Intro:

D  Em  A  D

D  Em  A  D


#1:
D                        Em
The sun comes up and the sun goes down
        A                     D
And the hands on the clock go round and round
D                          Em
An' I just get up and it's time to lay down,
A                        D
Life gets tee-jus, don't it?

#2:
D                     Em
My shoe's untied, but shucks, I don't care
      A                D
Cuz I reckon I ain't a-goin' nowhere,
D                    Em
I'd wash my face and comb my hair
A                                D
Huh, Just too much wasted effort.


D  Em  A D

#3:
D                        Em
I open the door and the flies swarm in
           A                     D
and when I shut the door  I'm a'sweating again
D                     Em
and in the process, I crack my shin
A                        D
Just one durned thing after another

#4:
D                        Em
The cow went dry and the hens won't lay
        A                      D
And the fish all goodbyed last Saturday
D                          Em
My troubles keep pilin' up day by day
[No Chord]
(Long pause) And now I'm getting dandruff

A                        D

Instrumental fill:
D  Em  A  D

D  Em  A  D

#5:
D                                      Em
My old grey mule, you know I think the rascal's sick
           A                            D
For when I stuck him on the rump with a pin on a stick
D                             Em
He humped up his back, but he just wouldn't kick
A                          D
Theres something cock-eyed somewhere.

#6
D                    Em
Old hounds a'howlin' so forlorn
          A                D
Thats the laziest dog that ever was born
D                         Em
He's howlin' because he's sittin' on a thorn
A                          D
An' he's just too tired to move over.

D  Em A D

#6
D                       Em
Tin Roof leaks and the chimney leans,
A                                    D
An' there's a hole in the seat of my old blue jeans
D                              Em
And Ive ate up the last of the pork an' beans,
A                            D
Just can't depend on nuthin'

Instrumental fill:
D  Em  A  D

D  Em  A  D

#7
D                                Em
The mouse been a' gnawin' on my cupboard door
           A                      D
He's been at it now for I guess a month or more
D                           Em
When he gets in  there he's sure gonna be sore
A                        D
'Cause there ain't a darn thing in it.

D  Em A D

#8
D                              Em
Well, it's debts and taxes and pains and woes
A                      D
Aches and miseries and that's how it goes
D                          Em
And dow I'm detting a coad in the nose,
A                            D
  Life gets tasteless, don't it?

Instrumental fill:
D  Em  A  D

D  Em  A  D

#9
D                        Em
The sun comes up and the sun goes down
      A                D
And the hands on the clock go round and roumd
D                      Em
I just get up and it's time to lay down,
A                        D
Life gets tee-jus, don't it?
