Title:		I.G.Y. (International Geophysical Year)		(Donald Fagen)
		
		||: Fm Dbmaj7 Eb11 :||
		Dm                    Bb                       Am
		Standing tough, Under stars and stripes we can tell
		    Gm
		The dream is in sight, 
		Dm                              Bb                      Am
		You've got to admit it, at this point in time that it's clear
		    Gm
		The future looks bright
		Ab                Dbmaj7                Ab          Dbmaj7
		On that train all graphite and glitter, Undersea by rail
		Ab                  Dbmaj7
		Nintey minutes from New York to Paris
		        Dbdim7               Dbm7
		Well by seventy-six we'll be A.O.K.


		   Fm                               Dbmaj7
	CHORUS:	|: What a beautiful world this will be
	   |	          Dbmaj7              Eb11
	   |	   What a glorious time to be free :|


		Dm                      Bb                           Am
		Get your ticket to that wheel in space while there's time
		    Gm
		The fix is in
		Dm                          Bb                    Am
		You'll be a witness to that game of chance in the sky
		    Gm
		You know we've got to win
		Ab                 Dbmaj7            Ab             Dbmaj7
		Here at home we'll play in the city, Powered by the sun
		Ab                    Dbmaj7
		Perfect weather for a streamlined world
		            Dbdim7                  Dm7
		There'll be spandex jackets one for everyone

		CHORUS
		
		LEAD

		Ab                Dbmaj7                Ab          Dbmaj7

		Ab                  Dbmaj7
		Nintey minutes from New York to Paris
		      Dbdim7              Dm7
		(More leisure for artists everywhere)
		Ab                Dbmaj7
		A just machine to make big decisions
		Ab                            Dbmaj7
		Programmed by fellows with compassion and vision
		Ab                        Dbmaj7
		We'll be clean when their work is done	
		         Dbdim7                 Dm7
