From the little lizard , sung by the big lizard:

Sun Shone Lightly

D D/B C C
The sun shone lightly thru my window this morning
D D/B C G
To bad you weren't here to help me get by
D D/B C G
Ever since you've left my heart has been in mourning
D D/B C G
I lost your love but I still don't know why
G C D
I don't know if I wanna go on living
G C D
I don't think that I will even try
G C D
Life is harder than I ever imagined
G A D
Without you standing here right by my side
C G D D/B C G
I just break down and cry
D D/B C G
Why did you leave me can you can give me a reason
D D/B C G
Was it for the love of another man
D D/B C G
My eyes are weary from the crying hours
D D/B C G
Like the tears that left me I have no where to run
G C D
I don't know if I wanna go on living
G C D
I don't think that I will even try
G C D
Life is harder than I ever imagined
G A D
Without you standing here right by my side
C G D D/B C G
I just break down and cry

SOLO

G C D
I don't know if I wanna go on living
G C D
I don't think that I will even try
G C D
Life is harder than I ever imagined
G A D
Without you standing here right by my side
C G
I just break down and cry


Those chords don't space out right, but you musicians know what to do.

Great choices Tom!

I'm tempted to see your Larry Goshorn, and raise you one George Ed Powell!

You'll notice that in the intro and again later on, I put the quick chord changes in: D_D_A__ A_A_E__ and that actually occurs a lot throughout the song, but I kept things more on the simple side so I wouldn't scare anybody off!

I think you'll enjoy this. It's based on the live version (Takin' the Stage, Extended Versions).

Outstanding stuff Dog, I think a lot of us are going to have to buy guitars now. When is your instructional video coming out ? Great work, all the different lineups and tunes from yesterday through today are getting touched on. I know many truly appreciate your efforts.

Dog, that Misery train must be good, oh well a dupe of it isn't the worst thing.

This is a real nice overlooked song from If The Shoe Fits written by Mike Reilly and Larry Goshorn. I like the way they switch lead vocals and the harmonies are superb.

I CAN ONLY THINK OF YOU

Dog,

Are those chords the same on the kazoo ? Or is there an alternative for that, maybe with capo on the small teeth of the comb ?

Also, are you having fun deciphering George's lyrics ? He sure does make a few key words rough at times ! Must be that slight twang.

Nice job , as always !

Hi Tom,

Funny you should mention it, those chords are even BETTER on the kazoo! As for the capo on the comb, I do believe that you've just invented that! And just when you thought that your ship wouldn't come in! You'll be famous!

George Ed is so great. His phrasings are awesome. I don't mind not understanding him, I just hate to keep embarrassing myself! Oh well. It's for a good cause!
