Bonnie Raitt plays it different than John Prine, here is how she plays it. I
can't figure out the chord in the last part of the chorus, so I just put a ?. I 
just play it as a G but that's not what it is in the song. Enjoy!

Standard tuning, capo 2

(Repeat verses and chorus as before)

When I was a young girl well, I had me a cowboy
He werent much to look at, just free rambling man
But that was a long time and no matter how I try
The years just flow by like a broken down dam.

Repeat chorus:

Theres flies in the kitchen I can hear em there buzzing
And I aint done nothing since I woke up today.
How the hell can a person go to work in the morning
And come home in the evening and have nothing to say.

Repeat chorus
