My Old School
written by Becker/Fagan
1/20/06


INTRO: D  Em7  C  G

G                           Em7
I remember the 35 sweet goodbyes
C                      D                  G
When you put me on the Wolverine up to Annandale
G                                                   Em7
It was still September when your daddy was quite surprised
C                    D                     G
To find you with the workin' girls in the county jail
       C
I was smokin' with the boys upstairs
       D
When I heard about the whole affair


CHORUS 1:
       G     Em7  G        Em7        G
I said whoah-no, William & Mary won't do now
       D                 Am         Bm    Em7
Well I did not think the girl could be so cruel
        D           Am      Bm      G
And I'm never goin' back to my old school


BREAK: D  Am  Bm  Em7
       D  Am  Bm  Em7


Old lianna's growin' outside her door
Soon they gonna be in bloom up in Annandale
I can't stand her doin' what she did before
Leavin' like a gypsy queen in a fairy tale
Well I hear the whistle but I can't go
I'm gonna take her down to Mexico


CHORUS 2:
         G     Em7  G     Em7        G
She said whoah-no, Guadalajara won't do now
       D                 Am         Bm     Em7
Well I did not think the girl could be so cruel
        D           Am      Bm      G
And I'm never goin' back to my old school


BREAK


SOLO


California tumbles into the sea
That'll be the day I go back to Annandale
Tried to warn you about Gino and Daddy G
But I can't seem to get to you thru the US Mail
Well I hear the whistle but I can't go
I'm gonna take her down to Mexico


CHORUS 2


BREAK out

This site is great however it wont allow me to print even after I have upgraded to premium. It also kicks me off the site repeatedly.

You have an error in the lyrics of the song "My Old School" by Steely Dan. The first word of the second verse should be "Oleanders". An Oleander is a poisonous evergreen shrub with either red or white flowers. It is quite abundant in Northern California.
