You Never Can Tell Chuck Berry


[C] It was a teenage wedding and the old folks wished 'em well
You could see that Pierre did truly love the mademoi[G7]selle
And now the young monsieur and madame
Have rung the chapel bell
C'est la vie say the old folks it goes to show you never can [C] tell


[C] They furnished off an apartment
With a two room Roebuck sale
The coolerator was crammed with TV dinners and ginger [G7] ale
But when Pierre found work
The little money comin' worked out well
C'est la vie say the old folks it goes to show you never can [C] tell


[C] They had a hi-fi phono boy did they let it blast
Seven hundred little records all rock rhythm and [G7] jazz
But when the sun went down the rapid tempo of the music fell
C'est la vie say the old folks it goes to show you never can [C] tell


Instrumental


[C] They bought a souped up jitney 'twas a cherry red '53
They drove it down to New Orleans
To celebrate their anniversa[G7]ry
It was there that Pierre was wedded to the lovely mademoiselle
C'est la vie say the old folks it goes to show you never can [C] tell


[C] It was a teenage wedding and the old folks wished 'em well
You could see that Pierre did truly love the mademoi[G7]selle
And now the young monsieur and madame
Have rung the chapel bell
C'est la vie say the old folks it goes to show you never can [C] tell

Me & Bobby McGee

 

G Busted flat in Baton Rouge, headin' for the trains,

Feelin' nearly faded as my D7 jeans.

D7 Bobby thumbed a diesel down just before it rained,

Took us all the way to New Or-G-leans.

G I took my harpoon out of my dirty red bandana

And was blowin' sad while G7 Bobby sang the C blues,

With them windshield wipers slappin' time and

G Bobby clappin' hands D7 we sang up every song

That driver G knew.

 

C Freedom's just another word for G nothin' left to lose,

D7 And nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's G free,

C Feelin' good was easy, Lord, G when Bobby sang the blues,

And D7 buddy, that was good enough for me,

Good enough for me and my Bobby G McGee.

 

G From the coalmines of Kentucky to the California sun,

Bobby shared the secrets of my D7 soul,

Standin' right beside me through everythin' I done,

And every night she kept me from the G cold.

G Then somewhere near Salinas, Lord, I let her slip away,

She was lookin' for G7 the home I hope she'll C find,

Well I'd trade all my tomorrows for a single yesterday,

G Holdin' Bobby's D7 body close to G mine.

 

C Freedom's just another word for G nothin' left to lose,

D7 And nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's G free,

C Feelin' good was easy, Lord, G when Bobby sang the blues,

And D7 buddy, that was good enough for me,

Good enough for me and my Bobby G McGee.

 

G la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la G la-la-la-la-la

G la-la-la-la me and Bobby D7 McGee,

D7 la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la

D7 la-la-la-la, me and Bobby G McGee,

 

C Freedom's just another word for G nothin' left to lose,

D7 And nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's G free,

C Feelin' good was easy, Lord, G when Bobby sang the blues,

And D7 buddy, that was good enough for me,

Good enough for me and my Bobby G McGee.

Who We Are:

We are a group of old and new friends, who meet together to share companionship and to work on practical projects.

Everyone has something unique to offer and Men’s Sheds are the perfect opportunity to share your knowledge, skills and experience, don't let them go to waste, we are all still learning.

Come and join us so we can expand 'the things on offer' shown at the bottom of the page.

We want to encourage as many men as possible to join us. You can also contribute to the website if you have some stories, photos, videos or want to try your hand at creative writing.

We are not care professionals, we are not a day centre or a support service for men with complex needs, but we do care, we can give support, some of us are complex and others need some regular company to share hobbies and stories. Also the grub is always good :-)
