A Few Chords and a Smile
By Edward (Ted) N Sams c.2010

I don’t have any philosophy
The government’s burned my books
I don’t have anyone to love me
‘Cause time has stolen my looks
I don’t have a job
No money in the bank
I don’t own any two point five
Well they’re all out there
Using up the air
Momma used to tell me
That there’s nothing in life that’s fair
All that I have left is just a few chords and a smile
All that I have left is just a few chords and a smile
And we can smile while they make us march another mile
Hope it doesn’t rain ‘cause
I don’t own an umbrella
If it weren’t for the muscles in my cheeks
I’d be a pretty miserable fellow
My dog ran off with the mailman
My wife left me for some cat
They’re all out there
Like a ghost on the stairs
Daddy used to tell me that the circle fits the square
All that I have left is just a few chords and a smile
All that I have left is just a few chords and a smile
And we can smile while they make us march another mile
Man walks into a bar and asks for a match
He says, “tap- tap” imagine that.
Kenock kenock kenock who’s knocking upon my door
It’s a fat cat
With a rubber bat saying
Evil don’t pay boy
I said EEEVVVIIL it don’t pay boy
(Solo)
Well I don’t know what happened to the rest of my life
And I don’t know what happened top my hair
There all up there
Using up the air
Momma used to tell me that there’s nothing in life that’s fair but
All that I have left is just a few chords and a smile
All that I have left is just a few chords and a smile
All that I have left is just a few chords and a smile
All that I have left is just a few chords and a smile

…And we can smile while they make us march another mile
