          G                                                     Am7
We've talked it to death, cryin' on the telephone.
                                        C
Nights when he drinks at home, 
        D                                            G/Am7-D/
she has to whisper throught her tears.
G

                                                                          Am7
"Johnny," she says, "you'd never do these things to me."
                                        C          D              
              Em/E
But I can never make her see he's wasted such precious years.
                 Am7                               D            G
Well, "you married the wrong guy" is all I ever say.


CHORUS

G                     E           Am                    Ab+
He's a no good so and so, but she'll never let him go.
                     D
                                                      G
Though she knows it will never work, she loves the jerk.
C                      G/Am7-D/  
She loves the jerk.

2nd Verse

G                                                     Am7
He was the guy always out on the make.
                                   C          D
                                 G/Am7-D/
I guess he had what it takes to turn the heads of pretty girls.
       G

                                                                          Am7
She thought he would change; the worst of us will settle down.
                                          C          D
                              Em/E
But he couldn't stay out of town, not even with this precious pearl.
               Am7                                D
                         G               
Now she lives with the lies and the bumps and the bruises.

REPEAT CHORUS, THEN BRIDGE

Well, I hang up the phone and I pretend she's in my arms.
C                      B7                    Em
What I wouldn't give for just one-tenth 
                    D                            E   (Key modulates from G to

of what she gives Mister Charming.
