THE OLD LAUGHING LADY

F                       Am/G                      Gmaj7  Am/G    
Don't call pretty Peggy, she can't hear you no more.

F                     Am/G           Gmaj7
Don't leave no message 'round her back door.

C/G                                        F      Am/G
They say the "Old Laughing Lady" been here before.

     Gmaj7         Cm7               F
She don't keep time, she don't count score.

F  Cm7  Dm7  F

You can't have a cupboard if there ain't no wall.
You got to move, There's no time left to stall.
They say the "Old Laughing Lady" dropped by to call.
When she leaves, she leaves nothing at all.

Gmaj7  Cm7  Gmaj7  Cm7  C/G  Gmaj7  Cm7  Gmaj7  Cm7  C/G  F

See the drunkyard of the village falling on the street.
Can't tell his ankles from the rest of his feet.
He loves his old laughing lady 'cause her taste is so sweet.
But the laughing lady's lovin', ain't the kind he can keep.

F  (G/D#)  G/F  F

There's a fever on the freeway, blacks out the night.
There's a slipping on the stairway, just don't feel right.
And there's a rumbling in the bedroom and a flashing of light.
               Gmaj7           Cm7                     F(addD)
There's the "Old Laughing Lady", ev'rything is all right.

 And a flashin' of light

 F                            
 There's the old laughing lady

      F                  F
 Everything is all right 

 F                            
 There's the old laughing lady

      F                  F
 Everything is all right 

 F Dm F F x2
                                                                       
 notes: the quick change to C and G at the end of many lines is omitted
 it occurs everywhere but  'if there ain't no wall / you got to move...'
 the run through from C to Am via the B note is a familiar ny trick...

 added:
Neil embellishes the G chords by hammering on the 
E note on the second fret of the D string with his
index finger.
I also believe  that he plays some of his G chords
in the D chord shape at the 7th fret (G/D).
Strum loosely with an easy feel.
