Intro:  G#m (strum in-between lead guitar)

B                           G#m
I keep hearin' your concern about my happiness
    C#7                                    F#
But all that thought you've given me is, conscience I guess
      B                            G#m
If I were walkin' in your shoes, I wouldn't worry none
      C#7                                             F#
While you and your friends are worryin''bout me, I'm havin'lots of fun
  

--Chorus
           G#m                                              G#m B G#m
   Countin' flowers on the wall, that don't bother me at all
           G#m                                          G#m B G#m
   Playin' solitaire 'til dawn, with a deck of fifty-one
            E
   Smokin' cigarettes and watchin' Captain Kangaroo
                  F#     E
   Now don't tell me 
                  F#     E
   I've nothin' to do

      B                                 G#m
Last night I dressed in tails, pretended I was on the town
    C#7                              F#
As long as I can dream it's hard to slow this swinger down
  B                                       G#m
So please don't give a thought to me, I'm really doin' fine
C#7                             F#
You can always find me here and havin' quite a time


--Chorus
           G#m                                              G#m B G#m
   Countin' flowers on the wall, that don't bother me at all
           G#m                                          G#m B G#m
   Playin' solitaire 'til dawn, with a deck of fifty-one
            E
   Smokin' cigarettes and watchin' Captain Kangaroo
                  F#     E
   Now don't tell me 
                  F#     E
   I've nothin' to do


--Solo ->  G#m        E     F# E   F# E   F# E   F# E


      B                            G#m
It's good to see you, I must go, I know I look a fright
 C#7                     F#
Anyway, my eyes are not accustomed to this light
 B                             G#m
And my shoes are not accustomed to this hard concrete
C#7                              F#
So I must go back to my room and make my day complete


--Chorus
           G#m                                              G#m B G#m
   Countin' flowers on the wall, that don't bother me at all
           G#m                                          G#m B G#m
   Playin' solitaire 'til dawn, with a deck of fifty-one
            E
   Smokin' cigarettes and watchin' Captain Kangaroo
                  F#     E
   Now don't tell me 
                  F#     E
   I've nothin' to do
                  F#     E
   Now don't tell me
                  F#     E 
   I've nothin' to do

--Ending ->  G#m  (slow strum as in the Intro)
