I put some of these up a while ago in the Official Chord/Tab Request thread.  Some of the lyrics need to be checked.


Country Song

G
Well it’s been a long time since I’ve had a drink of alcohol
                                                                    C
Since the babies grieved and grandma lost her leg
                                                                  G
There ain’t no sense in dragging the lake anymore
                 D                                                            G
There are bats in the belfry and there’s liquor in the store

Well I’ve had a look or two at her figure at times
That girl in her tight-wearing bra driving me out of my mind
And there ain’t no sense remembering nothing for score
Cause my dad fought the Japs in the war and…
…and then there ain’t any more

               C
If I was thinking about the Lisa  huh
                G
How she tempted me in the basement
D                                    G
Recording every noise I made
C                                                             G
There weren’t no sense in what they had to say
                       D
Cause they’re trying to kill me
                                           G
And they say it’s judgment day

G
When I think of her lips, the way she had ‘em at the store that night
C                                                    G
The undertaker was waiting in the parking lot
C                                                                             G
She told me I’d be going to find myself in a desperate way
D                                            G
It was the best moment of my life

              C
If you think that they’ll find you
                            G
It really doesn’t matter
           C                                              G
I’ll try my best to save you from the flatter
                C                                                              D
There ain’t no sense in crying cause I’m gonna win in the end
 G                                     C                      G
And you’ll all be sitting around having a good time


Mrs. Daniel Johnston

C                               G
It’s gonna be a long night
                C
She’s the one we all love
                     F
And we’ve always thought much of her
C                                     G
Seen her picture on the wall

                  C
She’s the one we all dream of
                  F
She’s the one that we inspire
                 C                      G7                C
She’s the girl who’s always been on our mind

F
Marilyn Monroe, you’ve what it takes
         G
And I love you

        C
She’s not really dead
         F
She lives in my head
                C                             G7
She’s the girl who makes me feel light
                 C
And she’s been on my TV
F
So many precious times
            C             G7            C
I just love dear Marilyn so much

F                                                        G
Marilyn Monroe, I love so much all my life


C                                   F
Some sweet day, we’ll meet on that shore
           C          G7                 C
And Marilyn Monroe will be mine


History Of Our Love

Two ways of playing the chorus chords

A        X-0-2-2-2-0
A/G#   4-X-2-2-2-0
A/G     3-X-2-2-2-0
A/F#    2-X-2-2-2-0

Or

A   X-0-2-2-2-0
Amaj7  X-0-2-1-2-0
A7   X-0-2-0-2-0
A6   X-0-4-2-2-0

A       Em      A     G      A      F      A     G       D
(bass note lick: f-g-a-b-c-d-e-f)

She was apart from me
I found another girl for a while
It didn’t work out
I was just a loser
Poor loser

A   Amaj7/G#     A7/G  A/F#     F    G      A
Love, it let me down
Like a nightmare, you weren’t around
Love, there was none
Probably somewhere else, there was no fun

No one was there
I thought what’s the use
Till I found out
I’d lost her again
It’s a sin

Love, it disappointed me
I thought it was true, it was taken from me
Love, oh can’t you see
Someone lied to me, oh how I suffered

If there’s any justice
Let it be forever
Some fear that justice
Could be never
But it’s ever

Love, it kept me going
To make it through my broken life
Love, I had a chance
But it was gone before I knew it

She must have been watching
As I walked all through the town
Looking for love without knowing
As everybody put me down
Like a clown

Love, it’s around
For any fool who believes
Love, it’s beautiful
It relieves a saddened heart

I saw her long ago
Pretty flowers in her hair
She worked at the funeral
I wondered if I could get a discount
On a mount

Love, you weren’t my friend
And I remember you from way back when
Love, you were my shining star
And I haven’t really gone that far I’ve looked at death (Huh)

Rock Around the Christmas Tree

  E
Rock and roll round the Christmas tree
Everything is you and me
  B
Rockin’ the night away
Rockin’ the night away
  E
Gonna rock the Christmas tree
Everything is you and me
  B
Rockin’ the night away
Rockin’ the night away
  D             F             Em             A
Da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
(repeat)

