FRENCHY BURRITO and the folk pistols

PLAY IT AGAIN SAM............written by: frenchy burrito/rodd willings

Walked in this old bar
Late one cold night
Heard Sam playin
On the guitar
And He Played an old
Song and he played
It all night long
Made me feel so good

Now play it again Sam
Don't let the music die
Play it again Sam
I'll keep the drinks rolling by
And maybe you can make a dollar
For the time that you spent
Maybe you can ease
The troulbe in my mind

Now this whole dog-on
World is spinning round
Way too fast
And sometimes I'm
A living in the past
And the papers are a
Dime for the news
You can find
And it seems your
Always on my mind

Now play it again Sam
Don't let the music it die
Play it again Sam
I'll keep the drinks rolling by
And maybe you can get a dollar
For the tie that you spent
Maybe you can ease
The trouble in my mind
