goodbar Song Writers - strutt your stuff (36) RE: Song Writers - strutt your stuff 14 Apr 07


I wrote this in 5 or 10 minutes for my buddy who just dropped out to go fly helicopters. Say what you want, it's my favorite thing I've ever written!

"I Miss Greg"

Dm C G C

C F
I made a couple of beer runs by myself
C G
It worked one time but I didn't have much fun
C F
I couldn't carry much
Am G C
And I was by myself

F C
I don't miss the long walk I miss the walk with you
F G C
I don't miss a heavy backpack I miss having two

It was two underage kids on an epic adventure
With two empty backpacks destined for the unknown
I don't know why I still call it that
'Cause it worked every time

I don't miss the alcohol I miss getting it with you
I don't miss being drunk I miss getting drunk with you

And though it makes me sad I guess it's for the best
'Cause you've got a dream and that's so much more than I have
Just promise to remember me
And those Friday night - double-18 - beer runs at the Shell

'Cause I don't miss the alcohol I miss getting it with you
I don't miss being drunk I miss getting drunk with you
