I Am Changing My Name To ‘Chrysler’ Tom Paxton

(C)(G) Oh, the price of gold is (C)rising out of (G)sight,
And the dollar is in sorry shape tonight. (C)(D)
What the dollar used to get us now won't (G)buy a head of (E)lettuce
No, the (A)economic forecast isn't (D)bright.
But a(G)midst the clouds I (C)spot a shining (G)ray,
I can (C)even glimpse a new and better (B7)way,
And I've de(C)vised a plan of (C7)action, worked it (G)down to the last (E)fraction,
And I'm (A)going into (D)action here to(C)d(C/B)a(Am)y.(G)(hold)

I am (G)changing my (C)name to (G)‘Chrysler’,
I am (C)going down to Washington, D.(G)C.,
I will (D)tell some power broker, ‘What they (G)did for Ia(E)cocca
Will be (A)perfectly acceptable to (D)me!’(D/C)(D/B)(D/A)
I am (G)changing my (C/E)name(D) to (G)‘Chrysler’,
I am (C)heading for that great receiving (B7)line,
So when they (C)hand a million (C7)grand out, I'll be (G)standing with my (E)hand out,
Yes sir, (A) I'll (D)get (G)mine!(C) (G)(hold)

When my (G)creditors are (C)screaming (D)for their (G)dough,
I'll be (C)proud to tell them all where they can (G)go.(C)(D)
They won't have to scream and holler, they'll be (G)paid to (G/F#)the last (E)dollar,(E/B)
Where the (A)endless streams of money seem to (D)flow.(C)(D)
I'll be (G)glad to tell ´em (C)all what they can (G)do,
It's a (C)matter of a simple form or (B7)two.
It's not (C)just remune(C7)ration, it's a (G)lib'ral edu(E)cation,
Aren´t you (A)kind of glad that (D)I'm in debt to (C)y(C/B)o(Am)?(G)(hold)

'Cause I´m (G)changing my (C)name to (G)‘Chrysler’,
I am (C)going down to Washington, D.(G)C.,
I will (D)tell some power broker, ‘What they (G)did for Ia(E)cocca
Will be (A)perfectly acceptable to (D)me!’(D/C)(D/B)(D/A)
I am (G)changing my (C/E)name(D) to (G)‘Chrysler’,
I am (C)heading for that great receiving (B7)line,
So when they (C)hand a million (C7)grand out, I'll be (G)standing with my (E)hand out,
Yes sir, (A)I'll (D)get (G)mine!(C) (G)(hold)

Since the (G)first amphibians (C)crawled out (D)of the (G)slime,
We've been (C)struggling in an unrelenting (G)climb.(C)(D)
We were hardly up and walking before (G)money started (E)talking,
And it (A)said that failure is an awful (D)crime.(C)(D)
Well, it's been (G)that way a mil(C)lennium or (G)two,
But now it (C)seems there is a different point of (B7)view.
If you're a (C)corporate ti(C7)tanic and your (G)failure is gi(E)gantic,(E/B)
Down in (A)Congress there's a (D)safety net for (C)y(C/B)o(G)u.(hold)

So I´m (G)changing my (C)name to (G)‘Chrysler’,
I am (C)going down to Washington, D.(G)C.,
I will (D)tell some power broker, ‘What they (G)did for Ia(E)cocca
Will be (A)perfectly acceptable to (D)me!’(D/C)(D/B)(D/A)
I am (G)changing my (C/E)name(D) to (G)‘Chrysler’,
I am (C)headed for that great receiving (B7)line,
So when they (C)hand a million (C7)grand out, I'll be (G)standing with my (E)hand out,
Yes sir, (A)I'll (D)get (G)mine!(C) (G)(hold)
So when they (C)hand a million (C7)grand out, I'll be (G)standing with my (E)hand out,
Yes sir, (A)I'll (D)get (G)mine!(C) (G)
