SLOW BURN

(STEVE DAFOE 2005) (COPYRIGHTED)



VERSE 1:

BARET 6th FRET(no other note)>>>BARET 3rd FRET(no other note)

KIDS UP AT THE BREAK OF DAWN....
LUNCHES MADE , GOTTA FEED THE DOG...
BY 8 AM, WE ALL GOTTA BE GONE....
NEED MY CAFFEINE, TO SHAKE THIS FOG
SOME COFFEE TO BRING ME ALONG...
SOME COFFEE TO LIFT THIS FOG....


CHORUS 1:

BARET 6th> 5TH>4th>2nd------SLIDE TO 5th FRET (no other note)
AND IT'S A SLOW BURN......


AS THE COFFEE FINDS ITS'... WAY


NICE TO KNOW IT'S MY... TURN


A GREAT WAY TO START MY WORK DAY


AND IT'S A SLOW.... BURN


A SLOW....BURN..........








VERSE 2:

BARET 6th FRET(no other note)>>>BARET 3rd FRET(no other note)
WORK DAY IS FINALLY DONE
HOMEWORK DONE, KIDS OFF TO BED
KISSES FOR MY DAUGHTER AND SON
ECHO'S OF THE DAY POUNDING IN MY HEAD
TIRED OF THE PAIN IN MY HEAD
OH, THE POUNDING IN MY HEAD....



CHORUS 2:

BARET 6th> 5TH>4th>2nd-----SLIDE TO 5th FRET (no other note)

AND IT'S A SLOW BURN......


AS I DRINK A COOL BEER


AND AS THE DARKNESS DRAWS NEAR


ONLY THE SILENCE I HEAR........


AS THE BEER MAKES IT WAY


ITS A SLOW BURN


VERSE 3:

BARET 6th FRET(no other note)>>>BARET 3rd FRET(no other note)

THOSE BIG BROWN EYES
DRAW ME TO HER SIDE
WITH US, THERE'S NO DISGUISE
I'LL HANG ON FOR THE RIDE
LET LOVE BE OUR GUIDE...
JUST HANG ON FOR THE RIDE

CHORUS 3:

BARET 6th> 5TH>4th>2nd------SLIDE TO 5th FRET (no other note)

AND IT'S A SLOW BURN

A HOT EMBER IN MY BELLY CREATING A YEARN

JUST SIZZLING ONLY FOR HER

'CAUSE IT'S A SLOW BURN

BARET 1st-----SLIDE TO 4th FRET (no other note)


A SLOW BURN.........

BARET 3rd-----SLIDE TO 6th FRET (no other note)


A SLOW BURN.........
