'Reciprocity' by Loudon Wainwright III.

This is tabbed from a live version performed on the BBC TV show 'The Old Grey Whistle 
Test' in 1977 (footage of which I found on YouTube). The song first appeared on the 1976 
album 'T-shirt'.

G/B = x20010
Am7/G = 302010
D7sus4/F# = 200213

C          G/B        Am
  They got drunk last night
      C          G/B      Am
Had a knockdown, drag-out fight
D                      G
She was determined and he saw it his way
D                      G
He threw a tantrum and she threw an ashtray
C          G/B        Am     Am7/G D7sus4/F#
  They got drunk last night

How's this for a "How do you do?"
He's unfaithful, she's untrue
They're their own masters and they're their own bosses
They reserve the right to employ double crosses
How's this for a fine "How do you do?"

You'd need a chair and a whip
To control their relationship
Once they were lovers and practically best friends
Now he's into bondage and she's into revenge
You would need a chair and a whip

And if one of them should die
I suppose that the other would cry
There would be tears of sorrow and great grief
Or else there would be tears of release and relief
If one of them should die
