Always Keep An Edge On Your Knife

Corb Lund Band

 DA
 Don't never put your hat on the bed, son. Never put your hat on the bed
 DG
'Cause if your hat's on the bed you might wake up dead
 AD
So don't you never put your hat on the bed

 A
But if you do be sure it's upside down, son. If you do be sure it's upside down
 DG
'Cause if there's any doubt it keeps the luck from running out
 AD
So if you do be sure it's upside down

 A
Never throw a match when it's dry, son. Never throw a match when it's dry
 DG
Don't you never throw a match 'Cause the grass might catch
 AD
And burn three counties when it's dry

 A
   Always keep an edge on your knife, son. always keep an edge on your knife
 DG
   'Cause a good sharp edge is a man's best hedge
 AD
   Against the vague uncertainies of life
 DG
   Yes a good sharp edge is a man's best hedge
 AD
   Against the uncertain vagaries of life
 GADG
   But I never could sharpen no knife like the one who give the advice
 DAD
   Yodel-aye, yodel-aye, yodel-ooh

 A
Well never sell the old .22, son. Never sell the old .22
 DG
'Cause the old .22 shot a gofer or two
 AD
So don'tcha never sell the old .22

 A
But aim it to the left, a little low, son. Aim it to the left a little low
 DG
'Cause the old iron sight fires high and to the right
 AD
So aim it to the left, a little low

 A
And always tip the glass when you pour, son. Always tip the glass when you pour
 DG
'Cause if you don't tip the glass then the foam, it comes fast
 AD
And runs from the table to the floor

 A
   Always keep an edge on your knife, son. always keep an edge on your knife
 DG
   'Cause a good sharp edge is a man's best hedge
 AD
   Against the vague uncertainies of life
 DG
   Yes a good sharp edge is a man's best hedge
 AD
   Against the uncertain vagaries of life
 GADG
   But I never could sharpen no knife like the one who give the advice
 DAD
   Yodel-aye, yodel-aye, yodel-ooh

 A
Well be sure to put your horse away dry, son. Be sure to put your horse away dry
 DG
'Cause a hot, wet horse ain't healthy of course
 AD
So be sure put your horse away dry

 A
And be sure to thaw the bit when it's cold, son. Be sure to thaw the bit when it's cold
 DG
'Cause if you don't thaw the bit then your pony's tongue sticks
 AD
To the frozen, metal bridle when it's cold

 A
And never judge a man by his clothes, son. Never judge a man by his clothes
 DG
You gotta look through the dirt and, Lord, judge him by his work
 AD
So don'tcha never judge a man by his clothes

 A
   Always keep an edge on your knife, son. always keep an edge on your knife
 DG
   'Cause a good sharp edge is a man's best hedge
 AD
   Against the vague uncertainies of life
 DG
   Yes a good sharp edge is a man's best hedge
 AD
   Against the uncertain vagaries of life
 GADG
   But I never could sharpen no knife like the one who give the ad-vice
 DAD
   Yodel-aye, yodel-aye, yodel-ooh
 GADG
   But I never could sharpen no blade quite the way that he sayed
 DAD
   Yodel-aye, yodel-aye, yodel-ooh
