Let The Chips Fall

"To anyone who would consider interfering from outside: If you do, you will face consequences greater than any you have faced in history."

"There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Tellin' me I got to beware"

I guess I just needed to get this off my chest, as they say.  ;)

Let The Chips Fall

If we cross that line
You have promised consequences
It's a dangerous time
In the world today
All we're tryin' to do
Is mend a few fences
And all your cryin'
Doesn't make much sense
You've done your worst
Now we've had it with your ways

'Cause all your lyin'
And foolish pretenses
And sabre rattlin'
Makes you sound crazed
While people are dying
Hungry and defenseless
All of your threats just sound senseless
You fired first
So you get to pay

And what are we going to do about that

We'll let the chips fall

You can stick your threats
Where the sun don't shine
I know you've got yours
But I've got mine


You sure talk tough
For someone who is losin'
Well we've had enough
Of your evil ways
I for one think
You're cruisin' for a bruisin'
So push your little buttons
And do what you've been doin'
But I think it's time
We be Putin you in your place

Then we'll let the chips fall

I’ve been around @Leonard Scaper
But the connection is bad. So I I had to quit and try again tomorrow..
At the interrupted versions it’s sounding great.
Including my fav 66 (or at least one of my favourites).
When the connection is stable again I’ll be back, I promise.

Kind regards, Gus

"Putin you in your place"  is a cool line @Leonard Scaper . A song is one of those things inside you that has to get out - - or you pop. Glad you didn't pop.

Holaa @Leonard Scaper

We are all affected by what is happening, without realizing it, we who thought we were the kings of mambo have discovered that we are only a moment under the pandemic and now with Putin.... It is curious to realize that most countries are being governed by thugs... And that people vote for them... It will be because they like it...
I like your song and your lyrics, such an accurate description...

Stay well

I did not know that to live I had to die so many times

@LePlongeur ....thanks for giving this one a spin, Gus.

@Vince .....yeah, that lyric showed up just before I tracked the vocals.  8) You're right, btw.......sometimes a song just has to be released into the world just to relieve (or maybe to create) tension.

@Mora Amaro La Loba .....thank you for always listening, Mora....and my best to your co-star.

If this one isn’t one of your masterpieces, I don’t know what is.
Your a little less than Spartan backing gives the lyrics all the more urgency, yet keeping up your authentic handwriting.
If only i could write 13 of these……

Lang may you run.
Kind regards, Gus

@Leonard Scaper  Strong song - liking the line "I for one think
You're cruisin' for a bruisin'"
and the peculiar (Spartan, as @LePlongeur puts it ) phrasing that defines your style. The absence of drums or any ongoing beat suits it well.

@LePlongeur ....I am very pleased, Gus, that this one resonates that strongly with you

@oorlab ....I was not so sure about that line. I worried that it sounded too contrived. But...that was what I was thinking so.......  8)

On a side note.......

I have just been informed by the gentleman that bought the property that I have been renting for twelve years that he wants his son to move in here. So....tomorrow I will start to dismantle my studio as I let the river of life take me downstream one more time.

It may be a few months before I post another tune.....or even longer, all thing considered. I will still be listening. :)

@Leonard Scaper  . . . well, perhaps this a new millennium protest song . . . really enjoyed it ! Sentiments echoed here. 8 billion people, sad how it only takes one nutball to mess things up. Nice how you tied it into a 1960's protest song with that fade ending. A little more edge to the guitars than I've heard from you, but totally suits this tune.

"as I let the river of life take me downstream one more time" . . . I think you've just inspired another song

Hope the move goes well, looking forward to more creations from that next place . . .
Regards, popitup

I believe you have expressed the response to this Madman held by most of the world… surely there is some relief in getting this off your chest… I know I feel it!

Lots of great lines in the lyrics and none of them sound contrived… they sound spontaneous and genuine.  The connection to the atmosphere in the 60s is one that hit me the day after the invasion…. An oddly familiar feeling…

When you sing “Let the Chips Fall” it is indeed an Anthem of Protest…. It’s time for such songs again. Thank you @Leonard Scaper  for sharing yours.  :praise:

@popitup ......I'm glad you got all the way through to that piece of 60's anti-war sentiment. Glad you enjoyed the listen.

@1roomstudio .......it really is disconcerting that this world has not quite evolved out of all this since the 60's. Wondering if it ever will. Thanks for listening to this one.
