There’ll Be Some Changes Made

Sound bite

Lyrics

There’ll be a change in the weather and a change in the scene
How is that?
I’m gonna start wearin’ leather and change my routine
I’ll wear dark glasses maybe a toupee
I’ll get down and boogie and become risque
I’ll start wearin’ make-up like jackson and prince
You’ll see me ridin’ in my mercedes benz
Nobody wants you when you just play guitar
There’ll be some changes made tomorrow
There’ll be some changes made

Y’know Chet, you’re never gonna get to play that rock & roll
Why is that?
You’re kinda country, a little bit old
That hurts
But your money for nothin’ and your chicks for free
Well, them groupie girls ain’t what they’re cracked up to be
Well not all of them anyway
Well I’d really like to find out for myself, don’t you know
I’ve had a kind of quiet life down here on music row
Oh I know
Well uh… Like man, what do you think?
Man, I don’t know
I really think that I can make the grade
Daddy-o daddy-o
There’ll be some changes made
I think I was sharp there
Just play one – just play

Yeah
You’ve played before
Watch it, watch it
Stand back boy

Well I’d really like… To find out for myself,
Don’t you know. ‘Cause
Like I said I’ve had a sheltered life
Down here on music row
I don’t believe so
Well what… What do you think mark?
I dunno
I really think that I can make the grade
There’ll be some changes made

Now listen to this I’m gonna play some rock and roll

There’ll be some changes made… Yeah
There’ll be some changes made
Now let’s all play

Anybody hurt?
I learned this at… At summer bible school
Well, I never could trust a saint
I’m only a part-time saint
Pretty good but you’re no Mark Knopfler
What about that one there?
Not all that bad
I like that
I like that
Don’t make me look bad now, don’t make me look bad
Respect for your elders

There’ll be some changes made

Just One Time

Sound bite

Lyrics

If I could see you just one time
Oh how it’d ease my troubled mind
If I could hold you just one time
And then pretend that you’re still mine

Oh, how I miss you so
Oh I need you so
I’d give this heart of mine
If I could see you just one time

Lips that used to thrill me so
They now thrill someone else I know
Gone is the love that once was mine
Wish I could see you just one time

Oh, how I miss you so
Oh I need you so
I’d give this heart of mine
If I could see you just one time

Wish I could relive just one time
Turn back the pages and there I’d find
That same old love that once was mine
Wish I could see you just one time

Oh, how I miss you so
Oh I need you so
I’d give this heart of mine
If I could see you just one time

So Soft, Your Goodbye

Yakety Axe

Sound bite

Lyrics

Poverty stricken but still I’m a-stickin’ to the things I know to be facts
One day it’s feathers and the next day chicken while I’m pickin’ my yakety axe
Ev’rybody says that I never will get far, keepin’ out of work by pickin’ this guitar
Livin’ on a shoe-string, puttin’ off things like a shave and a hair cut

Money don’t matter as long as I scatter a little bit of happiness around
If people keep a grinnin’ I figure I’m a winnin’ my good old yakety sound
City folks go around turnin’ up their noses and countin’ their greenbacks and smellin’ their roses
But I wouldn’t trade my yakety axe, even for a T-bone

I’m confessin’ I never took a lesson, all my notes are a matter of guessin’
Hopin’ they’ll come out in some kinda of manner that’ll make the yakety sound
So if you’re in the mood and your feet start tappin’
And you feel laid back and your hands start clappin’
Then I’ll have done what I wanted to from way back
You’re diggin’ my yakety axe

Now, a pick

The Next Time I’m In Town

Sound bite

Lyrics

Now it’s been somethin’ seein’ you again
In this time we’ve had to spend
You’ve been so good to be around
I thank you for that special thrill
Keep me going on until
The next time I’m in town

Though I won’t be back here for a while
Or hear your laughter, see you smile
And I’ll remember what went down
I can’t tell you how or when
But I’ll be seeing you again
The next time I’m in town

Now the faces and the places range
‘cross the bridge of time and change
Once again I’m homeward bound
There’s one thing I promise you
And that’s another rendezvous
The next time I’m in town

Now it’s been something seeing you again
And in this time we’ve had to spend
You’ve been so good to be around
And I thank you for that special thrill
Keep me goin’ on until
The next time I’m in town
‘Til the next time I’m in town
‘Til the next time I’m in town
