Story

The protagonist in "Might Could" teeters on the precipice of opportunity. I've been fooling around for decades with this chord progression. It was time to make a commitment to it and give our leading character a little push. It's a bit of a push for me, too, because it's my first foray into playing swing.

Might Could

© February 2011 Dave Nealon

 

She slinked down the stairs with a sultry grace

Shake of her shoulders, Mona Lisa face

Invaded the sanctum of my private space

 

She subtly mentioned, this ingénue

While she’s out shopping there’s chores I might should do

And as the tension grew I said what I always do

 

I might could

I probably should

I wonder what would happen if I ever would

 

She slumped down the stairs, lip in a pout

You might oughta know what would help me out

Sometimes I believe you don’t hear what I’m talking about

 

I might could

I probably should

I wonder what would happen if I ever would

 

Now I learned my lesson good

Go ahead and do all that you might should

Don’t live to regret the things you mighta could

 

I might could

I probably should

I wonder what would happen if I ever would
