Kodachrome

E                             
When I think back on all the crap I learned in high school. 
F#m          B               E   F#m  B  E   
Its a wonder I can think at all.      
     E                    E7            A                            
and though my lack of education hasn't hurt me none. 
F#m              B               E
I can read the writing on the wall


CHORUS:
     A    C#m F#m               Bm            E
