VERSE 1:
A
You serve me and I'll serve you,
                         G       E
Swing your partners, all get screwed.
A
Bring your lawyer and I'll bring mine,
                           G       E7
Get together, and we could have a bad time.       


VERSE 2:
A
It's affidavit swearing time,
               G      E
Sign it on the dotted line.
A
Hold your Bible in your hand,
                                G           E7
Now all that's left, is to find yourself a new band.

Court receiver, laughs and thrills,

Notes.
1. An early demo of the song exists and clearly reveals the 'Open E' tuning. 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qeMnRVHZf0
2. Regarding the song's square-dance theme, [Leng] suggests that folk dancing's 
cycle of about-turns and to-and-fro movement reminded Harrison of the Beatles' 
"seemingly endless, and pointless, legal orbits around one another" in the early 
70's.
