Rough On The Living
Recorded by Bobby Bare
Written by Shel Silverstein

C G7 C
His picture was in all the papers

They said that a legend had passed
F
The late evening news did a special report
C
And swore that his memory would last


They're playing his records all weekend
C7 F
Praising the life that he lived
C
Nashville is rough on the living
G7 C
But she really speaks well of the dead

G7 C
The wife that they interviewed cried

Is the same one who left him last fall
F
And the record producer who called him a hero
C
Is the one who wouldn't answer his calls


The ladies they sit over coffee
C7 F
Bragging bout sharing his bed
C
They didn't want him around when he's living
G7 C
But he's sure a good friend when he's dead

F C
They observed twenty seconds of silence
G7 C
At the Opry on Saturday night
F C
And they're searching the bars and the basements
D7 G7
For some souvenir of his life

C G7 C
They're planning a book for September

Showing his plain country roots
F
Any they're selling the rights to the movie
C
And the Hall of Fame's getting his boots


At the funeral somebody recited a poem
C7 F
That told how he suffered and bled
C
Nashville is rough on the living
G7 C
But she really speaks well of the dead

F C
Yeah Nashville is rough on the living
G7 C
But she really speaks well of the dead
