              E                  A                 E
There's only two songs in me and I just wrote the third
            E                              F#              B
Don't know where I got the inspiration or how I wrote the words
           E                            A               E
Spent my whole life just digging up my music's shallow grave
        F#m       A               B               E
For the two songs in me and the third one I just made

Verse 1:
   A                            E                
A rich man once told me -"hey, life's a funny thing"
   A                             B               
A poor man once told me that he can't afford to speak
    Ab                        A               
Now I'm in the middle like a bird without a beak


Verse 2:
So I went to the president and I asked old whats-his-name
Has he ever gotten writer's block or something like the same?
He just started talking like he was on T.V.
                E                     B                  E
"If there's just two songs in ya boy, what do you want from me?"

Verse 3:
So I bought myself some denim pants and a silver guitar
But I flatly told the ladies - you'll still have to call me 'sir'
'Cause I have to keep my self-respect or I'll never be a star
                    E                    A       
Since there's just two songs in me and this is
Number three
