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.

Best of Spirits

Getting it together in the service of a rockin' God

1.
      Bb7
I'm a real fast mover,

I'm a real hot rod.

When I get it together,

think of how I'll serve God.

      Eb7
I'm a real hot pistol,

I'm a real go-getter,
       Bb7
In the middle of summer

Got to wear a sweater

         F7
'Cause I move so fast
               Eb7
But there's so much needs doin'
      Bb7
Gonna take every bit

of energy of you & me
2.
Bb7
Every man & woman yup

And every girl & boy

While we're digging in our heels

We will be jumping for joy

        Eb7
Dad's a real fast mover

Needing all of our brain
        Bb7
Doesn't always have time

to stop and explain

       F7
Moving faster than light
          Eb7
And if we get on the beam
            Bb7
We're gonna shine on brightly

To ignite the Supreme

(Mother Teresa Rocks!)
