And then came the night that made America famous
Am C D G
Was it carelessness or someone's sick idea of a joke?
G C C C/B
In the tinder-box trap we hippies lived in someone struck a spark
Am C/B Am
At first I thought that I was dreamin'
C/G Am C/G
Then I saw the first flames gleamin'
F D
And heard the sound of children screamin'
C G
Comin' through the smoke
Bb A
And somethin's burnin' somewhere
B G
DOES ANYBODY CARE?
G C C/B
Oh, it was the fire that made America famous
Am D G
The sirens wailed and the firemen stumbled sleepin' from their homes
G
And when the plumber yelled, "C'mon, let's go!"
C C C/B
They saw what was burnin' and said, "Take it slow"
Am
"Let 'em sweat a little"
D
"They'll never know"
C
"And besides, we just cleaned the chrome"
N.C. G
Said the plumber, "Then I'm goin' alone"
G
Well he rolled on up in the fire truck
Am
And raised the ladder to the ledge
C C/B Am D
While me and my girl and a couple of kids were clinging like bats to the edge
G
We staggered to salvation
C C C/B
Collapsed on the street
Am D
And I never thought that a fat man's face
C G
Would ever look so sweet
G C C/B
I shook his hand in the scene that made America famous
Am D G
And he smiled from the heart that made America great
G C C C/B
We spent the rest of that night in the home of this man that we'd never known before
Am D C G
It's funny; when you get that close, it's kind of hard to hate
G C C/B
I went to sleep with the hope that made America famous
Am C D G
I had the kind of a dream that maybe they're still trying to teach in school
G C C/B
O' the America that made America famous
Am C/B Am
And of the people who just might understand
C/G Am C/G
That how together, yes we can
F
Create a country better than
D
The one we have made of this land
F
We have the choice
F
To make each man
D
Who dares to dream
D
Reachin' out his hand
C G
A prophet or just a crazy damn dreamer or a fraud
C G
Yes, a crazy fraud
Bb A
And somethin's burnin' somewhere
B G
DOES ANYBODY CARE?
G
IS ANYBODY THERE?
G
IS ANYBODY THERE?????
