Speak Soft - by poor old lu.

(I know they didn't write it originally, but I am transcribing their adaptation
from the "Straight Six" EP.)  I tried my best to combine guitar & piano in the 
middle part.  Cool chords in this song...the 'baby don't you talk' part of the 
chorus doesn't sound right without the vocal melody, but I think that is what 
he is playing.  My band Leslie Can't Love plays this song so I thought I would 
transcribe it.  It sounds like Aaron Sprinkle is using a Phase or
Phase-shifter from the 70's.

he goes to the dance and falls in love
Years later it's to her he's thinking of
she never spoke once or even looked up, enough

speak soft, baby don't you talk 
speak soft, baby don't you talk to me

Houdini closed himself inside of a box
he didn't have a trick to spring the lock
off the stage the people watched, the clock
prison could be a nice place to live
the bars on the window like bars on a crib
freedom is the least desired gift, to give

speak soft, baby don't you talk to me


[2nd instrumental section]:
repeat F / Am / Bm / G  part.


Jerry had some beers and started to weep
it's time to turn away, it's his time to sleep
don't trouble yourself with seeking peace, go cheap
