Crazy As A Loon Song 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 T-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-tonkin’ 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
Yeah, 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…………

Crazy As A Loon Song Chords


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
