Fate's Right Hand
Rodney Crowell
CD: Fate's Right Hand
Written By: Rodney Crowell
Tabbed by Jason Marbach - email questions to Smoothie7745 at

Intro:  Bm  G  A  Bm

Verse 1:
Cool as a rule you don't learn in no school
You can't brown nose the teacher from the dunce hat stool
It's the hum and the rhythm, the birds and the bees
The mommas and the poppas and the monkeys in the trees
Brothers and sisters living life on the street
Play the hunch, pull the punch, you'll never get beat
By the junk food tatooed white dude true blued
Honky with an attitude coming unglued

G                     Em                        Bm
   Fate's right hand......I don't understand at all

Billy loves women like a junkie loves dope
Give him just enough rope and the monkey's gon' choke
She's a Bill Blass combo maxed out mombo
D.K.N.Y. caught him in a lie
Ken Starr worried, man we're talking absurd
Spending 40 million dollars just to give a man the bird
He's a King, she's a Queen, so the rap won't stick
Get it on with a rubber and you won't get sick


Redrum dot com dim sum smart bombs
Double cappucciono and a heart like a tom tom
Ozone long gone, that's it, I quit
Natural inclination says enough of this
Brat pack, black jack, heart attack, crack
We need another news channel like a hole in the back
There's a 187 on the 405
We all go to heaven on a hard disk drive


Guitar Solo:  Bm  G   A  Bm  G   A   G   A   Bm

Hard rain fish seine Hurricane Jane
Don't forget about Carla when you're talkin' 'bout the poon tang
Slow song on the bone, Rec Hall dance
Double-date Debbie with a pole in my pants
First comes love like it always did
Or we wouldn't be talkin' 'bout the Houston Kid
Po-dunk piss-chunk old dead skunk drunk
Trotline Freddy's got his dogs in the trunk

Chorus (2x)

Guitar Outro:  Bm   G   A   Bm
               Bm   G   A   Bm
