Boatload of Blues Words and music by Paul Cullen Burgess 9-15-2012

VERSE 1
E7
Don’t want to hear about your troubles - Don’t want to hear about your ex
A E7
No more whining and complaining - About how your life’s a wreck
B E7
No more games that your playing You got a boatload of the blues

VERSE 2
Your bellyaching and your naggin
Coal at your rainbows end
Your train ain’t stopping at the station
The shabby way you treat your friends
So tired of all your explanations
It’s getting late I gotta go

CHORUS
A
You ain’t holdin all the aces
A E
Your cheatin heart will never do
A B
Well there’s a special place for you now
E E E
You got a boatload of the blues, You got a boatload of the blues, You got a boatload of the blues, -You know the devil get his due

Lead #1 - Ax2 Ex2 Bx1 Ex1 | Lead #2 – Ax1 Ex1 Ax1 B-Bb - Ax1 Ex1 Ax1 B-Bb - Ax1 Ex1 Ax1 B E

VERSE 3
The old boat is sinking fast now
It’s every man for himself
Don’t cha think its time for praying
Good Lord save my soul
I ain’t getting any younger
You got a boatload of the blues

CHORUS
You ain’t holdin all the aces Your cheatin heart will never do
Well there’s a special place for you now
You got a boatload of the blues, You got a boatload of the blues, You got a boatload of the blues, -You know the devil get his due.
