Sentimental Movie Newbor11
SENTIMENTAL MOVIE
Album:
Unreleased.

Written by:
West Arkeen, Duff McKagan and Del James.

Musicians:
West Arkeen on guitar, Duff on vocals, the rest unknown.



Live performances:
This song has never been played live.

Notes:
This song's connection to Guns N' Roses is not entirely clear and it might be more correct to consider it a West Arkeen song with contributions from GN'R members. It has appeared on various GN'R related bootlegs along with other West Arkeen demos featuring members of the band. It was also included in a West Arkeen promo tape that surfaced later.


Lyrics:

You better change your attitude
Cause you know you want it to
You bring me all your pride
But I know you hold it too
I can feed your bounty, yeah
If you feed my head as well
And I won't give you empty promises, yeah
When the quarter's in the wishing well
But this ain't no sentimental movie
Where dreams collect like dust
You talk to me with innocence in your eyes
So now, who can you trust?
You think you look so cool
Yes you do
You take me for your fool, yeah
Itching' for your... of the hug
Baby I want a new start, but don't you be true, yeah
I can see through your door
You put my head into these walls
You take my heart to the dockside, yeah
You put me in the car
And take me for another ride
But this ain't no sentimental movie
Where dreams collect like dust
You talk to me with innocence in your eyes
So now, who can you trust?
Trust
Trust
Put a path on to your veins
And antique and old whore's our new pain, yeah
The tears you cried
All the tears you cried tonight
Yeah
You put me down
But you can't get out of sight
And this ain't no sentimental movie
You push it on
You grab it on
But I don't see the TV?
This ain't no sentimental movie
Yeah, see the screen
You're startin' to scream
Abusin' confusin'
Your program's over?
This ain't no sentimental movie
Yeah, you look so cool
Don't take me for another one of your scenes?
This ain't no sentimental movie
This ain't no sentimental movie
The tears you cried
All the tears you cried tonight
Yeah
This ain't no sentimental movie
This ain't no sentimental movie
This ain't no sentimental movie
Yea

QUOTES REGARDING THE SONG

I didn't have anything to do with "Sentimental Movie". Axl and West Arkeen plus maybe Izzy recorded that one night when we were all hanging out at "Hell House". That's a house we all used to squat at. I can't remember if I put a solo on it or not. But, no, Snakepit will never play that song. I don't even remember how it went it was so long ago.

Slash remembers wrong, it is obviously Duff singing lead with possibly West in the background. I don't think Axl had anything to do with this.

According to ASCAP (which collects royalties for West Arkeen's estate), this was written by West Arkeen, Duff and Del James (West Arkeen's percentage is 75%):
