AUTHOR's Note:
This version was borne out of the frustration of not finding an accurate TAB 
to match Lennon's twist on C&W music '...with a conscience".

Comment from Rolling Stone:
"Crippled Inside", Imagine, 1971
Lennon followed the opening peace anthem on his second album with this grenade 
wrapped in rockabilly rhythm and prairie-saloon piano, with a slinky country-boy 
solo on dobro by George Harrison.  
The chorus 'One thing you can't hide, Is when you're crippled inside.' may have 
been a slap at ex-bandmate Paul McCartney 
(who would get it full blast on Side Two, in 'How Do You Sleep?').  
But when Lennon wrote in the second person, he often did it staring into a mirror."
