There seemed to be a lot of C&W crossovers in late '65 - early '66, and
this one by the Statler Brothers was the biggest of the bunch (#4).  --AWR

			"Flowers On The Wall"
			    (Lew DeWitt)

Verse 1:
[ Tab from: ]
	C                                 Am
	I keep hearin' you're concerned about my happiness
	    D7                                   G
	But all that thought you've given me is conscience I guess
	      C                            Am
	If I were walkin' in your shoes, I wouldn't worry none
	       D7                                              G
	While you and your friends are worryin' 'bout me, I'm havin' lots
	    of fun


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

Verse 2:

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

[repeat chorus]

Verse 3:

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

[repeat chorus]


	 F         G
	Don't tell me
	 F               G
	I've nothin' to do

	G                 C
