From the recording Might Could

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.

Lyrics

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
