G chordG D chordD C chordC G chordG
When I woke up this morning things were lookin' bad
C chordC G chordG D chordD G chordG
seems like total silence is the only friend I have
D chordD C chordC G chordG C chordC G chordG
a bowl of oatmeal tried to stare me down and won
D chordD C chordC G chordG C chordC G chordG
and it was twelve o'clock before I realized that I was havin' no fun


{chorus}
D chordD G chordG C chordC D chordD G chordG
but fortunately I have the key to escape reality
step up to C chordC G chordG
and you may see me tonight with an illegal smile
D chordD G chordG
it don't cost very much but it lasts a long while
(step up to) C chordC G chordG
won't you please tell the man I didn't kill anyone
D chordD C chordC G chordG
no I was just tryin' to have me some fun


G chordG D chordD C chordC G chordG
last time I checked my bankroll well it was gettin' thin
C chordC G chordG D chordD G chordG
sometimes it seems like the bottom is the only place I've been
D chordD C chordC G chordG C chordC G chordG
chased a rainbow down a one-way street dead end
D chordD C chordC G chordG C chordC G chordG
and all my friends turned out to be insurance salesmen


{repeat chorus}

G chordG D chordD C chordC G chordG
I sat down in my closet with all my overalls
C chordC G chordG D chordD G chordG
just tryin' to get away from all the years inside these walls
D chordD C chordC G chordG C chordC G chordG
dreamed the police heard everything I thought what then
D chordD C chordC G chordG C chordC G chordG
well I went to court and the judge's name was Hoffman


{repeat chorus}
