Waitress

from 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.

about

Songs can't always take pieces of your personal life and put them out there for the public, so this song is Bob's attempt at reversing roles, changing circumstances, and detailing situations from an alternative point of view. As with all the songs on this CD, the outcome is positive.

lyrics

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
