Subject: Lyr Req: Boredom- J. Sebastian
From: GUEST,Phil B.

I need the lyrics to Boredom by John Sebastian (The Lovin' Spoonful). What I know follows:

Boredom My mind's countin' time The trucks keep rollin' by In this ... one-horse town

There never was a place that seemed so much unlike home And there never was a time when I felt so all alone

... I can't sit and wait by the telephone 'cause no one knows my number and it can't be found...

Boredom
Hangin' by myself
In a bleak motel
Overnight in a small town.
Boredom
My mind's countin' time (tires?)
Trucks go rollin' by
Past the pumps and highway signs.
Never was a place that felt less like home
Never would've come here if I'd only known
That it's a one-track town and I'm all alone
I can't just sit and watch my telephone
'Cause no one knows my number and I can't be found
'N' there's no good people just kickin' around
So here we are together, machines and me
I feel about as local as a fish in a tree, and it's
Boredom
Hangin' by myself
In a bleak motel
Overnight in a small town...

I learned it as a ".....One Channel town...." but whose to argue in the digital age. :-)

Another last line occurred to me this morning, which would follow D.M.'s reading "And in this town all the other sounds have ceased/and the late late show died long ago, with a few words from a priest" (follows the second "overnight in a small town", and is then followed by the "My mind's..." line again).

You're missing a bridge.

(John B Sebastian)

1.   Boredom Hangin' by myself In a bleak motel

    Overnight in a small town.


2.   Boredom My mind's countin' time Trucks go rollin' by

    Past the pumps and highway signs.


br. Never was a place that felt less like home

    Never would've come here if I'd only known

    That it's a one-track town and I'm all alone

    I can't just sit and watch my telephone

    'Cause no one knows my number and I can't be found

    And there's no good people just kickin' around

    So here we are together, machines and me

    I feel about as local as a fish in a tree, and it's

vs 2


br. And in this town all the other sounds have ceased

    And the Late,Late Show died long ago

    With a few words from a priest.

C         F            D7 G7            C
Boredom, hangin` by myself in a bleak motel
      Dm         G7    C
over-night in a small town

Boredom, my mind`s counting time Trucks go rollin` by
          Dm       G7      C
past the pumps and highway signs

F                                     C
Never was a place that felt less like home
D7                                    G7
Never would`ve come here if I`d only known

That it`s a one channel town and I`m all alone
   G7
I can`t just sit and watch my telephone

`Cause no-one knows my number, and it can`t be found

With a few words from a priest

Boredom, hangiin` by myself in a bleak motel
      Dm          G7    C    Dm G7   C
Over-night in a small town
