Dreams of the Everyday Housewife

Song Author Chris Gantry Performer: Glen Campbell og Chris Gantry Submitted by: Anonymous

[C7]She looks in the [C]mirror and stares at the
Wrinkles that [F]weren't there yesterday
And thinks of the young man that [G]she almost [C]married
[F]What would he [C]think if he [Dm]saw her this [E7]way   

She [C]picks up her apron in little girl-fashion
As [F]something comes into her mind
Slowly starts dancing re[G]membering her [C]girlhood
And [F]all of the [C]boys she had [Dm]waiting in [G7]line   

Oh [C]such are the [Dm]dreams of the [C]everyday [Dm]housewife
You [C]see every[Dm]where any [C]time of the [G]day  
An everyday housewife who [F]gave up the good life for [C]me  


The photograph album she takes
From the closet and [F]slowly turns the page
And carefully picks up the [G]crumbling [C]flower
The [F]first one he [C]gave her now [Dm]withered with [E7]age   

She [C]closes her eyes and touches the
House dress that [F]suddenly disappears
And just for the moment she's [G]wearing the gown
That [F]broke all their [C]minds back [Dm]so many [G7]years

Oh [C]such are the [Dm]dreams of the [C]everyday [Dm]housewife
You [C]see every[Dm]where any [C]time of the [G]day  
An everyday housewife who [F]gave up the good life for [C]me  


She looks in the mirror and stares at the
Wrinkles that weren't there yesterday
And thinks of the young man that she almost married
What would he think if he saw her this way

She picks up her apron in little girl-fashion
As something comes into her mind
Slowly starts dancing remembering her girlhood
And all of the boys she had waiting in line

Oh such are the dreams of the everyday housewife
You see everywhere any time of the day
An everyday housewife who gave up the good life for me

The photograph album she takes
From the closet and slowly turns the page
And carefully picks up the crumbling flower
The first one he gave her now withered with age

She closes her eyes and touches the
House dress that suddenly disappears
And just for the moment she's wearing the gown
That broke all their minds back so many years

Oh such are the dreams of the everyday housewife
You see everywhere any time of the day
An everyday housewife who gave up the good life for me
