Partners, Brothers and Friends  Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

[D]The promoter says he wants to cancel
Cause there ain't enough tickets [G]sold
The [A]air conditioner on the bus just broke
and I can't shake this [D]cold
The single lost the bullet,
the singer's losin' his [G]wife;
well I [A]might be crazy but I wouldn't change
A single thing about this [D]life.
Sometimes we feel like champions,
sometimes we just can't [G]win,
somet[A]imes our records hit the top of the charts
or the discount bargain [D]bins.
Through 20 years of touring
We've remained partners, brothers, and [G]friends
we [A]keep it together cause we're sure
we're gonna be big time before it all [D]ends.
Well you [G]know you've got the Nitty Gritty
and [D]Jimmy's got his drums along
then [A]Jeffrey and me and Bobby will be
[D]singing all our favorite songs
Catch the [G]fire from the folks in the front row
fan the [D]flames as the beat gets [G]strong
[D]it's great to [F#]be a [B]part of [A]something
so [G]good that's [A]lasted so [D]long
Well I saw a story in the paper
suddenly the band's big [G]news
the [A]critics all like our records just fine
but they seem a bit conf[D]used
is it folk or rock or country
seems like everybody cares but [G]us
so just [A]leave us an early wakeup call
so we don't miss the [D]bus
[D]The band says it can't stand my latest song, it's too person[G]al
but [A]my first wife's second marriage blew up
she had to get the dang thing annulle[D]d
well if that ain't something to sing about
well you tell me what [G]is
and we'll [A]give it a beat and put it on the street
and we just might have another [D]hit
(Great Song)
