I?M HOLDING YOU

     E									B7
I?m flying [flying] in a frame of my mind that time cannot erase
	B7								E
I?m seein? [seeing] the future , the past, as I lay the present to 
waste
	E						E7				A
I?m scopin? [scoping] all these feelings I have and hoping for them to 
come true
		B7										E
And I?m holding something more precious than fine ore -- baby, I?m 
holding you

	E									B7
I?m breathing [breathing] the fumes of the grid that rid my lobe of 
oxygen
	B7									E
I?m climbin [climbing] the walls to where good and evil make amends
	E						E7					A
I?m trippin?, [tripping] writhin? and squealin?, pukin? , lookin? for 
someone like you
		B7										E
And I?m holding something more precious than fine ore -- baby, I?m 
holding you

JAPANESE COWBOY

INRO: [G...G...C...{C.F.} ]

{C	F}		C		F			C
Like a Japanese cowboy 		   or a brother on skates
F			C		F			G
 Like a blizzard in Georgia                or a train running late
   F		C		F			C
I call out your name girl 	  in the heat of the night 
F		C	    G				 C
 and nobody answers      cause something ain?t right

F		C		F		C
Breakfast at Shoney?s 	at  two ninety-nine
F			C		F			G
Saved me some money and eased up my mind 
F			C		F			G
I?m walking in circles and feeling the pain
F		C	    F			G	F
I?m tossing and turning And crying in vain

C	F		C		F			C
Like a Japanese cowboy 		   or a brother on skates
F			C		F			G
 Like a blizzard in Georgia                or a train running late
   F		C		F			C
I call out your name girl 	  in the heat of the night 
F		C	    G				 C
 and nobody answers      cause something ain?t right

[ JAM:  C...C...F...F...G...G...C...C.F. ]

 	F	C		F			C
I?m riding at midnight 	    and crossing the line
	      F		C		F			  G
From the rain In my windshield       and the tears in my eyes
 		F	C		F		C
Now the bedroom is empty  and I spent my last dime
 		F	C	    F			   G	F			G
And  the lovers are leaving        I got nothing but time,     I got 
you on my mind

CHORUS AND END
PISS UP A ROPE

[INTRO: G...D...G...G...]

	G
My dinner?s on fire while she watches T.V.
	C
And if you ever wonder what it?s like to be me
	G
She takes all my money and leaves me no smokes
D
Yells at my buddies and insults my folks
	G
I ^?m breakin? my back doin the best that I can
	      C
She?s got time for the dog and none for her man
G			 D						G
And I?m no dope, but I can?t cope so hit the fuckin road and piss up a 
rope

		G
A - you can ---  piss.... up a rope
		C
And you can put on your shoes hit the road get truckin?
G
Pack your bag I don?t need the ag
		D
On your knees you big booty bitch start suckin?
	G
You ride my ass like a horse in a saddle
		C
Now you?re up shit?s creek with a turd for a paddle
G		D			G
And I can?t cope, a- piss up a rope

A you can piss up a rope and feel the pissy dribble
You can piss up a rope and watch me giggle
For the last six months I been packin? your bag
You can wash my balls with a warm wet rag
Till my balls feel smooth and soft like silk 
I?m sick of your mouth and your two percent milk
And I can?t cope, a - piss up a rope

But it?s early in the morning and I?m feeling bad again

But if you ever loved me -- you?ll go easy on me now

Fix me up a cup of coffee and in a while I?ll come around
				    Am	D					G Em
I think I?ll spend the dogfood money -- but he?ll love me just the 
same
				C	D					G	Bm Am G
But if you really love me baby -- Help me scrape the mucus off my 
brain

[JAM]

				    Am	  D					G D/F# Em
It?s a shame when morning hurts -- I?ve seen bad and I?ve seen worse
			C	D				G  	Bm Am G
it?s the nature of my being -- I took some money from your purse
				C	D				G   D/F# Em
Now a Frenchman loves to party	 and I know he?s not to blame

You Were the Fool 

E
Bless the father bless the sun, cross your heart cause you're the on
Asus4                         		E
Collecting moonbeams in the morning
E
Curvy sticks and wooden poles assisting you in plugging holes
Asus4                                 			E
Plug them holes until you see straight through to the minds eye


D                                            		A
Think about it turn around and go back to the quiet sound
      Am7                                      	A6/7sus4
Of Jim and Dan prancing around the pool
                         E                         A            E
You were the fool, and I feel sorry for you, you were the fool
                      D                      		A      E
But there's something you can do


You can wash your arm in a pool of mud, you can chop a tree to prevent 
a flood
You can speak with a turtle just by flipping him around
You can build a boat and sail the sea, you can buy a moat and forge a 
key
Initiate the sequence, create catastrophe


CHORUS


REPEAT 1st VERSE


D                                                     A
Think about it turn around and go back to the quiet sound
      Am7                                     	 A6/7sus4
Of Jim and Dan prancing around the pool
                           E                      A            E
You were the fool, and I feel sorry for you, you were the fool
                      D                      	        C
