POT HEAD

Songs of Pain (1983), Early Recordings Volume I (2003)

 

Man you look like old manís eyes

When I saw you in that room

And now youíre on tour

They booked you in the asylum

 

You work so hard at being a buffoon

And now you ainít got no incentive left

You popped your own balloon

 

You wanted to be somebody

But you ainít nobody

You ainít got no body

Youíre just a head

Youíre just a pothead

I heard one day they said you got so high

You ate up a chicken head and it was still alive

I have some friends who swear you did so donít deny

 

Some day youíre gonna get so messed up

Youíll eat the head off your kid

And wonít you be sorry, potheadÖ

 

You brag to all your friends

About the fun you had last night

I wonder if you realize you forgot to brush your teeth

And then youíll come a-bumminí

Asking for some money

You even tried to roll the sacred pages

And you burnt your lip

 

That lip is has a trench in it

Where that wild weed sits

Sucking like a parasite

Of any sense you might have left

 

You say that you are happy

And you like stormy weather

Well I think that youíre just dumb

And you donít know any better

 

You play your rock and roll guitar

You say youíre gonna be a big star

But everyone in this neighborhood

Knows just who you are

 

No I ainít tryiní to be hard

I donít mean to be cruel

Iím just tryiní to say something thatíll shockÖ

You into going backÖ to school

Or maybe at least reality

In this year

 

You wanted to be somebody

But you ainít nobody

You ainít got no body

Youíre just a head

CHORDS - thanks to Zack

For the B7/D# chord try   X-6-4-4-4-5  or just use B7

Sliding up to this D7 sounds nice X-0-7-7-7-8
