... 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."

   G (320003@1)                               C (x32010@1)  Jan lays down and wrestles in her sleep
   G (320003@1)  Moonlight spills on comic books
       Bm (x24432@1)          C (x32010@1)  And superstars in magazines
     G (320003@1)				     C (x32010@1)  An old friend calls and tells us where to meet
	G (320003@1)  Her plane takes off from Baltimore
	Bm (x24432@1)           C (x32010@1)  And touches down on Bourbon Street

      G (320003@1)      C (x32010@1)  We sit outside and argue all night long
    G (320003@1)  About a god we've never seen
       Bm (x24432@1)           C (x32010@1)  But never fails to side with me
   G (320003@1)              C (x32010@1)  Sunday comes and all the papers say
   Bm (x24432@1)  Ma Teresa's joined the mob
	C (x32010@1)  And happy with her full time job

   G (320003@1)  Do do do do doo do
      G (320003@1) C (x32010@1)  Am I alive or thoughts that drift away?
        G (320003@1)  Does summer come for everyone?
       Bm (x24432@1)   C (x32010@1)  Can humans do as prophets say?
	G (320003@1)       C (x32010@1)  And if I die before I learn to speak
	G (320003@1)                         Bm (x24432@1)  Can money pay for all the days I lived awake
	C (x32010@1)  But half asleep?

   G (320003@1)  Do do do do doo do x 2

     G (320003@1)	C (x32010@1)  A life is time, they teach us growing up
       G (320003@1)  The seconds ticking killed us all
     Bm (x24432@1)     C (x32010@1)  A million years before the fall
	G (320003@1)               C (x32010@1)  You ride the waves and don't ask where they go
       G (320003@1)  You swim like lions through the crest
	Bm (x24432@1)             C (x32010@1)  And bathe yourself on zebra flesh

   G (320003@1)  I've been downhearted baby,
   I've been downhearted baby,
   	          Bm (x24432@1)   C (x32010@1)  Ever since the day we met


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

Will money pay for all the days
