Readers Digest
As performed by Johnny Q. Public
words & music by Larry Norman
(c)1973 Colgems/EMI Music


(Verse 1)
A
Alice is a drag queen
Bowie, somewhere in between
Other, bands are looking mean
Me I'm trying to stay clean
D
I don't dig the radio
I hate what hte charts pick
Rock and roll may not be dead
But it's getting sick
E
All over the world
Disc jockeys talk insane
A
Every town I play
Is like I'm wondering why I came


(Verse 2)
A
The Rolling Stones are trillionaires
The flower children paul bearers
Beatles said "All You Need Is Love" 
And then they broke up
D
River took and overdose
Kurt followed so close
Tho whole music scene and all the
Bands are pretty comatose
E
This time last year
People didn't want to hear
A
They looked at Jesus from afar
They say he's a superstar


(Bridge)
A
Dear John
Who's more popular now
I've been listening to Paul's records
And I think he really is dead


(Verse 3)
A
It's nineteen-ninety-four
Teen spirit has become a bore
Who's in power now
I think I'll turn on the TV
D
The man on the news says
Japan is gonna beat us
A 
We shot all dreamers 
And there's no one left to lead us
E
We need a solution, we need salvation
A
So they sent some people to the moon 
To gather information
They brought back a big bag of rocks
It only cost 13 billion buckaroos
Must be some really nice rocks


(Verse 4)
A
You think it's such a sad thing
When you see a fallen king
Then you fine out they were only 
Princes to begin with
D
Everybody has to chose
Whether they will win or lose
A
Follow God or sing the blues
And who they're going to sin with
E
What a mess the world is in
I wonder who began it
A
Don't ask me
I'm only visiting the planet


This world is not my home
I'm just passing through
