Anyone Have A Melody For these Lyrics

Post by grimbo » Sat Nov 08, 2014 2:39 pm

Get Out Of Here.
At long last I’m getting out of here
I’ve had enough for a lifetime
It’s a one horse town with a two timin’ woman
Didn’t know if I was goin’ or comin’
From now on my life’s goin’ to be mine

I’m fed up being just the boy next door
The guy that works at the grocery store
It’s a deadend town full of cul de sacs
Only one way out – one train track
Can’t play their smalltown games no more

Chorus

I’m certainly getting out of here
My wings have been unclipped
After years of always playing the game
I’ve torn up the whole script

Verse

I’m changing shape, becoming bold
No ties to convention will I hold
I feel like I’m defying gravity
My hometown holds no more for me
That’s the way its gonna be……

A little reworking for song-structure sake... (with Robin's permission, of course!) :? 8-)
"Gettin' Outta Here" - Robin Grimmond & Peter Rahill
Verse 1)
Fed up bein’ just “the boy next door”
The guy that works at the grocery store
In this dead-end town full of cul-de-sacs
One way out… only one train track
Can’t play their small-town games no more
Chorus)
Gettin’ outta here… when I’m done with my beer
Had enough of this place for a lifetime
In this one-horse town… with a two-timin’ woman
From now on I’ll be on my own… time for gettin’ out of here
Verse 2)
Changin’ shape… becomin’ bold
No ties to convention will I hold
I feel like I’m defying gravity
Lifting off… ‘cause I’ve just got to be free
Repeat Chorus
Instrumental break over Verse 2 chords
Bridge)

Gonna make me a brand new play
I’ve torn up my old script
Gotta a new book on the way
Cause I aint gonna take no more of this
Repeat Chorus
Tag for ending)

From now on… I’ll be on my own
I'm gettin' outta here
