If it please the court I've had a lot to say

And it's not always been true

Standing here before you, judge
C G
I make my pledge of truth to you

Verse 2 :

G F
The waves came over the bowsprit
C G
The decks awash with running green and foam
G F
Back there at the wheel I was terrified
C G
Next day we first saw home

My relatives came over on the Mayflower
C G
Landed on the shore almost alone
G F
No that damn traffic today is terrible
C G
And everywhere I look I see people alone

G F
Alone with their heads looking in their hands
C G
Lost in the conversation stare
G F
Walking with their eyes looking at the screen
C G
Talking like they were really there

Instrumental : G F C G

Verse 5 :

G F
I'm lost in this new generation
C G
Left me behind it seems
G F
Listening to the shadow of Jimi Hendrix
C G
"Purple Haze", sounding like TV

Verse 6 :

G F
I stepped on someone's hand laying on the street
C G
Both asleep and dead it may seem
G F
He didn't even move there on the sidewalk
C G
I stood there staring in a dream

Verse 7 :

G F
She came along in her uniform
C G
Stood moving me away with a gentle hand

Dressed in white like a nightingale

Her name was Florence, Florence of the Land
G F C G
(I knew I'd seen her somewhere)

I knew I'd seen her somewhere

But she was busy with him gone

She came with three different brothers

Abraham, Martin and John

I heard a song about that once
C G
And I never knew what it meant
G F
Three stars died in a plane one night
C G
Rock and Roll, the message that was sent

Verse 10 :
G F
I couldn't wrap my head around it
C G
Didn't know what it meant
G F
Standing there on that sandy beach
C G
Watching it turn to cement

Verse 11 :
G F
Now I don't see all the colors
C G
And I might miss some of their beauty
G F
But I do see what I see
C G
And I want to do my duty

Verse 12 :

G F
Enlisted in the Navy at the corner store
C G
They had a recruiting booth
G F
I covered my heart and raised my hand
C G
And swore it was the truth
