Pride Covered Ears Song Lyrics and Chords by Johnny Paycheck

 

Pride Covered Ears
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

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).
