Loudon Wainwright III - Muse Blues lyrics

E7						   A7				D7
I went down to library you know the big one way down town
	     E7					A7			  Am
I went down to the library you know the big one way down town
	     E7					E7
I pulled out my spiral notebook and my scripto pencil
D7 	    -        -						2/2 Am G Am E7
These these these are the words that I did put down
	Am          G                 Am         E7
I’m a dud-fire cracker I ain’t got any fuse
I ain’t got no inspiration since I lost my muse
I’m a table with two legs, I’m a spider with five
I’m going down slow muse when will you arrive
4/4      A7			D7
Oh muse where are you?
	E			Am
Oh muse where are you?
2/2 Am G Am E7
You know I eat, drink and I smoke stuff
E     -			     Am G Am E7
I don’t know what to do.

Am G Am E
I went to the mountain and the desert too
I was there lady so where were you
I’m a flattened out wave I ain’t got any curl
I’m an empty old oyster I ain’t got any pearl
4/4 A7		D7
Muse where are you?
E			Am
Oh muse where are you?
2/2 Am G Am E7
You know I eat, drink and I smoke stuff
E     -			     Am G Am E7
I don’t know what to do.
Am		G7			Am					E7
Sit up late, stay up wait. It’s a rule of thumb she’s got to come
Sit up late, stay up wait. It’s a rule of thumb she’s got to come

Am G Am E7
I take lots of cold showers and I go for long walks
I wait for a pitch but the fickle bitch barks
Took a shot of whisky and a snort of cocaine
4/4 Am						A7		     D7
Opened up my head and stuck electrodes in my brain
D7				A7
Oh muse where are you where are you? 
E			Am
Muse where are you?

You know I eat, drink and I smoke stuff
I eat, drink and I smoke stuff
I eat, drink and I smoke stuff
I don’t know what to do.

This is really inaccurate. Much closer, though I haven't tabbed the bass riff that goes throughout the song yet, but on the E string play 2nd fret - 3rd fret.

Intro:
Am D Am
I went down to library you know the big one way down town
D Am
I went down to the library you know the big one way down town
E7
I pulled out my spiral notebook and my scripto pencil
D7 Am (start bass riff)
These these these are the words that I did put down

Verse 1:
Am (with bass riff F# - G - A)
I’m a dud firecracker I ain’t got any fuse
I ain’t got no inspiration since I lost my muse
I’m a table with two legs, I’m a spider with five
D
I’m going down slow muse when will you arrive

Chorus:
Am
Oh muse where are you?
D
Oh muse where are you?
C/G D E
You know I eat, drink and I smoke stuff
I don’t know what to do.

I went to the mountain and the desert too
I was there lady so where were you
I’m a flattened out wave I ain’t got any curl
I’m an empty old oyster I ain’t got any pearl

Chorus

Bridge:
Am
Sit up late, stay up wait. It’s a rule of thumb she’s got to come
Sit up late, stay up wait. It’s a rule of thumb she’s got to come

Verse 3:
I take lots of cold showers and I go for long walks
I wait for a pitch but the fickle bitch barks
Took a shot of whisky and a snort of cocaine
Opened up my head and stuck electrodes in my brain

Final chorus (has an extra line)
Am
Oh muse where are you?
D
Oh muse where are you?
C/G D
You know I eat, drink and I smoke stuff
C/G D
I eat, drink and I smoke stuff
C/G D
I eat, drink and I smoke stuff
E
I don’t know what to do.

Ending:
Am/G Am/F# E Am7 (x02013)
