NOTHING BUT FLOWERS   TALKING HEADs


C     G      F    C     G     F    ( x 2 )


C             Em
Here we stand like an Adam and an Eve
Dm          G
Waterfalls, the Garden of Eden
C                 Em
Two fools in love, so beautiful and strong
Dm                    G
The birds in the trees are smiling upon them

B                   Em
From the age of the dinosaurs
          B           Em
Cars have run on gasoline
C      Em
Where, where have they gone?
Dm        G
Now, it's nothing but flowers

C 
There was a factory
 G              F            C
Now there are mountains and rivers
G           F
 you got it, you got it
C
We caught a rattlesnake
 G           F            C
Now we got something for dinner
G          F
 we got it, we got it


D
There was a shopping mall
 A            G             D
Now it's all covered with flowers
A              G
 you've got it, you've got it
D
If this is paradise
A         G         D
I wish I had a lawnmower
A                G
 you've got it, you've got it


C      G     F      C      G      F



C         Em
Years ago I was an angry young man
Dm         G
I'd pretend that I was a billboard
C             Em
Standing tall by the side of the road
Dm            G   
I fell in love with a beautiful highway


B                Em
This used to be real estate
         B                Em
Now it's only fields and trees
C      Em
Where, where is the town
Dm        G
Now, it's nothing but flowers

Dm                A
The highways and cars
      Dm            A
Were sacrificed for agriculture
Fm                          C
I thought that we'd start over
Fm                G
But I guess I was wrong


C      G       F          C      G     F

C
Once there were parking lots
G            F       C   
Now it's a peaceful oasis
G           F
 you got it, you got it
C
This was a Pizza Hut
G             F            C
Now it's all covered with daisies
G           F
 you got it, you got it


D
I miss the honky tonks,
A                 G   D   
Dairy Queens, and 7-Elevens
A            G      
 you got it, you got it
D
And as things fell apart
A        G          D
Nobody paid much attention
A             G
 you got it, you got it


D
I dream of cherry pies,
A                G              D
Candy bars, and chocolate chip cookies
A           G
 you got it, you got it
D
We used to microwave
A           G             D        
Now we just eat nuts and berries
A           G         
 you got it, you got it

D
This was a discount store,
A               G       D
Now it's turned into a cornfield
A           G
 you got it, you got it
D
Don't leave me stranded here
A            G           D
I can't get used to this lifestyle
