lyrics & solo

what an ingenious device
bordem encompasses my time
I don't know what I should do_______

Indulging a moment of your time
seldom the breeder of lies
you won't believe that it's true

Chorus:
they take to the sky
southbound pachyderm

s-s-s-s southbound pachyderm

southbound pachyderm_____________________

1st solo:


e-------------------------------------------------------------|
b----/10-10-10--------------8-8-8-----------------------------|
g--------------10-9-9-9-----------7-5-5-5-7-------------------|
d-------------------------------------------------------------|
a--------------------------------------------5-5-5-7-3--------|
e-------------------------------------------------------------|

e-----------------------------------|
b-----------------------------------|
g--------5--------------------------|
d-------5-5-------------------------|
a----3-3---3-5^7=====---------------|
e-----------------------------------|

pinholes through cardboard at the sun
passing the bucks by one by one
leaving nothing in return

watching the majest blow past
speculating which will be the last
and now there is no reprise

Chorus:

they're filling the sky
southbound pachyderm
southbound pachyderm
southbound pachyderm
southbound pachyderm

2nd solo:

this solo is too overshadowed by rhythm to figure out. just impro vise using the A blues scale.

fade out.

good luck.
