Track Name: stroking joke
EASY GUITAR CHORDS
capo 4th fret
(verse) G Am C G
(chorus) D Cm G
(verse)
love unkind is not treason
well i know, yes i know
so i'll keep searching for a reason to live
cause now i know.. you're not it
and i've been thinking about leaving
cause i know you won't go
cause you said that you still believe in me
but i don't know if i believe that's true
and I .. well i'm afraid
i'll never get laid again
or i'll be played as friend
but i .. well i'll be brave
i'll give myself what i need
got BAND-aid for when i bleed
(chorus)
and i'm the type of guy
who loves a lullaby at night
and i've gotten wise
i never made you cry "let's fight"
betrayed with one kiss and you act like you're jesus christ
while i'm the type guy who loves the lullaby of night
(verse)
and i've been wasted for days and days
and i know.. i don't know
call the cops and take me out of this place
cause i can't take you anymore
and once what was love is now an infected sore
gang green of the heart.. i got gang green in my heart
the cause and effect are exactly the same
you're insane and you drive me insane
the cause and effect are exactly the same
you're insane and you drive me insane
(repeat chorus)
Track Name: there i was
SUPER EASY GUITAR CHORDS
(verse) G
(chorus) D Cm G
(verse)
sitting in my underwear
sitting in my easy chair
wonderin if the time was right
and what i was gonna do tonight
(chorus)
i should've stayed home
packed myself a bong and smoked it
(verse)
cause all i really care about is smoking pot and hanging out
petting girls and kissing cats
and taking pills to relax
(chorus)
i don't answer the phone
let them think i'm gone.. cause i am
(verse)
well look at all these vacant stares
and look at the that girl over there
i just wanna fuck her hair
or get my hand in her underwear
(chorus)
if she don't mind
that would be fine with me
(verse)
and i know what you're thinking
cause i'm thinking it too
you think this song's retarded
and i think my cat just farted
and i'm playing my guitar
in some smokie ass bar
(chorus)
i'm standing right here
having my beer
i have no fear
i have no fear
just add beer and i'll have no fear
Track Name: (speeding) out of control
EASY GUITAR CHORDS: CAPO 1st fret
(verse) D A B A
(chorus) G A D B G A D
(verse)
D
she's never on time or without cigarettes
................A
I'm her cancer boy and that will be my death
....................B........................A
but I'll stick around .. I'll stick around
D
and I always try to please her
A
bless her heart she such a tease
...................B..............................A
and I'm a clown.. who's always downtown
(chorus)
G...................A..................D.................................B
and if i cry loud enough somebody's bound to know
G...................A..........................D
that I'm the one who's out of control
(verse)
and sometimes when I'm feeling sad
i get a pain in my heart i never had
i push it down.. way down
and there it grows mean and sore
looking for love has left me a whore
but i don't go down.. i won't go down
(repeat chorus)
(trumpet solo) yikes!
(repeat chorus)
(verse)
and I'm a sore loser who never wins
my heart it breaks again and again
without a sound.. there's no sound
and I feel sick but i wanna get better
she wants to leave but I won't let her
I tie her down.. she's gagged and bound
(chorus)
and if she cries loud enough somebody's bound to know
that I'm the one who's out of control
Track Name: new deal with jesus
(verse)
well.. this is for all the things that bleed us
cut into our hearts and veins
well i don't think that they really need us
still they make us there slaves just the same

so I'm getting high all the time
breaking free from the lies i stuck in my mind
its like the doomed little train that we all ride
i just hope after the wreck I'm still alive

