"Good Night Irene", "LA Freeway" and "Kansas City"


GOOD NIGHT IRENE
   E         B7                  E               E7           A                B7                E
Irene Good night,  Irene, good night, good night Irene, good night Irene, Iíll see you in my dreams

Sometimes I live in the city, sometimes I live in the town, sometimes I get the great notion, to jump in the river and drown

Stop your rambling, stop your gambling, stop staying out late at night, Go home to your wife and family, and sit by the fireside bright



 L.A. FREEWAY

  G                        C
Pack up all your dishes, make a note of all good wishes
 G                                   D
Say goodbye to the landlord for me, sons of bitches, they always bore me
 G                             C
Throw out them L.A. papers, a moldy box of vanilla wafers
 G                           D
Adios to all this concrete, Iím gonna get me that dirt road back street


chorus

          C                   D              G                      C
If I can just get off of this LA freeway without getting killed or caught
         G                  Em                  C                 D
Iíll be down the road in a cloud of smoke to a land that I ainít bought, bought, bought
           C                   D              G                      C       G Em C D G ĖC G
If  I can just get off of this LA freeway without getting killed or caught


Hereís to you, old skinny Dennis, the only one I think I will miss
I can hear that old bass singing, sweet and low like a gift youíre bringing
Play it for me one more time now, weíve got to give it all we can now
I hear every word youíre saying, just keep on, keep on playing

Old Suzanne, donít you cry babe, Loveís a gift, itís surely hand made
We go something we believe in, Now donít you think itís time weíre leaving
You put the pink card in the mailbox, leave the key in the front door lock
Hey, theyíll find it, likely as not, Iím sure thereís something we have forgot



KANSAS CITY

   G                             
Iím going to Kansas City, Kansas City here I come
                                              G
Iím going to Kansas City, Kansas City here I come
                  D                           C                   G   D
Theyíve got some crazy little women there and IĎm going to get me one.

Iím gonna stand on the corner, twelfth street and vine.
Iím gonna stand on the corner, twelfth street and vine.
With my Kansas City woman and my bottle of Kansas City wine.
 
Well, I might take a plane, I might take a train,
but if I have to walk Iím gonna get there just the same.
Going to Kansas city, Kansas City here I come
They've got some crazy little women there and I'm going to get me one.
