I don't know if its an option but If you could make the difference between the thread color of New thread's vs Threads with no new topics more definate it would be easier for us "old folks" hehe.


Am I making sense? the Icon that is grey vs darker grey. If you could have it change color instead of shade it would be great.

This is how I play it.

A I'm not one to Bm7 look behind, ID know that D/E times must A change
But A over there in Bm7 Barrytown they D do things D/E pretty A strange

And F#m7 though you're not my C#m enemy
I D like things C#m like they Bm7 used to E be
And A though you'd like some Bm7 company
I'm D standing C#m by myBm7 self
Go D play with C#m someone Bm7 else

I can Bm7/F# see by A/E what you D carry C#m that you Bm7 come from
E Barry A town

Don't believe I'm taken in by stories I have heard
I just read the daily news and swear by every word

And don't think that I'm out of line
For speaking out for what is mine
I'd like to see you do just fine
But look at what you wear
And the way you cut your hair

I can see by what you carry that you come from Barrytown



F In the be Am7 ginning we recall that the BbMaj7 world was hurled
F  Barrytown Am7 people got to be from a BbMaj7 nother world A

Lift me or I'll be just like the others you will meet
They won't act as kindly if they see you on the street

And don't you scream or make a shout
There's nothing you can do about
It was there when you came out
It's a special lack of grace
I can see it in your face

I can see by what you carry that you come from Barrytown


Hope this works for you. I play guitar mostly so you might need to mess with the cords a little bit. Oh...and the Steely Dan version is what I play. The BFF version really...ahem...isn't that great. I was looking foward to it for a long time. I wasn't impressed.  :-/ I think they could have done a much better job if they were getting along at the time. Meh...great song just the same. :)

Ohhhhh...I love bagpipes. They have a highlands fest every year about an hour away from me. I always go! Drink Guiness, eat meat pies, and shortbread. Cheer on the Caber Toss and listen to bag pipes all day long...

ahhh...can't wait for summer.

Hey, everyone knows that you have to drink to have fun. I mean what is life without drinking? Pfft...I'll tell ya: It's a sucky ass life. It's the suckiest suck that ever sucked a suck. That's no puffy gumball either! That's straight up snickerdoodle.

Hey I like that tune too!. I just don't want to hear it in my head 24/7.  Am I the only one who has a problem with this?

Ok Try this...

The sad thing is that as soon as you said the name of the song it popped into my head and now it won't go away.

Argh! Stop the maddness!  ;D
