G  G/F#  Em  Am  C  G  G/F#  Em    Am D  (repeat)

 G            G/F#          Em
Now that the holidays have come
          Am                  C
They can relax and watch the sun
      G                G/F#                     Em    Am  D
Rise above all of the beautiful things they've done

 G          G/F#             Em
Go to the country, take the dog
             Am              C
Look at the sky without the smog
          G                  G/F#            Em
See the world, laugh at the farmers feeding hogs
 Am  D    E
Eat hot dogs

(E)     G#   C                        F#
What a pity that the people from the city
 F         Am          C     Em    Em/Bb      D            Dmaj7
Can't relate to the slower things that the country brings

D Dmaj7  G  C  G  Gsus4  G

Time itself is bought and sold
The spreading fear of growing old
 Bm                          C             G
Contains a thousand foolish games that we play
While people planning trips to stars
 Em                          Bm                   C
Allow another boulevard to claim a quiet country lane
       G        A Asus4 A
It's insane

A G Bm D E  (horn part)

Em(3)          F#m      Em(3) F#m
So the subtle face is a loser this time around
G                  A
Here we are in the years
Where the showman shifts the gears
Lives become careers
 D                     G              A
Children cry in fear "let us out of here"
