Lionel Cartwright – “I Watched It All On My Radio”

#

Intro – E – A – E – B – E

(verse 1)
E A E
I had a six transister when I was a kid,
B
under my pillow I kept it hid,
E A E
When the lights went out and no one could see,
B E – A – E – B – E
Over the airwaves the world came to me,

(verse 2)
I’d go through the stations till I found a game,
I knew how the played by the sounds of their names,
The sluggers hit homers, those pitchers threw smoke,
And I watched it all on my radio,

(chorus)
A E B A
At the crack of the bat i knew how far it go,
E B A
And I watched it all on my radio,
E B E
I watched it all on my radio,

(verse 3)
E A E
When the ballgame was over, the rap up complete,
B
I’d search through the static till I found a beat,
E
The Beatles and Createns, the Stones and the Birds,
B E – A – E – B – E
You should have seen all the groups that I heard,

(verse 4)
And on Saturday night when the skies were all clear,
a station from Nashville sometimes would appear,
The steel guitars and soft southern twang,
The stars of the Grand Ole Opery would sing,

(chorus)
A E B A
And I had a seat on the very front row,
E B A
And I watched it all on my radio,
E B E
I watched it all on my radio,

(bridge)
A E
And right about midnight some preacher came on,
B E
To tell me what’s right; To tell me what’s wrong,
A E
And there was a test at the sound of the beep,
E B A
It was only a test the voice would repeat,
E B A
And the National Anthem would sing me to sleep,

(verse 5)
E A E
I had a six transister when I was a kid,
B
under my pillow I kept it hid,
E A E
When the lights went out and no one could see,
B E
Over the airwaves the world came to me,

(chorus)
A E B A
And I had a seat on the very front row,
E B A
And I watched it all on my radio,
E B E
I watched it all on my radio,
