"You were as light as a forlorn feather,
but you're wrong, this ain't the song."

lyrics

This Ain’t the Song – Kurt Chaboyer

Instrumental Intro:
D A
D G Em
D A G E
D G DF#mA A

D A
Don’t take the long way to get there,
D G Em
Don’t shine your shoes or comb your hair.
D A G E
Hey, behold, the day is growing old,
D G D F#m A A
And tonight, they say, it’s the best reception.

Don’t hesitate or finish up.
Come out, come out and try your luck.
Don’t miss out like you did the last time,
D G D F#m A A A A
Cause tonight they say it’s the best reception.

F#m G
And you’ve got the right to your heart of leather,
Em A7
And to your face so long.
F#m G
And you were as light as a forlorn feather,
D A7
But you’re wrong, this ain’t the song.

D A
Don’t dwell on the afterlife,
D G Em
Put down the naked picture of your ex-wife.
D A G E
Don’t miss out like you did the last time,
D G D F#m A A A A
Cause tonight they say it’s the best reception.

F#m G
And you’ve got the right to your heart of leather,
Em A7
And to your face so long.
F#m G
And you were as light as a forlorn feather,
D A7
But you’re wrong, this ain’t the song.

Don't take the long way to get there.
There’s no time to lose or stop and stare.
Hey, behold, the day is growing old,
D G D F#m A A A A
And tonight they it’s the best reception.
