Subject: Lyr Add: PLAY ONE MORE (Ian Tyson)
Been playing and singing this one since I was a kid and didn't know what the hell it was about. My Dad taught it to me. Great song, that's all.


Play One More
Ian Tyson c.1966

Play one more
And then I'm leavin', boys
Pick one more
Let those guitars ring
I can't tarry
Here too long, for I do believe
She been high-strung
Like a swallow on the wing

She may be go-one

Well, this smoky laughin' room does seem to ease my mind
Not to mention a few too many that I've had
But I'll pack my guitar up, for I do believe
she been high-strung and lately feelin' bad

She may be go-one

Well we ain't been gettin' along for bout a month or more
Yes, I might be better off if she'd just go
But to get home with the dawn and find an empty room
Could I stand the pain? I really don't think so

So play one more
And then I'm leavin', boys
Yes, pick one more
Let those guitars ring
I can't tarry
Here too long, for I do believe
She been high-strung
Like a swallow on the wing

She may be go-one

Go-one

Ooooo Ooooo.
