United Breaks Guitars Song 2

Author: Dave Carroll

This is just of one of the songs from country singer Dave Carroll, who
decided to take it on United Airlines for avoiding their responsibility when
they smashed his appreciated guitar...they never realized that, for a musician,
the guitar is part of your life!...so this is the second song on the trilogy
...have fun with it!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-UoERHaSQg (as played on this YouTube Video)

D         Gmaj7         D                Bmin7
What did you mean when you said you were sorry?
D     A7sus4      D
I'm a bit confused
D       Gmaj7         D          Bmin7
I think you are all for wrecking my guitar 
D     A7sus4      D
But you don't think you do

G	                   A9                D9
I found a guy who fixed for twelve hundred bucks 
But you tell me that you’re sorry
D9	        A7
And it's my tough luck 
G		D9			A7
United sees no need to make anything right
Oh, Mrs. Irlwig!
A7sus4		     D
We don't need to fight

A7	     D		G
If you just come to your senses
D		     G
Accept the consequences
		D		Bmin7
Of you letting certain baggage handlers
G			    A
Smash my property

D 		   G
We could be best buddies
D		       G
But our friendship has been muddied
 D	    Bmin7  G	  A     D
By a flawed United Airlines policy

(Same chords as first verse)
I sense tone in your last couple emails
Why is that the case?
Is it that I've got questions
You've got the answers
You don't wanna face

You've gonne dark and silent as a submarine
Leaving me hanging like Apollo thirteen 
Adrift in space alone with no ending side
Oh, Mrs. Irlwig way!
We don't need to fight

Lyrics and Music Transcription: Jaime Alejandro Martinez (Bustarviejo, Madrid, Spain). 


The song is played on C# or Db on the YouTube video and as it is originally
recorded, I assume to accommodate to brass or other wind instruments, but I 
have transposed it to D in this transcription. In order to play it in 
original key you just have to lower every chord or single note by half a 

English is not my first language so you might find some mistakes on lyrics. I 
tried my best and I hope there is no mistakes on them,but if you find any,
and there will be for sure, sorry...enjoy it!
