Well, I[A] used to drive a cab, you know [C]
[C]I heard a siren scream
[D]Pulled over to the corner
And I [C]fell into a dream[Asus2]
There were[A] two men eating pennies
[C]And three young girls who cried
[D]The West coast is falling,
[C]I see rocks in the sky.[Asus2]
[E7]The preacher took his bible
And laid it on the stool.
He said: [D]with the congregation running,
Why should [C]I play the fool?[Asus2] [A] [Asus2] [A]
Well, I used to be a woman, you know
[C]I took you for a ride,
[D]I let you fly my airplane
[C]It looked good for your pride. [A]
'Cause you're the kind of man you know
[C]Who likes what he says.
[D]I wonder what's it's like
To be so far [C]over my [A]head.
Well, the[E7] lady made the wedding
And she brought along the ring.
She [D]got down on her kn[C]ees
And said: [C]Let's get on with this thing.[Asus2] [A7]
Well, I used to be a folk singer
[C]Keeping managers alive,
[D]When you saw me on a corner
[C]And told me I was jive.[A7]
So I unlocked your mind, you know
[C]To see what I could see.
[D]If you guarantee the postage,
I'll [C]mail you back the key. [A7]
Well I [E7]woke up in the morning
With an arrow through my nose
There was an [D]Indian in the [Dsus4]corner
[C]Tryin' on my clothes.[Asus2] [Em] [Asus2] [Em]
Well, I [A]used to be asleep you know
[C]With blankets on my bed.
[D]I stayed there for a while
'Til they [C]discovered I was dead.[Asus2] [A]
The coroner was friendly
[C]And I liked him quite a lot.
[D]If I hadn't 've been a woman
I guess I'd [C]never have been caught. [Asus2]
They[E7] gave me back my house and car
And nothing more was said. [Asus2] [A]
Well, I was driving down the freeway
When my [C]car ran out of gas.
[D]Pulled over to the station
But I [C]was afraid to ask.[A]
The servicemen were yellow
And the [C]gasoline was green.
[D]Although I knew I couldn't
I thought that [C]I was gonna [A]scream.
That was on my [E7]last trip to Tulsa
Just before the snow.
If you [D]ever need a [Dsus4]ride there,
C Asus2 Em x4 Asus2
Be sure to let me know.
I was [A]chopping down a palm tree
[C]When a friend dropped by to ask
[D]If I would feel less lonely
If he [C]helped me swing the axe. [Asus2]
[A] [C] 
I said: No, it's not a case of being lonely
We have here,
I've been [D]working on this palm tree
For [C]eighty seven years[C] [A] [Asus2] [A] [Asus2] [A] [Asus2] [A] [Asus2] [A]
I said: No, it's not a case of being [C]lonely
We have here,
[D]I've been working on this palm tree
For eighty seven [C]years[A7]
He said: [E7]Go get lost!
And walked towards his Cadillac.
[D]I chopped down the [Dsus4]palm tree
[C]And it landed on his back.
