Jazz Guitar Chord Progressions 2 - Rhythm Changes
Imaj7 vim7 iim7 V7 iiim7 VI7 iim7 V7
Cmaj7 Am7 Dm7 G7 Em7 A7 Dm7 G7
Can't find a paper
Can't find a pencil
Can't keep this old guitar in time
Can't find the right chords,
Goofin on rhythm
Can't find the reason or the rhyme
[Dm7 G7 Am7 A7}] x2
Dm7 G7 Cmaj7 Am7 Dm7 G7 Cmaj (back to pattern1)
I'm going through the motions
calling on any ol' muse
I'm painting by the numbers
I’m foolin with the blues
Let's really talk
not post corporate slogans
Call out the elephant
in the room
They look fine on the outside
Storms rage below
If you never listen
You will never know
