Silver Bullet Blues – flash poem

(sung to the tune of any blues riff in G, maybe D)

I been down
I been down so long
I been down so long, just don’t remember up.
No, no I don’t remember up
Not since my girl left
No, not since she left
With that canine half-man
Yeah, that’s all he was
A half a man
But she left anyway
Yeah, she left and now

I been down
I been down so long
I been down so long, just don’t remember up.
No, no I don’t remember up
Not since my girl left
No, not since she came back
That night with her
Half-man wolfman
aaaa-oooo
Yeah she came on back
Just a half-woman now

I been down
I been down so long
I been down so long, just don’t remember up.
No, no I don’t remember up
Not since my girl left
No, not since she came for me
But I was ready for them
Ready for them both
Oh-yeah
With my polished revolver
I been down

(plaintive instrumental solo)

And I cried as I fired
My girl, she was gone
Gone even before she took the shot
And, me, so blue, so down
I put the other five
Into that half-man
Who stole her

I been down
I been down so long
I been down so long, just don’t remember up.
No, no I don’t remember up
Not since my girl left
Not since I got these
Silver bullet blues

Hmm, I wrote this fast, but maybe I’ll do some work on it and get a friend to write some music. Maybe not. Maybe I’ll just put it down to being overworked and tired.

    I like this Sean.

    And, me, so blue, so down
    I put the other five
    Into that half-man
    Who stole her

    Duh, deh-duh-deh, doww! da-dunt, da-dunt,
    Duh, deh-duh-deh, doww! da-dunt, da-dunt,
    Duh, deh-duh-deh, doww! da-dunt, da-dunt,
    etc.

  3. These are such odd lyrics, Sean. It references werewolves, and yet it is so heavy and somber. It’s rather bizarre and I totally like it. Turn it into a song! I’d love to hear it.
