C/E  D/F#  G                                                     C
I've spent five years in prison and you seldom even visit but you do
    G                                                          C
You tell me you don't care, the lipstick that you wear tells me you do
    G                                                        C    
The papers you wont sign, the empty dotted line, they're the reason you wont say we're through
      G                                                          C
Cause deep inside you're mine, if you dig you're gonna find that all I did I did for you
C                              G
Wait and see I'm holdin' on for you
   C                                          G
Be five more years and I'll take you somewhere new
And if you change your heart and find another
      C                          C#m7b5 
I will bend these bars to get to you my lover
          G                 D             C   G C/G G
It takes a fool to do but a fool I am for you

[Verse 2]
  G                                                           C
A fool you called it rightly, prison suits you nicely, yes it's true
     G                                                         C
It's not the ring I care for, it's just to have you there for me, it's true
They caught you stealin' jewelry, thought that you could fool me
you thought you fooled me last time too
  G                                                    C
Three repeat offenses, ten years on your sentence I'll see you when a decade's through
C                                 G
Fine by me but I'm holdin' out for you
C                                          G
Five years here and I'm bound for somewhere new
And if I steal away and they should catch me runnin'
       C                           C#m7b5 
I would sorely hope that you would be there gunnin'
          G                 D             C   G C/G G
It takes a fool to do but a fool I am for you

G  C  G  C (boom-chuck on root and fifth)

[Verse 3]
     G                                                               C
Five years left on my sentence and I felt I'd served my penance so I tunneled my way through the wall
    G                                                               C 
You showed up lookin' dirty, I said "You're five years early, it's dinner time, you should have called."
   G                                               C
My chariot's a Pinto, ignore the broken window and then the pistol, baby doll.
     G                                             C
"You must be crazy, prison's made you lazy cause a pistol cant do nothin' at all."
C                                  G
Take my hand I'm still in love with you
     C                                           G
With five years there and I'll take you somewhere new
And if we burn the bridge over troubled water
       C                             C#m7b5 
I would steal the change it takes to call your father(mother)
          G                 D             C   G C/G G
It takes a fool to do but a fool I am for you
          G                 D             C   G C/G G  D/F# G
It takes a fool to do but a fool I am for you
