After seeing Joe's songs, I figured this group could use the chords and lyrics to a song I wrote at the very end of ConChord this year. It was inspired by a remark made by Robin Baylor about the "wonderful" food at the hotel restaurant: "We'd be better off at the 'Road Kill Cafe.' The service was so slow that this song was started after we ordered and 90% written by the end of dinner. The chorus changes ever so slightly each time it's sung; hence the repeated chords. Anyhow, here it is.... --Lynn P.S.--If I get the guts up, I may be performing it tonight at the Freight and Salvage in Berkeley.... ********************************************************************** Road Kill Cafe (c) 1992 Lynn Gold [Intro: D / G / D G D] G There is a place you can go D When you want to grab a bite to eat A You'll find it on the road G D In the middle of your fav'rite street G Look for the dotted line D B7 Next to the black-and-yellow sign A G D G D That shows a picture of this week's specialty meat! G Come on and have some dinner D At the ROAD KILL CAFE A Where you can munch on mice and sup on squirrel G D Or inhale a whiff of skunk souffle G You can have meat that is fresh D B7 Or have some maggot-laden flesh A Have it any way you want G D G D At the ROAD KILL CAFE! G You can get Real Turtle Soup D Or some muskrat broiled on mesquite A Bluejays and hummingbirds G D Make a tasty dish of shredded tweet G Have hot dog on a bun D B7 Or catch a stray cat on the run A G D G D You'll have a morsel that always lands on its feet! G Come on and have some dinner D At the ROAD KILL CAFE A Where they serve real mud pie and the coffee tastes different G D 'Cause you know that it was ground today G You can have meat that is fresh D B7 Or have some maggot-laden flesh A Have it any way you want G D G D At the ROAD KILL CAFE! A As you stop and go, have some escargot G D You can eat it at a snail's pace A For a tasty dish, try silverfish G D Let 'em slither down without a trace B7 If you want a treat that has no feet Em Try Banana Slug Cream Pie E For an appetizing smell, Armadillo-on-the-Half-Shell G (no chord) Broiled with garlic butter on the side G You can have crushed rattlesnake D Or some venison from cross-eyed deer A Enjoy some rabbit food G D When a bunny thinks the coast is clear G No need to pass it by D B7 When dinner looks you in the eye A G D G D And if that bothers you, then hit it from the rear! G Come on and have some dinner D At the ROAD KILL CAFE A Where you can masticate moose and drink road-apple juice G D As you're wolfing down a wolf at bay G You can have meat that is fresh D B7 Or have some maggot-laden flesh A Have it any way you want G D G D At the ROAD KILL CAFE! G Come on and have some dinner D At the ROAD KILL CAFE A And have a spoon of racoon or a smidgin of pigeon G D Or opossum in a smooth pate G Whether it's wild or it's tame D B7 If it's on the highway it's fair game A Have it any way you want G D G D At the ROAD KILL CAFE! G Whether it's wild or it's tame D B7 If it's on the highway it's fair game A Have it any way you want G D G D At the ROAD KILL CAFE!
