Ambulance Blues Words and Music by Neil Young typed by Steve Vetter *Tune guitar down one step, but I think it sounds all right if you don't* C F Back in the old folky days Am Em D The air was magic when we played C F The river boat was rocking in the rain Am Em D Midnight was the time for the raid G Oh Isabella, Proud Isabella Am They tore you down and plowed you under Bm C You're only real with your makeup on G D How could I see you and stay too long C F All along the Navaho Trail Am Em D burnouts stub their toes on garbage pails C F Waitresses crying in the rain Am Em D Will their boyfriends pass this way again? G Oh Mother Goose, she's on the skids Am the shoe* ain't happy neither are the kids Bm C She needs someone that she can scream at G D And I'm such at heel for making her so bad C F I guess I'll call it sickness gone Am Em D It's hard to say the meaning to this song C F An ambulance can only go so fast Am Em D It's easy to get buried in the past C F When you try to make a good thing last Am Em D G I saw today, in the entertainment section Am There's room at the top for private detection Bm C To Mom and Dad this just doesn't matter G D But it's either that or pay off the kidnappers C F So all you critics sit alone Am Em D You're no better than me for what you've shown C F With your stomach pump and your hook and ladder dreams Am Em D We could get together for some scenes G Well I'm up in T.O. keepin' jive alive Am and out on the corner it's half past five Bm C But the subways are empty and so are the cafes G D Except for the Farmer's Market and I can still hear him sayin' C F "You're all just p**sin' in the wind Am Em D You don't know it but you are" C F And there ain't nothing like a friend Am Em D Who can tell you you're just p**sin' in the wind G I never knew a man could tell so many lies Am he had a different story for every set of eyes Bm C How can he remember who he's talking to? G D G(hold) Cause I know it ain't me and I hope it isn't you * until now, I never knew this word oOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOo >>--- -----> oOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOo
