On the Greener Side

(A) Send me a dozen long stemmed roses
I’ll tell you what I will do
I’ll bend them into a crown of thorns
Then (E7) send them right back (A) to you

Your (A)love (E7) love (A)love (E7)
Don’t(A) keep me (E7) sat (A) isfied (E7)
(A) Though I’ve never (E7) been there
I (A) know it’s always (E7) greener
On the greener (A) side

Say you want to give me a run for my money
Here’s something I’m gonna admit
It may sound funny, but Romeo honey
I don’t want none of your…

My love is like a wishing well
Your love is like a clear blue sky
Sometimes it takes a thunder storm
To fill me when I’m dry

There was no place whatsoever for a woman in the life and the world that Jack Kerouac described. And women were not going to be invited into it. So it’s sort of like crashing the party. I know I’m here unwelcome and I’m going to rewrite this history so I can be a part of it.
