l A l A Asus4 A l
They were taking a trip to Mad-i-son
l D l D Dsus4 D l
Toolin along in a cool Sci-on
l E l D l A l A l
Playin with handpuppets diggin on the stereo

l A l A Asus4 A l
The Scion carried a heavy load
l D l Dsus4 D l
Weighed down traveling on the road-
l E l D l A l A l
Front of the car started rattling real low


l A l A Asus4 A l
Just about to cross the Minnesota line
l D l Dsus4 D l
When the front appendage it started to whine
l E l D l A l A l
and they knew that bumper trim piece was about to go


l A l A Asus4 A l
It was only a needless append-age
l D l D Dsus4 D l
No way to fixing the assemblage
l E l D l A l A l
and the only body shop for miles around was closed

l A l A Asus4 A l
So they left it in a bin in the park
l D l D Dsus4 D l
Anyway it was a-lmost getting dark
l E l D l A l A l
and besides that who else would know


l A l A Asus4 A l
They were just trying to streamline a bit
l D l D Dsus4 D l
After all it just wouldn't fit
l E l D l A l A l
With the guitars, pedals, amps and microphones


l A l A Asus4 A l
When you see this little cool Scion
l D l D Dsus4 D l
With one less piece on the back and front
l E l D l A l A l
Just smile and wave on the way to their next show

trailer floor creaks and sways under footsteps, mile walk to the bus stop, time to go to town

Brakes screech and pull left, door creaks open

Its a six mile ride to the city, Its dark and its cold

Ch 2
D4 A4 Em7 G6
Here the losers and loners sing for lost causes, the nerds and the twerps that didn't pass the test
D4 A4 Em7 G6
Hopelessly heartbroken, less than forsaken, the social outsiders, long gone dissonants

Verse 2
D G D
Bus stops with a growl, door falls open
F#m Em
in front of the mission empty it out
D G D
in what's left of this town
F#m Em
Step off, stand on the sidewalk

hear the choir singing

Ch 3
D4 A4 Em7 G6
We're the losers and loners sing for lost causes, the freaks and the geeks that didn't pass the test

Hopelessly heartbroken, less than forsaken, we're social outsiders, long gone dissonants

So next time you see a lone losing wildflower, Pushing up through the sidewalk, fighting off weedkiller

Just trying to stay strong, help keep up our spirits, Take a deep breath and sing us this song

Track Name: Brown Graphical Frame
Brown Graphical Frame
Andy Getch FAWM 2016 open Esus4 EABEBE chords relative to nut

[A] You left me something to read, [B] a persuasion to believe, [C] the way you believe
[A] You direct me like you lead, [B] propoganda you will feed me, [C] the way you feed
[B] Like you have the key, [C#] for the boy in the middle to be free, [D] you don’t know the boy in the middle is [E] free

Chorus
[E4] Neutral expressions, [A] imprinted impressions, [E4] subjective to weakness and [A] bias
Neural transmissions, and paradisical visions, liars and deceivers make the biggest believers

A brown graphical frame, point to guilt and shame, for doing the best that we can
Hinting to something, a family wanting, to numb their current predicament
Then the bell ringers come, and start beating their drum, of mortal sin the brain washing begins
Till I turn back into the zombie, ringing bells marching to the drumbeat, that I escaped so many years and tears before

Repeat chorus
It’s a different world from then, can’t play that show again, about how you know
there’ll be everlasting life in paradise
Track Name: Defense Against the Everpresent Critic
Defense Against the Everpresent Critic
by Andy Getch
Key of A; 4/4 time; 141 bpm; Repeating chord progression [D][A][E][C]

V1
I need a defense, against the ever present critic
I need a defense, against the ever present critic
The critic is always hiding in me, waiting for a weakness to strike
Everything I do is not good enough, there’s nothing that its gonna like
Everything I do is not good enough, there’s nothing to satisfy inside

V2
I need a defense, against the ever present critic
I need a defense, against the ever present critic
The critic is always sneaking back in me, just when I think it is gone
Everything I do is not perfect enough, everything I do is wrong
Everything I do is not perfect enough, nothing will satisfy for long

Br
The inner critic is a relentless beast
Waking up as I fall asleep
The inner critic has an everpresent feast
Arising from the subconscious deep

Repeat V1

I need a defense, against the ever present critic (repeat and fade)
Track Name: Double Shifts at the Spanish Main
Double Shifts at the Spanish Main
Words and music by Andy Getch and Becky Warren

A F#m D A
“I got customers,” she tells them, when they wanna buy her a drink
A B7 D A
With each glass they down they throw their money around and hit the tip jar with a wink
C#7
They got tan lines where their rings should be
F#m B7
Saccharine in their pleas
Bm F#m D A
The ropes and the rivets at the Spanish Main open their hearts like a master key

CHORUS:
E D A
The old men say, “Hey Betsy, lemme take you away”
E D A
“I got a hotel room with a beach side view and twenty dollar bills for days”
Bm F#m
She just laughs when they start playin’
A G D
Actin’ like she’s the one who needs saving
E A G D
From double shifts at the Spanish Main
E A G D
Double shifts at the Spanish Main


She used to let on she was thinking about it, now she don’t need tips that much
She’s got a man who works days near the Everglades and she and him do well enough
But the Cadillacs keep pulling up
Full of men who call her Buttercup
So she pours ‘em another and brings em their supper and keeps her own mouth shut

CHORUS

Track Name: Songs Of Common Redemption
Songs Of Common Redemption
Andy Getch FAWM 2016 guitar open A7 EAC#GAE

[A7] [D7] [E7] [A7] progression throughout

Well me and Maslow took a trip, in a maglev car turned to a timeship
He wanted me to join his revolution, sing my songs of common redemption

I said “Hey wait, why’d you pick me? With all the great folksingers in history
Theres Bruce and Bob and Woody and Pete, even Bono brought more people to rally”

He said “All those writers could turn a rhyme, but the last one standing in my time
was you the one and only man in black and thats why I came to bring you back”

Maslow started the timeship with a whir, ‘cept we wound up on the other side of the universe
I guess we were some up in heaven in the year 2187.

Well Maslow he’s a pretty smart guy, did more calculatin’ so we could fly
all the way back in time, to Egypt B.C. 1499.

I said “Now where in the heavens are we goin’? I don’t understand a thing your screen is showin’”
He said “We’re goin’ to get the first female Pharoah, a futuremaker named Hetsupeth”

Turns out Hetsupeth needed a n inventor and a bard, thought to myself “can’t be all that hard”
Sing old folk songs of the working man, songs of common redemption

Next I knew we were captured, the silver timneship is what they were after,
Left in the desert led through vineyards, time to learn about going inward.

Maslow and I were in jail for one night, left me with a lute and a light,
I sat down in the cell’s resonation, writing songs of common redemption.

I asked the guards name he said Tyzan, sang him songs of the working man,
Maslow and I passed our audition, with his inventions and my songs of common redemption.

Well the story goes on there’s lots to tell, autographs to sign and books to sell,
Here you can pre-order the next installation, in the series of books about songs of common redemption.
