Short & Tall Tales

You will all know what I do

1.
       C          Bb            F
By the time I was caught in the trap
               C          Am  G
It was already too late
       C         Bb         F
By the time I discovered my error
                  C      Am  G
Too much had been done
       C          Bb
By the time I got out
    F                      C      Am  G
The damage was pretty well total
       C         Bb           F
By the time I convince you in words
              C
He could have everyone.
Am        G
Listen to me!
2.
      C        Bb          F
If we all turn away pretty soon
                       C     Am  G
You will all know what I do
      C           Bb           F
If we all just pretend we will have
                  C     Am  G
No more places to hide
      C            Bb           F
If we all stop and think we can see
                  C     Am G
What we were just isn't anymore
      C            Bb          F
If we talk to each other we'll know
               C
the Wizard has lied.
              Am        G
Why won't you listen to me?
From the musical "The Mad Wizard."

Love's Lost and Found

Can't I get away at all?

Eb          B          Eb      Db
Why can't I dance as I used to do
Eb         Db     Eb   Db
Can't get away at all
Eb          B        Eb      Db
Each time I rise on occasion
Eb             Db          Eb      Db
The music will stumble and falter
   Eb     B            Eb         Db
If only I touched the electric display
     Eb         Db       Eb  Db
That powered me years ago
Eb        B      Bb    Ebm
I could enjoy my naivete
       D                     Am
And forget what I've come to know
Amb5          G
Salad days of innocence
Amb5                  G
Blessed ignorance was bliss
Amb5               G
The depth of my perception
Fm                    Dbmaj7/G
Enhancing what I miss

It's a Wonderful Life




Short & Tall Tales

It's a sine of the times

    G
I'm only half crazy
    Em
The other half's fine
      C
You'd half, too, be crazy
       D
With a life like mine.
    G
I'm off on a tangent
             Em
Where do I cosine?
     C
This song is half there
          G
