Martin Sexton - Diner tab

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Similar to some other tabs, but this sounds more correct to me. The C-Am is a quick five 
on the C (down, up, down, up, down), four strums on the Am (down, up, down, up). Should 
played briskly, like a Les Paul kind of thing.

Capo: 6th Fret

C-Am   C-Am    C-Am   C-Am
You miiiight have seen one out in Minnesota
C-Am   C-Am    C-Am   C-Am
Or maybeeee down by the sea in Sarasota
F                         Dm
But they were made back in Worcester Mass
F               Dm                 C-Am
Of aluminum and Bakelite and glass  mmm-hmm

C-Am   C-Am    C-Am   C-Am
Liiiike a locomotive they were streamlines
C-Am   C-Am    C-Am   C-Am
And the blue-ooooh prints were drawn up from a dream of mine
F                   Dm
Slap 'em up put 'em on the train
F               Dm         C-Am
Out to Michigan up to Maine  Ah-oooh

Em ...
You may find a diner down in Georgia or

Carolina off the twenty by the piggly wiggly
                      F
In the country out of Waynsboro
Em ...
Or when it's getting late and rainy out in New York State

You hang a louie off the thru-way
                               F
And you go and grab yourself a cheeseburger
                  G
At the little gem diner off the six niner
F        G           C-Am
Diner my shiny shiny love
Dm                                   C-Am
In the night you're all I'm thinking of
F        G           C-Am
Diner my shiny shiny love

C-Am   C-Am    C-Am   C-Am
The crui-ooh-ooh-ser pulls in where the troopers always stop
C-Am   C-Am    C-Am   C-Am
As we diiine over the chrome and formica table top

F                   Dm
The cashier she always squints
F                   Dm
By the gum and the bowl of mints
C-Am
She's tapping her toe
F                   Dm
To the Dean Martin on the consolette
F                   Dm
Booth service and a cigarette we're loving it so

Em ...
Side of fries a dollar
Or the haddock plate two ninety five
A rootbeer float a pepsi
                                   F
And be sure to save some room for some apple pie
Em
La da di da .... (go nuts scatting here)
                  F
Better make it a-la-mode

Chorus
F        G           C
Diner my shiny shiny love
Dm                                   C
In the night you're all I'm thinking of
F        G           C
Diner my shiny shiny love

F                   Dm
Dean Martin god rest his soul
F                   Dm
Talkin' to me from the cereal bowl
F                   Dm
There's a couple from the show me state
F                   Dm
Knockin' back a little meatloaf plate

F        G           C-Am
Diner my shiny shiny love.
F        G           C-Am
Diner my shiny shiny love.
F        G           C-Am
Diner my shiny shiny shiny love.
