Two Sets of Joneses


This song is a beautifully done acoustic piece. It has a great 
message, and sounds great! I saw another version on the OLGA, but it 
seemed all screwed up to me! (Sorry, Schrist913!) If you have any further 
corrections, E-mail me at MrData9999@aol.com, or, is that one is dead, try
HomieG@juno.com. I take requests from almost any Christian group, and some 
non-Christian as well. I WRITE THESE THINGS BY EAR, not using a computer. 
It sounds great on a Gibson vintage-50s Model 703 (which I have!).

     This song can be played without a capo, but it is played with one 
on the 2nd fret in the music video on "Open All Nite", and with a capo
on 
the 3th fret in the original album.

        Wow! Did that look confusing? Here is a *simple* explination:
X  -  mute
/  -  strum, as in a chord
H  -  hammer
P  -  pull-off

        See? Oh, and if you have heard the song before, you'll know how 
the tempo goes. And the strumming part - well...that's not "exactly" how
it 
is in the song, but -- *you* try to figure that stuff out!! :)  It
sounds good my way, however. Experiment! The chords above are the chord-forms, 
which give the approprate notes.

        Writing tab is harder than I thought!! Okay, this is what you
do.
Start on Chorus1, and sing what's under it (This here's a song...). than
repeat to the begining of the Chourus1, but when you get to where it
says 
2nd time, skip the rest and go to Bridge1.

So now, go:

"(Chorus1)Just for discussion, through random selection, (Bridge2) We've
chosen two couples who haven't a clue."

"(Chorus1)Rothschild was lucky to marry so wealthy, (Take 2nd ending to 
Chorus1)Evelyn bought him a house on the beach (Bridge1)(Chorus1)Reuben
and 
Sue, they had nothin' but Jesus, and at (Bridge2) night they would pray
that 
he'd care for them each."

And one set of Joneses was standin' that day. (Bridge1)

"(Chorus1)Evelyns daddy was proud of young Rothschild, (2nd ending to
C1),
worked for late hours to be number one. (Bridge1)(Chorus1)Just newlyweds
and their marrage got rocky. He's (Bridge2) flyin to Dallas, she's
having
a son"

"(Chorus1)Reuben was holdin' a Gideon's Bible, (2nd ending to C1) He
screamed
'It's a boy!' So that everyone heard. (Bridge1)(Chorus1)And the guys at
the
factory took a collection, and (Bridge2)again God provided fo bills they 
incurred.(Bridge1)(Chorus)

Outro:

    F    /     C                     //
So what is the point of this story?
 F    /              C    //
What am I trying to say?
(Chorus1, take 2nd ending to chords ----
Is your life built on the 

Rock of Christ Jesus, or
    Am                                G
A sandy foundation you've managed to lay?
