Just a little Tamworth ditty….

Small things amuse small minds. I had these words running around my head…

 

Ode to the Capo

Phil said to Lukie “your capo is shit”

“Yeah, I know it, yeah, I know it”

There are gold ones, and silver ones, black ones and blue ones

Every bloody colour of the rainbow

They’ve been left in the boot,

Left in a bag,

Left at home in a different state

Where’s my capo, where’s my capo

Next to “I wrote this song with Allan Caswell”

They all say, where’s my capo

It doesn’t work as well as mine

But I will try it and it will be fine

I think that it is back at the tent

I had it yesterday

I don’t know where it went

Where’s my capo, where’s my capo

I don’t need a capo, says the drummer

“Maybe it would help your playing too!”

The guitarist retorts

Where’s my capo?

In one of my ports

I have a spare, says the new bloke in the band

I’ll give you one because I am a fan

And put some fancy patterns upon it

A guitar looks naked without one on it.

Where’s my capo, where’s my capo

The sound guy has one down the back

The lighting guy drops one from a bulb

Of all of the stories from Tamworth

Of all of the glories from Tamworth

This is the one to be told.

Where’s my capo, I need my capo

The song just won’t sound the same

Where’s my capo, I need my capo

Without one, there’s no hope for fame.