Rockin’ the night away
(repeat)

Da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da

Wishing You Well

These chords sound pretty nice for the “Wishing You Well” part

Ebmaj7  X-6-8-7-X-X   or   X-6-5-7-X-X  or  X-X-1-3-3-X  or X-X-1-3-3-3
D7   X-5-7-5-X-X  or  X-5-4-5-X-X  or  X-X-0-2-1-X  or X-X-0-2-1-2
G7   3-5-3-4-6-3

G                       F                        G
You said you’d be at a certain place
G                    F                     G
I waited there till the end of time
Ebmaj7           D7
Wishing you well
G                         G7
As I spent time in hell

You said you’d make sure I was alright
But you jumped on a plane and left me in flight
Seeing you off
Almost knowing you’d return

Someone said you had gotten a divorce
I was thinking I’d be next in line of course
Hoping you’d be mine
Rejection is what I fear

Em
It makes a world of difference
Oh, how I love you
Em
No matter what they say of us
Oh, how I love you
                 Dm                         G
Because I love you, you’re the one
           Dm                     G
Who brought me back to life

You said there was a time for us
Somehow that day has always been
Freaked out on love
Reliving old memories

There was a love much stronger than us both
Only we two could know
Wishing you well
As I spend time in hell

We’ve been apart for so long
As the hours pass and the years disappear
Eating all the time
Feeding the monster inside

It makes a world of difference
Oh, how I love you
No matter what they say of us
Oh, how I love you
Because I love you, you’re the one
That brought me back to life
And I love you, you’re my wife
And I’ve loved you all my life
And I love, you’re my wife
And I’ve loved all my life


Everlasting Love

Intro:  C    F    C    G7

   F               G
|  1  2  3  4 |  1  2  3  4  |  (8 times)

I had a welcome mat
But you never came around
I left my light on
But you were nowhere to be found
I thought an afterthought
Maybe I was forgotten
Never asked me for my name
But I wasn’t even in the book

C         
Seems like a love that tried
F
Somehow was on our side
C
We fell in love so deeply
G7
An everlasting kind of love
C
And love was on our side
F
There was no place to hide
C
It seemed to mean so much
G7                                   C
An everlasting kind of love

Years ago I was at your door
Asking you for directions
You said you loved another
And I wasn’t even mentioned
As I play piano
I get this eerie feeling
You were never really there
I guess I must be dreaming

Seems how I really tried
But our love was denied
Somehow it was a lie
An everlasting kind of love
Then you took me for a ride
I was so hurt inside
You smiled and then you cried
An everlasting kind of love

Mom and dad said I sure was lost
Just all the time make-believing
Just what is the difference
In my heart I’m always there
How can you in the art room
You said you had to go-oh
I took it out on a shopping cart
Screaming in my mind “It isn’t so”

Guess that’s the way it goes
You seem to love, I suppose
But I was at the end of my rope
An everlasting kind of love
I can’t tell you how I love
The shining stars above
With no ill thoughts about you
An everlasting kind of love

I took a walk, I was so in love
But I had nowhere to go
Everywhere I looked, I swear
I saw you in every window
Till I died inside
From being all alone
Your love carried me on
I just kept on dreaming of your love

Seems like a love that tried
Somehow was on our side
What could we have done to save
An everlasting kind of love
And love was on our side
It seemed to mean so much
Could… couldn’t… lost touch
An everlasting kind of love

Seems like a love that tried
Somehow was on our side
We fell in love so deeply
An everlasting kind of love
Seems like a love that tried
Somehow was on our side
What could we have done to save
An everlasting kind of love

Oh yeah, oh no, oh no, no, no

COUNTRY SONG

Well, it's been a long time since I've had a drink of alcohol
Since the babies grieved and grandma lost a leg
There ain't no sense in draggin' the lake anymore
There are bats in the belfry and there's liquor at the store

