Subject: Lyr/Chords Add: BREAD AND GRAVY (Hoagy Carmichael)
Just to clear up any doubt or confusion, here's the Hoagy Carmichael song. It's a nice song in its own right.
Copied from http://www.iol.ie/~murphypj/FOLK/BRDGRAVY.TXT (with a few corrections made by me based on various sound samples).
BREAD AND GRAVY
(Hoagy Carmichael, 1935)
G B7 G CPeace and quiet, lots of peace and quiet.
Bread and gravy, lots of bread and gravy.
G B7 G C7
Beans and bacon, lots of beans and bacon.
E7 B7 G C
No more frettin' since I've been gettin'
G D7 G D7
Lots of bread and gravy all the time.
Friends and money, lots of friends and money.
No more ramblin', I'm through with scramblin'.
Keep up with the Joneses all the time.
G7 C E7Bread and gravy, lots of bread and gravy.
Got no reason to be swell,
And my clothes all fit me well,
G Bf D7 G G7
And I wear a nice ring.
I'm as free as I can be,
And my honey's lovin' me,
G Bf D7 G D7
So I just can't keep from singin':
Goodnight kisses, my love never misses.
No more blues now, no bad news now,
Just lots of bread and gravy all the time.
[Recorded by Ethel Waters and a few others.]
