G                                        Bm           C          D 
There's a part of the country could drop off tomorrow in an earthquake,
G                                   Bm               C         D 
Yeah, it's out there on the cutting edge, the people move, the sidewalks shake.
Em                                Bm               C          D 
And there's another part of the country with a land that gently creaks and thuds,
 Em                                Bm                 C        D 
Where the heavy snows make faucets leak in bathrooms with free-standing tubs.
     G                                 Bm             C       D           Em 
They're in houses that are haunted, the with kids who lie awake and think about
                             C                D        G 
All the generations past who used to use that dripping sink.


Em                                  Bm           C       D 
And sometimes one place wants to slip into the other just to see
Em                                Bm                C                D 
What it's like to trade its demons for the restless ghost of Mrs. Ogilvey,
   G                                        Bm                C      D 
She used to pick the mint from her front yard to dress the Sunday pork,
   G                            D        C    G 
Sometimes southern California wants to be western New York.

G                                        Bm           C          D 
It wants to have a family business in sheet metal or power tools,
G                                   Bm               C         D 
It wants to have a diner where the coffee tastes like diesel fuel,
Em                                Bm               C          D 
And it wants to find the glory of a town they say has hit the skids,
 Em                                Bm                 C        D 
And it wants to have a snow day that will turn its parents into kids,
     G                                 Bm             C       D           Em 
And it's embarrassed, but it's lusting after a SUNY student with mousy brown hair who is
                             C                D        G 
Taking out the compost, making coffee in long underwear.


Em                                  Bm           C       D 
And southern California says to save a place, I'll meet you there,
Em                                Bm                C    D 
And it tried to pack up its Miata, all it could fit was a prayer,
   G                                     Bm                C      D 
Sometimes the stakes are bogus, sometimes the fast lane hits a fork,
   G                            D        C             G 
Sometimes southern California wants to be western New York.



Em                                  Bm           C       D 
Tempe, Arizona thinks the Everglades are greener and wetter,
Em                                Bm                C    D 
And Washington, D.C. thinks that Atlanta integrated better,
   G                                     Bm                C      D 
But I think that southern California has more pain that we can say,
   G                            D11        C                  G 
'Cause it wants to travel back in time, but it just can't leave L.A.

G                                        Bm           C          D 
But now I hear they've got a theme park planned, designed to make you gasp and say,
G                                   Bm               C         D 
Oh, I bet that crumbling mill town was a booming mill town in its day,
Em                                Bm               C          D 
And the old investors scoff at this, but the young ones hope they'll take a chance,
 Em                                Bm                 C        D 
And they promise it will make more dough than Mickey Mouse in northern France,
     G                                 Bm             C       D           Em 
And the planners planned an opening day, a town historian will host,
                             C                D        G 
And the waitresses look like waitresses who want to leave for the west coast.


Em                                  Bm           C                     D 
And they'll have puttering on rainy weekends, autumn days that make you feel sad,
Em                                Bm                C           D 
They'll have hundred year old plumbing and the family you never had,
   G                                     Bm                C      D 
And a Niagara River clean-up concert and a bundle-bearing stork,
   G                            D11        C                 G 
And I hear they've got a menu planned, it's trés western New York.
