about

one of my older tunes about a kind old man that lived in our neighborhood.

lyrics

4/4 INTRO G G C D 2x’s
G C D G C D
Clyde don’t sleep so he works in his garden.
G C D G C D
He plant things deep and he dig ‘em up tomorrow.
G C D
He take the medication, he take it just right so
G C D
Clyde won’t twist and die in the moonlight.

(DOOM RIFF! )
C D
His soul is good and his back is strong.
C D
But the neighborhood kids know there’s something very wrong.

When night time comes he breaks out the drop lights.
Clyde won’t let the darkness kill his one delight.
He spread the gravel he tote the bail.
He give away the puppies no they’re not for sale.

His soul is good and his back is strong
But the neighborhood kids know there’s something very wrong.
G C D
Clyde don’t sleep and the doctors don’t know what to say.
G C D
Clyde don’t sleep so he’ll be there till his dying day.
G C D G
Clyde don’t sleep so he’ll be there till his dying day.
