[Intro]
E  A  C#m  A  2x


[Verse]
E
Quarter in a payphone

Drying laundry on the line
         D
Watching sun tea in the window
       A
Pocket watch for telling time


[Verse]
E
Seems like only yesterday

I'd get a blank cassette
   D
Record the Country Countdown
       A              \    E  A
'Cos I couldn't buy it yet


[Verse]
            E
If we drove all the way to Dallas

Just to buy an Easter dress
            D
We'd take along a Rand McNally
         A
Stand in line to pay for gas


[Verse]
    E
God knows that shifting gears

Ain't what it used to be
             D
I learned to drive that '55
            A
Just like a Queen three on a tree


[Chorus]
E                     A
Hey whatever happened to
             C#m
Waiting your turn
         A
Doing it all by hand
          E                       A
'Cos when everything is handed to you
          C#m                  A
It's only worth as much as the time you put in
   D                                 A
It all just seems so good the way we had it
D                        A         E     A  C#m  A
Back before everything became, automatic


[Verse]
   E
If you had something to say

You'd write in on a piece of paper
          D
And you'd put a stamp on it
           A
And they'd get it three days later


[Verse]
E
Boys would call the girls

And girls would turn them down
        D
Staying married was the only way
   A
To work your problems out


[Chorus]
E                     A
Hey whatever happened to
             C#m
Waiting your turn
         A
Doing it all by hand
          E                       A
'Cos when everything is handed to you
          C#m                  A
It's only worth as much as the time you put in
   D                                 A
It all just seems so good the way we had it
D                        A
Back before everything became,
     E  A       C#m  A
automatic, yeah
    E   A  C#m  A
Automatic


[Verse]
       E
Lets's roll the windows down

Windows with the cranks
     D
Come on let's take a picture
          A~
The kind you gotta shake


[Chorus]
E                     A
Hey whatever happened to
             C#m
Waiting your turn
         A
Doing it all by hand
          E                       A
'Cos when everything is handed to you
          C#m                  A
It's only worth as much as the time you put in
   D                                 A
It all just seems so good the way we had it
D                        A \
Back before everything became,
     E    A     C#m  A
automatic, yeah
    E   A  C#m  A     E~
