Objects In Space

I’ve written a rather odd little F/OSS themed parody of Joss Whedon’s “Ballad of Serenity” (the theme song to Firefly). The guitar part was originally worked out by FIVEBYFIVE from the acoustic version played by Joss on the DVD extras. If I’m feeling particularly sadistic I might even record a version of it, all I can promise is that it’d be ever so slightly better than the Free Software Song ;).

A              G
Take my drive, take my files.
D               A          Em
Take me where I can't compile.
C             G
I don't care, I'm still free,
D                  A           Em
You can't take the source from me.

A           G
Take me out to dev null,
D                A       Em
tell 'em Windows was too dull.
C                  G
Burn the files and boil VC,
D                  A           Em
You can't take the source from me.

G              D               C

A                G
There's no place I can be
D                  A    Em
since I found Open Sourcery.
C                  G      D    A
But you can't take the source from me

G              D               C A

  2. Don’t worry, one of my house mates seems to be planning to take care of that with a bow ;).
