INTRO: Asus2      

A                               C    
Well, I used to drive a cab, you know       
C                                           
I heard a siren scream                      
D                                           
Pulled over to the corner                   
C                  Asus2              
And I fell into a dream

A                                 
There were two men eating pennies           
C                                           
And three young girls who cried             
D                                           
The West coast is falling,                  
C                         Asus2             
I see rocks in the sky.

E7                                          
The preacher took his bible                 
And laid it on the stool.                   
D                                  
He said: with the congregation running,     
C                 Asus2 A Asus2 A
Why should I play the fool?

Well, I used to be a woman, you know        
C                                           
I took you for a ride,                      
D                                           
I let you fly my airplane                   
C                                A          
It looked good for your pride.              

'Cause you're the kind of man you know             
C                                                  
Who likes what he says.                            
D                                                  
I wonder what's it's like                          
C       A                             
To be so far over my head.

E7                                        
Well, the lady made the wedding                    
And she brought along the ring.                    
D                 C                            
She got down on her knees                          
C                                Asus2 A7
And said: Let's get on with this thing.

Well, I used to be a folk singer                   
C                                                  
Keeping managers alive,                            
D                                                  
When you saw me on a corner                        
C                       A7                         
And told me I was jive.

So I unlocked your mind, you know                  
C                                                  
To see what I could see.                           
D                                                  
If you guarantee the postage,                      
C                        A7                   
I'll mail you back the key.                        
E7                                  
Well I woke up in the morning              
With an arrow through my nose              
D             Dsus4           
There was an Indian in the corner          
C                      Asus2  Em  Asus2  Em
Tryin' on my clothes.

A                                  
Well, I used to be asleep you know         
C                                          
With blankets on my bed.                   
D                                          
I stayed there for a while                 
C                       Asus2  A 
'Til they discovered I was dead.

The coroner was friendly                   
C                                          
And I liked him quite a lot.               
D                                          
If I hadn't 've been a woman               
C                       Asus2  
I guess I'd never have been caught.        
E7                                     
They gave me back my house and car         
Asus2  A       
And nothing more was said.                 

Well, I was driving down the freeway        
C                                   
When my car ran out of gas.                 
D                                           
Pulled over to the station                  
C                   A                 
But I was afraid to ask.

The servicemen were yellow                  
C                                   
And the gasoline was green.                 
D                                           
Although I knew I couldn't                  
C           A                
I thought that I was gonna scream.

E7                           
That was on my last trip to Tulsa           
Just before the snow.                       
D           Dsus4                    
If you ever need a ride there,              
C                 Asus2  Em x4  Asus2
Be sure to let me know.

A                                     
I was chopping down a palm tree             
C                                           
When a friend dropped by to ask             
D                                           
If I would feel less lonely                 
C                         Asus2       
If he helped me swing the axe.              
A                            C

I said: No, it's not a case of being lonely                         
We have here,                                                       
D                                                         
I've been working on this palm tree

For eighty seven years

C                              
I said: No, it's not a case of being lonely                         
We have here,                                                       
D                                                                   
I've been working on this palm tree                                 
C     A7                                           
For eighty seven years

E7                                                         
He said: Go get lost!                                               
And walked towards his Cadillac.                                    
D                  Dsus4                                            
I chopped down the palm tree                                        
C                                                                   
And it landed on his back.