so I'm making a deal with jesus
to keep from going insane
well there's nothing left here to please us
everything is just in vain
Track Name: punched in the gut
well i could never say the words
i brake. i slide. i swerve.
and i cant look in your eyes
you smile i think i wanna die
and i'm out mowing lawns
waiting for the sun to go down
and i wish you would leave me alone
i wish you would just leave town
and i've done a million crimes
and nobody ever found out
and you're just a waste of time
you don't know what you're talking about
and how the hell do you get girls
you stink you make me wanna hurl
and you think its cool to be high
but who am i to criticize
cause i'm out getting stoned
drinking and a wasting my life
and i don't know where i went wrong
i just know it didn't go right
and i've done a million crimes
and nobody ever found out
Track Name: happy hearts
GUITAR CHORDS :Em D A
I'm living in the dark since i met you
I'm your vampire you'll be mine too
and i don't know why you love me do
cause I'm obscene I'm really uptight
you're never wrong I'm never right
but if you tell me lies then I'll go
if i don't try I'll never know
(chorus)
and I'm so sick of everybody telling me
that I'm so tired. Everything is killing me
and I'm so numb that I can't feel a thing
(bring it down bridge)
wish i could fly through the air
into the sun where no one stares
and there I'd make our new home
and you could sleep and I would sing
of Happy Hearts and wedding rings
and how I'm sad when you're gone
(rock out)
(verse)
I'm living for blood
stay up all night
we're making love like two cats fight
and if i don't die then I'll know
a love is Do or Die and not for show
Track Name: wiggle song
GUITAR CHORDS
(verse) B A
its dynamite inside of you
i'll explode and rub it into your spine
i thought i was over you
but you were right
i'm just outta my mind
(chorus) G A B
i'm gonna walk, gonna fall, gonna break again
then we always drift apart
tell my heart this was just a slip
but you make it so hard
(bridge) B A - G A D
(verse)
it's all right
do what you want
you can cry or stay all night
i don't need anyone to tell me if i'm wrong or right
(chorus)
I'm gonna walk, gonna fall, gonna break again
then we always drift apart
tell my heart that this was just a slip
but you make it so hard
(bridge)
(instrumental blast off and landing)
Track Name: little joe's family mover
well i'm not going to Ohio
cause i don't wanna go
you can't take mom and Emma
but i'm not gonna go
and yeah i know they got the rock and roll hall of fame
but i'd rather stay here in the sun
than read a bunch of names

surf's up
let ride a wave
surf's up
let's ride away
surf's up
let's hide away
under the sea

well yes sir.. you're going to Ohio
there's nothing you can do
so get your ass in the van
and do what i tell you to
you'll make new friends in Ohio
of this i have no doubt
so please stop all that whining
and lose that baby pout

