C                                                Am

   There's a local paper rolled up in a rubber band 
C                                       Am 
   One more sad story's one more than I  - can stand 
F                                       C 
   Just once how I'd like to see the headline say  
            Am                              F7M 
Not much to print today, Can't find nothing bad to say
