Dead Skunk in the Middle of the Road - Loudon Wainwright III

  G                  D
Crossing the highway late last night,
   C                          G
He shoulda looked left and he shoulda looked right.
   G                      D
He didn't see the station wagon car.
    C                      G
The skunk got squashed and there you are.
             G                 D
You got your dead skunk in the middle of the road
C                 G
Dead skunk in the middle of the road
G                 D
Dead skunk in the middle of the road
           C                G
(And it's) Stinking to high heaven

       G                 D
Take a whiff on me. That ain't no rose.
C                       G
Roll up your window and hold your nose.
    G                          D
You don't have to look and you don't have to see
               C                 G
'Cause you can feel it in your olfactory.
          G                         D
Yeah, you got your dead cat and you got your dead dog.
     C                          G
On a moonlit night you got your dead toad frog.
             G                    D
You got your dead rabbit and your dead raccoon.
    C                              G
The blood and the guts, they gonna make you swoon.
C'mon, stink
You got it. It's dead.  It's in the middle.
Dead skunk in the middle
Dead skunk in the middle of the road
Stinking to high heaven
All over the road
Oh, you got pollution.
It's dead.
It's in the middle,
And it's stinkin' to high heaven.

Change the word to dead drunk and it makes for a great live song
