Notes about this song:

  • Several members of the RG list pointed out that this song is played in a dropped tuning (D G C F A D).
  • Below I've noted the chords you have to play if you've tuned down your guitar.
   D      Dmaj7          D7                           
   Motion pictures on my TV screen,                   
   G                      E7                          
   A home away from home, livin' in between           
   D     Dmaj7            D7                      G   
   But I hear some people have got their dream.       
   I've got mine.                                     
   I hear the mountains are doin' fine,               
   Mornin' glory is on the vine,                      
   And the dew is fallin', the ducks are callin'.     
   Yes, I've got mine.                                
   Well, all those people, they think they got it made
   But I wouldn't buy, sell, borrow or trade          
   Anything I have to be like one of them.            
   I'd rather start all over again.                   
   Well, all those headlines, they just bore me now   
   I'm deep inside myself, but I'll get out somehow,  
   And I'll stand before you, and I'll bring a smile  
   to your eyes.                                      
   D      Dmaj7     D7                                
   Motion pictures, motion pictures.
