Can Anybody Tell Me (#320) 08/27/13 - FtLd Kiss you in the morning Then I wave goodbye Everything seems so normal Everything’s alright Can anybody tell me Can anyone say why One day I have this feeling The next day it’s a lie The next day it’s a lie Thought you would forgive me Thought I could explain Thought that it would somehow All just go away But can anybody tell me.... (break) Can anybody tell me... And if I am the only One who is to blame Because now I am different Because somehow I changed So can anybody tell me.... verse: 29.38.46.57 - 38.46.57 29.38.46.57 - 38.46.57 19.28.36.47 - 28.36.47 29.38.46.57 - 38.46.57 chorus: Amf4 - Ef5 - 29.38.46.57 - 38.46.57 Amf4 - Ef5 - 29.38.46.57 - 38.46.57 Amf4 - Ef5 - 29.38.46.57 - 38.46.57 19.28.36.47 - 28.36.47 - 29.38.46.57 - 38.46.57 19.28.36.47 - 28.36.47 - 29.38.46.57 - 38.46.57 end: 37.46.57 (slow rolling pick) copyright 2013 Robert Ben Mitchell, all rights reserved.

Dust 04:56
Dust (#345) 04/01/14 - FtLd No key in the lock No mail in the box All gone away No dishes in the cupboard No linens in the closet Packed up and run away Blue skies above me Greyness surrounds me Is it enough These ashes I am given The wind has delivered And turned to dust The sound of the silence Where voices once called us Too long too late Your face in the morning Whispering and warning To go or stay Blue skies above me Greyness surrounds me Is it enough These ashes I am living The wind has been given And taken away (break) Blue skies above me Greyness surrounds me Is it enough These ashes I am given The wind has delivered And turned to dust So take down these timbers And burn ‘em all to cinders The memories remain Then let the wind recover These lost and lonely lovers And blow them far away Blue skies above me Greyness surrounds me Is it enough These ashes I deliver The wind has forgiven Returning me to dust intro/end: Amf4 - 47.57.65 - 34.45.53 37.47.55 - 39.49.57 verse: Amf4 - 47.57.65 - 34.46.57 25.36.47 - 27.36.47 Amf4 - 47.56.65 - 34.46.57 34.45.53 - 37.47.55 chorus: 39.49.57 - 37.47.55 34.45.53 - 37.47.55 39.49.57 (all 2x) (rolling pick) copyright 2014 Robert Ben Mitchell, all rights reserved.

Listen 04:43
Listen 05/15/11 - FtLd The people on the land Always try to take But the land could give no more So the city went away And the people walked the desert Looking for a sign Trying to find a way to leave all Their mistakes behind But did you ever listen To the lightening in the spring It brings an early warning Of the time when we must leave So hold on to the past Or just hold on to my hand Then pick up all your memories It’s time to start again Who could tell the difference Who would know how Times leaves you here behind Stuck in the here and now So you try and see the future But you can’t outlive the past And love floats before you Like a ghost out on the tracks But did you ever listen To the waves upon the sand As they wash away our memories They also wash away your sins So hold on to forever Just hold on to what you can And when you can’t remember It is time to start again And in another system A boy lays in his bed Trying to catch the feelings That are running through his head And he wonders if we’re out here In another space and time And if we will still be here When he journeys out to find But did you ever listen To the heart that beats alone Bleeding for a memory As it tries to find a home So hold onto that memory That beats beneath your skin It’s the only one you’ll ever have That makes you want to live verse: 23.44.52 (Bm) - 34.55.63 (G) 36.57.65 (A) - 34.55.63 (G) chorus: 27.47.55 (D) - 32.44.54 (F#m) 23.44.52 (Bm) - 34.55.63 (G) end: 34.55.63 (G) copyright 2011 Robert Ben Mitchell, all rights reserved.

Smiling Jack 06:12
Smiling Jack (4DRB) 07/20/12 - FtLd Down on the river Smiling Jack does say That everything you’re leaving Was never meant to stay Down on the river Smiling Jack does pray That everything you’re taking Was meant to go away And it’s a long It’s a long Long parade Down on the river Smiling Jack stands in the rain Waiting to take the ferry Over to the other side again Down on the river Smiling Jack complains The boatman never gives him Just what for he’s paid So it’s a long Oh it’s a long Long parade And Smiling Jack does battle With every dream you’ve made Tearing down illusions Shoring up all your mistakes Cause Smiling Jack’s a lover Who really loves to hate Everything you think that Makes a god damn bit of sense Cause it’s a long Such a long Long parade And Smiling Jack’s the devil And Smiling Jack’s a saint So pray you to who you want to But they can never take Smiling Jack’s place Cause Smiling Jack’s the only One who knows the way So get you on the river And get you in his grace For it’s a long Oh such a long Long parade Yeah it’s a long It’s a long Long parade intro: Amf5 (Dm) - 28.36.47 (2x) verse: Amf5 (Dm) - 28.36.47 310.412.512 - 312.411.512 310.410.58 - 36.47.57 37.47.55 - Ef6 (A#) chorus: 310.410.58 - 312.411.512 Af5 (Dm) - 28.36.47 end: Af5 (Dm) - Ef6 (A#) 310.410.58 - 312.411.512 Af5 (Dm) - 28.36.47 - Af5 (Dm) copyright 2012 Robert Ben Mitchell, all rights reserved.
