The Wife, the Kids, and the White Picket Fence by Fair to Midland (Fables from a

Mayfly: What I Tell You Three Times is True)

Am         F       C                G

Mail order brides, turtlenecks, and trophy wives

Am               F        

Had the ways and means to breach

C              G

The borders of easy street

C                  G

And to blend right in

       C

We all surrounded them

     F            C

In a white picket fence

    G         C

Now both ends meet

(Chorus)

F       

Sufficed to say there's a time and a place

C

So I wait

        G                         Em

For the tug-of-war and who you'll pull for

F                                                     Am

While between you and me from point A to point B is a fine line

     C                      G

That burns at both our good ends

Am          F          C            G

2 peas in a pod, a battleaxe, and a bastard child

Am             F

took one step more

    C                    G

and went straight to the source

C                  G

and to blend right in

            C

they opened fire with

      F  

their rain checks spent

   C    G    C

to make ends meet

Chorus

F

Go on, paint the whole town red

C

I'd rather follow who cleans up the mess

G        D

And so I wait.
