Lonesome Friends Of Silence.
John Prine.
Album: The Tree Of Forgiveness.

Intro: C

The lonesome friends of science say,
    F
The world will end most any day,
      C                      Em
Well, if it doesn't, that's okay,
               G6        G
'Cause I don't live here anyway,
  C
I live down deep inside my head,
F                Dm7
Well, long ago I made my bed,
C
I get my mail in Tennessee,
   Em       G6      G             C
My wife, my dog and my family, uh-huh,

C
Poor ol' planet Pluto now,
F
He never stood a chance no how,
C
When he got uninvited to,
    G         G6
The interplanetary dance,
C
Once a mighty planet there,
F             
Now just an ordinary star,
C
Hanging out in Hollywood,
   Em       G6    G
In some ol' funky sushi bar,

    C
The lonesome friends of science say,
    F
The world will end most any day,
C                            Em
Well, if it doesn't, that's okay,
         G6              G
'Cause I don't live here anyway,
C                              Am
I live down deep inside my head,
F                Dm7
Well, long ago I made my bed,
C
I get my mail in Tennessee,
   Em       G6      G               C
My wife, my dog, my kids and me, uh-huh,


The Vulcan lives in Birmingham.
    F
Sometimes he just don't give a damn.
    C
His head is full of bumblebees.
G
His pride hangs down below his knees.
C
Venus left 'em long ago.
      F
For a guy named Mars from Idaho.
C
The Vulcan sent a wedding gift.
      Em     G6          G                
Three-legged stool and a wheelchair lift.
   C
Uh-huh,


The lonesome friends of science say,
     F
This world will end most any day,
C                            Em
Well, if it doesn't, that's okay,
         G6              G
'Cause I don't live here anyway,
C
I live down deep inside my head,
F                Dm7
Well, long ago I made my bed,
C
I get my mail in Tennessee,
   Em       G6      G               C
My wife, my dog, my kids and me, uh-huh,
   Am Am7  C       Am Am7  C
Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh,


Those bastards in their white lab coats,
F                            
Who experiment with mountain goats,
C
Should leave the Universe alone,
     G
It's not their business, not their home,
C
I go to sleep and it never rains,
   F
My dog predicts a hurricane,
C
She can smell a storm a mile away,
Em             G6      G              C
That's all the news we have today, uh-huh,


The lonesome friends of science say,
     F
This world will end most any day,
C                            Em
Well, if it doesn't, that's okay,
               G6           G
'Cause I don't live here anyway,
  C
I live down deep inside my head,
F                Dm7
Well, long ago I made my bed,
C
I get my mail in Tennessee,
   Em       G6               G      C
My wife, my dog, my kids and me, uh-huh,
   Am Am7  C       Am Am7  C
Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh.
