Crazy As A Loon Lyrics

Back before I was a movie star - Straight off of the farm
I had a picture of another man's wife - Tattooed on my arm
With a pack of Camel cigarettes - In the sleeve of my tee shirt
I'm headin' out to Hollywood - Just to have my feelings hurt

That town will make you crazy - Just give it a little time
You'll be walking 'round in circles - Down at Hollywood and Vine
You'll be waitin' on a phone call - At the wrong end of a broom
Yes, that town'll make you crazy - Crazy as a loon

So, I headed down to Nashville - To become a country star
Every night you'd find me hangin' - At every honky-tonk and bar
Pretty soon I met a woman - Pretty soon she done me wrong
Pretty soon my life got sadder - Than any country song

That town will make you crazy - Just give it a little time
You'll be walking 'round in circles - Lookin' for that country rhyme
You'll be waitin' on a phone call - At the wrong end of a broom
Yes, that town'll make you crazy - Crazy as a loon

So, I gathered up my savvy - Bought myself a business suit
I headed up to New York City - Where a man can make some loot
I got hired Monday morning - Downsized that afternoon
Overcome with grief that evening - Now I'm crazy as a loon

So I'm up here in the north woods - Just staring at a lake
Wondering just exactly how much - They think a man can take
I eat fish to pass the time away - 'Neath this blue Canadian moon
This old world has made me crazy - Crazy as a loon

Lord, this world will make you crazy - Crazy as a loon
