Capo 1st Fret


Am        Dm
Times are hard
       G                 C
You’re afraid to pay the fee
       F             Bb
So you find yourself somebody
        C              G
Who can do the job for free
         Am            Dm
When you need a bit of lovin’
           G             C
Cause your man is out of town
           F               Bb
That’s the time you get me runnin’
        C             Dm       C
And you know I’ll be around


      F               Am
I’m a fool to do your dirty work
   Bb     C
Oh yeah
        F             Am
I don’t wanna do your dirty work
   Bb   C
No more
      F               Am
I’m a fool to do your dirty work
   Bb    C   F
Oh yeah


Am        Dm
Light the candle
        G             C
Put the lock upon the door
         F                  Bb
You have sent the maid home early
       C              G
Like a thousand times before
         Am            Dm
Like the castle in its corner
     G        C
In a medieval game
      F            Bb
I foresee terrible trouble
      C                  Dm     C
And I stay here just the same


[Sax Solo]
 G Em G Em F G C
