Younger Generation John Sebastian (1967) I re-transcribed this because the version on here is wrong. This is a very simple song, so, so, so, great. C D7 Why must every generation think their folks are square? G C And no matter where their heads are they know Moms aint there? C D7 Cause I swore when I was small that I'd remember when G C I knew whats wrong with them that I was smaller then. C D7 Determined to remember all the cardinal rules, G C Like sun showers are legal grounds for cutting school. C D7 I know I have forgotten maybe one or two, D7 G C And I hope that I recall them all before the baby's due, D7 G C And I know hell have a question or two. F G C E- Like ``Hey Pop, can I go ride my Zoom? A- G C E- ``It goes two hundred miles an hour suspended on balloons. F G C E- ``And can I put a droplet of this new stuff on my tongue, A- D7 ``And imagine frothing dragons while you sit and wreck your lungs? C G A- D7 G And I must be permissive, understanding of the younger generation. C D7 Then I;ll know that all Ive learned my kid assumes, G C And all my deepest worries must be his cartoons, C D7 And still Ill try to tell him all the things Ive done G C Related to what he can do when he becomes a man, D7 G C And still hell stick his fingers in the fan. F G C E- And ``Hey, Pop, my girlfriends only three, A- G C E- ``Shes got her own videophone and shes taking L.S.D., F G C E- ``And now that were best friends she wants to give a bit to me. F F7 ``But whats the matter Daddy, how come youre turning green? D7 G ``Can it be that you cant live up to your dreams? This is a GREAT song, especially if you're able to get ahold of the live woodstock version.
