Steve Forbert — Responsibility lyrics

Capo fret 3 [Live version, Ferrara, Italy, 1998]

[A min] Poor ole surrender [G] Mimosa, fin'ly burnt out by the [A min] sun
I feel pretty burnt [C] out myself
When the [G] long, hot summer is [A min] done
[A min] summertime's long been my [G] fav'rite, now I can't grab it no [A min] more
Can't find no time for [C] a fish on the line
Or that [G] swing in the old [A min] Sycamore
I'm in such a [F] hurry now
It [C] starts to [G] worry me
Stop an' smell the roses?
[A min] baby I can't hardly see
[F] no, I aint forgotten just how good it all can be, but
[G] I've got so much [A min] responsibility
Baby, you know how I'm [G] working, sorry I'm busy so [A min] much
Sorry those days when the [C] world went our way
Are so [G] hard to return to [A min] an'touch
Maybe our future looks [G] brighter, maybe our ship will come [A min] in
Maybe these years an'these [C] muletrain careers
Will be [G] things we wont think about [A min] then
But
I'm in such a [F] hurry now
It [C] starts to worry [G] me
Stop an' smell the roses?
[A min] baby I can't hardly see
[F] no, I aint forgotten just how good it all can be, but
[G] I've got so much [A min] responsibility
[F] competition's heavy on a hard line wreckin'crew
[A min] the good ones never leave an'still
There's always some one new
[F] pressure comes down hard up on a top notch rivet team
[G] we don't get time to pace ourselves,
We don't stand around and [A min] dream
Poor ole surrender [G] Mimosa, fin'ly burnt out by the [A min] heat
I feel pretty burnt [C] out myself
When I [G] make that ole turn down [A min] our street
Summertime's long been my [G] fav'rite, now it's ole autumn [A min] I love
Summertime fun on some [C] beach in the sun
Is not [G] somethin' I'm seein' much [A min] of
I'm in such a [F] hurry now
It [C] starts to worry [G] me
Stop an' smell the roses?
[A min] baby I can't hardly see
[F] no, I aint forgotten just how good it all can be, but
[G] I've got so much [A min] responsibility

Hints:
Forefinger and small finger 'work' on 5th string throughout the song;
