SAFETY JOE
JOHN PRINE

        G
Well he never got too lonely
       C
And he never got too sad
       D
But he never got too happy
    G
And thats whats just too bad
   G
He never reached much further
         C
Than his lonely arms would go
          D
He wore a seatbelt around his heart
         G
And they called him Safety Joe


CHORUS:
       G
Safety Joe (Safety Joe)
       C
Safety Joe (Safety Joe)
G 
What do you say
            D7
What do you know
            G           G7 (I prefer the G7 on the word "buckle")
If you dont loosen up the buckle
        C
On your heart and start to chuckle
      D7
Youre gonna die of boredom
       G             
Safety Joe


Now Joe he lived in Baltimore
Cause New York was too darn fast
He sometimes went down to Washington
Just to view our nations past
He never ate his vegetables
Cause they were just too darn chewy
And he never climbed much higher
Than the arch in old St. Louis

CHORUS

Joe gradually grew meaner
By not changin his demeanor
But he never did nothin
Too much for too long
Therefore his life never got much richer
Than the day they took that picture
In his birthday suit
On the day that he was born

CHORUS

Well youre gonna die of boredom Safety Joe
