Capo: III (Clive uses an open Bm7 shape mostly in this, like a B7 with the second finger taken off so the open D gives the minor third) INTRO: Em – Cma7 - Em – Cma7 – Bm7 – G - Bm7 – G - D – D(C) – D(B) – D(A) Am D Bm7 Em7 Now this is the deal, an iron will and nerves of steel Am D Bm7 Em7 A silver tongue, a sterling heart, a clear head when the trouble starts Am D Bm7 Em7 As love turns to fear she flinches every time he's near Am D G The mystery is all too real, this is the deal Am D Bm7 Em7 Here is the catch, a man who's never met his match Am D Bm7 Em7 Swears that might is always right, won't give up without a fight Am D Bm7 Em7 Who can't hold his drink, who never even tries to think Am D G The cellar door is off the latch, here is the catch F C Cm G Punch bag or sleeping bag, is there any choice Am D She must pay attention when she hears her master's voice F C Cm G And though the kids are sleeping with their fingers in their ears Am D They recognise their father laughing at their mother's tears Am D Bm7 Em7 Between the blows, a blackened eye, a bloody nose Am D Bm7 Em7 Tries to hold a shaking hand, tries her best to understand Am D Bm7 Em7 Between the sheets he makes demands she tries to meet Am D G She turns the thorn into a rose between the blows INSTR VERSE F C Cm G No second honeymoon, no seven year itch Am D Spends their anniversaries face down in a ditch F C Cm G No birthday celebrations, no holiday each year Am D No ceasefire at Christmas when he drowns himself in beer Am D Bm7 Em7 So this is the deal, another day another meal Am D Bm7 Em7 Another night sat by the phone, it hurts her less to be alone Am D Bm7 Em7 Is this married life, what does it take to be a wife? Am D G A butterfly tied to a wheel, this is the deal Am D G An iron will and nerves of steel, this is the deal Am D Em7 The mystery is all too real, this is the deal.
