Recorded by Johnny Paycheck
Written by Larry Kingston
[G]It sounds like a mad heard of elephants
Just [C]trampled right through our [G]front room

And added to that a wild heard of horses
[A7]Stampeding through the dark dreary [D7]gloom
But [G]it’s only the beating of a sad aching heart
Com[C]bined with the falling of [G]tears
Ain’t it [C]strange how the mind exagge[G]rates little sounds
That [D7]pride covered ears barely [G]hear

[C]I hear a [D7]time bomb loudly [G]ticking away
Any [C]minute it’s [D7]going to ex[G]plode
But it’s [C]really just the [D7]clock on the [G]wall down the hall
[A7]Counting seconds till you walk out the [D7]door

And it [G]sounds like a man is screaming for his bride
But it’s [C]really just me whispering please [G]stay dear
Ain’t it [C]strange how the mind exagge[G]rates little sounds
That [D7]pride covered ears barely [G]hear[/chordpress]

Who is Johnny Paycheck?
– Johnny Paycheck (born Donald Eugene Lytle May 31, 1938 – February 19, 2003) was an American country music singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and Grand Ole Opry member notable for recording the David Allan Coe song “Take This Job and Shove It”. He achieved his greatest success in the 1970s as a force in country music’s “outlaw movement” popularized by artists Hank Williams Jr., Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Billy Joe Shaver, and Merle Haggard. In the 1980s, his music career slowed due to drug, alcohol and legal problems. He served a prison sentence in the early 1990s and his declining health effectively ended his career in early 2000. In 1980, Paycheck appeared on the PBS music program Austin City Limits (season 5).
