   Bb                                         Bdim      F7
Saturday night in Toledo, Ohio is like being nowhere at all
			     Bb        Gm(3fr)          
All through the day how the hours rush by
     C7                      F7
You sit in the park and you watch the grass die!
Ah, but after the sunset, the dusk and the twilight
		 Bdim           F7
When shadows of night start to fall
				Bb        Gm(3fr)
They roll back the sidewalk precisely at ten
      C7                       F7
And people who live there are not seen again!
      Bb           Bb7          Eb(3fr) 
Just two lonely truckers from Great Falls, Montana
	F7                    Bb         Bb7
And a salesman from places unknown (-ces unknown)
      Eb(3fr)   Edim       Bb      G7
All huddled together in downtown Toledo 
     C7             F7        Bb     C7  
To spend their big night all alone!

    Bb                                              Bdim           F7
You ask how I know of Toledo, Ohio? Well I spent a week there one day
			      Bb         Gm(3fr)          
They've got entertainment to dazzle your eyes
    C7                   F7
Go visit the bakery and watch the buns rise!
Ah, but let's not forget that the folks of Toledo
	     Bdim         F7
Unselfishly gave us the scale
					Bb          Gm(3fr)
No springs, honest weight, that's the promise they made
     C7                        F7
So smile and be thankful next time you get weighed!
      Bb          Bb7        Eb(3fr) 
And "wiv and wet wiv", let this be our motto
       F7                    Bb         Bb7
Let's let the sleeping dogs lie (-ping dogs lie)
     Eb            Edim     Bb     G7   
And here's to the dogs of Toledo, Ohio
  C7        F7          Bb   C7  Bb
Ladies, we bid you goodbye!
