Monday often gets a bad rap in songs, perhaps deservingly so. Nobody wants to start a new work week on a Monday (which hasn't been a problem for me now going on nine months). Some people are downright cranky about it.
But I just got around to reading my April copy of Acoustic Guitar, and there's hope -- in the form of the chords, words and picking pattern to Jimmy Buffett's "Come Monday.'' Even this song has a melancholy ring to it, but it's certainly more uplifting than the Mama & Papas' "Monday, Monday.''
Come Monday it'll be alright
Come Monday I'll be holding you tight
I spent four lonely days in a brown LA haze
And I just want you back by my side
I just wish I had that night in Montana to help me get through this one...
