THE OLD LAUGHING LADY
D Em/D Dmaj7 Em/D
Don't call pretty Peggy, she can't hear you no more.
D Em/D Dmaj7
Don't leave no message 'round her back door.
G/D D Em/D
They say the "Old Laughing Lady" been here before.
Dmaj7 Dm7 G
She don't keep time, she don't count score.
D Gm7 Am7 D
You can't have a cupboard if there ain't no wall.
You got to move, There's no time left to stall.
They say the "Old Laughing Lady" dropped by to call.
When she leaves, she leaves nothing at all.
Dmaj7 Dm7 Dmaj7 Dm7 G/D Dmaj7 Dm7 Dmaj7 Dm7 G/D D
See the drunkyard of the village falling on the street.
Can't tell his ankles from the rest of his feet.
He loves his old laughing lady 'cause her taste is so sweet.
But the laughing lady's lovin', ain't the kind he can keep.
D (D/Bb) D/C D
There's a fever on the freeway, blacks out the night.
There's a slipping on the stairway, just don't feel right.
And there's a rumbling in the bedroom and a flashing of light.
Dmaj7 Dm7 C(addD)
There's the "Old Laughing Lady", ev'rything is all right.

Don't call pretty Peggy,
She can't hear you no more
Don't leave no message
Round her back door
They say the old laughing lady
Been here before
She don't keep time
She don't count score
G C G
You can't have a cupboard
