1.     Got a call from an old friend, we used to be real close,

    said he couldn't go on the American way,

    Closed the shop, sold the house, bought a ticket to the West Coast,

A                                                                     D

    now he gives them a stand-up routine in L.A.

3.   They will tell you, you can't sleep alone in a strange place,

A                                                                            D

    then they'll tell you can't sleep with somebody else.

D                              D7                                 G

    Ah, but sooner or later you sleep in your own space,

A                                                                       D

    either way it's O.K., you wake up with yourself.
