Why do we never get an answer when we're knocking at the door?
C Cdim G7 C F C Cdim G7 C
There's a thousand million questions about hate and death and war.
F C Cdim G7 C F C Cdim G7 C F
'Cause when we stop and look around us, there is nothing that we need
C Cdim G7 C F C Cdim G7 C
In a world of persecution that is burning in its greed.
F C Eb F Eb D
Ah,--------------------

Ah, ah, ah.
C Cdim G7 F C Cdim G7 C F
Why do we never get an answer when we're knocking at the door?
C Cdim G7 F C Cdim G7 C
Because the truth is hard to swallow, That's what the war of love is for!

F/C C Dm/C C Dm/C C

F C/E G7sus4 C
It's not the way that you say it when you do those things to me,
Dm C/E F C/E G7 C
It's more the way that you mean it when you tell me what will be.
Dm C/E F C/E G7sus4 C
And when you stop and think about it, you won't believe it's true,
Dm C/E F C/E G7 C
That all the love you've been giving has all been meant for you.
G7 C Csus4 C
I'm looking for someone to change my life,
G7 C
I'm looking for a miracle in my life
F/C C F C
And if you could see what it's done to me
G7 C
To lose the love I knew you'd safely lead me through.
Dm C/E F C/E G7sus4 C
Between the silence of the mountains and the crashing of the sea,
Dm C/E F C/E G7 C
There lies a land I once lived in and she's waiting there for me.
Dm C/E F C/E G7sus4 C
But in the gray of the morning, my mind becomes confused,
Dm C/E F C/E G7 C
Between the dead and the sleeping and the road that I must choose.
G7 C Csus4 C
I'm looking for someone to change my life,
G7 C
I'm looking for a miracle in my life
F/C C F G7
And if you could see what it's done to me
C Dm C/E F
To lose the love I knew you'd safely lead me to
C
the land that I once knew
G C
To learn as we grow old the secrets of our soul.
Dm C/E F C/E G7sus4 C
It's not the way that you say it when you do those things to me,
Dm C/E F C/E G7 C
It's more the way you really mean it when you tell me what will be.

Genie in a bottle

Waiting for someone who needs me
Hormones racing at the speed of light

MAGIC CARPET RIDE
Steppenwolf

D D C G G D D C G G
I like to dream, yes I do
Right between the sound machine
On a cloud of sound I drift in the night
Every place she goes is right
Flies far, flies near
To the stars away from here

Well, you don't know what
We can find
Why don't you come with me little girl
On a magic carpet ride

Well, you don't know what
We can find
Why don't you tell your dreams to me
Fantasy will set you free

CHORUS
G
Close your eyes girl
Bb
Look inside girl
C G
Let the sound take you away

Last night I found Aladdin's lamp
So I wished that I could stay
But before the thing could answer me
Someone came and took the lamp away

I looked
Around
A lousy candle's all I found

Well, you don't know what
We can find
Why don't you come with me little girl
On a magic carpet ride

Well, you don't know what
We can see
Why don't you tell your dreams to me
Fantasy will set you free

CHORUS

Seasons in the sun
Terry Jacks

F
Good bye to you my thrusted friend, we`ve known each other since we were
Gm
nine or ten; together we climbed hills and trees,
F Gm C7
learned of love A B C; skinned our harts and skinned our
F Gm
knees. Good bye my friend it`s hard to die, when all the birds are singing in the sky
C7 F
now that the spring is in the air
Gm C7 F
pretty girls are ev'`ry where, think of me and I`ll be there

Gm
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun,
C7 F Eb E
but the hills thet we climb were just seasons out of time.


Goodbye papa plees pray for me, I was the blacksheep of the family,'
you tried to teach me right from wrong, too much wine and too much song,
wounder how I got along.
Goodbye papa it`s hard to die, when all the birds are singing in the sky,
now that the spring is in the air,
little children everywere ,
when you see them I'll be there.

We had joy we had fun we had seasons in the sun,
but the wine and the song like the seasons out of time.

