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                                    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 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,
