[A]Well I woke up this morning, the place was such a wreck
I couldn't reach the bathroom, thought I'd better clear the deck
[D]I tried to call the lawyer and asked him what to do
[A]He referred me to his doctor, who referred me back to you
[E]And when you checked the manual you k[A]ept in side th[D]e case
[D]It said [A]'put it [A/G]in a [A/F#]cool [A/F]dry [A/E]place'
[A]I drove around the city, looking for a room
That was high above the water, where my things could be in tune
[D]There was no one to help me, nobody even cared
[A]I had to go through hell to get those things up there
[E]I paid my first subscription, [A]then I joined the idle [D]race
[D]and they said 's[A]tore it [A/G]in a [A/F#]cool [A/F]dry [A/E]place'
[D]I got guitar, basses, amplifiers and drums
[A]Accordions and mandolins and things that sometimes hum
[D]Cymbals and harmonicas, capos by the score
[E]And lots of things in boxes [A]laying all around the [D]floor
[A]Some places they get mildew and others get too hot
Some places are so damp that everything you got just rots
[D]All kinds of condensation, a direct result of rains
[A]There's not much compensation when everything's been stained
[E]Some have sentimental value that [A]cannot be [D]erased
[D]Go s[A]tore it [A/G]in a [A/F#]cool [A/F]dry [A/E]place
SOLO (Sorry, but I don't have the solo, just play the chords used in the verse)
[D]We got solids and acoustics and some from plywood board
[A]And some are trimmed in leather and some are made with gourds
[D]There's organs and trombones, and reverbs we can use
[E]Lots of dx-7s and [A]old athletic [D]shoes
[A]I bought a great big building that took up one whole block
I made an inventory of all the things in stock
[D]The place was getting longer I was up all night
[A]I used up all my pencils, but I went on despite
[E]The blurring of my vision, the [A]sweat upon my [D]face
[E]I've got to put this stuff away, I [A]mustn't leave a [D]trace
[E]The landlord's breathing down my neck, he [A]says it's a [D]disgrace
[D]So I said '[A]put it [A/G]in a [A/F#]cool, [A/F]dry, [A/E]place.'[A7]
That's basically it for the song. Have fun with it. From, Ryan D. Kemp
