[Verse 1] [John Prine]
C 
She don't like her eggs all runny

She thinks crossin' her legs is funny
F
She looks down her nose at money
C
She gets it on like the easter bunny
G
She's my baby I'm her honey
                        C
I'm never gonna let her go

[Verse 2] [Iris DeMent]
C
He ain't got laid in a month of sundays

I caught him once and he was sniffin' my undies
F
He ain't too sharp but he gets things done
C
Drinks his beer like it's oxygen
G
He's my baby,   And I'm his honey
                    C
Never gonna let him go

[Chorus]
C           F
In spite of ourselves
                            C
We'll end up a'sittin' on a rainbow
            G
Against all odds
                          C
Honey, we're the big door prize
            F
We're gonna spite our noses
                 C
Right off of our faces
                                   G
There won't be nothin' but big old hearts
               C
Dancin' in our eyes.

[Instrumental] C   F       C    F    C    F    C     G

[Verse 3] [John Prine]
C 
She thinks all my jokes are corny

Convict movies make her horny
F
She likes ketchup on her scrambled eggs
C
Swears like a sailor when shaves her legs
G 
She takes a lickin'     And keeps on tickin'
                        C
I'm never gonna let her go.

[Verse 4] [Iris DeMent]
C 
He's got more balls than a big brass monkey

He's a wacked out werido and a lovebug junkie
F
Sly as a fox and crazy as a loon
C
Payday comes and he's howlin' at the moon
G
He's my baby I don't mean maybe
                    C
Never gonna let him go

[Chorus]
C           F
In spite of ourselves
                            C
We'll end up a'sittin' on a rainbow
            G
Against all odds
                          C
Honey, we're the big door prize
            F
We're gonna spite our noses
                 C
Right off of our faces
                                   G
There won't be nothin' but big old hearts
               C
Dancin' in our eyes.
                                   G
There won't be nothin' but big old hearts
               C
Dancin' in our eyes. 

[Outro](spoken)
C           F
In spite of ourselves,
                         C
we'll end up sittin on a rainbow.
            G
Against all odds, 
                         C                  F
honey we're the big door prize, We're gonna spite 
                        C
Our noses right off our faces, 
                                       G
there won't be nothing but our big old hearts
               C
Dancing in our eyes
