quick note: for the / chords, you want the bass note to be on the D string and the 
following three chords in E barre chord form. If not, at least make sure the 
voicings have the chromatic line. In the first verse it's F#, G, Ab, A for example. 
Also, I don't know why the chord diagram things F#/A# are two different chords. 
It's F# with A# in the bass

D                                                             A
never put your hat on the bed, son, never put your hat on the bed
            D            D/F#          G       Ab
cuz if your hat's on the bed you might wake up dead
            A                       D
so don't ya never put ya hat on the bed
                                                                           A
and if you do be sure it’s upside down, son, if you do be sure it’s upside down
    D              D/F#                G                 Ab
cuz if there’s any doubt, it keeps the luck from runnin’ out
          A                      D
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
          D             D/F#          G           Ab
don't you never throw a match cuz the grass might catch
    A                             D
and burn three counties when it's dry

                                                                    A
always keep an edge on your knife, son, always keep an edge on your knife
      D          D/F#      G          Ab                A                      D
cuz a good sharp edge is a man's best hedge against the vague uncertainties of life
       D    D/F#                  G    Ab                A                     D
yes, a good sharp edge is a man’s best hedge against the uncertain vagaries of life
      D                      F#m             Bm               G
but I never could sharpen no knife, like the one who gave the advice
      D             A           D    A   D

           E             E/G#            A              Bb
cuz if you don't tip the glass, well the foam, it comes fast
    B                          E
and runs from the table to the floor

                                                                    B

cuz a good sharp edge is a man's best hedge against the vague uncertainties of life
       E    E/G#                  A    Bb                B                     E
