LyricsEverytime PlayedSong History

Let's Get Down To Business
(Vic Chesnutt)
Music transcribed by: Pete Millett
Scott Holcomb
Single notes starting low E/or 6th string:
              E / F# / G# / A# / B->
              E / D# / C# / A  / B (2x)
Intro..B// E// B// E// B// E// -> (barre @ 7th fret)

Chorus:
                  E         B
Let's get down to business, shall we?
     E                         F#      B
It's time we stop playing stop playing games,
                  E         B
Let's get down to business, shall we?
      E         B    G#m     F#
Let's quit with this lame pretense
    E
And tackle this what shackles us
                         B     E  B
All of this pressing business.

Verse 1:
                 F#               E                      B
Well, why didn't you tell me that things had gotten this bad
                F#
I was off in my own little world
    E
And I couldn't see through your taichi
                    F#
That I was being so sad


Jam over chorus chords

Verse 2:
Well, why didn't you tell me that things were falling apart
I was off in my own little world
And didn't discern
Your slow burn
Amidst all these fluttering hearts

(Chorus)
