Folk Singer  Brendan Benson

"Folk Singer"(Benson/Falkner)
From "Lapalco" (2002)
Intro: G | C | X4
Like a f[G]olk-singer's song I'm m[C]oving on
and I'm n[G]ot the kinda man that a[C]cts very strong
when the g[G]irls are looking on[C],
when the gi[G]rls (when the gi[C]rls are looking on)
If you tied my hands and put chains on my feet
I can picture myself walking down any street
telling people that I meet
"Psst! looks like rain to me (looks like rain to me)
e[G]very single day at el[F]even,I'm home in [Bb]bed in sleep he[C]aven,
A[G]lone 'Cos my g[F]irl leaves at s[Bb]even,ain't got t[C]ime for my bed-in,
s[G]he says "Stop prete[F]nding,you're [Bb]not John Lenn[C]on!"
Will I e[G5]ver get over th[C5]is, having ta[G5]sted your lips with a k[C5]iss?
You can cr[G5]oss me off your l[Cm]ist,take these c[G5]uffs
from off my wr[F5]ists,and drop your fi[G5]sts
Intro X1
As soon as I'm well I'm gonna leave my house
become more of a man and less like a mouse
drive my car down south to the Mississippi's mouth
to the Gulf Of Mexico's mouth I'll be soused
Every girl I made in the shade of esplanade
I saved In a song that I play when I'm afraid
of a full scale air raid from the choices that I made
da da da da de da de da ....
no matter how much you take of each song that i make
Im not fragile, I don't break and I'm down at the lake
and I hope someday you'll have it made
with all that money that you make
It was fun while it lasted but then it was blasted
right out of the water and into Fantastic
now he feels shafted and she's already past it
(she's like elastic and he's just so spastic)
