Why Don’t You Try Me—Ry Cooder

E                       B          A                   E 
If your man has got you on the run why don't you try me ?  
E                    B                    A                  E 
If you wanna have a little fun, oh baby, why don't you try me ?  
E                B                  A                     E 
If you got more than you can bear, if your troubles been more than your share  
E                       B               A                   E 
And if things are not going just right why don't you try a man like me tonight ?  
 

E                 B 
Why don't you try me tonight ?  
A                 E 
Why don't you try me ?  
E                 B  
Why don't you try me tonight ?  
A                 E 
Why don't you try me ?  

E                      B
Last night while I was trying to sleep
A                              E  
I heard a racket from the room next door, hum  
E                             B
And that was you and your man havin' a fight 
A                        E 
Like you've done so many nights before  
E                                     B 
"Woman, I'll turn you every which way but loose"  
A                   E
Is what I heard him shout, uh-oh, look out!  
E                                B
So I jumped out of the bed and I opened the door  
A                        E
Just as you came runnin' out  

                E                 B
And I hollered: why don't you try me tonight ?  
A                 E
Why don't you try me ?  
E                 B
Why don't you try me tonight ?  
A                 E
Why don't you try me ?  




E                           B
I ain't saying I'm all that you need 
A                                     E 
And I won't tell you, honey, you will be free
E                           B  
But all night, well, I will keep trying  
A                                            E
And when I say I want ya, girl, you know I'm not lyin' 
E                               B 
You see a good woman out on the streets these days, friends
A                               E  
Ah, a bad old man can't be hard to find, no, no  
E                            B
Kind of man who'd steal your heart  
A                    E
And call true love a crime  

n/c                             
That's why I keep asking ya, baby
E                    B  
Why don't you try me tonight ?
n/c 
Do yourself a favor  
A                 E
Why don't you try me ? 
E                          B
Regular man ain't treatin' you right  
A                            B
Why don't you try a man like me tonight ?
A                 E  
Why don't you try me ?  
E                            B
Why don't you try a man like me tonight ?  
A                 E
Why don't you try me ?

Note that in the end Ry is yelling in dutch: "Doe niet zo gemeen!", wich means something like: "Don't you be so mean!" It appears Ry had a Dutch girlfriend by the time he recorded the song.
