Ringo Starr

Beaucoups of Blues

One, two
Mama, I guess you have stood and cursed
The day I found that old guitar
When uncle harry died
The one we found in the boot of his old car
I remember how my little fingers blistered
When I tried to learn to play
I bet you never dreamed that old guitar
Would put me where I am today

Yes, it's been a lot of years
I guess it's been an interesting life
No, mam, I never found another woman
That I wanted for a wife
I guess the first time showed us
That I wasn't the domesticated kind
But I don't blame her for getting tired
Of living from a suitcase all the time

Yes, I know sometimes it looks
Like I've just simply thrown my life away
I just always figured that if I hung on
I'd make it big some day
I guess it takes a special breed
To live this life and think the way I do
But you'll be glad to hear that any more
I ain't near as bad to drink

How is Tommy doing with the business
Now that daddy's passed away?
I'm sure daddy always knew that tom
Would be the one to take his place
And when he tried to lecture me
I'd sit and pick and sing and let him nag
But way down deep inside I think
He always knew that hardware ain't my bag

We open Monday night in bolton city
For another two week stand
I wish there was some way that you and tom
Could come and hear my band
Wish I had the time to tell you 'bout the
Places that I've been, the things I saw
And I'll send the fifteen dollars soon
As I get to the club and make a draw

When you're hot, you're hot there
Ah, I mean, ah, when what is
