Fish Tailin'
By: Martin Tielli
On the album "Introducing Happiness"
Thanks to Johanna MacDonald for the chords.
 
A                             D
 We were looking for some fun.
A                D        A
 We were looking for some fun.
               D
Seemed like it went forever;
 
I was dumb and it was clever.
 
G/D               D            A
I was looking for someone like you
To keep me ossified the whole day through.
I never thought I'd find you in a bar
Till I crashed my best friend's car.
 
D                  A
"Oh, the shape I'm in.
They used to call it sin
Back in the good old days.
It was useful to be simple."
 
Someone's crashing when the sun comes up.
Someone's driving in a pick-up truck.
Someone's drinking, drinking, drinking
Whiskey, gin, and mugs of bourbon.
 
I was looking for someone like you
To keep me petrified the whole day through.
 
O'boy Joe, the fun had just begun
When I picked up your favorite gun.
You didn't know it wasn't loaded,
But the joke died when you exploded.
