Chorus:
             F         -         Bb               F
There's only two songs in me and I just wrote the third

           F               -              G              C
don't know where I got the inspiration or how I wrote the words

         F               -             Bb              F
spent my whole life just digging up my music's shallow grave

        Gm        Bb            C                F
for the two songs in me and the third one I just made



1.
  Bb            -              F              -
A rich man once told me - hey, life's a funny thing

  Bb            -               C               -
a poor man once told me that he can't afford to speak

    Am         -             Bb             -
now I'm in the middle like a bird without a beak


(Chorus)


2.
So I went to the president and I asked old whatshisname
has he ever gotten writer's block or something like the same?
he just started talking like he was on tv
        
                Gm        Bb         C                     F
if there's just two songs in ya boy, what do you want from me?



3.
So I bought myself some denim pants and a silver guitar
but I flatly told the ladies - you'll still have to call me 'sir'
'cause I have to keep my self-respect or I'll never be a star

                   Gm        Bb        C    
since there's just two songs in me and this is

-      F
