lyrics

Doin’ Time
by John Beccia

(em-G-em-D, em-G-em-D, em-G-em-D, em-G-em-D, A7......em-G-em-D, em-G-em-D
B7........A7........em-G-em-D, em-G-em-D)

em G em D em G em-D
Oh how I need you like all creatures need the air
em G em D em G em-D A7
But what’s in front of us appears to be unclear........ I’m blind
em G em D, em G em D
A lasting love’s so hard to find
B7 A7 (em G em D)-2X
You say you love me but I wonder if we’re only doin’ time

em G em D em G em-D
Sweet Sally Mae, she’s got a long entangling string
em G em D em G em-D A7
And when I follow her, she shows me everything...... she finds
em G em D, em G em D
I’ll always be one step behind
B7 A7 (em G em D)2X
And when I look back well I wonder if we’re only doin’ time

INSTRUMENTAL- (dm-F-dm-c)-4X....G7.......(dm-F-dm-c) 2X....A7................

em-G em D em G em-D
I like my coffee and I like my cup of tea
em G em D em G em-D A7
What your addiction is, it don’t mean much to me.....it’s fine
em G em D, em G em D
Just getting through the daily grind
B7 A7 (em G em D) 2X
We think we need it but I wonder if we’re only doin’ time


INSTRUMENTAL- (dm-F-dm-c)-4X....G7.......(dm-F-dm-c) 2X....A7................

em G em D em G em-D
We are all prisoners trapped in this moving ring
em G em D em G em-D A7
We all are reaching out to find the same old thing.....defined
em G em D, em G em D
We try hard not to be unkind
B7 A7 (em G em D) 2X
And as we wait here well I wonder if we’re only doin’ time
B7 A7 (em G em-G)
And as we wait here..... well I wonder if we’re only doin’ time
(em G em-G) repeated
