Dreams of the everyday housewife    
recorded by Glen Campbell written by Chris Gantry
[3/4 time]
C7 C
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
F C Dm E7
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
F C Dm G7
And all of the boys she had waiting in line

C Dm C Dm
Oh such are the dreams of the everyday housewife
C Dm C G
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
F C Dm E7
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
F C Dm G7
That broke all their minds back so many years

Repeat #3

Glen Campbell didn't do any red neck country songs but he sure had several very pretty songs that I enjoy. This one takes a bit of practice but you can do it, the chords are makable, remember to do it 3/4 time. Print Dreams of the Everyday Housewife lyrics and chords, be patient and it will come to you.
