E7s4 – F#m#5 E7s4 – F#m#5 –A (2x)
Every year we shed a skin and a square yard of memory

When the dust gets thick we put it in a box or a bag

A7 A6
And cart it off to the sheet metal cell G6sus2 F#m#5 F6
where life goes ah –on , without us

(walk e string F-E-F-G-E to A chord)

E7s4 – F#m#5 E7s4 – F#m#5 -A (2x)
Our little locker is a nightclub that never closes

Where my daughter’s little ponies Prance around in their plastic bags

A7 A6
And a macaroni mermaid with a little of G6sus2 F#m#5
her glitter left
F6 …A
Flirts with the purple-prince of the missing hand

(instrumental bridge)
Open A (at 5fr) to Fmaj 7 (2x)

(chorus)
C --- A open at 5fr

Everything I’ll never need is all in one E7sus4 A

E7s4 – F#m#5 E7s4 – F#m#5 A (2x)
The guy at the desk just emptied out a deadbeat Wednesday night

You can see by the swinging of the keys that he runs the show

A7 A6
He says to me you put it on the card G6sus2 F#m#5
and that won’t be you
F6 ….A
With the big room you’re moving too be a shame to let it all go….

(repeat walk e string F-E-F-G-E to A chord)

F F7

Cmaj7
to vaporize

C- G
tomorrow has come and gone
and you gotta move on and on and on and on....
(2x, end on C)
Track Name: Piece of Equipment
PIECE OF EQUIPMENT

C-F-G
This old heart is a piece of equipment
Left in the rain over the weekend
Dropped in the soup at the Tidy Bowl restaurant
Back to the pot and the cook’s flicking ashes
A
Em A
But youwouldn’t want to know about that
Em A
Not your idea of chewing the fat
Dm Am G
But ho-ney, I got nothing else to do
C-F-G
These old hands are shakin and shrinking
Barely holding the glass that they’re drinking
Picking a nose that can’t take no more
My face wrinkled up like an unsettled score
A Em A
But you don’t wanna hear about it
Em A
I made the bed were agreed on that
Dm Am G
All I wanted was a chance at perfection
Dm Am G
didn’t give a rat’s about any affection
A# – D#
And if we stacked upery single song
A# D#
Where the man realizes, what he done wrong
C# A#
That’s the biggest collection, of liars on the planet
C F C G
Outdone only by the la-dies who’ve bought it
C-F -G
This old huse is so full of infection
My dog Lou can’t even get a connection
He sits outside and howls at the grass
I let him inside and he chews out my ass
A Em A
And even he still talks about you
Em A
Looks at me like you did it to you
Dm Am G
All that I wanted was a chance at perfection
Dm -Am G
