From: Harlan L Thompson
THE BIG COUNTRY- The Talking Heads
C D F F G (rpt 3 more times)
C D F F G
I see the shapes, I remember from maps
C D F F G
I see the shoreline, I see the whitecaps
C D F F G
A baseball diamond, nice weather down there
C D F F G
I see the schools, and the houses where the kids are
C D F F G
Places to park, by the factories and buildings
C D F F G
Restaurants and bars for later in the evening
Am G F G
Then we come to the farmlands and the undeveloped areas
Am G F G
And I have learned how these things work together
Am G F G
I see the parkways that passes through them all
Am G F G
And I have learned how to look at these things
CHORUS
Bb F Eb
And I say, I wouldn't live there if you paid me
Bb F Eb
I wouldn't live there, ooh, no siree
Bb F Eb
I wouldn't do the things the way those people do
Bb F Eb
I wouldn't live there if you paid me to
I guess it's healthy, I guess the air is clean
And I guess those people have fun with their neighbors and friends
Look at that kitchen and all of that food
Look at them eat, I guess it tastes real good
Am G F F G
They're growin' in those farmlands, then they bring it to the stores
Am G F F G
They put it in their car trunks, then they bring it back home
CHORUS
I'm tired of looking out the window of the airplane
I'm tired of travelling, I want to be somewhere
And it's not even worth talking about those people down there
Bb F Eb
Do do da da da Do do da da da Do do
(keep on doing chorus with various noises)
(eventually hold the Eb a while and end on Bb)
(from More Songs About Buildings and Food, 1978)
