CRAZY AS A LOON
JOHN PRINE

A                   D
Back before I was a movie star
                    A
Straight off of the farm
                    E
I had a picture of another man's wife
              A
Tattoed on my arm
A                    D
With a pack of Camel cigarettes
                        A
In the sleeve of my tee shirt
                     E
I was heading out to Hollywood
                         A
Just to have my feelings hurt


A                       D
That town will make you crazy
                      A
Just give it a little time
                            E
You'll be walking 'round in circles
                      A
Down at Hollywood and Vine
A                      D
You'll be waitin' on a phone call
                      A
At the wrong end of a broom
                          E
Yes that town'll make you crazy
           A
Crazy as a loon


A                   D
So I headed down to Nashville
                    A
To become a country star
                          E
Every night you'd find me hangin'
                        A
At every honky-tonk and bar
A                   D
Pretty soon I met a woman
                        A
Pretty soon she done me wrong
                        E
Pretty soon my life got sadder
                 A
Than any country song


A                     D
That town'll make you crazy
                      A
Just give it a little time
                            E
You'll be walkin' 'round in circles
                         A
Lookin' for that country rhyme
A                      D                              
You'll be waitin' on a phone call
                       A
At the wrong ened of a broom
                          E
Yes that town'll make you crazy
           A
Crazy as a loon


A                   D
So I gathered up my savvy
                         A
Bought myself a business suit
                        E
I headed up to New York City
                          A
Where a man can make some loot
A                  D
I got hired Monday morning
                    E
Downsized that afternoon
                         E
Overcome with grief that evening
                   A
Now I'm crazy as a loon


A                     D  
So I'm up here in the north woods
                  A
Just staring at a lake
                       E
Wondering just exactly how much
                     A
They think a man can take
A                      D 
I eat fish to pass the time away
                          A
'Neath this blue Canadian moon
                           E
This old world has made me crazy
           A
Crazy as a loon
A                             E
Lord this world will make you crazy 
           A  
Crazy as a loon
