Song Circle Disclaimer

Song Circle Disclaimer Talking Blues  

Dick Thies

Now ya go to song circle, let me tell you what to do

Gotta find a disclaimer that’s right for you

Something that’s fun, but sorta true

Something that explains what you can’t do

    For lack of abilities  There’s lots of possibilities 

Ya know I’m getting’ kinda old and I forget some stuff

My brain can’t work on the lines that are tough

I could read the words from the old Blue Book

But my eyesight’s kinda shaky so its hard to look

    That font’s kinda small     I think they changed the words   


My right shoulder’s acting up and it makes me kinda blue

Got some rotator cuff damage with some tendonitis too 

I could hardly make my fingers go,  to do my banjo pickin’

And holding that heavy banjo it, well it bothered like the dickens

So I’m doing my therapy,   tryin’ to work on my dexterity

Well I got my vaccine shot,    yesterday

My body kinda aches     makes it hard to play

My shoulder is sore   and my fingers hurt

I hope its getting better    so my skill will   revert

Well don’t I just love it,   all my mistakes must be due to COVID

Now before I give it up, I could just play a tune

But my fingers get confused &  don’t know what their doin’

And yesterday’s carpentry was goin’ pretty slick 

‘Til I hammered thumb   now its kinda hard to pick

    But   it might be OK if my strings weren’t old

       And I didn’t have to worry that this capo won’t hold

         Maybe I could just do one a cappella
