Topic: We're About Out of Money

More sentiment about the state of the economy in the world today. Kind of blusy so you can play it as fast or slow as you like with whatever mood that suits you.

{t: We're About Out of Money}
{st: By Jeff Gilpin}
{c: July 12, 2012}
Capo 2
Intro - Verse 1
[A7]We're about out of money
[D7]Borrowing more everyday
[G]One day there'll come a reckoning
Be[C]fore it happens I just got to [G]saaaaay... [G7]

Verse 2
[A7]We can't get any money
From a [D7]bank that's already broke
[G]Why should we call the firefighters
When [C]all that's left is just [Em]smoke [Em7]

Verse 3
Because it's [A7]hard to fix a problem
[D7]That's been broke for a while
[G]Might as well spend like a sprint to the end
[C]Sink the old ship with some [Em]style [Em7]

Verse 4
And we [A7]can't pay the banks back
[D7]Can't even get a loan
[G]Can't put ourselves out of the misery
That [C]seems to just keep on [Em]growin' [Em7]

Verse 5
[A7]Forget all those lessons we learned
[D7]Then forget what we forgot
[G]Pour another flaming hot cuppa suffering
And [C]burn our hands with the [Em]pot [Em7]

Interlude
[A7][D7][G][C][Em][Em7]

Verse 6
Our [A7]children are gonna remember
[D7]They're gonna spit on all of our graves
[G]Thanks for the mess that you left us
[C]How else should they be[Em]have [Em7]

Verse 7
Because [A7]we're about out of money
[D7]That is our cross to bear
But [G]not one soul wants to bear that weight
Pre[C]tending how much we [Em]care [Em7]

Outro - Verse 8
[A7]We care about keeping on working
[D7]Care about looking ahead
[G]Hoping we can ride the wave out
Until [C]long [G]after we're [C]dead [C7]
[/song]

Re: We're About Out of Money

Yeah, jets, you pretty much hit the nail on the head.

I have finally found happiness in my life.  Guitars, singing, beer and camping.  And they all intertwine wonderfully.

Re: We're About Out of Money

Great lyrics and very fitting to the current situation many of us are facing at the moment. I like how you have a string of verses together, rather than the standard verse chorus structure. This really helps to get your message across.
