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
