T-Bone Burnett recorded this song for the Roky Erikson tribute
CD Where the Pyramid Meets the Eye. The song is called
"Nothing in Return" and it goes like this...

		Nothing in Return (Erikson)
Verse 1:
	E
	I call your name in the midnight

	A		   B
	But you don't hear me at all

	E
	I love you so dearly and nearly

	A		   B
	But you don't love me at all

Chorus:         A			 B
	There's nothin in this big round world that's worse

	E  E/D#  C#m  C#m/B
	Hu--ur---ur---rts

	A			   B		E
	Than payin out 'n receivin nothin in return

Verse 2:
	Every day and night I dial your number
	But you never answer the phone
	Are you really not there when I call you?
	What gives you so much chance to roam?

			- chorus -

Bridge: A         B    E  E/D#  C#m  C#m/B
	If I only knew how to get you
	       A				      B
	Well I tried all I know and failed except for lovin you so

Verse 3:
	I sought you out and found out your name first
	But my name you never seem to have called
	How in this world can I date you
	When you won't give me a call?

			- chorus -
			- bridge -
			- verse 1 -
			- chorus -

End:	   E  E/D#  C#m  C#m/B
	Oh no---oh---oh

	A                     B            E
	Payin out 'n receivin nothin in return

---------------------------------------------------------------
some notes:

The progression E  E/D#  C#m  C#m/B indicates A descending
bass line, namely the *notes* E, D#, C#, B. I play the E
chord which starts this progression at the 7th fret and
then play the C#m chord at the 4th fret.
