I have a feeling this is going to be my only offering this week, because I've been pretty damn grumpy these last few days. Maybe it's my bitter heart as Valentine's Day approaches, or maybe it's just the 4000 ft of snow we've gotten since Monday and I'm tired of shovelling.
Thanks to @ductapeguy for the line "100 proof heartache", a gift from one of his reviews of another of my songs. The line 'your heart wrote me cheques that your ass couldn't cash' came to me in the days following my last breakup.
It's a one shot cell phone recording, not perfect. I'm too tired and grumpy for anything else.
Today I changed the locks on my front door
Not that it matters much
‘cause you don’t come here anymore
And I’m doing alright by myself
I’ve got a dog, a car and this guitar
And I don’t need much else.
F Am Dm
You only ever brought me hard work and
Giving my heart to you was my first mistake
Am Dm F
Now that you’re gone I’m pretty glad
‘cause your heart wrote me
Cheques that your ass couldn’t cash.
Lately I’ve been feeling free
Funny how my life got good
When you walked out on me
Now I’ve got the whole bed to myself
I’m kinda digging not answering
To anybody else
Shots of 100 proof heartache
Is all you ever served
Well, good luck to you
I hope you get what you deserve.
