    Default It won her back.

    The love of my life left me.

    I picked up a ukulele.

    I learned how to play one song so far. Aldrine's version of "Out of My League"

    It won her back.






    I am a believer.
    Spread the uke love.

    That confirms much that many of us think about many things. I think.
    "A few chords strummed on a ukulele, enough to please a few others beside yourself, does more good in this world than the combined efforts of all the financiers and politicians that ever lived."

    Wow. If she is that fickle, you better start learning some more songs.

    Probably a good thing the first song you learned wasn't the old Roy Clark rendition of "Thank God and Greyhound She's Gone".

    THANK GOD AND GREYHOUND
    Recorded by Roy Clark
    Words and music by Larry Kingston and Ed Nix

    [C] I've made a small fortune and you [C7] sqandered it [F] all
    You shamed me till [C] I feel about one inch [G7] tall
    But I [C] thought I loved you and I [C7] hoped you would [F] change
    So I gritted my [C] teeth and [G7] didn't com-[C] plain
    Now you come to me; with a [C7] simple good-[F] bye
    You tell me you're [C] leavin' but you don't tell me [G7] why
    Now we're [C] here at the station and you're [C7] getting [F] on
    And all I can think of [C] ... is ...
    Thank [G7] God and Greyhound, you're [C] gone.

    Thank [F] God and Greyhound, you're gone
    I didn't know how much longer I could go [G7] on
    [C] Watchin' you take the respect out of me
    [F] Watchin' you make a total wreck out of [G7] me
    That [C] big diesel motor is a-[F] playin my [C] song
    Thank God and [G7] Greyhound, you're [C] gone.

    Thank God and Greyhound, you're gone
    That load on my mind got lighter when you got on
    That shiny old bus is a beautiful sight
    With the black smoke a-rollin' up around the tail light
    It may sound kinda cruel but I've been silent too long
    Thank God and Greyhound, you're gone.

    TAG: Thank God and Greyhound, you're gone.

    Enjoy,

    Jude

    That whole "chicks-are-attracted-to-guys-who-play-guitars" thing is false. It's definitely "guys-who-play-ukulele", and this story is great supporting evidence.

    You have crossed the line of "man law" my friend. Section 1, para 4... never allow a woman to see romance and effort once in a relationship. Failure to carry on an act of unknowing and "dumb dog" looks will result in the ever growing effort of "making it work".
