Take Out Some Insurance  J J Cale

[D]                                         [G] 
A man knocked upon the door, said "Don't you know you're gonna die some

I've got a plan for you, man, for when you pass away.

     [D]                       [G]           [D] 
We'll give to your mother, your kids and your wife

                             [G]          [D] 
and all you have to give in return is your life.

Take out some insurance, insurance today,

   [D]                    [C]      [D] 
for tomorrow will come and take us away.


                           [G]            [D] 
Two men were gambling in ~a something~ one night

when a woman walked in with her dress up so tight.

   [G]                                              [D] 
She asked the two gentlemen would they fight for her name.

                                 [C]           [D] 
They got up and shot her and went back to their game.

[bridge, all on a D chord except for the final C-D like the end of each

                            [G]         [D] 
This aint no sad song, don't cry in your beer,

for one day will come and we won't be here.

[G]                           [D] 
Somebody else will take up our game,

                [C]       [D] 
different place, different name.

[--]Ian Prideaux
