[Verse 1]
  Em *            D#aug   G/D
"Hello Honey, it's me!    What did you think,
         G/C#                  G/C     G/B
When you heard me back on the radio?
G/A                     G
What did the kids say, when they knew...
                G7/F             Em                           Em/B
...It was their long lost Daddy - O?"

[Verse 2]
       Em                  Em/B      C
Re - member how we listened to the radio,
        D                        G
And I said, 'That's the place to be!'
G/A      Em                      C            D              Am
     And how I got the job as an FM Jock the day you married me?
        G                  G/B   C               D                  Em
It was two kids, and I was into AM rock, but I just had to run a -round,
          Fmaj7                C
It's been eight years since I left you, babe,
C/E      D                         Am
Let me tell you 'bout what's gone  ...down!


[Chorus]
                      G              D    Em  Em7     Fmaj7

C          C/B  C/A  G/B      G/A  G          D           Am   Asus2
   Playing all  the  hits for you,    wher - ever you may be,
G                       D                    Em         Em7  Fmaj7
   The bright 'Good - morning' voice, who's heard, but never seen----,
C                   G            G/B
   Feeling all of forty - five,

[Verse 3]
       Em          Em/B    C                 D               G
The drinking I did, on my last big gig, it made my voice go low,
G/A       Em                        C                        Cmaj7
    They said that they liked the young sound----------------------,
                                              (Sound, sound, sound!)

 D               Am          G           G/B   C
When they let me go, so I drifted on down to Tulsa, Oklahoma,
   D                   Em
To do me a late night talk show,
         Fmaj7              C              C/E      D                Am
Now I've worked my way down ...home again, here to Boise in ...Ida - ho,
        D                 Am
That's how this business goes------!

[Verse 4]
      Em                      Em
I'm making extra money doing High School sock hops,
 D                                    F                       C
I'm a big-time guest M.C, you should hear me talking to the little children,
      D                     B                B7
And listen what they say to me!

[Verse 5]
         Em                                 D
I got a spot on the top of my head, just begging for a new toupee,
           F                          C
There's a tyre around my gut, from sitting on my...
              D                Em                            Em/B
...But it's never gonna go a - way!

[Verse 6]
     Em         Em/B   C                  D                   G
Sometimes I get this crazy dream, that I just take off in my car,
    G/A      Em/B             C                 D                  Am
But you can travel on ten thousand miles, and still stay where you are,
    G            G/B     C                        D                 Em
Thinking that I should stop disc jockeying, and start that record store,
Fmaj7            C
Maybe I could settle down,
           D               Em *   D#aug    G/D   G/C#
If you'd take me back once more!
                        |   /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |

[Verse 7]
 Em *          D#aug     G/D                  G/C#
Okay, Honey, I see!   I guess he's better than me,
G/C                  G/B          G/A                       G           G7/F
Sure, Old Girl, I understand, you don't have to worry, I'm such a happy man!
