Illegal Smile by John Prine

Capo 2nd fret

F                   G        F                   F
When I woke up this morning, things were lookin' bad
F                 F               G    F        F
seemed like total silence was the only friend I had
G                 F                 F       F   F
a bowl of oatmeal tried to stare me down... and won
           G                       F                   F      F  F
and it was twelve o'clock before I realized that I was havin' no fun


      {chorus}
              G             F                 F      G  F
      Ah, but fortunately I have the key to escape reality
      Change to 3/4 time
                  F                      F
      and you may see me tonight with an illegal smile
               G                      F
      it don't cost very much, but it lasts a long while
                F                            F
      won't you please tell the man I didn't kill anyone
               G              F            F   F F F F  F
      no I was just tryin' to have me some fun


Change back to 4/4 time
     F                 G              F              F
last time I checked my bankroll, well it was gettin' thin
    F                       F             G    F          F
sometimes it seems like the bottom is the only place I've been
G                F              F         F    F
chased a rainbow down a one-way street... dead end
    G                     F           F       F    F
and all my friends turned out to be insurance salesmen


      {chorus}
              G             F                 F      G  F
      Ah, but fortunately I have the key to escape reality
      Change to 3/4 time
                  F                      F
      and you may see me tonight with an illegal smile
               G                      F
      it don't cost very much, but it lasts a long while
                F                            F
      won't you please tell the man I didn't kill anyone
               G              F            F   F F F F  F
      no I was just tryin' to have me some fun


Change back to 4/4 time
        F              G           F          F
Well, I sat down in my closet with all my overalls
     F              F                G      F        F
just tryin' to get away from all the ears inside the walls
G                  F                  F          F    F
dreamed the police heard everything I thought... what then?
       G                     F            F   F   F
well I went to court and the judge's name was Hoffman


       {chorus}
              G             F                 F      G  F
      Ah, but fortunately I have the key to escape reality

               G              F            F   F F F F  F
      no I was just tryin' to have me some fun
