Fur Jacket On A Hot Night by Cathal Coughlan

From Cathal Coughlan’s 2006 Foburg album. Written by Cathal Coughlan. No capo.

High Llamas - Snowbug


Note: This is basically a spoken word “song.” I suppose you could go with an Abm6 over the whole lot, if you had to pluck at something. Good luck.

He is addressed by a manager
He is told of his debt
He is told that it is too great for him to pay
He is delivered to the man in the fur jacket
He comes to know him as Cousin Gregory
He is driven around the city
He is made to transfer all of his assets to his new owner
He is carried far away and put to work
He hears news of the city sometimes
He hears that progress has stalled
He hears that people are leaving
Progress has stalled
Progress has stalled
Triumph has repented of itself
