TITLE: A Little Bit of Everything
Lyrics and Chords

[Capo 3]

With his back against the San Francisco traffic
On the bridge's side that faces towards the jail
Setting out to join a demographic
He hoists his first leg up over the rail

/ D G D - / A - D - / Bm F#m G - / D G D - /

A phone call's made, police cars show up quickly
The sergeant slams his passenger door
He says, Hey son, why don't you talk through this with me
Just tell me what you're doing it for

   Oh, it's a little bit of everything
   It's the mountains, it's the fog
   It's the news at six o'clock
   It's the death of my first dog
   It's the angels up above me
   It's the song that they don't sing
   It's a little bit of everything

   / Bm D / Bm F#m / Bm D / A - / D G / D Bm / G A7 D - /

There's an older man who stands in a buffet line
He is smiling and he's holding out his plate
And the further he looks back into his timeline
That hard road always led him to today

Making up for when his bright future had left him
And making up for the fact his only son is gone
And letting everything out once his server asks him
Have you figured out yet what it is you want

   I want a little bit of everything
   The biscuits and the beans
   Whatever helps me to forget about
   The things that brought me to my knees
   So pile on those mashed potatoes
   And an extra chicken wing
   I'm having a little bit of everything

Somewhere a pretty girl is writing invitations
To a wedding she has scheduled for the fall
Her man says, Baby, can I make an observation?
You don't seem to be having any fun at all

She said, You just worry about your groomsmen and your shirt size
And rest assured that this is making me feel good
I think that love is so much easier than you realize
If you can give yourself to someone then you should

   'Cause its a little bit of everything
   The way you choke, the way you ache
   It is getting up before you
   So I can watch you as you wake
   So on that day in late September
   It's not some stupid little ring
   I'm giving a little bit of everything

   Oh, it's a little bit of everything
   It's the matador and the bull
   It's the suggested daily dosage
   It is the red moon when it's full

   / Bm D / Bm F#m / Bm D / A - /

   All these psychics and these doctors
   They're all right and they're all wrong
   It's like trying to make out every word
   When they should simply hum along
   It's not some message written in the dark
   Or some truth that no one's sees
   It's a little bit of everything

   / D G / D Bm / D G / D Bm / D G / D Bm / G A7 D - /
