Elephant Song Lyrics

She said, “Andy, you’re better than your past”

Winked at me and drained her glass

Cross-legged on a barstool, like nobody sits anymore

She said, “Andy, you’re taking me home”

But I knew she planned to sleep alone

I’d carry her to bed, sweep up the hair from her floor

******

If I’d fucked her before she got sick

I’d never hear the end of it

She don’t have the spirit for that now

We just drink our drinks and laugh out loud

And bitch about the weekend crowd

And try to ignore the elephant somehow

Somehow

******

She said, “Andy, you crack me up”

Seagram’s in a coffee cup

Sharecropper eyes, and the hair almost all gone

When she was drunk, she made cancer jokes

Made up her own doctors’ notes

Surrounded by her family, I saw that she was dying alone

******

But I’d sing her classic country songs

And she’d get high and sing along

She don’t have a voice to sing with now

We burn these joints in effigy

And cry about what we used to be

Try to ignore the elephant somehow

Somehow

******

I buried her a thousand times, given up my place in line

But I don’t give a damn about that now

There’s one thing that’s real clear to me

No one dies with dignity

We just try to ignore the elephant somehow

We just try to ignore the elephant somehow

We just try to ignore the elephant somehow

Somehow

Somehow

Elephant Song Chords



She said Andy you’re better than your past,

winked at me and drained her glass,

cross-legged on the barstool, like nobody sits anymore.

She said Andy you’re taking me home,

but I knew she planned to sleep alone.

I’d carry her to bed and sweep up the hair from the floor


If I had fucked her before she got sick

I’d never hear the end of it

she don’t have the spirit for that now

We drink these drinks and laugh out loud,

bitch about the weekend crowd,

and try to ignore the elephant somehow

somehow


She said Andy you crack me up,

Seagram’s in a coffee cup,

sharecropper eyes and her hair almost all gone.

When she was drunk she made cancer jokes,

she made up her own doctor’s notes,

surrounded by her family, I saw that she was dying alone.


I’d sing her classic country songs

and she’d get high and sing along.

She don’t have much voice to sing with now

We’d burn these joints in effigy,

cry about what we used to be,

and try to ignore the elephant somehow.

Somehow


I buried her a thousand times,

given up my place in line,

but I don’t give a damn about that now

There’s one thing that’s real clear to me,

no one dies with dignity.

We just try to ignore the elephant somehow.

We just try to ignore the elephant somehow.

We just try to ignore the elephant somehow.
Somehow.

Somehow.
