Lather chords
Jefferson Airplane

Capo III

Am C G

Am C GLather was thirty years old today,
Em D Cthey took away all of his toys.
Am C GHis mother sent newspaper clippings to him,
Em D Cabout his old friends who'd stopped being boys.
Em D F DThere was Harwitz E. Green, just turned thirty three,
Am Em Dhis leather chair waits at the bank.
Em D F DAnd Sargent Dow Jones, twenty seven years old,
Am Em Dcommanding his very own tank.
C D EmBut Lather still finds it a nice thing to do,
C D Emto lie about nude in the sand
C D EmDrawing pictures of mountains that look like bumps,
D Am Aand thrashing the air with his hands.
A GBut wait, oh Lather's productive you know,
A G Ahe produces the finest of sound
GPutting drumsticks on either side of his nose,
A G A Am G D Am G Dsnorting the best licks in town;
Ebut that's all over
Am G D Am G D
Am C GLather was thirty years old today,
Em D Cand Lather came foam from his tongue.
Am C GHe looked at me eyes wide and plainly said,
Em D Cis it true that I'm no longer young? (mommy?)
Em D F DAnd the children call him famous,
Am Em Dwhat the old men call insane
Em D F DAnd sometimes he's so nameless,
Am Em Dthat he hardly knows which game to play;
Cwhich words to say
C D EmAnd I should have told him, "no, you're not old."
C D Em D AmAnd I should have let him go on, smiling, baby wide.
