FRANK ZAPPA – Road Ladies  from Chunga’s Revenge
(A Standard Blues in D  - A Zappa song everyone can attempt)
Intro – Solo Organ D major pentatonic run ending in 
C A7/C#  D7
Straight into Verse 1 (Just Organ Fills  between stopping and starting 
until the run up to Bb9 A9) Vocal Frank
D7                                    G7   
Don't it ever get lonesome?  yeah!
                                             F    D
Don't it ever get sad when you go out on the road?
(Spoken oh, there was one time in Minneapolis,  when I thought I had the
clap for sure) 
D7/F#  G                                                C         G7
           Don't it ever get lonesome?  whoa-ho! ( Spoken - lonesome ain't the word)
                                                       F  D
Don't it ever get sad when you go out on a thirty day tour?
          A7                                           G7             
You got nothing but groupies and promoters to love you
                                   D       D7/F# G  Abdim  A7  Bb9  A9
and a pile of laundry by the hotel door.

Verse 2 (conventional  12 Bar Blues ) Vocal Frank
D7
Don't it ever get lonesome, don't it ever give a young man the blues?
G7
Don't it ever get lonesome, don't it ever make a young man wanna go back
D7
home?
          A7                G7
When the P.A. system eats it, and the band plays some of the most terrible
                     D D7/F# G  Abdim  A7  Bb9  A9
shit you've ever known.

Chorus (Same chords as Verse 2 except at end)
Don't you ever miss your house in the country and your hot little mamma too?
Don't you ever miss your house in the country and your hot little mamma too?
Don't you better get a shot from the doctor for what the
D       D7/F# G  Abdim  A7  to Solo over 12 Bar
Road Ladies do to you.

Verse 3 (conventional  12 Bar Blues – same chords) Vocal Howard (flambé)

I know someday I will never, I'll never go out on the road again.
I know someday I will never, I ain't gonna roam the country side. No more.
I'm gonna hang up little holidays yeah
and heal my knees up, from when I was doing on the floor.
See me doing it! see me doing on the floor.

Chorus 
Don't you ever miss your house in the country and your hot little mamma too?
Don't you ever miss your house in the country and your hot little mamma too?
Don't you better get a shot from the doctor for what the
D       D7/F# G  Abdim  A7      
Road Ladies do to you.

End
Eb9  D9
