Just Play

Lyrics and Music ©2008 by Bill Roper

Sometimes you can get a lot of stress relief by pulling out the guitar (or instrument of your choice). I highly recommend it!

When your work is a bore

And you walk out that door
And your mood is a dark shade of gray
And you're hoping to find

Somewhere deep in your mind
A little something better today,
Just let go your cares
As you walk up the stairs
           G                                 Em
‘Cause you know that you've got something to say.
Open the case
In your favorite place
    C            D            G
And grab your guitar and just play.

	Just play
	    C             Am       D
	And send all your worries away.
	     C             Am        D
	It's really been a hell of a day,
             C             A7      D7
	But the music's gonna make it ok.
	So turn on the light

	‘Cause we're playing all night
	In a fine improvisational way.
	Let go your fears
	And clean out your ears
	And grab your guitar and just play.

So you're playing around
And you find a new sound
In the music that you heard long before.
So you're tweaking it here,
Rearranging it there,
And pretty soon you've got a new score.
Yeah, you've got something new
And you're feeling less blue
In a positive, creationist way.
Now you're writing your tune
By the light of the moon
As you grab your guitar and just play.

Now you're looking for words
In the music you've heard
And you see the story starting to form.
She's just one lonely spark
Left alone in the dark
And she only wants to find some place warm.
And she might have a chance
And she might find romance
In the new place where she's going to stay.
Yeah, it might take a while,
But you'll end with a smile
When you grab your guitar and just play.

(Chorus twice to coda)
	And grab your guitar

	‘Cause we're going so far

	From the place where we are.
	         D7sus4   D7
	Set your eye on a star
	         G        D     G
	And just play.
