Artist : Bruce Hornsby
Song : The Old Playground

[Intro] : G F G F

[Verse 1] :
C              G         Em                D
Walking on the sidewalk, roundball under my arm
C          G            Em            D      C
Everybody knows how you play is who you are
C                G     Em                    D
Walking down the road, looking for a game or two
C              G             Em                           D
The real moves come through, no matter what they're gonna do 
     G  
It's down to you

[Chorus] :
G              D        Em
Take me to the old playground
C                        F
Where the old ones rule, and the young ones do their time
G              D        Em
Take me to the old playground
C
Where the talk is cheap
F                               G
And the restless stalk that baseline

G F G F

[Verse 2] :
C            G       Em                      D
The old sage frowns, he says just pass it on around
C             G                Em           D   C
But all-world junior's pulling up from downtown
C               G            Em              D
For some it's a way out, for some it's a way in
C          G
Most of us don't even care
Em                     D  
We're just looking for another gym to get in

[Chorus] :
G              D        Em
Take me to the old playground
C                        F
Where the old ones rule, and the young ones do their time
G              D        Em
Take me to the old playground
C
Where some play from dreams
F                          
And the rest just play for pride

[Solo] : Em D Em 
         Em D C (x3)

[Bridge] :
D                                       C
The old man said stop running with those boys
D                                        C
But they know what to do and their folks don't mind the noise
D                                 C
Say hey now, everybody's gonna get along
D                                    C
Just call your own foul when you break the rules
                           D
If you make it you take it, so make your move

[Chorus] :
G              D       Em
Take me to the old playground
C                        F
Where the old ones rule, and the young ones do their time
G              D       Em
Take me to the old playground
C
Where the talk is cheap
F                           G
And the restless stalk that baseline 

[Outro] : G C G F (x2)
