song: we both know

Every once in a while I'll just record a song while I'm writing it. It comes out raw, with a few mistakes, and a few formative moments. This is one of those songs.

Song: nothing but trouble







Nothing But Trouble (Doug Smith)

D7                       C7                      D7               C7               D7   C7   D7  C7
She’s nothing but trouble and it’s time you knew
Broken hearts, bad credit a one woman wrecking crew
G                                             A                                           D7    C7   D7  C7
She’s nothing but trouble — and that’s no good for you


D7                       C7                      D7               C7               D7   C7   D7  C7
Trick you into thinking that she loves you best  (oh no, that isn’t true)
But she’ll have you drinking once you fail her test (oh yeah, she’ll make a mess of you)
G                                             A                                           D7    C7   D7  C7 
Trouble, hurt and worry more than all the rest

          
            E7                                               D#7                      D7
Trouble is her middle name and how she likes to roll (oh yeah, she’ll roll right over you)
She’ll twist up your loving game and take away your soul (oh yeah, she’ll roll right over you)

D7                       C7                      D7               C7               D7   C7   D7  C7 
She’s nothing but trouble, trouble all the way (oh yeah she will ruin your day)
Getting caught up in your heart — she never meant to stay (use you up and throw you away)
G                                             A                                           D7    C7   D7  C7 
She’s nothing but trouble — trouble everyday

            E7                                               D#7                      D7
Trouble is her middle name and how she likes to roll (oh yeah, she’ll roll right over you)
She’ll twist up your loving game and take away your ever loving soul (oh yeah, she’ll roll right over you)
Better run...

welcome to my studio...

This is where I gather my artistic efforts in one place. Over the years I've enjoyed deep involvement in music, poetry, collage, and theater. I've also enjoyed related areas such as film, painting, dance, and improv.

Here are some links to find my work, thoughts, ideas, and ramblings:
