A G D E x 2

A               G                   D                    E
White houses in neat little rows contrasting against the sky
A                         G               D                             E
Tumbled down black shacks over the tracks children so hungry they could cry
    A                    G           D                     E
The chrome the steel the metal dream leaving the teepee to rot
      A                 G                  D                   E
The escapist young mind left behind saving dimes for community pot

                A        G D
You better get straight
E                  A         G
Better, better get straight
D E                    A                   G
I mean you better get straight right now
D                  E                   A             G D E
Better get it, you better, better get straight babe

        A                   G                     D                            E
They're crying out for love all the time but they fail to see their 
neighbours eyes
    A        G                  D                         E
The TV is on 6 o'clock news the channel's in full colored lies
    A                  G                     D                   E
The company meets, the President speaks he's young but his bones creak
      A                    G                         D                E
Young girl dresses for the high school dance and the guy next door is dyin' 
for a peek

    A        G
Get straight
    D       E                    A               G
You better, yeah, you better get straight babe
  D        E                  A             G
Oh did you get what I said, I said to you
     D        E                      A
That you, you better, you better get angry
    G           D                    E
You better, you better get straight

SOLO (32 bars)

           A                          G                   D                E
They put a bible in the drawer of the motel room and it's crying out to be read
       A                    G                    D                        E
But it stays right there collecting dust, no one understands what's being said
A                   G           D                   E
Lovers make love in comfy boxes, what will tomorrow bring
             A                             G                  D              
They've been told that it's wrong but they don't give a damn, soon another 
life it will bring

               A              G
You better get straight baby
D    E                    A             G
Yeah you, you better get straight baby
D             E               A                   G
Oh and I think I better get myself to get it babe
                D           E                 A G
You know what I mean I been bent so very long
        D                  E
I wanna fly right, I wanna do it alright
