Capo VII

[Intro]
A#  D#  Gm  D#  2x


[Verse]
A#
Quarter in a payphone

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


[Verse]
A#
Seems like only yesterday

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


[Verse]
            A#
If we drove all the way to Dallas

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


[Verse]
    A#
God knows that shifting gears

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


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


[Verse]
   A#
If you had something to say

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


[Verse]
A#
Boys would call the girls

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


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


[Verse]
       A#
Lets's roll the windows down

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


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