Verse 1:
A C G D Captain Fantastic raised and regimented, hardly a hero.
G C DJust someone his mother might know.
Am G Dm GVery clearly a case for corn flakes and classics.
Am Cm"Two teas both with sugar please".
G EmIn the back of an alley.
Verse 2:
A C While little Dirt Cowboys, turned brown in their saddles.
G D G C DSweet chocolate biscuits. And red rosy apples in summer.
Am G Dm GFor it's hay make and "Hey mom, do the papers say anything good.
C Cm Are there chances in life for little Dirt Cowboys,
G A# C GShould I make my way out of my home in the woods?"
Verse 3:
A CBrown Dirt Cowboy, still green and growing.
G DCity slick Captain.
G Fantastic the feedback,
C DThe honey the hive could be holding.
Am G Dm GFor there's weak winged young sparrows, that starve in the winter.
Am CmBroken young children on the wheels of the winners.
G A# C GAnd the sixty-eight summer festival wallflowers are thinning.
Em C F C F C F C FFor cheap easy meals are hardly a home on the range.
Em C F C F C F C FToo hot for the band with a desperate desire for change.
G C G We've thrown in the towel too many times.
C GOut for the count and when we're down,
C G CCaptain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy.
A# C GFrom the end of the world to your town.
Verse 4:
A CAnd all this talk of Jesus, coming back to see us.
G DCouldn't fool us.
G C DFor we were spinning out our lines walking on the wire.
Am G DmHand in hand went music and the rhyme.
G Am CmThe Captain and the Kid stepping in the ring.
G A# C GFrom here on sonny, sonny sonny, it's a long and lonely climb.
