Already I'm so lonesome I could cry...









This song is my new project. Here are the tabs for it for those interested to play it on the guitar.

Leaving on a jet plane - tabs

LEAVING ON A JET PLANE
John Denver


D7 G C
All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go,

G C
I'm standing here outside the door

G C D7
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye.

G C
But the dawn is breakin', it's early morn',

G C
The Taxi's waitin', he's blowin' his horn.

G C D7
Already I'm so lonesome I could die.


G C
So kiss me and smile for me,

G C
Tell me that you'll wait for me,

G Am D7
Hold me like you never let me go.

G C
'Cause I'm leaving on a jet plane,

G C D7
Don't know when I'll be back again.

G C D7
Oh babe, I hate to go.

And for those who don't know the chords here are the basics:

As I killed the caterpillar...



As I killed the caterpillar
Fell into a curious thriller
Could not become a butterfly...

As I killed the caterpillar
I started to end my life
Fell into a curious thriller
Could not become a butterfly

To choose you now into my life
Wanna be your butterfly

Smile, smile, smile at me
hold me tight and I feel free
Smile, smile, smile at me
hold me tight and I feel free

To choose you now into my life
Wanna be your butterfly

Smile at me
and I feel free
to choose you now into my life
wanna be your butterfly

Smile at me
and I feel free
to choose you now into my life
wanna be your butterfly.

London - Art of the state

This is the place where art takes various urban forms, shapes we're not used to. Vandalism becomes art.

Going slightly mad.


(David Gilmour/Richard Wright/Polly Samson)

As you look around this room tonight
Settle in your seat and dim the lights
Do you want my blood, do you want my tears
What do you want,
What do you want from me?
Should I sing until I can't sing any more
Play these strings until my fingers are raw
You're so hard to please
What do you want from me?

Do you think that I know something you don't know
What do you want from me?
If I don't promise you the answers would you go
What do you want from me?
Should I stand out in the rain
Do you want me to make a daisy chain for you
I'm not the one you need
What do you want from me?

You can have anything you want
You can drift, you can dream, even walk on water
Anything you want

You can own everything you see
Sell your soul for complete control
Is that really what you need

You can lose yourself this night
See inside there is nothing to hide
Turn and face the light

What do you want from me?

Ugly Truths

We all shout we want the truth but how many of us really want to hear it? How many of us can handle it? So stop asking me questions. You're not gonna like what's on the dark side of the moon.

Ugly Truths


"What is it, Granda? Is it a toad?"

"I’m not sure, dear. My eyesight isn’t what it was. We’ll need to get closer. "

"It’s very ugly."

"Oh, I see what it is."

"What? What is it?"

"A truth."

"What’s a truth?"

"Goodness, me. I thought they were extinct."

"What’s a truth, Granda, and why does it have to be so ugly?"

"Oh, truths were all ugly, dear. Most of them anyway. Some of them were quite gruesome in fact. That’s why they started eradicating them before you were born. I wonder how this one managed to hang on so long."

"What’s eradi…?"

"People started getting rid of them."

"Should I squash it? Can I squash it, Granda?"

"Wait! Wait. Hold your horses. Let's get a good look at it. I want to see what kind it is. There were lots of different kinds of truth. It might be something new altogether. A new strain."

"Well, I don’t like it."

"No, not many people did, my dear. Lies were much more colourful, adaptable and interesting. And there were so many of them."

"Granda! What are you doing?"

"Oh, nothing. I just thought I’d dig it up and take it home. See what it grows into."

"You mean it’ll get bigger?"

"Yes, and probably uglier. The biggest truths were really hideous. People could hardly bear to look at them."

"Ugh, Granda. I’ll be ill if I have to look at that much longer."

"Well, some truths can make you feel like you’re ill when you’re not really ill."

"Why would anyone want to feel ill?"

"It’s a kind of protection."

"I don’t understand."

"Well, imagine every time you had to go out in the rain you felt a little poorly. You’d never go out in the rain would you?"

"No. But I have an umbrella. You can see through it."

"Well, that’s good, too. But if you didn’t have the umbrella what would happen if you went out in the rain?"

"I’d get wet. But if I felt poorly, Mummy would make me a bed on the couch."

"That’s the idea. So you see why truths used to be a good idea."

"I think so. So why did people get rid of them?"

"Why? Oh, I suppose they all bought umbrellas. We should get going. Your mother’ll be wondering where we are."

"She’ll shout at you if you try and bring that thing into the house. That’s what she does to me."

"Ah, out of the mouths of babes and sucklings…"

"I'm not a baby. I'm six."

"Of course you are, dear. Of course you are."
