 AC
Well, I used to drive a cab, you know   
 C
 I heard a siren scream
 D
 Pulled over to the corner
 CAsus2
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,
 CAsus2
 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,
 CAsus2AAsus2A
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
 CA
 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
 CA
To be so far over my head.
 E7
Well, the lady made the wedding
And she brought along the ring.
 DC
She got down on her knees
 CAsus2A7
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
 CA7
 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,
 CA7
I'll mail you back the key.    
 E7
Well I woke up in the morning
With an arrow through my nose
 DDsus4
There was an Indian in the corner
 CAsus2EmAsus2Em
 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
 CAsus2A
'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
 CAsus2
I guess I'd never have been caught.  
 E7
They gave me back my house and car
 Asus2A
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
 CA
But I was afraid to ask. 
The servicemen were yellow
 C
And the gasoline was green.
 D
 Although I knew I couldn't
 CA
I thought that I was gonna scream.
 E7
That was on my last trip to Tulsa
Just before the snow.
 DDsus4
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
 CAsus2
If he helped me swing the axe.   
 AC
                                    I said: No, it's not a case of being lonely
We have here,
 D
I've been working on this palm tree
 CCAAsus2AAsus2AAsus2AAsus2A
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
 CA7
For eighty seven years 
 E7
He said: Go get lost!
And walked towards his Cadillac.
 DDsus4
 I chopped down the palm tree
 C
 And it landed on his back.
