      Am                  Em7       Am   

I was having one of those days with morning demanding my

 

Em7                     Am                      

number and name.  I was sober I was thinking I was 

 

Em7

losing my way and I 

 

Am                           Em7

couldnít pass it off as just one of those days.  

      

      Am                     Em7

So I paused for a moment, I paused for old times.  There

 

     Am                            Em7      

were trouble-littered memories and most of them mine.  So I

 

Am                                  Em7           

took a swig of something strong and offered a toast 

Am

to the

 

          Em7

times that are my ghost.

 

 Am            G           Am

Donít you get wise with me; I know what I know, cos Iíve

 

Em7                        F

seen it with my own eyes.  Could you offer any clues?  Any

 

G                                          

relevant news I could cut up and use in my old 

Am         Em7

song.

 

    Am                   Em7                 Am

Now spin me a bottle, or pass me a glass. I wanna make this

 

Em7                Am    

dusty old vision last.  So I clean it up I put it first and

Em7                      Am                    

command it to work and I think of it as it

       Em7

as a companion.

 

       Am                              Em7

But  I donít want for nothing from the rest of my life;

 

Am                       Em7                    Am

Ďcept a  warm hole to crawl in, a pleasurable wife and a

 

                Em7              Am     

loyal old dog who comes to heel when I call.  

                  Em7

Always comes when I call.

 

Am            G             Am 

Donít you get wise with me; I know what I know, cos Iíve

 

Em7                        F          

seen it with my own eyes.  Could you offer any clues?  Any

G                                          C      

relevant news I could cut up and use in my own old 

Em7

song,

 

       F                          G      

thatís taking too long working on melodies that donít

 

C               Em7               F             

please.  Incompletable.  Going nowhere of any interest

 

    G                          C                 

Iím thinking too much Ďbout a  girl in a world so 

Em7

full of

 

                  F                             

good advice about trying evírything twice, Ďbout 

G

opening up.

 

       C                     Em7                  

Moving on and singing my old song thatís taking

F

too long

 

           G

working on melodies that donít please.
