G                             C             G 
Little boxes on the hillside, little boxes made of ticky-tacky
        G            D7               G             D
Little boxes on the hillside, little boxes all the same
            G                                C              G 
There's a green one, and a pink one, and a blue one, and a yellow one
            G                D7                   G         D7       G 
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky, and they all look just the same

G                        C               G 
And the people in the houses, all went to the uni-versity
            G              D7               G                D
Where they all were put in boxes, and they came out all the same
             G                                  C          G 
And there's doctors, and there's lawyers, and business ex-ecutives
            G                D7                   G         D7       G 
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky, and they all look just the same

G                                 C              G 
And they all play on the golf course, and drink their mar-tinis dry
         G                D7                G                D
And they all have pretty children, and the children go to school
          G                              C              G 
And the children go to summer camp, and then to the uni-versity
            G              D7              G       D7       G 
Where they all are put in boxes, and they come out all the same

G                          C                 G 
And the boys go into business, and marry and raise a family
    G             D7                    G                 D
In boxes made of ticky-tacky, and they all look just the same
            G                                C              G 
There's a green one, and a pink one, and a blue one, and a yellow one
            G                D7                   G         D7       G 
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky, and they all look just the same

About the artist behind Little Boxes Chords:

Peter Seeger (born May 3, 1919), better known as Pete Seeger, is a folk singer, political activist, and a key figure in the mid-20th century American folk music revival. As a member of the Weavers, he had a string of hits, including a 1949 recording of Leadbelly's "Goodnight Irene" that topped the charts for 13 weeks in 1950.[1] However, his career as a mainstream performer was seriously curtailed by the Second Red Scare: he came under severe attack as a former member of the Communist Party of the United States of America. Later, he re-emerged on the public scene as a pioneer of protest music in the late 1950s and the 1960s.

He is perhaps best known today as the author or co-author of the songs "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?", "If I Had a Hammer (The Hammer Song)", and "Turn, Turn, Turn!", which have been recorded by many artists both in and outside the folk revival movement and are still sung throughout the world. "Flowers" was a hit recording for The Kingston Trio (1962), Marlene Dietrich, who recorded it in English, German and French (1962), and Johnny Rivers (1965). "If I Had a Hammer" was a hit for Peter, Paul & Mary (1962) and Trini Lopez (1963), while The Byrds popularized "Turn, Turn, Turn!" in the mid-1960s. Seeger is also widely credited with popularizing the traditional song "We Shall Overcome", which was recorded by Joan Baez and many other singer-activists, and became the publicly perceived anthem of the 1960s American Civil Rights Movement soon after musicologist Guy Carawan introduced it at the founding meeting of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) in 1960.
