Drunk By Noon


Standard Tuning 

It's either in 3/4 or 6/8 time. I have hard time telling the difference. 

-- Verse I -- 

D                             C                G 
There once was a poodle who thought he was a cowboy 
D                        C           G 
He lived in a cage the size of his thumb 
D                                  C          G 
And, though his white horse was a box of toothpicks 
D                                C        G 
He galloped around until he was hit by a car 

-- Verse II -- 

D                    C              G 
Sometimes I flap my arms like a hummingbird 
D                     C           G 
Just to remind myself I'll never fly 
D                    C              G 
Sometimes I burn my arms with a cigarette 
D                        C             G 
Just to pretend I won't scream when I die 

-- Chorus -- 

      C                       G 
If my life was as long as the moon's 
     C                      G 
I'd still be jealous of the sun 
       C                   G 
If my life lasted only one day  
    A        C        G 
I'd still be drunk by noon 
         A        C        G 
Yes I'd still be drunk by noon 

*Whistling Verse* 

-- Verse III -- 

D                   C              G 
Sometimes I hope I come down with cancer 
D                                                C      G 
At least then I'll get to stay in bed and watch TV all day 
D                        C              G  
And on my deathbed I'll get all the answers  
D                             C      G 
Even if all my questions are taken away
