Sometimes I feel... By Jeff Gilpin


August 4th, 2018




verse 1


[C]Sometimes I feel like an old guitar


[F]Struggling to stay in [C]tune.


[F]Usually I can’t get the [C]right sound out,


But I can [G]quickly empty the [G7]room.


Though [F]when I’m right and [C]in my groove


I’ve got [Em]everyone tapping their [Am]toes


[F]Until my tuning goes [C]south again;


When that [G]happens again ah who [Am]knows. [G]




verse 2


[C]Sometimes I feel like a beat up old car


That’s been [F]working too hard for too [C]long.


A [F]life that’s far from [C]interesting story,


But would [G]make a good country [G7]song.


[F]Eventually I find I [C]get you to where


I [Em]thought that you wanted to [Am]go.


While [F]getting in everyone [C]else’s way,


Not [G]driving deliberately [Am]slow.





bridge


And [Em]sometimes I feel that [Am]I’m just me.


And [Em]sometimes that is just [Am]fine.


I’d [Em]rather be me but more [Am]often than not than I'm


That [F]old guitar, or that [G]beat up old [G7]car…or




ending verse


[C]Sometimes I wish I was someone else


Who could [F]do all the stuff I can’t [C]now.


I’d [F]understand all these [C]newest ideas and


[G]Apply all that knowledge some[G7]how.


But I’m [F]not so I’ll have to con[C]tinue to be


The [Em]me that’s got me this [Am]far,


Like the [F]guitar I never can [C]keep in tune


Or that [G]beat up and old


Hard to [G]start when it’s cold


But a [G]reliable and some[F]times dependable [C]car.

Re: Sometimes I Feel...

Well done, Jeff ... lots to think about there, and well played. My late father used to tell me that "If we keep wishing we're someone or somewhere else, we'll never be happy with who or where we are now. Why go through life unhappy?", he'd ask. Thanks for reminding me of him.

Re: Sometimes I Feel...

Thanks TF. I too sometimes look wishfully at others, but then I remember how lucky I am with all my shortcomings.
