Matchbook Song
Graham Lindsey
capo IV

This ainít no love song
This ainít organized and scripted happenstance
This ainít no ordinary radio selling straining for amends
C             B/G          Am   B/G
It ainít this and it ainít that
C                                                 G
This ainít no sideshow striped out college vomit dance
            F       C
Itís just a song

This ainít Kansas and this ainít Maine
This ainít the stuffing in a scarecrow wearing nothing but the rain
This ainít no cheap and dismal trick or treat di-ag-nosed in a day
              C     B/G     Am  B/G
Itís what you want, so you say
C                                             G 
If you need something more then Iíll be on my way
          F         C
Itís just song

Chorus I
So hereís your posies, hereís my tray
      Am                                        G
What I hope we live long enough to see a better day

This ainít forever, thereís no such thing
This ainít no frantic rag a-waiving for attention in my dreams
This ainít political masturbation masquerading as a theme
Ainít no psychology blowjob for a scream
It could be you or it could be me
But itís just a song

Chorus II
So hereís your hook and heís my line
I apologize, I couldnít kill enough to you with rhyme

Am                                        G
But I promise while these words may not resound
C                                       G
Iíll always be here even if my heart is wrong
F                C
With just a song


When we are strangers 
and there ainít no better place that we can go
This ainít no sensational and cataclysmic centuries show
No high tech prophecy of doom or gold
Iím  only trying find the right road
Itís just a song

Chorus III
So hereís the hook and hereís my line
There ainít nothing at the end, but itís sinking all the time

Well this canít be the only way back down
But itís the only way Iíve got to reach the ground
With just this song
