[ verse 1 ]
C . G . Dm. F G I went out walking in the snow and it was interesting
C . G . Dm. F G Nobody else was there, the snow had covered everything
Am. Aba.C . D . It was like walking in a post-atomic wasteland
Dm. G . Dm. G . I hope the people all come back - when the snow has all gone.

C . G . Dm. F G

[ verse 2 ]
C . G . Dm. F G You are my baby and you know that I love you
C . G . Dm. F G I am your baby and you know I love you too
Am. Aba.C . D . I hope we're never in a post-atomic wasteland
Dm. G . Dm. G . Cuz then we won't have that much time to spend together, wo wo...

C . G . Dm. F G

[ bridge -- 50s-style ]
F . G . Now we walk around the town
F . G . And look at all the lights
F . G . But if they push the button down
F . G . We won't be going out tonight

C . G . Dm. F G

[ repeat verse 2 ]

[ blank lines in very 50s-style tempo -- solo ]
C . Am . F . G .
C . Am . F . G .
C . Am . F . G .
C . Am . F . G .

[ repeat bridge, mostly w/out drums ]

[ finale - repeat to end - extemporize vocally ]
C . G . Close your eyes & hold me tight
Dm. F G Dontcha know everything's gonna be all right