Goodbye Michelle my little one,
you gave me love and helped me find the sun,
and every time that I was down,
you always come around and
get my feet back on the ground,
Goodbye Michelle it's hard to die,
when all the birds are singing in the sky,
now that the spring is in the air,
whit the flowers everywhere,
I wish that we could both be there.

We had joy we had fun we had seasons in the sun
but the stars we could reach were just starfish on the beach
"Every thing was better in the good old days,
when everybody was in pain"

Garden Party
Ricky Nelson

Verse 1

C F C F
I went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends.
C G Am F G7 C
A chance to share old memories and play our old songs again.
F C F
When I got to the garden party, they all knew my name,
C F Dm7 G7 C
But no one recognized me..., I didn't look the same.


CHORUS:
F G C F G C
But it's..., all right now. I learned my lesson well.
F C Dm7 G7 C
You see you.., can't please everyone, so you got to please yourself.


Verse 2

People came from miles around. Everyone was there.
Yoko brought her walrus. There was magic in the air.
And over in the corner, much to my surprise,
Mr. Hughes hid in Dylan's shoes wearing his disguise.

But it's, all right now. I learned my lesson well.
You see you, can't please everyone, so you got to please yourself.

Verse 3

I played them all the old songs, I thought that's why they came.
No one heard the music. We didn't look the same.
I said hello to "Mary Lou", she belongs to me.
When I sang a song about a Honky-Tonk, it was time to leave.

But it's, all right now. I learned my lesson well.
You see you, can't please everyone, so you got to please yourself.

Verse 4

Someone opened up a closet door and out stepped Johnny B. Goode,
Playing guitar like a ring and a bell and lookin' like he should.
If you gotta play at garden parties, I wish you a lotta lock,
But if memories were all I sang, I rather drive a truck.

But it's, all right now. I learned my lesson well.
You see you, can't please everyone, so you got to please yourself.

Horse With No Name

Em D6/9
On the first part of the journey
I was lookin at all the life
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There were sand and hills and rings

The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz
and the sky with no clouds
the heat was hot and the ground was dry
but the air was full of sound

Chorus
Em9 Dmaj9

I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
it felt good to be out of the rain
in the desert you can remember your name
'cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
la la la la lalala la la la la la


After two days in the desert sun
my skin began to turn red
After three days in the desert fun
I was looking at a river bed
And the story it told of a river that flowed
made me sad to think it was dead

chorus

After nine days I let the horse run free
'cause the desert had turned to sea
there were plants and birds and rocks and things
there were sand and hills and rings
The ocean is a desert with it's life underground
and the perfect disguise above
Under the cities lies a heart made of ground
but the humans will give no love

Verse 2

Well it was kinda cold that night
She stood alone on the balcony
Yeh, she could hear the cars roll by,
out on four-fortyone like waves crashing on the beach
And for one des'rate moment there
he crept back in her memory
God it's so painful when something that's so close is still so far to reach. **

(Chorus)

[Am]When I was young, it seemed that [F]lilfe was so [E]wonderful,
a [G]miracle, oh it was [F]beautiful, [F#dim]magical.
And all the [Am]birds in the trees, well they'd be [F]singing so [E]happily,
oh, [G]joyfully, oh, [F]playfully, [F#dim]watching me.


But then they sent me away, to teach me how to be sensible,
logicalm oh, responsible practical.
And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable,
oh, clinical, oh, intellectual, cynical.


{soc}
There are [C]times when all the world's as[C6]leep,
the questions run too [F]deep for such a simple man[Bb] [Dm] [Gm] [Dm]
Won't you [C]please, please tell me what we've [C6]learned?
I know it sounds ab[F]surd. Please tell me who I am.[Bb] [Dm] [Gm] [Dm]
{eoc}


I said, now watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical,
a liberal, oh fanatical, criminal.
Oh, won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're acceptable,
respectable, oh, presentable, a vegetable!

{soc}
At night, when all the world's asleep...
