SONG:DEAR ABBY 
ARTIST:John Prine  Capo on 4th

I SUBMITTED A TAB FOR THIS A WHILE BACK BUT IT DIDN'T SOUND QUITE RIGHT.
I WATCHED A VIDEO OF JP PLAYING THIS SONG AND THIS IS DEFINITELY CORRECT

[Verse 1]
G                         C            G           
Dear Abby, Dear Abby, my feet are too long
   G                           D    
My hair's falling out and my rights are all wrong
    G                                   C            G
My friends they all tell me, that i've no friends at all
 G                                     D          G
Won't you write me a letter, won't you give me a call
 C    D      G
SiIIIgned Bewildered


[Chorus]
G                          C            G
Bewildered, Bewildered you have no complaint
 G                            D
You are what you are and you ain't what you ain't
 G                   C         G
So listen up buster listen up good
 G                             D          G
Stop wishin' for bad luck and knockin' on wood
 C   D         G
siiiiigned Dear Abby


[Verse 2]
 G                        C            G
Dear Abby, Dear Abby, my fountain pen leaks
  G                          D
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
SiIIIgned Unhappy

[Chorus]
G                    C            G
Unhappy Unhappy you have no complaint
 G                            D
You are what you are and you ain't what you ain't
 G                   C         G
So listen up buster listen up good
 G                             D          G
Stop wishin' for bad luck and knockin' on wood

[Verse 3]
 G                        C              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
 C    D    G
SiIIIgned Noisemaker.

[Chorus]
G                          C            G

 G                            D
You are what you are and you ain't what you ain't
 G                   C         G
So listen up buster listen up good
 G                             D          G
Stop wishin' for bad luck and knockin' on wood

[Verse 4]
 G                         C      G
Dear Abby, Dear Abby, well I never thought
 G                               D
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
 C     D      G
SiIIIIgned Just Married


[Chorus]
G                             C            G
Just Married Just Married you have no complaint
 G                            D
You are what you are and you ain't what you ain't
 G                   C         G
So listen up buster listen up good
 G                             D          G
Stop wishin' for bad luck and knockin' on wood
 C   D         G

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.
