Feed Jake    (video)    (midi)

 

    G    - A - D

 

     D                                  G

1.      I'm standing at the crossroads in life,

                                                  D

    and I don't know where to go.

D                                           

    You know you've got my heart, babe,

A                                        A7

    but my music’s got my soul.

G

    Let me play it one more time,

G

    I’ll tell the truth and make it rhyme,

G                                     A      D

    and hope they understand me.

 

A                                           

    Now I lay me down to sleep,

A

    and pray the Lord my soul to keep.

G                                              D

    If I die before I wake, feed Jake,

                        A            Bm           A       G

he's been a good dog, my best friend, right through it all,

      D                  A                D

if I die before I wake, feed Jake !

 

     D                                       G

2.     Now Broadway's like a sewer,

                                                 D

    bums and hookers everywhere,

D                              

    winos passed out on the sidewalk,

A                              A7

    doesn't anybody care ?

G

    Some say he's worthless, just let him be,

G

    I for one would have to disagree,

G                                  A   D

    and so would their mamas.         

 

 

 

 

 

A                                          

    Now I lay me down to sleep,

A

    and pray the Lord my soul to keep.

G                                              D

    If I die before I wake, feed Jake,

                        A            Bm           A       G

he's been a good dog, my best friend, right through it all,

      D                  A                D

if I die before I wake, feed Jake !

 

    D                                G                             

3.     Now if you get an ear pierced,

                                   D

    some will call you gay,

                        

    but if you drive a pickup,

                              - - - - - - - - - -  G

    they'll say "No, you must be straight !"

G

    What we are and what we ain't,

G

    what we can and what we can't,

G                         A  D

    does it really matter ?        + CHORUS   + G

 

          D                 A                D      - G

+ If I die before I wake, feed Jake !

          D                 A                D      - G - D - G - D

+ If I die before I wake, feed Jake !
