*Note: When playing the chorus chords
anywhere in this song including the outro
you can add a nice ring by using the High
e string on the 3rd fret. It adds in that
nice high pitch like in the song's background.
I strum it like this....

Verse 1:

C*
and all these stupid silly songs
keep trying to catch your ear
i'm trying desperately
it's just so hard to persevere
and even if you listened
i never had much to say
cause it's the same old song
i've written for the day

Chorus:

C          Am            F
shelter me oh genius words
C
just give me strength
C-Am
just to pen these things
F                 C
and give me peace to well her wings
C   Am                      F                C
and oh carry on all you minstrels of the world
C                        Am
we will catch our ladies ear
F                      C
we will win for us the girl

Verse 2:

C*
all these minstrels through the ages
that is really all we are
simply singing for the girl
that makes us try so very hard
to craft the perfect limerick
to wield unending woe
to write such silly songs
and the different never know

(chorus)

Bridge:

C        Am             Dm     Asus
and I'll hold on to the dream
C       Am                Dm          Asus
of this beggar's plea and optimistic fantasy
C             Am        Dm      Asus
just hold the hand and drop the knee
C              Am
you're facing love
Dm               Asus
you're embracing melody

C                        Am
we will catch our ladies ear
F                         C      C-Am-F-C (2x)
we will win for us the girl
