Disclaimers. I wrote it, but it sounds familiar. Hmmm.

Can’t play this one or sing it to suit me. This is one of the times I feel like I need to improve to be mediocre. But right now, this is as good as I can do on the song.

4 string Bible box guitar tuned DGBD.

I Didn’t Treat You Right.

Saturday night and I’m all alone,
Got the stereo on, listening to the stones..

Chorus:
And I wonder, where you are tonight.
You’d still be here with me if ---
if I had treated you right.


You used to be my short and sweet,
But I treated you so bad, you said you had to leave.

You gave me a 2nd chance and you gave me a 3rd.
It took you leavin’ to make me learn…..

Instrumental and repeat verse One

I'm with Gus on this one. Sounds just right to me. As for sounding familiar, you must have been listening to a very find chap called Uncle John, because it sounds just like one of his songs.

Aw, you don't need to improve nothin', Cuz...sounds perfect to me.

4 string? First John thank you for the nice comment on my donation to the hospital and I hope to do it next year or sooner. Second I have witten song only to read them and find I used  a whole versus from other peoples songs. Booze ? could be. When your in a productive witting mode just run with it you can always change the accidental words that ain't yours. Sound like a U.J. song to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
