Such A Pretty Thing

Story Behind The Song

"Same old 12 bar Blues" as the late great George Harrison once sang. I did manage to escape a 3 cord arrangement, and found a friend in D minor and co. That espescially works well with Michael's outstanding piano solo.

Such a pretty thing we've got going on here, be a doggone shame to see it all disappear...these blues are deep down in my bones and sometimes girl, they ain't no fun, when your loves locked away, feels just like a rainy day...seems like nothin' I can do, can't find a single word to say darling!, to a heartache we'll be prone if we leave this love alone, got your love locked away...I know I never could say it, but I swear my love is true...the whole world's split in two, darling (you) got me singin' the blues...we've got precious little time, the sky is startin' to snow, gotta head way back down south, before that 'ole volcano blows darling! baby hang on to it, ain't no need to fuss and fight, got your love locked away, oh the blues are here to stay...I'm burnin' rubber in fourth gear, past the red line in my mind darling! way down deep inside, I try to run but cannot hide when your love's locked away...(piano solo)...such a pretty thing we've got going on here...such a cryin' shame to see it all disappear! don't deny it, I can see it in your eyes, got your love locked away...

The blend is wonderful..... I starting to move my feet. I feel the groove....
