[VERSE]
C        Am          G    Am
 Well, I found a road and off I sped 
C                 Am            G     Am
 I met a man with no little toe and a real big head 
C         Am          G           Am
 Though I did not speak somehow I said 

[CHORUS]
F              D                 C         Am
 Where are you from? he said the modern age 
F                   D                C       Am   G  Am
 and where are you from? I said the modern age 


C  Am  G  Am 

F  D   C  Am  (2x)  G  Am



[VERSE] same chords (C-Am-G-Am)
On the the shore by the sea that was still lathering 
I met a man in the business of hunting and gathering 
Somehow we understood each otherís blathering 

[CHORUS]
And he said where are you from? I said the modern age 
And where are you from? he said the modern age

[VERSE]
stopped at a light in my car 
I ask the next car how they are 
they say that we are fine and how are you? 
I say that I am fine and thank you 

[CHORUS]
D            F           C        Am
 Iím feeling fine in the modern age 
D          F            C        Am          
 Driving around in the modern age 
D          F            C        Am
 Driving around in the modern age 

D  F  [INTRO 1x]

E-(0)--(0)-----------
B--1----1----1-------
G--0----2----0-------
D--2----2----2-------
A--3----0----x-------
E------------3-------
   C   Am   G(6sus) <-- just a guess at the name
