Capo 2

          A                       D                           A
He turned thirty-five last Sunday and his hair has found some grey
       A                                                         E
But he still ain't changed his lifestyle, he likes it better the old way
      D                            A
So he grows a little garden in the backyard by the fence
        D                              A              E
He's consumin' what he's growin' now-a-days in self-defense
         A                                  D                                 A
He get's out there in the twilight zone sometimes, when it just don't make no sense

Yeah, he gets off on country music, 'cause disco left him cold
He's got young friends and a new way, but he's just too friggin' old
And he dreams at night of Woodstock and the day John Lennon died
How the music made him happy and the silence made him cry
Yeah, he thinks of John sometimes, and he has to wonder why

               D                  A
'Cause he's an old hippie, and he don't know what to do
          E                               A             
Should he hang onto the old, or should he grab onto the new
        D                    A
He's an old hippie, this new life is just a bust
         E                                  D      D/C#  D/B   D/A    A 
He ain't tryin' to change nobody, he's just tryin' real  hard  to   adjust

He was sure back in the Sixties that everyone was hip
Then they sent him off to Viet Nam on his senior trip
And they forced him to become a man while he was still  a boy
And behind each wave of tragedy he waited for the joy
Now this world might change around him but he just can't change no more


Well, he stays away alot now from the parties and the drugs
And he's thinkin' while he's joggin' 'round, sure is glad he quit the hard stuff
'Cause him and his kind get more endangered everyday
And pretty soon the species will just up and fade away
Like the smoke from that torpedo, just up and fade away


Yeah, he's just tryin' real hard to adjust
