Old Hippie

(The Bellamy Brothers)

	  		G  
He turned thirty-five last Sunday  
C                         G  
In his hair he found some gray  
 G 
But he still ain't changed his lifestyle  
C                         D  
He likes it better the old way  
      C                               G  
So he grows a little garden in the back yard by the fence  
         C                           G  
He's consuming what he's growing nowadays in self defense  
         D  
He get's out there in the twilight zone   
     C                              G  
sometimes when it just don't make no sense  
------------------------------------------ 
 G 
He gets off on country music  
C                     G 
cause disco left him cold  
G 
He's got young friends into new wave  
C                       D 
but he's just too damn old  
C 
And he dreams at night of Woodstock 
G  
and the day John Lennon died 
C  
how the music made him happy 
G  
and the silence made him cry  
D 
Yet he thinks of John sometimes 
C                     G 
and he has to wonder why  
 ----------------------- 
        C  
He's an old hippie  
        G  
and he don't know what to do  
        D  
should hang on to the old  
           G  
should he grab on to the new  
         C  
he's an old hippie  
         G  
his new life is just a bust  
         D  
he ain't trying to change nobody  
        C           D         G  
he just trying real hard to adjust  
----------------------------------  
 G 
He was sure back in the sixties  
C                  G 
that everyone was hip  
G 
Then they sent him off to Vietnam  
C              D 
on his senior trip  
C 
And they force him to become a man  
G 
while he was still a boy 
C  
and in each wave of tragedy  
G 
he waited for the joy  
D 
Now this world may change around him  
C                          G 
but he just can't change nomore  
 -------chorus---------------- 
 G 
Well he stays away a lot now  
C                          G 
from the parties and the clubs 
G  
And he's thinking while he's joggin' 'round  
C                                D 
Sure is glad he quit the hard drugs 
C                       G  
Cause him and his kind get more endangered everyday 
C  
And pretty soon the species 
G   
will just up and fade away 
 D 
Like the smoke from that torpedo  
C                 G 
just up and fade away
