         D D G D 
Well my parents raised me well, Lord knows I created my own hell
       D A D D 
But I just don't know what else I'm supposed to do


     D D G D 
Yes I can concentrate on a lifestyle that I hate

But when the times are too damn hard, they all know meet down at the bar

And then the bartender says: "Gee, tell me what's it gonna be"
         D A D D 
I say: "Mac, set 'em up, oh here we go again"


                  G G D D

Way Back In The 1960S chords – Incredible String Band

 Intro

 A7 A7 D7 A7 
I was a young man back in the 1960's
           A7 
Yes, you made your own amusements then
      D7 A7 
For going to the pictures
  

             A7 E7 
Well, the travel was hard and I mean
   A7 E7 
We still used the wheel
               A7 D A      
But you could sit down at your table
           D7 A7 
And eat a real food meal


      D A             
But hey, you young people
          D A 
Well, I just do not know
         D A 
And I can't even understand you
                       E7 
When you try to talk slow


 E7 
There was one fellow singing in those days
And he was quite good, and I mean to say that
       D7 A7      
His name was Bob Dylan, and I used to do gigs too
          D7 A7 
Before I made my first million


          A7 E7 
That was way, way back before
    A7 E7 
Before the wild World War Three
       A7 D A 
When England went missing
         D7 A7 
And we moved to Paraguayee


      D A             
But hey, you young people
          D A 
Well, I just do not know
         D A 
And I can't even understand you
                       E7 
When you try to talk slow


 E7 A7 D7 A7 
Well, I got a secret, and don't give us away
                                  D7 A7 
I got some real food tins for my 91st birthday
          
            A7 E7 
And your grandmother bought them
                A7 E7 
Way down in the new antique food store
          A7 D A D7 A7             
And for beans and for bacon, I will open up my door


      D A             
But hey, you young people
          D A 
Well, I just do not know
         D A 
And I can't even understand you
                       E7 
When you try to talk slow

                A7 
Well, I was a young man back in the 1960's

Intro

 A7 A 
I wake up in the early when I see my day walk in
I wake up in the early when I start to begin
I drink up my coffee to drive dreams away
        E7 A 
And I think about leaving but remain for the day

 A E7 
Oh, glory but I just stay blind
  A E7   
Think about my loving, yes, some of the time

  D7/F# A7 
I want to take it easy
          D7/F# A7 
Ain't it hard like they say
           B7 E7 
But I can play

     A/G B7/F# A/G B7/F# 
And most any morning, most any morning
    D           B*             E A7  
I like to be born into my guitar day
 
      A/G B7/F#     
They say it's all butterflies
  A/G B7/F# 
Don't let your dreams get in your eyes
     D                B*
But Orpheus made the sunrise
            E A7 
'Cause he knew how to play

                    D7/F# A7 
Well, she sings so fadey, I called my guitar lady
          E7 A7 
She's a noted writer, I just can't seem to let her be
               D7/F# A7 
And she is my flower, I call her my easy hour
          E7 A7 
She's a low special, and baby that's enough for me


     D7/F# A7 
And it's all right, you're in the graveyard now
     D7/F# A7 
Well it's all right, you're in the graveyard now

        D7/F# A7 
You may weep, you may moan
        D7/F# A7 
You may pass your life so gay
      A7 
But lucky in life, I swear sometimes
  B7 E7 
Surely going to have to meet your leaving day

                           D7/F#                   
Well, she sings like the seashore
                               A7 
Tonight I don't ride on your seesaw
         E7 A7 
I will call up the angels if they have a little word to say

                             D7/F#   
And I think I'll try cloud walking
                                 A7 
It's just my face you see here talking
                    E7 
And it's just the guitar singing
                                A7 
And I have to let her have her way


  E7 D7/F# A7

Log Cabin Home In The Sky chords – Incredible String Band

 **Same chords in instrumental parts**

 Intro (Same tempo as in the lines)

  A D A   ||   A E7   ||   A D A   ||   A D A E7 A  ||


  A D A 
All around this wide country the winter it has now begun
  A E7                                
Now is the time to slip away from the California sun
        A      
To a place where a man can be free as the wind
     D A 
As wild as the huskies' cry
       A D A E7 A  
Now winter is nigh let us fly to my log cabin home in the sky



       A            
With snow piling all round the door
      D A 
And many a log on the stove
             A 
Where the chickadee's singing a comforting song
       E7               
I'll show you it's you that I love
    A          
O let the wolves howl, they won't find us here
       D A 
By a soft oil lamp we will lie
      A D A E7 A  
Now winter is nigh let us fly to my log cabin home in the sky



             A 
Now there comes a time to every man
          D A 
When he must turn his back on the crowd
            A          
When the glare of the lights gets much too bright
          E7 
And the music plays too loud
         A                    
When a man must run from the deeds he has done
    D A 
Recalling those days with a sigh
      A D A E7 A  
Now winter is nigh let us fly to my log cabin home in the sky
