Ain't Nobody Keeping Score
©Jeffrey C. Ashbaker 9-10-2017

It's like a wave moving through the ocean
Changing as it changes me
It's like a heart, looking for emotion
A miner in a minor key

It's just a nerd wearing his black tee shirt
Thumping on a major "E"
Yeah, he's doing what can do
A pentatonic Do Re Mi

--- Chorus ---
Ah troubadour, Play one more
In four-four, por favor
Ain't nobody keeping score
-Instrumental Solo Verse-

-Repeat Chorus-

I just recalled, I'm here to tell a story
A ballad of a prodigy
His momma never called him late for dinner
Now she just calls him "Big D"

He traded in his ball glove for a guitar
Back in 1983
If he sees an Angel in his outfield
It's only on his color TV

-Repeat Chorus-
