N.B.
Please IGNORE ANY POP-UP CHORD BOXES the website
might automatically suggest and use the typed shapes
shown below:

Em     = 022000   B  = 799877   D  = xx0232   E7    = 022130
Emadd9 = 022002   B7 = 797877   D7 = xx0212   G6    = xx5430
Em *   = 022003   A  = 577655   E  = 022100   G     = xx5433
                  A7 = 575655   E6 = 022120   F     = xx3211
                                              Fadd9 = xx3213

The Fadd9 is optional, you could just stay on the F major,
as it's only suggested by the bass playing a G over the F chord
at that point.

|  /  /  /   /  |  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /   /  |  /  /  /  /  |


[Verse 1]
 Em                Emadd9         Em *     Emadd9
He's got his work,        ...and she comes easy,
      Em           Emadd9         Em *
They each come a - round when the other is gone,
Em           Emadd9        Em *   Emadd9   Em  Emadd9  Em *
Me, I think I got stuck somewhere in bet - ween,
    Em            Emadd9    Em *       Emadd9
I wouldn't confide in the prodigal son,
    Em           Emadd9     Em *
The dye has been cast, the battle is won,
     Em          Emadd9     Em *         Emadd9
The bullets were blanks, a double locked gun,
   Em          Emadd9       Em *
I couldn't ad - mit to a minute of fun!


[Verse 2]
   Emadd9  B            B7

I ac - cept - ed with the gent - le tongue,
B          B7   B    A       A7 A          D         D7 D G6 
No words spo - ken,   ...no need, ...it's skipped!


[Verse 3 ]
 Em        Emadd9  Em *         Emadd9
Take it, ...stomp twice, ring the bell,
 Em              Emadd9  Em *
Tether that ring - ing phrase,
     Em            Emadd9     Em *      Emadd9
E - nough with the rifle and talk, al - ready,
    Em          Emadd9 Em *
We all know what  it  means,
 Em                  Emadd9     Em *        Emadd9
Take this conversation to your great divide,
Em                Emadd9  Em *
I can only swal - low ...what I ate,
       Em       Emadd9       Em * Emadd9
And I don't hate     ...him, 
       Em       Emadd9       Em * 
And I don't hate     ...her!


[Verse 4]
Emadd9  B             B7
 They come, and they come,
     B    A              A7   A
And they come, and they come,
D       D7    D            E     E6   E7    E
I ac - cept - ed with the gent - le tongue,
B          B7    B    A       A7  A          D     D7 D
No hearts bro - ken,   ...no need, ...it's skipped!
