Picture Show
written by John Prine
from the album "The Missing Years"
tabbed 6/18/05
NOTE: I'm sure about most of it, but there are a couple grey areas.  Corrections welcome.

INTRO: G

 G                                   C                      G
A young man from a small town with a very large imagination
                                          G/B                  D
Lay alone is his room with his radio on, looking for another station 
         G                              C               G
When the static from the mouthpiece gave way to the sound below 
                                               D                   G
James Dean went out to Hollywood and put his picture in a picture show
                                               D                     G
James Dean went out to Hollywood and put his picture in a picture show 


CHORUS:
          G 
And it's Oh Daddy get offa your knees 
C                      G
Mama why'd you have to go 
     G/B
Your Darlin Jim is out on a limb 
         D                      G
I put my picture in a picture show   whoa-oh
    D                      G
My picture in a picture show 


Hamburgers Cheeseburger, Wilbur and Orville Wright
John Garfield is the afternoon, Montgomery Cift at night 
When the static hit the mouthpiece it gave way to the sound below 
James Dean went out to Hollywood and put his picture in a picture show 


CHORUS


SOLO (VERSE chords)


A Mocca Man in a wigwam sitting on a reservation 
With a big black hole in the belly of his soul waiting on an explanation 
While the white man sits on his fat can and takes pictures of the navajo 
Everytime he clicks his Kodak pics he steals a little bit of soul
Everytime he clicks his Kodak pics he steals a little bit of soul


CHORUS


SOLO

  G                                 C                      G
A young man from a small town with a very large imagination
