Out Of Tune Song

(Ralph Covert -Waterdog Music / ASCAP)

Just an out of tune song for an out of tune day
I got home from work and I'm not good for anything
I guess I'll have a beer and play it anyway
Just an ordinary guy with a tangled up life
And dreams and emotions that take me by surprise
I don't know why my life hits me right between the eyes

(Chorus)
Needless to say, it's been another pointless day
But I thought I'd call you up and let you know
There's nothing on my mind but an out of tune song...

I'm an amoeba's grandson in a pair of blue jeans
If the world is a stage I must have got lost between scenes
I read the script but I've forgotten what it means
So I sit on my porch with a beat-up guitar
And I watch the girls as they wander past my yard
If they could see me barbeque I know I'd be a star

Chorus

Please don't get me wrong
I'm in no mood to complain
I can still feel the sun on my face
Standing in the rain

Just an out of tune song that I should forget
From one of those days when it's safer just to quit
Madmen and fools love to dig a bigger pit
So I sit on my porch and I howl at the moon
I've got this aching feeling that it's ending much too soon
If I could just get this song in tune

Chorus
