Johnny Cash

Verse 1:

A/ E/

There's a man across the hall who sits staring at the floor

E/ A/

He thinks he's Hank Williams hear him singing through the door

D/ A/

There's a girl in 203, who stops by to visit me

B/ E/

And she talks about her songs and the star that she should be

A/ D/

There are lots of special people staying in or passing through

A/ D/ A/ D/ A

And for one thing or another, committed to Parkview

Verse 2:

A E

There's a girl in 307, coming down on thorazine

A

And a superstar's ex-drummer trying to kick benzedrine

D A

There's a boy just below me who's the son of some well-known

B E

He was brought in by his mother 'cause his daddy's always gone

A D

There's a bum from down on Broadway and a few quite well to dues

A D A D A

Who have withdrawn from the rat race and committed to Parkview

Verse 3:

A E

There's a girl who cries above me, loud enough to wake the dead

A

They don't know what she has taken that has scrambled up her head

D A

There's a writer and a singer who has tried and tried and tried

B E

They just brought him in this morning an attempted suicide

A D

There are those that never made it, those that did but now are through

A D A D A

Some came of their own good chosing, some committed to Parkview

Verse 4:

A E

They wake us about 6: 30, just before the morning meal

A

While they're taking blood pressure, they ask us how we feel

D A

And I always say fantastic there ain't nothing wrong with me

B E

And then they give me my injection and I go right back to sleep

A D

The days are kind of foggy and the nights are dreamy too

A D A D A

But they're taking good care of me, committed to Parkview
