This was done for a guitar tuned down a whole step, so these are the chord shapes 
for that (i.e. if you want to do it the same key as the record, take it down to Bb).

TOPSY TURVY
(Rodney Crowell)

C7
Daddyís in the kitchen fryiní sauerkraut
C7
Mommaís in the bedroom nearly all cried out
C7
Daddy thinks that whiskey makes him big and smart
C7
Momma thinks that daddy has a concrete heart
     F5A#5††††††††††    F5†††††††††          A#5††††††††† C7
I wish I had a brother or a sister whom to I could turn

C7
Bustiní out the windows with a baseball bat
C7
Daddyís gone crazy as a bunk-house rat
C7
Mommaís on the sofa with a big black eye
C7
I cross my heart and tell myself ĎI hope they dieí
     F5A#5††††††††††          F5†††††††††        A#5†††††††††††††† C7
I wish I had a nickel now for every time a cuss word flew

Dm7
Madhouse all topsy turvy
Dm7
A ship of fools with scurvy
C7
I donít like a thing about the way we live

C7
Momaís on the pavement with a broken arm
C7
Telliní everybody daddy meant no harm
C7
Talk about denial with a great big D
C7
You can try to fool the neighbours but you canít fool me
     F5A#5††††††††††     	    F5†††††††††            A#5††††††† C7
I wish some kind of millionaire would come adopt me on the spot

Dm7
Madhouse all topsy turvy
Dm7
A ship of fools with scurvy
C7
I donít like a thing about the way we live


G5
Police knock on our door
G5
Theyíve seen it all before
F5
Why donít you use restraint
Eb5
Weíve had a few complaints

       C7
Now all the women up and down the block
C7
Are tuning out the static with the front door locked
C7
They greet us in the morning with a wave and grin
C7
But you know theyíre only waiting til the roof caves in
F5		A#5†††††††     	 F5††††††††              A#5†††††††† C7
I donít even know if we can make it through another day

Dm7
Madhouse all topsy turvy
Dm7
A ship of fools with scurvy
C7
I donít like a thing about the way we live
C7
I donít like a thing about the way we live
C7
I donít like a thing about the way we live
C7
I donít like a thing about the way we live
C7
I donít like a thing about the way we live
C7
I donít like a thing about the way we live
