Lick #2:
This one is played behind most of the verses, during the 'G' chord.
The tab below assumes you're playing an open G (300023); just work
this pattern into your finger-picking, if any. It also sounds nice
when moved down an octave, but you need to go to dropped-D tuning.

Verse 1:
 G
My telephone wakes me in the morning.  Have to get up to answer the call,
 FCGFCG
So I think I'll go back to the family, where no one can ring me at all.
Verse 2:
 G
Living this life has its problems, so I think that I'll give it a break.
 FCGFCG
Oh, I'm going back to the family, 'cause I've had about all I can take.
Repeat intro lick, then:
 AmCDC
      Master's in the counting house, counting all his money.
 DC
     Sister's sitting by the mirror, she thinks her hair looks funny.
 GBbCD
     And here am I thinking to myself, just a-wondering what it pays to do.
Solo 1 (bass/flute)
Alternate D & C, then end on Asus2
Verse 3:
 G
think I enjoyed all my problems, where I did not get nothing for free.
 FCGFCG
Oh, I'm going back to the family, doing nothing is bothering me.
Verse 4:
 G
I'll get a train back to the city.  The soft life is getting me down.
 FCGFCG
There's more fun away from the family, get some action when I roll into town.
Repeat intro lick, then:
 AmCDC
      Everything I do is wrong.  What the hell was I thinking?
 DC
     Phone keeps ringing all day long, I got no time for thinking.
 GBbCD
     And every day has the same old way, they're giving me too much to do.
Solos (bass/flute, then guitar, then all fade) D C D C ...
