With You

by Raggedy Edge

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    The freshman CD of Raggedy Edge, this is the one that is most indicative of their sound as a duo, featuring guitar and mandolin, with a few overdubs, of course, because it is a recording after all. Musical diversity is the name of the game for most Raggedy Edge CDs, and with everything from bluegrass (Bermuda Triangle Breakdown, featuring Pat Carine Sr on banjo) to the jazzy stylings of Facebook Status and Moments in the Morning, this one set the standard for all to follow. Story songs with plenty of upbeat cheer, love songs that shine with hopefulness, fun blues rockers, and a sensitive south of the border salsa to bring it home make sure that you are not mired in a sea of anonymity.

With You 12/16/11 C#m A E B Cm#7-5 C#m A E V1. I can't help the way that I was then, a whole lot wilder than I am today B Cm#7-5 Never at a loss for way too much to say C#m A E Never getting anywhere, riding on a whirlwind, trying too hard not to care B Cm#7-5 That I couldn't get away from there CHORUS G D A G Now that I'm with you my life's turned around You came to me out of the blue D A C G D Now I revel in the love I've found with you, with you V2. I can't wait to see what I will have been / A bit more together than I am today / A little fuzzy as to how I got that way / Ridin' the waves, more stable now my sails are trim/ Holdin' on to breezes coming into play / Deciding if they're going to or from my way V3. I can't wait to see where we will have been / Happy to remember all the trips we took / Looking forward to the ones we've yet to book / Throwin' a rope a-round the whirlin' wind / Holdin' on tight and staying well aware / Trying to remember just how we got there CHORUS BRIDGE: Does it seem an impossible dream has come true? [C G D] Is it time to be all that I am to you? [C G D] V3 CHORUS CHORUS CODA D C G / D C G / D A G/ D

Waitress 03:27
Waitress She's older than she looks but decades younger than she feels [D] A victim of a lot of broken promises and deals [C2] Now she serves up orange juice and coffee with the meals [G] Holding back the sadness her smile cannot conceal [D] She doesn't know the meaning of defeat, no sinking ship Can stop her from succeeding, and she'll never let it slip That every now and then she'd like to take a break and sit A spell would take her straight away but she ain't got time for it (She's a) CHORUS ...waitress, waiting for the day that she can move away [Am Em Bm] Just walk out that door and not think about bills to pay And though she wonders how much her tips will bring today She's thankful for the work and prays somehow everything's gonna be okay [C G D] When she gets home she sits down with her baby by her side He helps her to forget the pain and all the tears she's cried About a picture in her memory of a happy, blushing bride And someone she has not forgot, though he has let her slide As stories go, these days, hers is typical as the rest She'd like her baby's daddy there, but it's probably for the best Instead of being loving, he was jealous and obsessed Comparing then and now, she's clearly not quite as depressed (being a) CHORUS (interlude D-C-G) Her prayers were answered by a man on a business trip When their hands touched as she gave him his burger, drink, and chips They are still together, their love just will not quit And when they they dine, it's on their minds to give a great big tip ( to the) CHORUS 2 Waitress, waiting on them hoping she can move away Just walk out that door and not think about bills to pay And though she wonders how much her tips will bring today She's thankful for the work and prays somehow everything's gonna be okay (Interlude chords D C G) It's gonna be okay, it's gonna be okay

Two Left Feet Opened my eyes I realized Had them no surprise I lost my girlfriend blues Opened my eyes I realized Had them no surprise I lost my girlfriend blues Feel like I got two left feet And nothing to wear but a pair of right-footed shoes I got no rap, broke my strap My flip's a flap, and my flop just will not do I got no rap, broke my strap My flip's a flap, and my flop just will not do Feel like I got two left feet And nothing to wear but a pair of right-footed shoes BRIDGE: Don't | want to dwell on worst case scenarios Experience says cut to the chase, | so I might as well go I know it's a case of negative self- | fulfilled prophecy E Eb D Db C B Bb A When I | turn what could be good into what I don't want it to be Lead Break Every day I hope and pray that everything will be okay But I'm so blue Every day I hope and pray that everything will be okay But I'm so blue I feel like I got two left feet And nothing to wear but a pair of right-footed shoes BRIDGE And I open my eyes and realize Got them no surprise I lost another girlfriend blues Open my eyes and realize Got them no surprise I lost another girlfriend blues Feel like a dancer with two left feet And nothing to wear but a pair of right-footed shoes Instrumental through four lines of verse, tag refrain

