Pink Ribbon
© 2007 Jim Gach & Garrick Alden


It's been two years since you went away
I hit the road, no reason to stay
Like tumbleweed blowin' over the hill
I wander about aimlessly still

My friends say your memory will fade
They're trying to help but it feels clichéd
Cause you know I wear that pink ribbon still
And I swear to you I'll wear it until...

Chorus
Till we meet again at the gates of heaven
Till I see you your smile I’m gonna wear this pink ribbon
I'll wear this pink ribbon through all of my years
Until as we kiss the angels cheer

When the lab confirmed the diagnosis
I felt a cold chill I couldn't express
Choked back tears kissed yours away
We sat silently with everything to say.

Repeat Chorus

You held onto life as long as you could
Awed me with the pain that you withstood
A moment froze as my world stood still
One last breath then your soul said farewell.

Repeat Chorus X2

Gettin' Old Ain't for Sissies
Jim Gach - Copyright 2006


Turned 50 just the other day
Arthritis in my vertebrae
Saw the doc for my physical
Expecting it to be typical

Said he'd need to check my prostate
Lubed a finger and began to violate
A part of me that never sees the sun
Getting’ old ain’t gonna to be fun

Chorus: Oh my God I'm in my fifties
Getting old ain't for sissies
The years ahead are lookin' rough
Cause Medicare ain't gonna pay enough

Thank God my PSAs normal
But my wife is hormonal
The hair is thin on the top of my head
Cause it grows in my ears instead.

My hemorrhoids are flaring up
Colonoscopy and peeing in a cup
Endoscopy and hypertension
All of this while on a pension.

Chorus

Get myself together & go to the store
Then I forget what I went there for.
The foods I like give me heartburn
And everything is gettin' harder to learn.

Teeth replaced out one by one
Guess that's better then eating with my gums
And I won't be in no more races
Cause both my knees need braces.

Chorus X2 Second time use verse chords

Rules of the Game
© 2006 Jim Gach


I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE RULES OF THE GAME.
YOU SAY YOU LOVE ME & HOPE I NEVER CHANGE,
THEN GIVE ME A LIST OF THINGS TO DO
TO HELP ME SELF-IMPROVE
I DON'T GET THE RULES OF THE GAME.

(CHORUS)
I'M NOT A MAN MADE OF WIRE,
YOU CAN'T BEND BE TO YOUR DESIRE.
I'M NOT A MAN MADE OF CLAY
YOU CAN'T MOULD ME JUST ANYWAY.
CAN'T YOU LOVE ME THE WAY I AM
LIKE YOU DID WHEN WE FIRST BEGAN.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE RULES OF THE GAME.
LOVING YOU IS DRIVING ME INSANE.
YOU SAY YOU LOVE ME THE WAY I AM,
THEN YOU TRY TO CHANGE ME TO YOUR IDEAL MAN.
I DON'T GET THE RULES OF THIS GAME.

(CHORUS)

(BRIDGE)
I'M NOT WILLING TO CHANGE WHO I AM
JUST TO BE YOUR RENAISSANCE MAN.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE RULES OF THE GAME.
DON'T THINK I'M LOOKING TO COMPLAIN,
CAN'T YOU UNDERSTAND MY PLIGHT?
WHATEVER I CHANGE IT STILL AIN'T RIGHT.
I DON'T GET THE RULES OF THE GAME.

(CHORUS)

(OUTRO)
I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE RULES OF THE GAME.
LOVING YOU IS DRIVING ME INSANE.
