Well I woke up this morning, the place was such a wreck

I couldn't reach the bathroom, thought I'd better clear the deck

I tried to call the lawyer and asked him what to do

He referred me to his doctor, who referred me back to you

And when you checked the manual you kept in side the case

It said 'put it in a cool dry place'

I drove around the city, looking for a room

That was high above the water, where my things could be in tune

There was no one to help me, nobody even cared

I had to go through hell to get those things up there

I paid my first subscription, then I joined the idle race

and they said 'store it in a cool dry place'

I got guitar, basses, amplifiers and drums

Accordions and mandolins and things that sometimes hum

Cymbals and harmonicas, capos by the score

And lots of things in boxes laying all around the floor

Some places they get mildew and others get too hot

Some places are so damp that everything you got just rots

All kinds of condensation, a direct result of rains

There's not much compensation when everything's been stained

Some have sentimental value that cannot be erased

Go store it in a cool dry place


Sorry, but I don't have the solo, just play the chords used in the verse)

We got solids and acoustics and some from plywood board

And some are trimmed in leather and some are made with gourds

There's organs and trombones, and reverbs we can use

Lots of dx-7s and old athletic shoes

I bought a great big building that took up one whole block

I made an inventory of all the things in stock

The place was getting longer I was up all night

I used up all my pencils, but I went on despite

The blurring of my vision, the sweat upon my face

I've got to put this stuff away, I mustn't leave a trace

The landlord's breathing down my neck, he says it's a disgrace

So I said 'put it in a cool, dry, place.'

That's basically it for the song. Have fun with it. From, Ryan D. Kemp
