                   Am           G                                      - D                      G

1. And the sign said "Long-haired freaky people       need not apply !"

         D                               A                               G                           A

    So I tucked my hair up under my hat, and I went in to ask him why.

Bm                                                                               G

    He said ,"You look like a fine, upstanding young man, I think you'll do",

            D                                        A                          G                     A

   so I took off my hat and said "Imagine that ! Heh, me workin' for you !"

 

             D              C                     G

Whoa, sign, sign, everywhere a sign,

   D                                      G

blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind !

 D                          A                                   C        - D

Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign ?

 

                   Am                         G               

2. And the sign said anybody caught trespassin'

D                                G

    would be shot on sight,

            D                                         A

    so I jumped on the fence and I yelled at the house,

             - G                                   A

  "Hey,         what gives you the right ?

            Bm                                                     G

    You put up a fence to keep me out or to keep Mother Nature in,

          D                          A

    if God was here he'd tell you to your face,

        G                                    A

    "Man you're some kind of sinner!"

 

  D              C                     G

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign,

   D                                      G

blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind !

 D                          A                                   C        - D

Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign ?

 

                A

+  Now, hey, you, mister can't you read ?

             G                                D

    You gotta have a shirt and tie to get a seat.

             D                                 A

    You can't even watch, no, you can't even eat,

       G                              D

    you ain't supposed to be he....re.

      C                   G                                         D                 G

    Sign said you got to have a membership card to get inside. Uh !

                   Am           G

3. And the sign said, "Everybody welcome,

              D                                G

    come in, kneel down and pray."

                              D                                               A

    But when they passed around the plate at the end of it all,

        G                                  A

    I didn't have a penny to pay.

            Bm                                                 G

    So I got me a pen and a paper, and I made up my own little sign,

                 D                           A                                G                    A

  I said "Thank you Lord for thinkin' about me, I'm alive and doin' fine !"

 

  D              C                     G

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign,

   D                                      G

blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind !

 D                          A                                   C        - D

Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign ?

 

+  instrumental = CHORUS ….
