2nd verse
Janou said that the meters are red, gonna blow a neurotic fuse
If you show a little, a little pain, unlock a whole lot of truth
Daddy was a young man, his home was livin hell
Mama tried to be so perfect now her minds a padded cell

Also, I played this in standard and I also tried to play it tune down to d standard- and if your tuned down one step it doesn't sound right, the notes don't sound high enough-don't believe me try it both tunings.

I want to post or [tab]
