Dream – 2019-10-07

  • Build large wooden boat, square rig
  • Launch and outfit
  • Sail out on maiden voyage and run into storm
  • Feel like we are taking on water, turn towards a harbor, straight downwind. Sails and mast groan.
  • Go below and look while dad stays at helm
  • See water streaming in from some fitting up at the bow
  • Follow water “river” aft and see that it’s almost up to the first floorboards
  • Run back up as fast as I can
  • We are now in a harbor
  • Boat is visibly low in water
  • Hit bottom at one point but are able to get through. Muddy.
  • Tie up to dock
  • It’s some sort of summer spot that is closed now. Rides, stores, etc.

I’ve Got No Home

Chords / Melody
probably G to C to D... (138 bpm)
With a "D walkdown", 

end of chorus holds on a walkdown (to C?), and then
changes (to d) and holds again (...but I've got no home)

upbeat (which is strange because it's a sad-ish song)

Drums / beat
Main (Repeat 3 times):
1       2       3       4       5       6       7       8
do      dat     do-do  dat      do      dat     do-do   dat

1       2       3       4       5       6       7       8
do-do  dat-dat  do-do   dat-dat do-do   dat-dat do-do   dat-dat

End (i got, plenty of friends)...er something like this,
hopefully it gets the idea across:

1       2       3       4       5       6       7       8
do-do   dat-dat Crash   rest    rest    rest    rest    rest

1       2       3       4       5       6       7       8
rest    rest    rest    rest    dat-dat do-do   dat-dat Crash   

Woke up this morning just starin' at the sky
Lyin' in my bed just a'wonderin' why
why can't I find what I seem to need
Why is my life so full of weeds.

Been lookin' for years, for piece of mind
A slice this earth that I can call mine
A few pepper plants, a couple peach trees
this world wasn't made for men like me

Yeah...I got plenty of friends...
But I've got no home.


Can't keep livin' with an empty heart
Rusty and broken, gonna fall apart
How much longer can I last this way
How much longer can I laugh it away

Watching my life come slowly undone
Time's one thing you can never outrun
For so long I thought I had a plan
The boy has grown, this child is a man

Yeah...I got plenty of friends...
But I've got no home.

(walk down)
[bridge - modulate]
I've had things I wanted to go for,
Most of those have been kicked out the back door,
It's been a blast, and I've had fun,
But I feel like I lost more than I won

I got plenty of friends...
But I've got no home.

saw a cool color in the sky that I’d never seen before. went from powder blue by the sunset to deep navy blue opposite. not a cloud in sight, just a single star (or planet I’m presuming). I wish i had my real camera…
