Subject: CRD: 'Take Out Some Insurance' by 'J. J. Cale'

Take Out Some Insurance
from "Number 10"
by J. J. Cale

Transcribed from the CD number ORE CD 523
by Ian Prideaux (mailto:ian@netgates.co.uk)
This is a simple song in D major and predictably uses G and A major as
well,
along with the C major at the end of the verses and chorus, a device
which
JJ often uses. It's played on guitar with a smattering of fiddle,
especially in the bridge. In the first line in the second verse, I can't
quite figure out what the ~a something~ is, if anyone knows, email me.
Have Fun.

[D]                                         [G]
[D]
A man knocked upon the door, said "Don't you know you're gonna die some
day"

                                 [A]
I've got a plan for you, man, for when you pass away.

     [D]                       [G]           [D]
We'll give to your mother, your kids and your wife

                             [G]          [D]
and all you have to give in return is your life.


[chorus]
    [G]
Take out some insurance, insurance today,

   [D]                    [C]      [D]
for tomorrow will come and take us away.

[/chorus]

                           [G]            [D]
Two men were gambling in ~a something~ one night

                                           [A]
when a woman walked in with her dress up so tight.

   [G]                                              [D]
She asked the two gentlemen would they fight for her name.

                                 [C]           [D]
They got up and shot her and went back to their game.


[chorus]
[bridge, all on a D chord except for the final C-D like the end of each
verse]

                            [G]         [D]
This aint no sad song, don't cry in your beer,

                                     [A]
for one day will come and we won't be here.

[G]                           [D]
Somebody else will take up our game,

                [C]       [D]
different place, different name.


[chorus]
