 G                                     D          G

My wife hollers at me and my kids are all freaks
 G                             C            G
Every side I get up on is the wrong side of bed
 G                             D           G
If it weren't so expensive I'd wish I were dead
 C    D    G

Dear Abby, Dear Abby, you won't believe this
  G                           D
But my stomache makes noises whenever I kiss
 G                          C         G
My girlfriend tells me it's all in my head
  G                          D         G
But my stomache tells me to write you instead

That me and my girlfriend would ever get caught
  G                                    C            G
We were sittin' in the back seat just shootin' the breeze
    G                                D            G
With her hair up in curlers and her pants to her knees

Chords are correct but capo should be placed on the fourth fret.

Thanks bluenose15. I have noticed that John Prine moves the Capo to different places a lot. Especially since his neck sugery. I have found several different videos of him playing the same song with the capo in different positions. You are correct though, to duplicate the most popular live version on the albums it is Capo on 4th fret. THANK YOU!! I will correct it.
