Mid Life Crisis (2010)

(Open C tuning )
The verse of Mid-life Crisis is just a C chord with a descending bass line. So C C/B C/A C/G C/F C/E C/D C/D

I play the a descending riff by hitting the bass note once, and then strumming the strings above the bass note in open C

(3rd string ) the following are the frets to hit the bass notes
5 th 4th
I had 14 ways to clog up the scenery
2nd Open
Wore feathers in my hair so you could see me
4th String:
5th 4th
Folks would gather around my table
Just to hear what I had to say

Stories about how life could kill ya
Served up with a shot of tequila
A radical squirrel with her head half shaved
And bones that found by the side of a grave

C(open) D (Bar 2nd fret) G (Bar 7th fret)
But Oh, I’m invisible now
Oh Yeah baby, yeah, yeah, yeah I’m invisible now

Standing barefoot on the side of a freeway
Leaving the bar, coming home to a three way
Finding the meaning of an ancient scripture
Carved in a crumbling wall

Two dozen tunes that I heard all at once
Out of my head and on paper by lunch
And endless supply of all I could want
That you’d never find in a mall

But oh, I’m invisible now
Oh yeah baby, yeah, yeah, yeah, I’m invisible now

Girls on one side and in my pocket
Boys to the left and in a rock band
You’d start out wanting to scorn me
But by tomorrow, you’d be doing my laundry

And even when I had my babies
Life slowed down but people praised me
Hips were used for something useful
Give back to humanities pot

But oh I’m invisible now
Oh yeah baby yeah yeah yeah
I’m in visible now

Everybody wanted me to calm down
Before I wound up underground
Put that bottle of whiskey down
Get the bill right out of my nose

There’s a party going down in another decade
Stained the wallpaper made it fade
Now I just keep pushing till I get paid
Try to put a little something away

Because Oh, I’m invisible now
Oh yeah baby yeah, yeah yeah I’m invisible now
I said oh, I’m invisible now
Of yeah momma, yeah , yeah, yeah I’m invisible now
