... or, "Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand".

It's a very, very simple song, just the bassline, some chords, and maybe a guitar every
so often. It's mostly keyboard, however. And the sample is B.B. King going "I been
downhearted baby, ever since the day we met."

   F                                 F
   Jan lays down and wrestles in her sleep
   Moonlight spills on comic books
       Em            F
   And superstars in magazines
     F 					     F
   An old friend calls and tells us where to meet
   Her plane takes off from Baltimore
	Em             F
   And touches down on Bourbon Street

      F 	      F
   We sit outside and argue all night long
   About a god we've never seen
       Em             F
   But never fails to side with me
   F                F
   Sunday comes and all the papers say
   Ma Teresa's joined the mob
   And happy with her full time job

   Do do do do doo do
      F		 F
   Am I alive or thoughts that drift away?
   Does summer come for everyone?
       Em	    F
   Can humans do as prophets say?
	F         F
   And if I die before I learn to speak
	F                           Em
   Can money pay for all the days I lived awake
   But half asleep?

   Do do do do doo do x 2

   A life is time, they teach us growing up
   The seconds ticking killed us all
     Em		     F
   A million years before the fall
	F                 F
   You ride the waves and don't ask where they go
   You swim like lions through the crest
	Em               F
   And bathe yourself on zebra flesh

   I've been downhearted baby,
   I've been downhearted baby,
   	          Em     F
   Ever since the day we met


As always, this is an interpretation of O'Connor's brilliant song. Corrections, btab,
are welcome.
