Sloppy Raw and Dirty

Purchase this song and album on CD Baby!!!

Sloppy Raw and Dirty

Verses E A E A A D E A (bluesy)

Chorus D A E 

She walks up to the bar stool

Everyone knows her name

She must be pushing fifty

but thinks she’s still got game

Her hair is long and greasy

She smells like an old wet mouse

A touch of wine and sleazy 

As she spills it on her blouse

She’s sloppy raw and dirty

and everybody knows

Sloppy raw and dirty

She don’t even clean her toes

No one want’s to order

The choice of drink she has

While her old man plays piano

An old Miles cool jazz

A cougar to the youngsters

The alcohol kicks in

Telling stories of her past days

A life of song and sin

She’s sloppy raw and dirty

and everybody knows

Sloppy raw and dirty

She don’t even wash her clothes

She thinks that she’s an actress

Will someday be a star

She tells this to the waitress

But never leaves the bar

So if you think you’ve got it

If you think you still got game

Look past the bottles to the mirror

You’ve only you to blame

Your sloppy raw and dirty

and everybody knows

Sloppy raw and dirty

You don’t even wipe your nose

Sloppy raw and dirty

and that’s the way it goes

I’ve Got a Problem with Authority

Chords: G C D   Verses: G C A

I’ve got a problem with authority

I’ve got a problem with the police

They like to bother me 

When I’m walking down the street

They ask a lot of questions 

And when I try to answer

They get real mad at me

Then they beat me

I’ve got a problem with authority 

I don’t like the judge or DA

They never give a fair trial

Or a trial at all

Or let me state my case

I’ve got a problem with authority 

My right to counsel is a joke

Five minute sessions shackled 

In an orange jumpsuit  behind bars

In front of everyone in a courtroom 

I’ve got a problem with authority 

Because I can’t afford a lawyer

To protect me from this shit

The rich man walks on a murder charge

The poor man has to take it

The Bill of Rights is a lie

Unless you can buy it

I’ve got a problem with authority 

And it’s not only just me.       

Authority for the sake of authority 

Is tyranny
