Blue Mandolin
©2015 Greg Lambert

There's frost on the window
Pizza on the floor
Dishes in the kitchen
From the week before

I got clothes in the dryer
But I can't pay the power bill
The guitar is in the pawn shop
My last six- pack just got killed


I've been playing sad songs
Ever since you left
I sold the old piano
I shot the banjo to death

I've been wailing in the dark
I can't believe the shape I'm in
With a faded red harmonica
And this blue mandolin

I got crumbs on the sofa
Ants in my pants
I know I should do something
About my circumstance

I'll just let 'em bite me
While I try to play
I don't even know the chords
And it don't matter anyway



I've been so high strung
How could I have been so dumb
