    Default Bedpan Blues - original tune

    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

    Music washes from the soul, the dust of everyday living.
