A Friday In The Life Of Richard And Betty Chord Doddleoddle

Capo 2 with [G] [C] [A] [Em] [F] [D]


VERSE
It’s 7.15, and Richard and
Betty are waking up soon
The dog’s on the bed, the paper unread,
The sun fades the moon
No one is waiting
Or tapping their foot
Richard and Betty are sleeping
And the …world doesn’t look
It’s Friday, they both strip
The bed laundry day of the week
Taking it slow, the wind softly
Blows through the sweet-smelling sheets

PRE-CHORUS
No one is waiting
Rich takes her hand
He spins Betty carefully
The slowest slow dance
And he says

CHORUS
I think we hacked it
Maybe we cracked it
No there’s nowhere that I’d rather be
My wife is a beauty
My life is a doozy
I’ve been smiling since ‘73
Thank god we said
Goodbye to the city
You’ll never, you’ll never take me there alive
One car, no phone might not be as pretty
But what else would I need when you’re by my side

BREAK

VERSE
They go to the diner
And Betty picks salad to leave room for pie
Her face lights up as she chews
and there’s no better view for Richard tonight

PRE-CHORUS
No one is waiting
The pie is so sweet
The kids left ten years ago
And Diner Day is the best day of the week
Betty says

CHORUS
I think we hacked it
Maybe we cracked it
No there’s nowhere that I’d rather be
I still feel it all
Since we wished in the fall
After dancing in ‘73
Thank god we said
Goodbye to the city
You’ll never, you’ll never take me there alive
One car, no phone might not be as pretty
But my god it beers good with just you by my side

BRIDGE
Make a home in nowhere
Make a home with me
Make a home in nowhere
Make a home with me

OUTRO

Richard and Betty turn out the light
The day is now done
Holding hands as they sleep
They both end the week
Ready for another one
