Short & Tall Tales

The first meal of the day ought to be your best. But isn't always.

1.
F
I just had a waffle,

and I'm really feelin' awful!

Think that waffle had an awful
         C
   lotta mold.
          Gm7
My pat of butter wouldn't melt.

I think I know just how it felt.

That moldy awful waffle really
        F
   felt cold.
2.
My maple syrup I insist, 'll
tell you musta turned to crystal,
'cause the jug I lug around
   won't even pour.
And now this crummy fork of mine
has broken for the final tine
and I can't use it for the what the
   fork it's for.
3.
My chin was wet with spittle
when I spied the peanut brittle
with a taste I mighta died for
   in my youth.
But when I gave a chunk a try
it turned out mighty hard and dry
and now I got that crummy stuff
   stuck in my tooth.
4.
I had to melt away the toffee
so I poured a cup of coffee.
It did the job. I also
   burnt my tongue.
You wonder why I screamed and flailed?
It made me yell, and I inhaled.
There's moldy toffee coffee waffles
   in my lung!

I Bought Me a Horse

I bought me a horse

The horse pleased me

Fed my horse under yonder tree

Horse goes neigh, neigh

Guinea goes paw track paw track

Cat goes fay-lo-fay-lo-fee

Whether or not it's rained

Short & Tall Tales

Pondering power and restraint

          B
Well, it's two per cent vim

and ten per cent vigor
           E
when you gotta go up against
                   B
somebody bigger'n' you

but you do it when you gotta
              Gb
if you got no choice.

B
Half the time you'll find that

as a matter of fact
             E
it's not how big you really are

but how big you act;
        B                                    Gb
you can beat 'em with both hands behind your back
                    B
if you can use your voice.

          Gb
  Keep in mind what Will or was it Roy Rogers might've said
         B
  Doncha argue with a fellah with a foolish head
             Abm                    F
  'Cause the onlooker can't rightly tell
                         Gb7
     Which of you is the fool
Mindful Webworks | Short and Tall Tales | 2 Percent Vim, page 2
             B
Well now I'm goin' on record

as a pacifist
          E
but I'm a hot-tempered guy

and it's hard to resist
         B
throwin' punches when a fellah
                        Gb
is punchin' my eyeballs in.

  B
I realize there's times

when y'gotta fight
          E
but let's make it not here

not with me not tonight;
         B
it's not fightin' that I mind
            Gb
it's just a stupid waste of time
     B
is a sin.

Love's Lost and Found

Another song about how depressing love can be

1.
Cm                       D
She picks you out from   all the men
D             Gm
Suddenly in   love again
Gm                      A
You  can't believe it   feels so  true..
A                   Dm
All the same it's   not for you
Dm                      E
You give your all and   then she leaves
   E                          Am

2.
Am                   B
You wonder why you   feel this way
B             Em
Finally you   hear her say she
Em                              Gb
Loves you, too; the   game's be-gun
Gb            Bm
In the end,   nobody's won
Bm                      Db
You give your all and   then she  leaves...

It can be hard to live in faith.

        Bm         F#m  G
'Tisn't easy being Agon-donter

                 Bm       G        F#m
Heaven won't you come and raise my roof

        Bm        F#m           G
Gets so hard to believe without seeing

             D7         G
Send me your undeniable proof

           D           Ddim         D
(I seem to keep losin' track of the troof)
2.

       Bm            F#m         G
Yes, I know the mere fact that existence exists

        Bm          G                F#m
Or that love can be found means it's true

     Bm         F#m       G
But what I want has to be incontrovertible

         D7            G
I want a postcard from You

           D         Ddim        D
(Won't you send me a postcard or two)
3.

       Bm      F#m           G
I've already received some Enlightenment

        Bm         G               F#m
Figured out how to tell right from wrong

    Bm          F#m        G
But keeping the faith is exhausting I need

       D7             G
To be shown what I've known all along

        D              Ddim      D
(Send a sample of what makes You strong)

     Bm             F#m     G
I've monitored your miracle courses

     Bm         G      F#m
Understand intellectually

  Bm             F#m        G
I know there are angels and midwayers everywhere

D7                          G
Can't they just stop by for tea?

          D         Ddim        D
(I'll schedule them Thursday at three)
