From the album Stay Primal

I wanted to write the most twisted love song ever. Ronn Benway helped on the lyrics, too.

Hard Times & Cigarettes

Playing notes: New Orleans swing – G7 tuning, barre frets: 0 2 8 7

We go together like hard times and cigarettes
We go together like whiskey and deep regrets
We go together like big block engines
High octane … and car wrecks
We go together like hard times and cigarettes

We go together like darkness and silhouettes
We go together like cities and suffragettes
We go together like spin of roulettes
Roulettes … and Soviets
We go together like hard times and cigarettes

Some people go together like two peas in a pod
But you and me, baby… we’re just a little odd

We go together like Hannibal and etiquettes
We go together like midlife and red Corvettes
We go together like slipknots
Gallows poles and … broken necks
We go together like hard times and cigarettes

We go together like like dervishes and pirouettes
We go together like countdown and empty threats
We go together like pencils
Pencils and old cassettes
We go together like hard times and cigarettes
