No Capo
G
I met a man in a rock and roll
D
band he said won't you come with me
Em
I let him know that I could
C
not go you see I get mine for free

G
We are all just soldiers in
D
this battlefield of life
Em
One thing that's for certain
C
is my burning appetite

G
Step inside the emotional ride
D
I could use some company
Em
Illusionary is so damn scary
C
I call my best friend Flea

G
This Ticonderoga is an
D
element that shines
Em
Connected by the great unknown
C
between us there are lines

G
Yes I told her that
D
I'm the older cat
Em
Can I scratch your back all day
C
I would not have it any other way, well

G
Means so much to me
D
Can you see the we
Em
What are we ever gonna do when
C
all I want to be is next to you

G
I took a girl from the underworld
D
and I held her way too tight
Em
When it's all been said and done
C
she was not up for the fight

G
We are all just soldiers
D
in this open field of time
Em
Hoping to get with you when
C
you get right with your mind

G
It's my favorite
D
So I savor it
Em
I must report that life is short
C
So of your love I'll take ten quarts well

G
There's no end to this
D
Don't pretend to miss
Em
You and you would not repent
C
for sitting on my elephant and

G
Am I crazy to
D
Join the lazy zoo
Em
All these human butterflies and
C
Cactus flowers swollen eyes and
G
I want the devil's share
D
Of you I do declare
Em
Again I'm asking can I do
C
When all these animals want to be just like you

G
I met a girl with long black hair
D
and she opened up so wide
Em
A daffodil growing in Brazil and
C
I picked her for my bride

G
We are all just soldiers in this
D
epic loving flight
Em
And no one that I know has ever
C
really done it right

G
Done it right
D
Done it right
Em
Done it right
C
Done it right
