Capo on 3rd Fret

D G D Gmaj7

D G A7 DOh, where is your inflammatory writ
D G A7 DYour text that would incite a light, "Be lit"
DOur music deserving devotion unswerving
Cry "Do I deserve her?" with unflagging fervor
G A7 DWell, no you do not, if you cannot get over it
Gmaj7 BmBut what's it mean when suddenly we're spent, tell me true
Gmaj7 BmAmbition came and reared its head, and went far from you
Gmaj7 Even mollusks have weddings, though solemn and leaden
BmBut you dirge for the dead, take no jam on your bread
D G A7 DJust a supper of salt and a waltz through your empty bed
F A7And all at once it came to me
Dm FAnd I wrote and hunched 'till four-thirty
Cm Gm But that vestal light
A7 DIt burns out with the night
G7 DmIn spite of all the time that we spent on it
FOne bedraggled ghost of a sonnet
G DWhile outside, the wild boars root
Bm A7Without bending a bough underfoot
COh it breaks my heart
GI don't know how they do it
So don't ask me And as for my inflammatory writ Well, I wrote it an I was not inflamed one bit Advice from the master derailed that disaster He said "Hand that pen over to me, poetaster!" While across the great plains, keening lovely and awful Ululate the last Great American Novels An unlawful lot, left to stutter and freeze, floodlit
D C G A7 DBut at least they didn't run, to their undying credit
