Egg & Daughter Nite, Lincoln Nebraska, 1967 (Crazy Bone)
John Prine.
Album: The Tree Of Forgiveness.
Capo 1.

Intro: D
                 A      D
If you like your apples sweet,
                     A   D
And your streets are not concrete,
D                                   A    
You'll be in your bed by nine every night,
          D              A       D
Take your hand-spanked, corn-fed gal,
                       A
And your best friend's four-eyed pal,
A                                       D
To a treat right down the street that's dynamite,
             D
Now let your conscience be your guide,
       G
If you put your foot inside,
    D                              G
You wish you left your well-enough alone,
         G                        D           B
When you got hell to pay, put the truth on layaway,
    E                A    D
And blame it on that ole' crazy bone.


      G                        D
Crazy bone (crazy bone), crazy bone (crazy bone),
         E                                A     Em7 A
Well you wish you'd left your well-enough alone,
         G                        D           B
When you got hell to pay, put the truth on layaway,
    E               A          D
And blame it on the ole' crazy bone.

D
Don't be stuck up in Alaska, when you should be in Nebraska,
D                                      A
On a Thursday when it's Egg & Daughter Nite,
A
When the farmers come to town, 
A
And they spread them eggs around,
A                                                D
And they drop their daughters down at the roller rink,
D
Well you're probably standing there
D
With your slicked-back, brylcreem hair,
D                                        G
Your Lucky's and your daddy's fine-tooth comb,
G
If they knew what you were thinking.
       D              B
They'd run you out of Lincoln,
     E                A    D
Just blame it on that ole' crazy bone,

      G                        D
Crazy bone (crazy bone), crazy bone (crazy bone),
         E                                   A
Well you must have left your wisdom tooth at home,
        G
If they knew what you were thinking,
       D              B
They'd run you out of Lincoln,
E               A          D
Blame it on the ole' crazy bone.

D
When the grandkids all are grown,
D
And they put you in a home,
D                           A
And eternity is approaching fast,
A
Yeah you're half out of your head,
A
And you probably pissed the bed,
A                                      D
And you can't see a thing to save your ass,
D
And far across the prairie (prairie),
D
In the local cemetery ('tery),
D                                        G
They already got your name carved out in stone,
G                                  D            A    B
When all them nurses say, "Grandpa why you walk that way?"
     E                A          D
Just blame it on that ole' crazy bone, 
     E                A      
Yeah blame it on that ole' crazy...


G                        D
bone (crazy bone), crazy bone (crazy bone),
    E                            A   
And everybody in that old folks' home,
        G
If they knew what you were thinking,
       D              B
They'd run you out of Lincoln,
E7              A          D
Blame it on the ole' crazy bone.
    E7        A                  D    B
And everybody in that old folks' home,
     E7               A          D
Yeah blame it on that ole' crazy bone.
