David Allan Coe  A Sense of Humor
Capo 1

      F
Every night another woman
      Bb
Every day a different town
       C
If I'm not accused of speeding
                      F
I'm accused of coming down
With a legal dose of something
         Bb
That you heard was going 'round
        C                               F
And you wondered why I lost my Sense of Humor.

      F
Every song another record
      Bb
Every day just like a clock
        C
Knowing well I've had to take it
                      F
Till I make it to the top
With the devil right behind me
       Bb
And my heart about to stop
         C                               F
Then you wondered why I lost my Sense of Humor.

       Bb
Twenty years I was in prison
     F
More than that I was alone
     Bb
Some lily-white reporter
                            C
Thinks it's time that I was stoned
        F
Without sin, he wrote the story
       Bb
And it chilled me to the bone
        C                               F
Then he wondered why I lost my Sense of Humor.

            F
I shaved my beard and cut my hair off
         Bb
It don't matter anyhow
       C
It was truth that told the answers
                         F
To the questions up till now
"Crucify him," someone shouted
         Bb
From the safety of the crowd
          C                               F
Then they wondered why I lost my Sense of Humor.

               F
Hey, take them crosses from my doorstep
           Bb
There's no reason to my rhyme
          C
Everybody knows somebody
                        F
Will take care of me in time
I made friends of all you stand for
        Bb
But the blind can't lead the blind
        C                               F
Just be glad I haven't lost my Sense of Humor.

        C                               F
Just be glad I haven't lost my Sense of Humor
'Cause if I ever catch you I'm gonna kick your ass.

The album is called David Allen Coe Rides Again. Hands down the best country/western album ever produced by anyone.

Actually, almost all of the songs on "Rides Again" are played capo'ed @ the 3rd fret (DAC capos at the 3rd fret very often). Try "Sense of Humor" capo'ed @ the 3rd, main chords are D - G - A. It's been a while since I've strummed through the entire song, so I can't remember the "20 yrs. I was in prison" bridge part exactly, but it's easy enough to figure out once you're playing it capo'ed @ the 3rd (once again, along with nearly every song on the album). When I get some time on my hands, I'll try to update correct versions of most of DAC's songs (with the exceptions of the ones here that are currently correct, of course).
