Searching with google I can find some lyrics of JA songs but no guitar chords. Would love the chords to Lather & Good Shepherd and anything else. Can anybody help?

Here is Lather, lifted from somewhere or other--I usually like to mark the chords our measure for measure--but these are so easy that I never bothered--basically, is is three beats per measure--four measures in each line--if only three are shown, play the last one for two measures--(Like this for the first line: Am/C/G/G)


LATHER
(play these chord positions with capo on the third fret)

[Am]Lather was [C]thirty years [G]old today,
They [Em]took away [D]all of his [C]toys.
His [Am]mother sent [C]newspaper [G]clippings to him,
About his [Em]old friends who'd [D]stopped being [C]boys.

There was [Em]Harwitz E. [D]Green, just [F]turned thirty-[D]three,
His [Am]leather chair [Em]waits at the [D]bank.
And [Em]Seargent Dow [D]Jones, twenty-[F]seven years [D]old,
[Am]Commanding his [Em]very own [D]tank.

But [C]Lather still [D]finds it a [Em]nice thing to do,
To [C]lie about [D]nude in the [Em]sand,
Drawing [C]pictures of [D]mountains that [Em]look like bumps,
And [D]thrashing the air with his [Am]hands. [A]

But [A]wait, oh Lather's [G]productive you know,
He [A]produces the [G]finest of [A]sound,
Putting drumsticks on either [G]side of his nose,
[A]Snorting the [G]best licks in [A]town .....Am G D
But [E]that's all over...

[Am]Lather was [C]thirty years [G]old today,
And [Em]Lather came [D]foam from his [C]tongue.
He [Am]looked at me [C]eyes wide and [G]plainly said,
Is it [Em]true that I'm [D]no longer [C]young?

And the [Em]children [D]call him [F]fam[D]ous,
What the [Am]old men [Em]call in[D]sane,
And [Em]some[D]times he's so [F]name[D]less,
That he [Am]hardly [Em]knows which [D]game to play...
Which [C]words to say...

And I [C]should have [D]told him, [Em]"No, you're not old."
And I [C]should have [D]let him go [Em]on...[D]smiling...baby[Am]wide.

Oh, for some reason, Lycos.com is a better engine to use for chords and lyrics--

I've just gone to the link above and read the lyric for the last verse of 3/5 mile in 10 seconds:

Do away with things that come on obscene
Like hot rods, pre-cleaned real fine nicotine
Sometimes the price is sixty-five dollars
Prices like that make a grown man holler
'Specially when it's sold by a kid who's only fifteen
Know I love you baby, yes I do


Anybody got a clue to what it's all about - I've always loved this song!

well, you left out my favorite lines..."take me to a circus tent, where I can easily pay my rent".
But, in answer to your question, I think Marty's talking about two different topics here. The first two lines refer to being bombarded with commercials that try to create a need that only the product can fulfill. The next four lines refer to making a drug deal with a high school kid.
