      I FEEL LUCKY    Mary Chapin Carpenter 

B B B B   B B B B    B B B B    B B B B 

        B                             
Well I woke up this morning stumbled out of my rack
   B    
I opened up the paper to the page in the back
    E    
It only took a moment for my finger to find
    B
My daily dose of destiny, under my sign
    F#
My eyes just about popped out of my head
              B stop
It said "the stars are stacked against you girl, get back in bed"
 
CHORUS:
        E              B
I feel lucky, I feel lucky, yeah
F#
No Professor Doom gonna stand in my way
B stop                         B B B B
   Mmmmm, I feel lucky today    [instrumental]
          B
Well I strolled down to the corner, gave my numbers to the clerk
B
The pot's eleven million so I called in sick to work
    E
I bought a pack of Camels, a burrito and a Barq's
   B
Crossed against the light, made a beeline for the park
     F#
The sky began to thunder, wind began to moan
            B
I heard a voice above me saying, "girl, you better get back home"
             E                       B 
But I feel lucky, oh oh oh, I feel lucky, yeah
F#       
No tropical depression gonna steal my sun away
B stop                       
  Mmmmm, I feel lucky today
 
B stop
Now eleven million later, I was sitting at the bar
(A)   B [stop]
I'd bought the house a double, and the waitress a new car
        E [stop]
Dwight Yoakam's in the corner, trying to catch my eye
(A)  B [stop]
Lyle Lovett's right beside me with his hand upon my thigh
(A)    F# [stop]                  F# [stop]
  The moral of this story, it's simple but it's true
          D                       B7
Hey the stars might lie, but the numbers never do
         E                       B  
I feel lucky, oh oh oh, I feel lucky, yeah 
F#
Hey Dwight, hey Lyle, boys, you don't have to fight
B stop       
  Hot dog, I'm feeling lucky tonight
         E                     B 
I feel lucky, brrrrr, I feel lucky, yeah
F#
Think I'll flip a coin, I'm a winner either way
B stop                        B 
  Mmmmmm, I feel lucky today
