... 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."

'Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand'
Primitive Radio Gods
(O'Connor, Feather, Feather. Contains samples from "How Blue Can You Get" by Feather and
Feather.)

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

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

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

G
Do do do do doo do x 2

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

G
I've been downhearted baby,
I've been downhearted baby,
Bm C
Ever since the day we met

(repeat)

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

Will money pay for all the days
