Inspired by a particularly crappy day. Guitar is 1939 Martin 0-18, vocals are mine all mine, for better of worse.

Bedpan Blues


I got 15 diagnoses
With names from A to Z
That’s 14 more than any man should have
Now can’t you see
I take 9 pills in the mornin’
At night I take 10 more
Lord it’s been so long since I’ve have known
Just what I take them for
But there’s one thing I can tell you, oh
As long as I’m a man
I won’t be answerin nature’s call
While lying on no pan

Bedpan blues
Bedpan blues
No matter how you cut it
They ain’t nothin’ but bad news

Instrumental break

I wear multifocal glasses
Got hearing aids as well
My back and hips are artificial
And my back it’s shot to Hell
I wear a mask to help me sleep at night
Got a bag to hold my pee
Lord I’m not sure there’s a part of me
That still works naturally
But as long as I’m still breathing
And can get up on my own
I’m gonna find a way to climb up
On that porcelain throne

Bedpan blues
Bedpan blues
No matter how you cut it
They ain’t nothin but bad news

Barrytone, By all means - have at it. Basic E A B7 in case it wasn't obvious.
