Transcribed from the CD number ORE CD 523
This is a simple song in D major and predictably uses G and A major as
well,
along with the C major at the end of the verses and chorus, a device
which
JJ often uses. It's played on guitar with a smattering of fiddle,
especially in the bridge. In the first line in the second verse, I can't
Have Fun.

[D]                                         [G]
[D]
A man knocked upon the door, said "Don't you know you're gonna die some
day"

                                 [A]
I've got a plan for you, man, for when you pass away.

     [D]                       [G]           [D]
We'll give to your mother, your kids and your wife

                             [G]          [D]
and all you have to give in return is your life.


[chorus]
    [G]
Take out some insurance, insurance today,

   [D]                    [C]      [D]
for tomorrow will come and take us away.

[/chorus]

                           [G]            [D]
Two men were gambling in ~a something~ one night

                                           [A]
when a woman walked in with her dress up so tight.

   [G]                                              [D]
She asked the two gentlemen would they fight for her name.

                                 [C]           [D]
They got up and shot her and went back to their game.


[chorus]
[bridge, all on a D chord except for the final C-D like the end of each
verse]

                            [G]         [D]
This aint no sad song, don't cry in your beer,

                                     [A]
for one day will come and we won't be here.

[G]                           [D]
Somebody else will take up our game,

                [C]       [D]
different place, different name.


[chorus]
[chorus]
