Play the song…
…this is sort of a new song. To be precise, the lyrics are entirely new but the guitar part goes way back. It used to be a song about a dead cat and was on my first LP. That record being deleted from the catalogue I figured I could take it, lose the cat, and turn it into something more edifying. In the good ol’ days the song was called “Bones” – now it’s called, well, “The Favour”. I’ve also had to take the key down a step or two because my voice has got deeper. Not more resonant or more characterful – just deeper!
Loosely, the song’s about a suspected infidelity.

For guitar players, here’s a link to the notation / tab of the guitar part: The Favour (411)
Please note that I use a capo (on the first fret, I think) when I recorded this.
Your evening classes
Leave you out of breath
All that yoga
And Shakespeare’s MacBeth
You’ve got an outside interest
I’m really pleased for you
We talk more
Than we used to do
There is one favour
Before we turn out the light
