F    C/E    F/D    C    F/D    C7/E

F                                  C7                           F
Sometimes you dream, sometimes it seems
C7                           F/D C/E F C/E
There's nothing there at all
       Dm                           Am
You just seem older than yesterday
                 Bb                                    C     F/D C/E
And you're waiting for tomorrow to call

You draw to the curtain and one thing's for certain
You're cozy in your little room
The carpet's all paid for, God bless the TV
Let's go shoot a hole in the moon

C F/D C/E  F                     G7
Whoa And Roy Rogers is riding tonight
Bb                               F             C/E F/D
Returning to our silver screens
C                        F/D C/E F
Comic book charac- ters never grow old
Bb                                   G/B               C
Evergreen heroes whose stories were told
           Dm                                   Am
Oh the great sequin cowboy who sings of the plains
     Bb                                     G\B              C F/C C7
Of round ups and hustlers and home on the range
Dm                       Am
Turn on the T.V., shut out the lights
       Bb           Bb/C       F Bb/F F
Roy Rogers is riding to-night

Nine o'clock mornings, five o'clock evenings
I'd liven the pace if I could
Oh I'd rather have a ham in my sandwich than cheese
But complaining wouldn't do any good

Lay back in my armchair, close eyes and think clear
I can hear hoofbeats ahead
Roy and Trigger have just hit the hilltop
While the wife and the kids are in bed
