The Bottomless Lake chords by John Prine

John Prine Chords

John Prine........The Bottomless Lake

Intro (Capo on 3rd Fret):
(C) (G) (D) (G)
(C) (G) (D) (G)

(G)Here's the story of a man and his family
And a b(D)ig trip that they to(G)ok
Well, I heard all about in a restaurant
And I r(A)ead it in a history bo(D)ok
They r(C)ented a car at the E(G)rie Can*l
But the car didn't have no br(C)ake
Said Ma to Pa "My G(G)od this car"
"Is gonna f(D)all into the Bottomless L(G)ake"
(C) (G) (D) (G)

(G)Well, Mama turned to Daddy with a pale face
Said "I've d(D)one something horribly wr(G)ong"
"Well, the waters still runnin' in the bathtub"
And I th(A)ink I left the kitchen light (D)on"
Then I he(C)ard a crash the c(G)ar when splash
And the compass rolled around and ar(C)ound
Oh, for Heaven's Sake! We f(G)ell in a lake
And I th(D)ink we're all gonna dr(G)own

We are fa(D)lling down
Down to the bottom of a h(G)ole in the ground
Smoke 'em if you got 'em
I'(C)m so scared I can ha(G)rdly breathe
I may n(D)ever see my sweatheart ag(G)ain
(C)Play once after first verse (G) (D) (G)
(C) (G) (D) (G)

(G)There was plenty of food in the backseat
And the wi(D)ndows were rolled up ti(G)ght
So we all nibbled on a chicken leg
Told st(A)ories 'way thru' the n(D)ight
We(C)ll, Pa told one that he t(G)old before
And the baby got a bellya(C)che
Said Ma to Pa "My G(G)od this car"
"Falling d(D)own a Bottomless L(G)ake" (Repeat Chorus)

(G)Poppa played the music on the radio
M(D)ama rocked the baby to sl(G)eep
He said he would've taken the other road
But he di(A)dn't think the lake was that d(D)eep
Well, if the f(C)erry been there at the (G)end of the pier
We'd be half way to Uncle Ja(C)ke's
Instead of looking at fish out the w(G)indow I wish
We'd hit the bo(D)ttom of the Bottomless L(G)ake
'Stead of lo(C)oking at fish out the wi(G)ndow I wish
We'd hit the b(D)ottom of the Bottomless L(G)ake (Repeat Chorus)

(G)So if you're ever goin' on a big trip
Ya be(D)tter be careful out th(G)ere
Start everything on you good foot
And (A)wear clean u(D)nderwear
T(C)ake along a Bible in the ba(G)ckseat
Read of David and Solo(C)mon
For if you make a mistake in the Bottomless L(G)ake
You may ne(D)ver see your sweetheart ag(G)ain
If you sh(C)ould make a mistake in the Bot(G)tomless Lake
You may ne(D)ver see your sweetheart a(G)gain
If you sh(C)ould make a mistake in the Bot(G)tomless Lake
You may n(D)ever see your sweetheart ag(G)ain
(C) (G) (D) (G)
(C) (G) (D) (G) (D) (G)
