Lyrics

 

Half-Fast Blues (8 bar Blues)

By Ricky Shaw (2005)


I don?t know what key I?m in

How will I play this song?

What am I doing up on this stage?

Oh Lord, it?s all gone wrong!

 

Oh, help me

I just gotta get through

Do I play it fast or play it slow

I don?t know what to do

I can?t find the tempo for these

Half-Fast Blues

 

I wanted to learn to play guitar

from a tender age

And boys, I swear I thought I was ready

to get up on this stage

 

So help me

But now I gotta get through

Do I play it fast or play it slow?

I don?t know what to do

I can?t find the tempo for these

Half-Fast Blues

 


Oh my Lord what have I done

I?m singing off key

And all these folks out on the floor

They?re staring straight at me

 

Oh, help me

It?s all bad news

Do I play it fast or play it slow

I don?t know what to do

I can?t find the tempo for these

Half-Fast Blues

 

If I get through this evening

There?ll be a lesson learned

Play at home in my bedroom

My pride won?t get burned

 

So help me

I?m almost through

Do I play it fast or play it slow?

I don?t know what to do

I can?t find the tempo for these

Half-Fast Blues
