about

"Chippin Away" sends the album storming out of the gate playing around with an up-tempo ska rhythm. The horn section adds the right amount of punch to get the listener immediately engaged.

lyrics

Verse 4x [ B / A / B / F# ]
When I woke up and looked around, To see what happened to me
All my energy shaken aside, I was sure glad I'm still alive
Dream in the night everlasting until, We see the results of the bill
Willfully know that the echoes we show, won't lead from this treacherous road

[B / B / A / A] [F# / C# / F# / C#]

Chorus 4x [C# - A / B / F# - C# / E ]
And We're Chippin' Away, Just a piece at a time
Little by little, change becoming visible
Chippin' Away, Just a piece at a time
Little by little, change becoming visible

Verse 4x [ B / A / B / F# ]
As I woke up and moved around, To see what happened to be
all our energy pushing aside, what we thought would be right
Taking a chance with a lengthening race, it surely will show on our face
Helping to live with whatever we give, far away from our own prior place

[B / B / A / A / B / B / A / A] [F# / C# / F# / C#]

Chorus 4x [C# - A / B / F# - C# / E ]
And we're Chippin' Away, Just a piece at a time
Little by little, change becoming visible
Chippin' Away, Just a piece at a time
Little by little, change becoming visible

Bridge 4x [F# / C#]
As our thoughts get older becoming bolder, then finding from place to place
Some of those tried but failed to erase, with an effort to remain where we gave
The words that taught them about the clues, when reordered were seldom used
Still their words are teaching us the truth, Once discovered is still of use, But We're

Chorus 4x [C# - A / B / F# - C# / E ]
Chippin' Away, Just a piece at a time
Little by little, change becoming visible
Chippin' Away, Just a piece at a time
Little by little, change becoming visible

[F# / C#] Bridge Instrumental

Chorus with Vocals 4x [C# - A / B / F# - C# / E ]

Abe's Logic is my solo project. There's a variety of styles, kind of a ska funk garage rock with mixtures of voice, guitars, drums, bass, sax, B3, rhodes, piano...and the occasional ukulele. I've made all of this in my studio (meaning that I have a computer ;-) ... more