Oh I've had a look or two at her figure at times
That girl in her tight wearin' bra drivin' me out of my mind
And there ain't no sense in rememberin' nothin' for score
'Cause my dad fought the japs in the war and  and
And there ain't any more

If I was thinkin' about Thelesa
How she tempted me in the basement
Recording every noise I made
There weren't no sense in what they had to say
'Cause they're tryin' to kill me and they say it's judgement day

~break~

When I think of her lips the way she had 'em at the store that night
The undertaker was waitin' in the parking lot
She told me I'd be going to find myself in a desperate way
It was the best moment of my life

If you think that they'll find you it really doesn't matter
I'll try my best to save you from the flatterer
There ain't no sense in cryin'  'cause I'm gonna win in the end
And you'll all be sittin'  'round  havin' a good time

*****************************************

EVERLASTING LOVE
I had a welcome mat but you never came around
I left my light on but you were nowhere to be found
I thought an afterthought that maybe I was forgotten
You never asked me for my name but I wasn't even in the book

Seems like a love that tried
Somehow was on our side
We fell in love so deeply
An everlasting kind of love

And love was on our side
There was no place to hide
It seemed to mean so much
An everlasting kind of love

Years ago I was at your door asking you for directions
You said you loved another and I wasn't even mentioned
As I played piano I'd get this eerie feeling
You were never really there
I guess I must be dreaming

Seems how I really tried
But our love was denied
Somehow it was a lie
An everlasting kind of love

Then you took me for a ride
I was so hurt inside
You smiled and then you cried
An everlasting kind of love

Mom and Dad said I sure was lost since all the time make-believin'
Just what is the difference - In my heart I'm always there
Huggin' you in the art room
You said you had to go
I took it out on a shopping cart
Screamin' in my mind it isn't so

Guess that's the way it goes
You seemed to love I suppose
But I was at the end of my rope
An everlasting kind of love

I can't tell you how I loved
The shining stars above
With no ill thoughts about ya
An everlasting kind of love

I took a walk - I was so in love
But I had nowhere to go
Everywhere I looked - I swear - I saw you in every window
Til I died inside from being all alone
Your love carried me on
I just kept on dreaming of your love

Seems like a love that tried
Somehow was on our side
What could we have done to save
An everlasting kind of love

And love was on our side
It seemed to mean so much
Couldn't - couldn't -
Lost touch
An everlasting kind of love

Seems like a love that tried
Somehow was on our side
We fell in love so deeply
An everlasting kind of love

Seems like a love that tried
Somehow was on our side
What could we have done to save
An everlasting kind of love

Oh yeah
Oh no
Oh no
No, no, no

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

MRS. DANIEL JOHNSTON

It's gonna be a long night

She's the one we all love
And we've always thought much of her
Seen her picture on the wall

She's the one we all dream of
She's the one that we inspire
She's the girl who's always been on our mind

Marilyn Monroe you've got what it takes
And I love you

She's not really dead
She lives in my head
She's the girl who makes me feel alive
And she's been on my TV so many precious times
I just love dear Marilyn so much

Marilyn Monroe I love you so much
All my life 
Ooh ooh oooh

Some sweet day we'll meet on that shore
And Marilyn Monroe will be mine

WISHING YOU WELL

You said you'd be at a certain place
I waited there 'til the end of time
Wishing you well as I spend time in hell

You said you'd make sure I was all right
But you jumped on a plane and left me in flight
Seeing you off  almost knowing you'd return

Someone said you had gotten a divorce
I was thinking I'd be next in line of course
Hoping you'd be mine
Rejection is what I fear

It makes a world of difference
Oh how I love you
No matter what they say of us
Oh how I love you

Because I love you
You're the one
Who brought me back to life

You said there was a time for us
Somehow that day has always been
Freaked out on love
Reliving old memories

There was a love much stronger than us both
Only we two could know
Wishing you well as I spend time in hell

We've been apart for so long
As the hours pass and the years disappear
Eating all the time
Feeding the monster inside

It makes a world of difference
Oh how I love you
No matter what they say of us
Oh how I love you

