Written after a conversation with my friend Eddie Martin.

lyrics

Intro Riff in D
Verse
D G
I have never been an emotional Genius.
D G
I have never learned to dance like little kids without a care.
D G
I’ve cared, but what I cared about was useless.
D G
I could never get beyond the pretty objects on the shelf.
Chorus
Asus2 G Asus2 G
Slow Learner, such a slow Learner.
I see that many things I learned were rotten.
But like Eddie says I got to chose where some folks never could.
I day dream of how I could go back and fix it.
But my fixing tends to generate the need for more fixes.
Slow Learner such a slow Learner.

Solo G G G G D D D D G G G G D D D D A A G G Intro Riff

I’ve burned the starter down to ashes,
As I sit and turn the key again and again.
Now I’m unbuckling this safety harness
Of this time machine I find myself strapped to.
Slow Learner, such a slow Learner
Bridge
Asus2 G
I’m slow, I’m slow, I know it’s true. It’s took me years to tie these shoes.
Asus2 G
And when I think I have the plan, it’s time to start over again.
Asus2 G
Such a slow Learner.
