C    G    C

C FAll you kids get out the back door, I've never seen her this mad before
CShe took all her favorite things down from the window
GAnd broke them all over her clean floor
C FIt's Saturday at the mansion, the oldest boy walks with a slouch
CThe young ones are wild in back of the house
G CAnd she gave up and went back to sleep on the couch
F CSomething as simple as boys and girls
G AmGets tossed all around and lost in the world
F CSomething as hard as a prayer on your back
G AmCan wait a long time for an answer
When I was little I'd stare at her picture And talk to the mother of God I swear sometimes I'd see her lips move Like she was trying to say something to me When I was eighteen I moved to Florida Like everyone sick of the cold does And I waited on old people waiting to die Oh, I waited on them until I was Something as simple as boys and girls Gets tossed all around and lost in the world Something as hard as a prayer on your back Can wait a long time for an answer C G F C G C G F C G C Now I'm wearing my footsteps into this floor One day I won't live here anymore And someone will wonder who lived here before And went on their way I live too many miles from the ocean And I'm getting older and odd I get up every morning with my cup of coffee And I talk to the mother of God Something as simple as boys and girls Gets tossed all around and lost in the world Something as har as a prayer on your back Can wait a long time for an answer Can wait a long time for an answer F G F G
F G F GMaybe it's alright, maybe we won't fight anymore
F G Am G F GMaybe love is waiting at the end of every road
F GI don't know, I don't know
F G F G F GAnd maybe, maybe it's alright
F G Am F G
