I waited at least until after dinner to write some lyrics. And then practice a few times. And maybe 3 takes. For what it’s worth, an honest (warbly on the vocals) tribute to the real Rhizome Cowboy
The words/chords ( a few of the extras, like the walking bass line are in the tabs)
C I've been talking about it so long Connectin' it all along G (Gsus4 G) I know every node in these rootlike links on the web F But metric's the name of the game Dm F C Complex theories ignored because of their length G There's been a load of compromisin' F c And not much synthesizing F Dm G (Dm G) But I'm gonna be where the roots are linking' with me F G C (F C) Like a rhizome cowboy C Cmaj7 G C G Rooting out like a tuber spreading under the ground F G C (F C) Like a rhizome cowboy C Cmaj7 G C G Getting tweets and emails from people out of my network G F (walk) And offers comin' to write a book C Well, I really don't mind your course Rigid as bones of my horse G (GSus4 G) But so much of learning today is takin' the wrong way F And I dream that it's not too late Dm F C With a hashtag, open doc, syllabus we all create G Why don't you read Deleuze and Guattari F c You cant teach the same I'm sorry F Dm G (Dm G) I'm walking around with them atop the high plateau F G C (F C) Like a rhizome cowboy C Cmaj7 G C G Rooting out like a tuber spreading under the ground F G C (F C) Like a rhizome cowboy C Cmaj7 G C G Getting tweets and emails from people out of my network
