     SONG: Cool Dry Place
     ALBUM: Traveling Wilburys Vol. 3

Even though this song is on "TRAVELING WILBURYS VOL. 3", this is only their second and 
final album. This song is good and easy to play. USE A CAPO ON THE SECOND FRET!!! If you 
don't, it just don't sound right

INTRO:  A   D   A  A/G  A/F#  A/F  A/E

Well I woke up this morning, the place was such a wreck

I couldn't reach the bathroom, thought I'd better clear the deck

I tried to call the lawyer and asked him what to do

He referred me to his doctor, who referred me back to you

E                                    A             D
And when you checked the manual you kept in side the case

D       A       A/G  A/F# A/F A/E
It said 'put it in a cool dry place'

I drove around the city, looking for a room

That was high above the water, where my things could be in tune

There was no one to help me, nobody even cared

I had to go through hell to get those things up there

E                             A                      D
I paid my first subscription, then I joined the idle race

D               A       A/G  A/F# A/F A/E
and they said 'store it in a cool dry place'

I got guitar, basses, amplifiers and drums

Accordions and mandolins and things that sometimes hum

Cymbals and harmonicas, capos by the score

E                           A                     D
And lots of things in boxes laying all around the floor

Some places they get mildew and others get too hot

Some places are so damp that everything you got just rots

All kinds of condensation, a direct result of rains

There's not much compensation when everything's been stained

E                                A         D
Some have sentimental value that cannot be erased

D   A       A/G  A/F# A/F A/E
Go store it in a cool dry place

SOLO (Sorry, but I don't have the solo, just play the chords used in the verse)

We got solids and acoustics and some from plywood board

And some are trimmed in leather and some are made with gourds

There's organs and trombones, and reverbs we can use

E                 A            D
Lots of dx-7s and old athletic shoes

I bought a great big building that took up one whole block

I made an inventory of all the things in stock

The place was getting longer I was up all night

I used up all my pencils, but I went on despite

E                              A             D
The blurring of my vision, the sweat upon my face

E                                  A               D
I've got to put this stuff away, I mustn't leave a trace

E                                         A           D
The landlord's breathing down my neck, he says it's a disgrace

D          A      A/G  A/F#  A/F  A/E     A7
So I said 'put it in a cool, dry, place.'

     That's basically it for the song. Have fun with it. From, Ryan D. Kemp
