Reader's Digest (L. Norman) From the album Only Visiting This Planet Submitted by W.G. Hulbert (email@example.com) Intro: Play with capo on 1st fret Intro: A chord -- When you first strum the A, the strings should be open. Immediately hammer down the A fingerings after the initial attack. Do this throughout the song on A and also on D. Listen to the recording, you'll get the idea. This is very similar to "Why Don't You Look Into Jesus", except faster. A Alice is a drag queen, Bowie's somewhere in between, A Other bands are lookin' mean, me I'm trying to stay clean. D I don't dig the radio, I hate what the charts pick, A Rock and roll may not be dead, but it's gettin' sick. E All over the world, disc jockeys sound the same, A And every town I play is like the one from where I came. A Rolling Stones are millionaires, flower children pallbearers, A Beatles said "all you need is love" and then they broke up, D Jimi took an overdose, Janis followed so close, A The whole music scene and all the bands are pretty comatose, E This time last year people didn't wanna hear, A They looked at Jesus from afar, this year He's a superstar. Instrumental break Dear John, who's more popular now? A It's 1973, I wonder who we're gonna see, A Who's in power now, I think I'll turn on the T.V. D The man on the news said China's gonna beat us, A We shot all our dreamers and there's no one left to lead us, E We need a solution, We need salvation, A Let's send some people to the moon and gather information. Instrumental break They brought back a big bag of rocks, Only cost thirteen billion, Must be nice rocks. A You think it's such a sad thing when you see a fallen king, A Then you find out they're only princes to begin with. D And everybody has to choose whether they will win or lose A Follow God or sing the blues and who they're gonna sin with, E What a mess the world is in I wonder who began it, A Don't ask me I'm only visiting this planet. This world is not my home, I'm just passing through.
