My Generation (Part 2) - Todd Snider ("Songs for the Daily Planet")

Jeffrey Shilt (

{ There are many walking parts between chords - mainly anytime it goes
from G down to Em, and going from G up to C into the chorus and during the
talking parts at the end. }

Did you know that there are people who would put us down for no other
reason than the simple fact that we get around

  Oh my generation, my generation, my generation should be proud

We were raised up in the hallowed halls
Of half a million shopping malls
And there ain't any price that we're too proud to pay
We'll buy anything from diet Sprite, too 1,000 points of light
Well I'll admit we're not that bright, but I'm proud any way

Chorus:  (Same as above, only we're watching Arsenio Hall now and the
my generation line gets changed with the stops. }

  Oh my generation, my generation, my generation got
  My generation, my generation, my generation
  My generation, my generation, my generation should be proud
