WASN'T THAT A PARTY   Time: 2/2   Tenor: E   Bass: C - D


CHORUS:

1                 *        *   *
Could've been the whiskey
*                 *    *   *
Might've been the gin
*                 *             *          *
Could've been the three or four six-packs, I don't know
    17          *        *
But look at the mess I'm in
   *              4        *   *
My head is like a football
  *                  1     *   *
I think I'm going to die
*        5      *     *
Tell me, me oh, me oh my
*             1      *    *
Wasn't that a party


1              *           *   *
Someone took a grapefruit
*              *     *    *
Wore it like a hat
*     *       *        *       *
I saw someone under my kitchen table
57            *       *
Talking to my old tom cat
          *             4      *
They were talking about hockey
    *               1     *
The cat was talking back
*          5          *          *
Long about then every-thing went black
*             1      *   *
Wasn't that a party           (CHORUS)


    *                  4     *   *
I'm sure it's just my memory
        *         1     *    *
Playing tricks on me
      2       *      *      *
But I think I saw my buddy
        *       *           5     *
Cutting down my neighbour's tree      (CHORUS)

WASN'T THAT A PARTY (PAGE TWO)


*             4      *   *
Billy Joe and Tommy
     *                  1    *   *
Well they went a little far
          2              *          *            *
They were sitting in the back yard, blowing on a sireen
     *          *      5    *
>From somebody's police car


*                 1     *    *
So you see, Your Honour
*             *     *    *
It was all in fun
    *            *          *       *
The little bitty track meet down on main street
    *       57         *          *
Was just to see if the cops could run
          *            4       *    *
Well they run us in to see you
*               1      *     *
In an alcoholic haze
  *        5         *      *
I sure can use those thirty days
      *              1      *   *
To re-cover from the party         (CHORUS)
