Illegal Smile (John Prine)
[G]When I woke up this [D]morning, [C]things were lookin' [G]bad
[C]seems like total [G]silence is the [D]only friend I [G]have
[D]a bowl of oatmeal [C]tried to stare me [G]down... [C]and [G]won
and it was [D]twelve o'clock before I [C]realized that I was [G]havin' [C]no [G]fun
but [D]fortunately I [G]have the key to es[C]cape re[D]ali[G]ty
step up to) C G
and you may see me tonight with an illegal smile
it don't [D]cost very much, but it [G]lasts a long while
(step up to) C G
won't you please tell the man I didn't kill anyone
no I was [D]just tryin' to [C]have me some [G]fun
last [G]time I checked my [D]bankroll, well [C]it was gettin' [G]thin
some[C]times it seems like the [G]bottom is the [D]only place I've [G]been
[D]chased a rainbow [C]down a one-way [G]street... [C]dead [G]end
and [D]all my friends turned [C]out to be in[G]surance [C]sales[G]men
I [G]sat down in my [D]closet with [C]all my over[G]alls
just [C]tryin' to get a[G]way from all the [D]years inside these [G]walls
[D]dreamed the police [C]heard everything I [G]thought... [C]what [G]then?
well I [D]went to court and the [C]judge's name [G]was [C]Hoff[G]man
