Beside Me I Dreamed I Stopped Smoking Might as Well Saturday Evening Down in Verdun
Car Keys Id Rather Walk Old Man Santo Spill Yer Guts
Carla I Tried Old Mutt Murphy Ten Years Younger
Couldnt We Joes Report from the AfterLife Perpetual Motion Water & Stone
Flower of the middle Class   Rosy Rear View When I was a Young Man

       

Beside Me

Beside Me

 

I'm a dog-eared book with a well-thumbed look

I'm a scratchy 45

I'm a true fish tale from the belly of the whale

Trying to swim through all the jive

But still you know that...

 

If you look for me, I'll be here

(If you look I'll be here)

Turn my rock over, I'll appear

(Turn over the rock)

I'll cook you supper, we can split a beer

(If I have any here)

'Cause I know you know

I need you here

Beside me

(need you here

besi-i-ide me)

 

I'm a nine-sided nickel, I'm a cheese-and-pickle sarnie

Made on yesterday's bread

I'm a rotary 'phone, I'm a last bus home

With a song going round in my head

But still you know that...

 

If you look for me, I'll be here

(If you look I'll be here)

Turn my rock over, I'll appear

(Turn over the rock)

I'll cook you supper, we can split a beer

(If I have any here)

'Cause I know you know

I need you here

Beside me

(need you here

besi-i-ide me)

 

I didn't think about classes to play this old guitar

At home I drink out of glasses, that I brought home from bars

An old piggy-bank is my retirement plan

And the clothes on my back come from the Sally Ann

The babble from Babylon says I'm rabble & only half a man

But I try to raise a family merrily, happily, do the best I can.

 

I'm an old leather jacket, I'm a slim wage packet

Trying to stretch until next weekend

I'm a three-speed bike on a ten-mile hike

But I'll make it right to the end

But still you know that...

 

If you look for me, I'll be here

(If you look I'll be here)

Turn my rock over, I'll appear

(Turn over the rock)

I'll cook you supper, we can split a beer

(If I have any here)

'Cause I know you know

I need you here

Beside me

(need you here

besi-i-ide me)
