    Will my soul be re-issued?
    Or is it a limited edition?

    Interesting, I’ve always pronounced it Tee Dee Pree.

    Found a snake in the shed
    I didn't grab it and dance
    I turned 'round and ran
    While pooing my pance

    But that's okay ...I'm doin just fine

    Got a shiny plastic Icon in my car ...
    She's leadin' me to the next local bar ..

    Maybe my Madonna will appear.
    But with luck she'll just be in my rear view mirror

    I did one of these "let's write a song together" threads here last year I think. Went in some unusual directions. I'm not sure I ever followed through on that one. Guess I should try to contribute.

    Bury me when I'm dead
    Take all my guitars to the store
    Ask to talk to old Fred
    He used to call me a bore

    Possibly in Open G... with lashings of slide...

    I've got the T and the P R I
    I've got the T and the P R I
    But O Lord, I cannot find
    My missing D, oh no, my missing D....

    On that day, that day to come
    When all will tremble hear the drum
    When all Telecasters are Fiesta Red
    And the living, the li-i-i-ving, the living will envy the dead!

    Take me home, Sweet Jesus!

    The broken stained glass windows
    Let a little sunlight hit my soul

    The creaky wooden benches
    Only serve to mock my achin' bones

    Over in the corner
    A dusty organ begs to play again

    A stack of worn out bibles
    Whisper all the verses held within

    Now we just need someone to record this one, and being guitar players, complain endlessly about how it could have been better.

    Who is up for the task ? I would do it, but i have got to go the hairdresser on that day.

    My friends all drive Porsche-eez, and I must make amends,

    I work hard all my lifetime, no help from my friends,

    Oh, Lord, wontcha buy me, a Mercedes Benz.

    I dunno about you guys, but I'm having a difficult time visualizing a swinging chariot.


    I wonder if Barry Manilow ever has this problem.

    Down by the river ,
    A crowd begins to grow ..
    Old Preacher's headin' for the bank,
    But he's movin' kinda slow ..

    Suddenly the sound of Gospel,
    Begins to fill the air..
    Get yourself to the river,
    And let your sins ly bare ..

    Singing-
    Wash away my troubles ...
    Wash away my cares,
    Fill my heart with peace ...
    Help me bury this dispair,

    One day I'll rise again ..
    And leave these woes behind,
    I'm walkin' down to the river ...
    Gonna get it right this time