Summer's gonna be a bummer

just shut up, just shut up, just shut up
i'm really happy
i like it here don't make me go please
i'll be a good boy
i'll make you very proud
i won't go
i swear i'll run away right now
i'll do it some how
(repeat)
Track Name: live like that
(verse)
well i suppose
i could live alone forever
self impose
a prison for my heart
yesterday love was everything
but now it's just a scar
that's left its mark
and i'll never kiss a girl again
(chorus)
but i don't want to live like that (no)
i don't want to live like that
so tell me girl where it's at
(verse)
you're such a freak
look i think he's gonna cry
thinks he's a sweet and sensitive guy
well turn around and look into the mirror baby
there's nothing wrong with you
you just don't try
and you can kiss this girl again
(chorus)
and you don't have to live like that (no)
you don't have to live like that
cause loving me is where its at
(bridge)
but its hard to be a loving man
i wasted making love with my right hand
i sit alone at home every saturday night
man i say that shit just aint right
(2nd bridge)
we could set sail for the middle of the ocean
our pounding hearts will make a breeze
declare our love and hopeless devotion
then we jump into the sea
(underwater instrumental)
(verse)
back on the beach
we wiggle toes in the sand
love so sweet
you hold my hand
i think i could stay right here forever baby
no sunburn for me
your kisses keep me tan
and i'll never go back to then
(chorus)
cause i'm not gonna live like that (no)
i'm not gonna live like that
cause loving you is where its at
loving you is where its at (x2)
Track Name: the gomer song
(verse)
she called me a gomer
for looking like a square
i rub my head for a while
watch a little TV and i comb my hair
i don't know why I'm not going anywhere
but if i do .. I want to look good
(verse)
sucked into the couch I'm barely half awake
depression and boredom just things i try to shake
the pinwheels start spinning in the back of my head
from a dark wind blowing all the things you said
"I'll never find somebody else"
"I'll die alone all by myself"
(chorus)(x2)
the pain has come back again
the pain will haunt me until the end
and i will never fall in love again
no i will never be loved again
(verse)
she gave me a boner
i couldn't help but stare
so i rub my head for a while
watch a little TV and I comb hair
i don't know why.. I'm Not going anywhere
but if i do.. i want to look good.
Track Name: clean plate club
GUITAR CHORDS
(verse) power chord G with hammer off and on E string
(1st chorus) Em C
(Bridge) G D G D
(2nd Chorus) G B C D C B A D
(verse)
standing in the shadows
i try not to be seen
hungry eyes they cook your dress
my mind licks your plate clean
(1st chorus)
and i gotta shake my bad reputation
right now
yes I gotta get my head on straight
some how
(verse)
and do you every wonder?
and do i stand a chance?
I have felt your thunder
you made my eyes rain dance
(1st Chorus)
and i gotta shake my bad reputation
some how
yes i gotta get my head on straight
right now
(bridge)
cause I've been chasing raindrops
and when we kiss
you make my heart go (pause) stop
(2nd Chorus)
then you take me back home
you tell me that you like me
and that you want my babies
but i don't believe that i can be that strong
hanging out your window
thinking i should let go
and fall to a death where i belong..
i belong.. but i'm just gone
(2nd bridge)
Up all night and losing sleep
i could stay away for weeks
if i borrowed
i got good bait but fish don't bite
and i get eat by mosquitoes all night
tomorrow.. well it turned to next june
and i'm not a loser
i just made up my mind
maybe just a boozer.. trying to have a good time
(2nd chorus)
busted/ i think I miss the bus
i guess i'll catch a ride and head back home
i must/ but i aint got the guts
to be with a girl that i think i could love
i break in through their window
steal their hearts and away i go
out the fire escape and down with love.
I'm down with love.. down with love. down with love
(1st chorus)
and now we're standing in a rainbow
lights shine on us and the scars they glow
and then it's time to go home.
Track Name: speak breezy ( early version)
EASY GUITAR CHORDS
(verse) C F G C
i'm tired of talking so let's just start walking
back to your car
its way past too late
for getting kicked out of bars
and too much drinking mixed with too much thinking
magnifies all of my mistakes
and now all you see is all i can't erase
and i understand that i'm not worth crying for
i can see you dont love me no more
you're just staying for your pride
so un- unlock this car door
and put the pedal to the floor
and just take me home again
and let me ride . ride into the sunrise
the road side is floating in my eyes
i'm lonely but i'm not alone
(instrumental break) C F G C (x2)
(verse)
so i turn up a song
and look up at the sky
at the stars looking down on this lonesome guy
the stars of track and field know how i feel
and a breeze in my hair sends a tear down my face
my heart swells so big under god's embrace
he lets me know everything is gonna work out fine
so thank you lord, for speaking to me with a breeze
you really put my mind at ease
that was one sweet moment of time
and thank you god.. thank you for loving me
i'm not such a bad disease at least half of the time
now i believe i know what scars are for
they remind me of the time before
i had you by my side
and now we ride . we ride into the sunrise
and the road side still floating in my eyes
but i'm not lonely and I'm not alone
i'm not lonely and i'm not alone
well im not lonely but maybe i'm alone
Track Name: moment of weakness (acoustic demo)
i'm the needle in the hay
i'm nobody you can save
and i was doing good for a while
saving for a canoe with my camel miles(x2)
and it's all right the things that i do
it don't matter to me.. does it matter to you?
i'm so sick and tired of doing what's right
i'd rather take my chances with an old friend tonight
i'd rather take my chance with an old friend tonight
and i don't even want to be high
it just a little urge i gotta satisfy
just a little urge i gotta satisfy
a moment of weakness can cause a lot of tears
in my moment of weakness i can make myself disappear
and i wonder.. yes, i wonder
will you miss me when i'm gone
will you miss the way i went on and on
about some stupid singer and a stupid song
that's got a B-side single that jeff mangum's on
its got a B-side single that Jeff Mangum's on
and i'm the needle in the hay
i'm nobody you could save
no answers or reasons why
just don't forget me when i die
don't forget me when i die
don't forget me.
Track Name: bookends
lovers.. what do they know?
take one kiss and away they go
i've got.. something up my sleeve
its my arm and its all i need
(chorus)
you take in stride - you take it to the heart
its gonna make you cry- yeah
and man it really smarts
(Verse)
love is.. it's all a big scheme
stole my heart and it was mean
winter.. i'll close my eyes
i cross my fingers and i hope you'll die
(chorus)
you take in stride- you take it to the heart
its gonna be the scar's night
and it's gonna art
(bridge)
(?) lets talk about the weather
and how its getting better
now that you're gone
(?) well i'm feeling better
been wearing my sweater
out in the fog
summer (?)
i know its all a big scheme
10 o'clock and i don't have a watch
take one kiss and you'll know what i mean
Track Name: cattle killer (live)
we are cattlepillars crawling up trees
we're taking little bites out of all the leaves
making our way up to the top
we crawl past a squirrel and stay still for the birds
we're humming all the songs
cause we don't know the words
stomping a beat.. that i'm gonna drop.
Track Name: deal with jesus
(verse)
this is for all the things that bleed us
cut into our hearts and veins
i don't think that they really need us
still they make us their slaves just the same
(instrumental chorus)
(verse)
so i'm getting high all the time
breaking free from the lies
i stuck in my mind
its like the doomed little train that we all ride
i just hope after the wreck.. i'm still alive
(instrumental)
(verse)
so i'm making a deal with jesus
to keep from going insane
there's nothing left here to please us
everythiing is just.. in vain.