TAKE A CHANCE Bob Farley & Lynn Perdzock ©6.11 Sun chases moon across the sky They dance their dance as you and I Find what we will be What's right for you and me Take a chance, give and take Take a chance, hearts may break Take a chance, make no mistake Gotta take a chance for love Birds turn cartwheels in the sky A love embrace in flight Free fall then part An end and a start Take a chance... Flowers wait til night is done Then seek rays from the sun Like petals that unfold Our story will be told Take a chance...

Bermuda Triangle Breakdown It was on the first of May, yes it was such a fine day [E D] That I set sail from Miami, FLA [E D E] My sweet Jenny she went, too, thought it a good thing to do [E D] To sail with me and my Irish setter Blue [E D E] We were barely under way when the ocean turned to gray And I knew this wasn't gonna be one of my better days When the daytime lost its light we knew something wasn't right As we sailed upon a terrifying sight Bigger than a football field, circling round like nothing real With lightning strikes and thunder clapping peals Waves crashed on the deck, Jenny wrapped her arms around my neck When said and done, the best I could expect. CHORUS Sailing the Atlantic when the wind began to roar [A E] Sun turned black, the sea and sky were gray [G D] Compass pointed up, I's going down, but I don't know [F C] Might have been that I had lost my way-ay[E D A] Up turned left, down turned right, and my hair stood up in fright My Irish setter Blue turned pearly white And it didn't take me long to see something else was wrong My sweet Jenny was there then she was gone Now I sail the ocean blue, 'cause there's nothing left to do But find the door my Jenny disappeared through CHORUS One night homeward bound, ran my ship on a beach I found Near a cemetery's sacred hallowed ground I found my Jenny there, hair of gold and skin so fair Sobbing loudly, sitting on the ground still bare As I approached the stone, I grew chilled to the bone The name engraved on the marker was my own INSTR CHORUS CHORUS CODA=E D A

Harmony Motel We met at the Harmony Motel One look and I fell under your spell You said I had great legs when I served you grits and eggs When we met at the Harmony Motel You said you were tired of the road Didn't care to ever haul another load You were easy to persuade instead of passing through you stayed You said you were tired of the road CHORUS Neath the flashing neon lights of the highway sign Twenty bucks a night, a week for 99 You got down on your knees, said you'd take me for your wife Neath the flashing neon lights of the highway sign Down the road at Shawnee Lake The fish jumped right onto the dinner plate We laid by the water, didn't know we made a daughter Down the road at Shawnee Lake I thought you were happy all along Now I've been left to wonder what went wrong I begged you to stay, but you drove away I thought you were happy all along CHORUS I sit on the porch most every night Watching for your rig to come in sight I named our daughter Ann, you know she's your biggest fan And we watch for your rig most every night So won't you come back to the Harmony Motel I'll remind you of that loving way we fell We can stay or we can go, we can make it babe, I know If you come back to the Harmony Motel OUTRO Come get us at the Harmony Motel We're waiting at the Harmony Motel

about

Freshman effort of Raggedy Edge, a close approximation of the duo live, with of course some overdubbing thrown in because it's a recording, so why not. Focusing on guitars and mandolins, with a bluegrass saga that features some banjo playing by friend Pat Carine Sr. Other songs are upbeat story songs, with a couple of love songs, including the first tune the duo wrote together (Take A Chance). Blues beats come into play with Two Left Feet, jazz peaks its nose around the corner in Facebook Status, and a little bit of south of the border from Crazy Blue Skies brings the set home.
