Am           F                  C         C\B
I took three days to drive down one street
Am        F                   C        C\B
The radio on, tuned to the big fleet
Am         F                      C      
Invisible planes are cracking the concrete
G                F                A    F
That's just what some people say,  Hey Hey

Am            F                    C         C\B
I put down my blanket on Cigarette Butt Beach
Am            F                 G
I saw the old man, he was doing OK
Am                   F
He's making his last stand
       C           Am
On old bottles and cans
G             F            A    F
'Round there, Calistan way, Hey Hey

E             F          C
Used to be sixteen lanes
           B           Bb
Used to be Nuevo Spain
           G
Used to be Juan Wayne
E          F          C
Used to be Mexico
           B           Bb
Used to be Navajo
           G        Am      F    C    C/B
Used to be yippy-ay-I-don't know

Am F G
Am F C G F A F

Am               F                  C     C\B
Went in from the weather when I got wheezy
Am           F              G
I play some pachinko I play pachisi
Am            F                    C
And St. Anne is still making it breezy
       G                  F            A    F
In the valley of tar that once was L.A. Hey Hey

Am          F                           C    C\B
And my best friend he's the king of karaoke
Am             F                    G
He struck up a chord and he took it away
Am         F
Out of the pan
C          Am
And into Japan
G             F             A    F
'Round there, Calistan way,  Hey Hey

Pause.. 2-3-4

E             F          C
Used to be sixteen lanes
           B           Bb
Used to be Nuevo Spain
           G
Used to be Juan Wayne
E          F          C
Used to be Mexico
           B           Bb
Used to be Navajo

God, do i miss Lyle...
_____________________________________________________________
a little secret insiders info about the effect Lyle uses...

The effect he uses is delay. Set the delay time so that it 
repeats with quarter note triplets. He also does manual volume 
swells by using his right hand pinky to fiddle with the volume
knob. So says Lyle himself.
