I Like the Old Tech 10-27-2016
(D) G C G
I like the old tech. It still works for me.
I like the old tech that takes you and me.
(D) G C G - C
I like the old tech that brings your hands near mine.
G D G
I like the old tech just fine.
G C G
I like my apple press, while you stir the pot.
I like my big ladder. Hold the bottom. I’ll go up top.
G C G C
I like to read your thoughts in the margins of my book.
Unfold the map and we’ll just take a look.
I love this old guitar, as much as anything.
My fingers may hurt, but it’s a hand-powered machine.
When the grid goes down, it’ll work just fine.
And we see eye to eye when I sing.
I still write real letters to my old college friend.
He says he picks them up and hears my voice.
C G Em
My pen makes some mistakes, but doesn’t choose words for me.
(Em) D - G - D
I’m so glad that I still have a choice.
C D G C
You can hear this song on Luddites.com anytime.
G D G-C G D G
But I like the old tech just fine. I like the old tech just fine.
