A5 G5 D5 E5 x 2

A5               G5                   D5                    E5
White houses in neat little rows contrasting against the sky
A5                         G5               D5                             E5
Tumbled down black shacks over the tracks children so hungry they could cry
    A5                    G5           D5                     E5
The chrome the steel the metal dream leaving the teepee to rot
      A5                 G5                  D5                   E5
The escapist young mind left behind saving dimes for community pot

                A5        G5 D5
You better get straight
E5                  A5         G5
Better, better get straight
D5 E5                    A5                   G5
I mean you better get straight right now
D5                  E5                   A5             G5 D5 E5
Better get it, you better, better get straight babe

        A5                   G5                     D5                            E5
They're crying out for love all the time but they fail to see their 
neighbours eyes
    A5        G5                  D5                         E5
The TV is on 6 o'clock news the channel's in full colored lies
    A5                  G5                     D5                   E5
The company meets, the President speaks he's young but his bones creak
      A5                    G5                         D5                E5
Young girl dresses for the high school dance and the guy next door is dyin' 
for a peek

    A5        G5
Get straight
    D5       E5                    A5               G5
You better, yeah, you better get straight babe
  D5        E5                  A5             G5
Oh did you get what I said, I said to you
     D5        E5                      A5
That you, you better, you better get angry
    G5           D5                    E5
You better, you better get straight

SOLO (32 bars)

           A5                          G5                   D5                E5
They put a bible in the drawer of the motel room and it's crying out to be read
       A5                    G5                    D5                        E5
But it stays right there collecting dust, no one understands what's being said
A5                   G5           D5                   E5
Lovers make love in comfy boxes, what will tomorrow bring
             A5                             G5                  D5              
They've been told that it's wrong but they don't give a damn, soon another 
life it will bring

               A5              G5
You better get straight baby
D5    E5                    A5             G5
Yeah you, you better get straight baby
D5             E5               A5                   G5
Oh and I think I better get myself to get it babe
                D5           E5                 A5 G5
You know what I mean I been bent so very long
        D5                  E5
I wanna fly right, I wanna do it alright
