Original Song #17

Bail You Out

You say you'll hate yourself in the morning
But you'll love yourself by afternoon
Wondering what they put in the water
That keeps the girls from going swoon

Didn't I bail you out
Bail you out another time
Bailed you out again I said
I bailed you out another time

And you're wondering why
You're not the toast of the town
But here you're only toast
You're all stance with no sub-style
Hog the plate and starve the host

Didn't I bail you out
Bail you out another time
Bailed you out again I said
I bailed you out another time

Sticks and stones may break my bones
Words will never hurt me

Cathie,
Looks to me like E-minor out of G.
To an A natural, to C, to B-7.
I think Scott once told me that was close.
What the hell do I know. I'm just a mechanic.

It's all C G Am G, with an arpeggio, but it's the bass part concocted by my friend and bandmate Jean-Marc that really drives the song. My fastest song. Think Husker Du circa Flip Your Wig. A friend once told me if I ever did speed it'd be downright scary.

Well dog my cat.
I used to play all that kind of stuff at the Army and Navy Club on DeCarrie Bouleverd.
That was half a century ago.
But then, you sound kinda hip
at this very hour.
But then a C is easily downloadable to a G, I suppose.
