G7#9   353455
C9     x32333
D9     x54555
A7#9   575677

12 bar blues in G per each verse
( G  C  G  G  C  C  G  G   D  C  G  D )

verse 1:
I turned on the radio just the other day
I let out a holler, I let out a hey
Something's wrong here, but I've paid my dues
My favorite radio station stopped playing the blues

Now I can't eat
I can't sleep
Nothing to hum to
Can't tap my feet . . .

verse 2:
No more Jimmy Vaughan, Clapton's off too
No more Muddy Waters, Lord what can I do?
I'd send in a letter, but I can't complain
I feel so cloudy it looks like rain

I can't smile
Can't keep the beat
Nothing to hum to
can't tap my feet. . .

chorus:
G7#9
No one to help me cry
C9
No one to sympathize
A7#9
My radio station and I
D9
We had good times

verse 3:
I've been crying so I lost my voice
I lost my man to a little girl from Detroit
My CD player don't work anymore
Now I'm even worse off than I was before

Now I can't eat
I can't sleep
Nothing to hum to
Can't tap my feet . . .

chorus:
No one to help me cry
No one to sympathize
My radio station and I
We had good times

instrumental:
(play 12 bars ending with D9 below)

         D9
I can't smile
             C9
You wouldn't too
         G7#9           D9
If your favorite radio station
              C9  C#9   G7#9
Stopped play-ing  the  blues
