Chords transcribed by Rob Tomeldan

Intro: Em/D-C-Em/D-C
       Em-D-C-D pause
  
        D/Db
She's a great little housewife
                     Bm               D      
Though sometimes she talks like a fool
                     G                    Gbm
But she helps at the store in the holiday rush
B                    Em               A
And she picks up the kids after school
D/Am                  G                            Ab/G
And she puts down the phone when her husband comes home
                     Gbm            B
And she changes from mother to wife
                         Em                   A
'Til she feels the words hanging between them
                     D
And she hangs by her words to her life

 Db/D   Bm                         Gbm 
She says I swear I love my husband, I love my kids
  Bm                   Gbm     Dbm/Gbm
I wanted to be like my mother
         G                 A        
But if I hadn't done it as soon as I did
         Bm                            Am
Oh there might have been time to be me
Dm/Am     G         Gbm
For myself, for myself
        Em                  D   C     
There's so many things that she wishes
    Em                   D     C      
She don't even know what she's missin'
    D                             Em-D-C-D     
And that's how she knows that she missed

        D/Db
She's a sweetheart, except when she's moody
                 Bm                 D      
It's hard to get through to her then
               G                            Gbm
Depressed for a while when the youngest was born
       B           Em            A
Oh but that happens now and again
   D/Am          G                        Ab/G
She might take a drink with the housework
                       Gbm             B
Or when Michael's kept late at the shop
             Em                A
A Martini or two before dinner
               D
But she always knows when to stop

  Db/D  Bm                         Gbm 
She says I swear I love my husband and I love my kids
           Bm                   Gbm     Dbm/Gbm
You know I wanted to be like my mother
         G                 A        
But if I hadn't done it as soon as I did
         Bm                            Am
Oh there might have been time to be me
Dm/Am     G         Gbm
For myself, for myself
        Em                  D   C
There's so many things that she wishes
    Em                   D     C      
She don't even know what she's missin'
    D                             Em-D-C-D     
And that's how she knows that she missed

        D/Db
Oh they used to hold hands at the movies
                  Bm            D      
Now it's seldom if ever they go
                         G                    Gbm
Once you've paid for the sitter and parkin' the car
        B        Em                A
There's no money left for the show
        D/Am      G                            
She was doing the dishes
       Ab/G                       Gbm   B
When a glass fell and broke on the tile
                Em                   A
And she cut her wrist (quite by mistake)
                      D
It was real touch and go for a while

    Db/D Bm                      Gbm 
She says Oh God I love my husband and I love my kids
           Bm                       Gbm   Dbm/Gbm
You know I wanted to be like my, my mother
         G                 A        
But if I hadn't done it as soon as I did
         Bm                         Am
Oh there might have been time to be me
Dm/Am  G         Gbm
For myself, for myself
        Em                  D   C
There's so many things that she wishes
    Em                   D     C      
She don't even know what she's missin'
    D                            Em-D-C-D-C-D-Em            
And that's how she knows that she missed
