D                      G
Oh I love you baby.  I love you night and day.
D                      G
When I leave you baby. Don't cry the night away.
D                              G
When I die don't you write. No words upon my tomb.
D                                  G
I don't believe I want to leave no epitaph of doom.

D              A            D          G
Oh oh oh oh. When I'm dead and gone
D                    A                D     G A
I want to leave some happy woman living on.
D              A          D            G
Oh oh oh oh. When I'm dead and gone
D                    A               G            D
don't want nobody to mourn beside my grave.

(note – at the end of the first chorus couplet, G->A progression is much quicker than
other changes – same as in the outro)

D                         G
Oh my Melinda, she's out to get my hide.
D                            G
She's got a shotgun and her daughter by her side.
D                    G
Hey there ladies. Johnson's free.
D                                     G
Who's got the love, who's got enough to keep a man like me?

D              A            D          G
Oh oh oh oh. When I'm dead and gone
D                    A                D     G A
I want to leave some happy woman living on.
D              A          D            G
Oh oh oh oh. When I'm dead and gone
D                    A               G            D
Don't want nobody to mourn beside my grave.

Instrumental / solo (to play this, you need a kazoo and to forget how to play the guitar
– otherwise, twiddling on the D pentatonic suffices)

D              A            D          G
Oh oh oh oh. When I'm dead and gone
D                    A               D     G A
I want to leave some happy woman living on.
D              A          D            G
Oh oh oh oh. When I'm dead and gone
D                    A               G            D
Don't want nobody to mourn beside my grave.

Outro:

D / / / G / A / (repeat & fade – or end on D)

Ooh la la la

The first line of the 2nd verse is 'Old mama Linda...'

The chord sequence for the 1st and 3rd lines of the choruses is D - A - Bm - G
