Play It In Reverse
by the Geezinslaws
[E]Well I was raised on country music
songs about drinking and cheating and losing.
[A]Real sad songs that would make a grown [E]man cry.[B7]
[E]Songs about pain and unemployment,
[A]songs that interfere with life's enj[E]oyment.
[A]you sing about these things, you'[E]re singing about my life.[B7]
[C#m]Well, I think I found me a way to remove the curse[A]
[F#m]Just take a country record, play it in reverse.[B7]
[E]If you take a country song and you play it backwards,
[A]You sober up and you don't cheat on your wife
[A]and your dead dog comes to life![B7]
[E]Your truck gets fixed and you get your job back,
[A]there's money in the bank and you never ever had that fight.
[B7]and everythings all right.[E]
Now if you think that you got problems
I've got one good way to solve 'em
guaranteed to turn your life around.
Tears, divorce, sheer frustration, broken hearts and aggravation
You don't have to go around feeling down.
Well I know this might sound crazy
but it works.
You take a country song and you play it in reverse.
[C#m]Well the roof quits leaking,
[A]the kids behave, you get out [C#m]of jail, the bills get p[A]ayed
[C#m]Your wife quits calling you a lazy bum[A]
[F#m]and your mother in law finally goes back h[B]ome.
and every-[A]-things[B7] all right[E]
I like to use bass runs every time E goes to A meaning: E - F# - G# - A
Great tune! Have fun with it!
