Best of Spirits

No matter what you do, no matter where I am

1.
C                Bb
It isn't easy to settle down
         Ab                 Bb    C
When you see that there's a party going on
C                           Bb
Feel like you're stuck in a little town
       Ab         Bb                   C
When tomorrow the whole world could be gone

Chorus:

   Bb                         C
No matter what I do I get the feeling
   Bb                          C
No matter what you do I got my doubt
   Bb
No matter where I am I'm on the
Ab      Bb      C
outside looking in
2.
C                Bb
It isn't easy to contemplate
            Ab                Bb              C
When you're used to runnilng 'round and being free
C                             Bb
And even though I know you're really great
           Ab        Bb          C
There's so many fine fish in the sea
3.
C                Bb
It isn't easy to purify
          Ab             Bb       C
When your life is just a terrible bore
C                  Bb
I'm not so easy to satisfy
  Ab                Bb       C
I ask you, is there anything more?
4.
C                Bb
It isn't easy to close your eyes
            Ab           Bb              C
When you're gonna go for that instead of this
C                Bb
It isn't easy to do your thing
         Ab               Bb                  C
When you think of all the things you're gonna miss
5.
C                Bb
It isn't easy to do it all
   Ab            Bb             C
It wouldn't even help if I were cloned
C                    Bb
It isn't easy laying down your pipe
     Ab        Bb               C
When everybody wants to get you stoned
6.
C                Bb
It isn't easy to give up booze
Ab           Bb               C
Even when it starts to do you harm
C                       Bb
When the city's waiting up the road,
       Ab             Bb               C
How ya gonna keep yourself down on the farm?
7.
C                Bb
It isn't easy to not eat pork
         Ab              Bb            C
When you smell the bacon frying in the pan
C                          Bb
And even though you know I love New York New York
    Ab           Bb       C
I'm basically an Oklahoma man

Repeat first verse

Short & Tall Tales

Battling the urge to run the red

     A                   G
This light just takes forever
    D             A
and never seems to change
A                          G
I've been sitting here for weeks
    D                    A
And don't you think it's strange

      A                       G
Since I got here the snow has gone
    D                       A
and now there's fresh green grass
A                     G
I've been here so long three times
     D          A
I've had to go for gas

Love's Lost and Found

Abandonment anxiety and devotion

1.
B                           G#m
Why are you so brutal in my dreams?
    C#m                             A
You treat me like we've hardly even met!
B                         G#m
Is there something really wrong with us
   C#m                           A
or am I so afraid that you'll forget?
2.
B                   G#m
Is there a basis in reality
   C#m                          A
or is it just the product of my fears?
B                            G#m
Am I so afraid that you will turn on me
      C#m                     A
after we've been together for so many years?
3.
B                       G#m
Would you really simply turn away
   C#m                        A
if things don't go just as we planned?
B                        G#m
Are we together from the grace of love
      C#m                 A
or to satisfy some animal demand?
4.
    B                        G#m
I'm having those nightmares again.
     C#m                         A
I suppose it should come as no surprise;
   B                              G#m
as you become more precious to me it's no wonder
         C#m                                A
I should fear you're really someone I won't recognize
5.
B                            G#m
Taught to have faith in God alone.
        C#m                         A
There's no one else on whom I can depend.
    B                            G#m
But isn't this the Spirit in our love?
    C#m                               A
And aren't we sworn together 'til the end
6.
               B
of the endless dream?
                G#m
I make this my prayer:
               C#m
I will be for you
           A
and always there
                    G#m7/B
through the endless dream.
