   E        E7    A              E


Verse 1:
E                               A                E
   Well, One-Arm Steve, yeah he threw me out the door
E                                    A                E
   Said come back sometime when your picture's on the wall
E
   Hey now, you got to get on out,
       A                  E
Got no time to field your problems
C                B              E
   God damn, the repo man, been knocking on the door
C                        B
   Said sonny, won't you walk this line,
             E               G
And put your hands up on the car
         A                           C
Well, he may not be a talker, but he always knows
B               E
   What's going on

(Main Groove x2)

Verse 2:
So Sister Ann, she sat my ass up on the table
Said sit still son, 'cause this won't hurt a bit
Hey, now she's got a wonder drug
For this deaf, dumb, and blind man
Took me to the hospital, some nurse rolled up my sleeve
Hey Annie, break my walking stick,
And work a miracle on me
She may not be the doctor, but she always knows
What's going on

(Main Groove x2)

Verse 3:
Well Say Hey Willy Mays, what's in your
   suitcase full of wonders
E                      C              B
Big city doctor fix me up and make me right
He said poppin' the devil's pills,
Will take you straight to hell, boy
God damn, the reaper man, he just walked through the door
He said sonny won't you step outside
And we can settle on your soul
Willie Mays is not a toker, but he always knows
What's going on

(Main Groove)
         A                          C
Yeah, he may not be a toker, but he always knows
B               E
   What's going on
(Main Groove x2)
