GOOD INTENTIONS 

  (Ab7)             (Db9)
It's a sunny day in sunny California
         (Ab7)                      (E9)          (Eb9)
But that old sun it's shining on me right here at home
                  (Ab7)
It's one of those days
                                         (Db9)
When those great ideas they just seem to fall out on you
                (Ab7)                         (E9)      (Eb9)
And they always fall the greatest when you're falling all alone
               Ab13
It makes for a good day for some serious reflection
Db9
And massive rationalization
                      Ab13
For contemplating the future of the future
         E9         Eb9
And the last of the past
              Ab7
And wondering if you could ever forgive me darling
        Db9
All the trouble that I put to you
               Ab7
And if I could forget all those questions
     E9      Eb9
That I never asked
                     Db9
And if I could forgive
                                 Ab13
The temporary weight gain due to excessive water retention
Db9                      Ab13
I could forgive the rest too
            Db9
It's just a fact of life
            Ab13      Db7
That no one cares to mention
Ab7        Db9
She wasn't good 
            E9         Eb9
But she had good intentions


VERSE 2
So the grass it grows
When the sun it shines
And face it glows
When the woman's mine
And you say I'm a fool-around
Honey that may be true
But I'd sooner fool around
Than be a fool for a fool
And if I could forgive
The unadulterated adulterating apprehension
I could forgive the rest too
It's just a fact of life
That no one cares to mention
She wasn't good
But she had good intentions


SOLO (see TAB below)


VERSE 3
So I'm twenty-six and rising
Still too young to live
But too low to go
I guess it's the process
Of learning to excess
All of those things
That you already know
And if I could forgive
The honey-I swear-it-didn't-mean-a-thing-to-me
Attempt at abstention
I could forgive the rest too
It's just a fact of life
That no one cares to mention
She wasn't good
But she had good intentions

She wasn't good
But she had good intentions




 Ab7      Ab13     Db9      E9       Eb9
