Standard tuning Open, no capo C G C C F All you kids get out the back door, I've never seen her this mad before C She took all her favorite things down from the window G And broke them all over her clean floor C F It's Saturday at the mansion, the oldest boy walks with a slouch C The young ones are wild in back of the house G C And she gave up and went back to sleep on the couch F C Something as simple as boys and girls G Am Gets tossed all around and lost in the world F C Something as hard as a prayer on your back G Am Can 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 G Maybe it's alright, maybe we won't fight anymore F G Am G F G Maybe love is waiting at the end of every road F G I don't know, I don't know F G F G F G And maybe, maybe it's alright F G Am F G
