A A AWell, I usedA to drive a cab, you know CI heard a siren scream DPulled over to the corner CAnd fell into a dream A AThere were two men eating pennies CAnd three young girls who cried D"The West coast is falling, CI see rocks in the sky." A EThe preacher took his bible And he laid it on the stool He said: "with the Dcongegration running, Why should CI play the fool?"
AWell I Aused to be a woman, you know CI took you for a ride, DI let you fly my airplane CIt looked good for your Apride. A'cause you're the kind of man you know CWho likes what he says. DI wonder what's it's like To be so far Cover my Ahead. Well, the Elady made the wedding EAnd she brought along the ring. She got Ddown on her Cknees And said: C'let's get on with this thing'.
A7Well I A7used to be a folk singer CKeeping managers alive, DWhen you saw me on a corner And Ctold me I was jive. A7 So I A7unlocked your mind, you know CTo see what I could see. DIf you guarantee the postage, I'll Cmail you back the key. A9 Well I Ewoke up in the morning EWith an arrow through my nose There was an DIndian in the corner CTryin' on my clothes.
AEm7Well I Aused to be asleep you know CWith blankets on my bed. DI stayed there for a while 'til they discCovered I was dead.Esus4 AThe coroner was friendly CI liked him quite a lot.

DAlthough I knew I could not thought that I Cwas gonna scream.A That was on my Elast trip to Tulsa EJust before the snow. If you Dever need a ride there, Be sure Cto let me know.
AI was Achopping down a palm tree CWhen a friend dropped by to ask DIf I would feel less lonely If he helCped me swing the axe.A I said 'noA, it's not a case of being Clonely CWe've have here, I've been Dworking on this palm tree For Ceighty seven years.'A I said A'no, it's not a case of being Clonely CWe've have here, DI've been working on this palm tree eighty seven yearCs.' A7 He said "Ego get lost" EAnd walked towards his Cadillac. DI chopped down the Dsus4palm tree And Cit landed on his Cback.
