Words and Song Structure

[Over Verse Riff]

Born in the shed with the guitar on
Jam the shtick to do for gigs
Bits and pieces of the workin' pieces
Jam the shtick to do for gigs.
Now it took me and D. Boon and George's stench
To put it up on stage
Define the practice and jam econo

[Over Chorus Riff]

It's a just a tour spiel, tour spiel, tour spiel

[Over Verse Riff]

I dreamed I was E. Bloom but I woke up Joe Bouchard
In some town out on the road.
Had my leather boots on just like Richard told me
Like some hack on the Spectors Tour

[Solo - Am pentatonic (not tabbed here)]

[Turn around, play these chords, open positions: G - Am - F - C]

[Over Chorus Riff]

tour spiel, tour spiel, tour spiel

[Over Verse Riff]

Well you've got your guitar and your practice amp
You travel the USA in a van
And you're always counting on some situation
So you'll write the song on command
When the guitar's turned off and the gas tank's empty
When the typewriter's on and my head is empty
To really find me, I've got to look inside me

[Over Chorus Riff]

Tour Spiel, Tour Spiel, Tour Spiel