Because I love you
You're the one that brought me back to life
And I love you, you're my wife
And I've loved you all my life

And I love you, you're my wife
And I've loved you all my life

And I love you, you're my wife
And I've loved you all my life

And I love you, you're my wife
And I've loved you all my life

DON'T PLAY CARDS WITH SATAN

Don't play cards with Satan
He'll deal you an awful hand
Don't play cards with Satan
He'll deal you an awful hand
Did I ever stop and tell you
I am a desperate man

I thought I saw a bluebird sitting on a post
I thought I saw a bluebird sitting on a post
Shiver down my spine
I thought it was the Holy Ghost

I heard the word before and I knew that it was good
I heard the word before and I knew that it was good
Somebody oughta do like the good book should

I heard the voice of SATAN crying in the woods
I heard the voice of SATAN crying in the woods
I saw my own heart laying black with blood

Don't play cards with Satan
He'll deal you an awful hand
Don't play cards with Satan
He'll deal you an awful hand
(please believe me)
Did I ever stop and tell you
I am a desperate man
A desperate man

Take it

SATAN!  SATAN!  SATAN!

I'M  NERVOUS

I'm nervous and I'm sad
I'm sorry and I'm mad

Saw the frame of a beautiful woman
Silhouetted by the moon
Saw a million lonely orphans
Licking blood from a spoon

I'm nervous and I'm sad
I'm sorry and I'm mad

HISTORY OF OUR LOVE

She was apart from me
I found another girl for awhile
It didn't work out
I was just a loser
Poor loser

Love -  It let me down
Like a nightmare
You weren't around

Love - There was none
Probably somewhere else
There was no fun

No one was there
I thought  ' what's the use '
'Til I found out I'd lost her again
It's a sin

Love - It disappointed me
I thought it was true
It was taken from me

Love - Oh can't you see
Someone lied to me
Oh how I suffer

If there's any justice
Let it be forever
Some fear that justice could be never
But it's ever

Love - It kept me goin'
To make it through my broken life

Love - I had a chance
But it was gone before I knew it

She must have been watching
'Cause I walked all through the town
Looking for love without knowing
That everybody put me down
Like a clown

Love - It's around for any fool who believes
Love - It's beautiful
It relieves the saddened heart

I saw her long ago
Pretty flowers in her hair
She worked at the funeral
I wondered if I could get a discount on a mount

Love - You were my friend
And I remember you from way back when
Love - You were my shining star
I haven't really gone that far ..
_ _ _ _

..the last four syllables i can't quite decipher................any clues?

mystery solved..?

last four syllables to lyrics of HISTORY OF OUR LOVE:

"ALONG THAT PATH"

as in:

I haven't really gone that far
Along that path

here's the whole song with the missing lyric:

HISTORY OF OUR LOVE

She was apart from me
I found another girl for awhile
It didn't work out
I was just a loser
Poor loser

Love -  It let me down
Like a nightmare
You weren't around

Love - There was none

'Til I found out I'd lost her again

It was taken from me

Love - Oh can't you see

Oh how I suffer

If there's any justice
Let it be forever
Some fear that justice could be never
But it's ever

Love - It kept me goin'
To make it through my broken life

Love - I had a chance
But it was gone before I knew it

She must have been watching
'Cause I walked all through the town
Looking for love without knowing
That everybody put me down

Do you by chance know the full lyrics to "Have Respect", I would very much appreciate it!

sure thing..  here ya go..  this is the version from 'RESPECT', 1985

HAVE RESPECT

Everybody's got their own life
Everbody's got their own hair to comb

Have respect
Have respect

Everybody has to live
Everybody has to die

Have respect
Have respect

Everybody has to laugh
Everybody has to cry

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

the 'everybody..' couplets remind me of
one of my favorite beatles songs..
'i've got a feeling'

..Everybody had a hard year
Everybody had a good time
Everybody had a wet dream
Everybody saw the sun shine
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Everybody had a good year
Everybody let their hair down
Everybody pulled their socks up
Everybody put their foot down
oh yeah

& etc. ..   

OH YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
