[Intro]
        A    D/A      E/A      D/A   E/A D/A

[Verse 1]
A              D/A   E/A      D/A   E/A    D/A    A  D/A   E/A D/A E/A D/A
   Many people    ...tell you that they're your friend,
           A              D/A
You be - lieve them, you need them,
E/A        D/A    E/A   D/A   A       D/A     E/A D/A E/A D/A
      For what's 'round the river bend,
  E                          D4        Dsus2  D         A  D/A   E/A D/A E/A D/A
Make sure that you're re - ceiving the sig - nals they send,
          E              D4       D  Dsus2     A   D/A    E/A D/A E/A D/A
'Cause, brother, you've only got two hands to lend!


[Verse 2]
A        D/A             E/A   D/A  E/A  D/A  A  D/A    E/A D/A E/A D/A
   Maybe,   ...there's someone who makes you weep,
      A              D/A         E/A
And some nights they loom up a - head,
D/A   E/A  D/A    A   D/A    E/A D/A E/A D/A
When you're a - sleep,
E                       D4            D   Dsus2        A  D/A   E/A D/A E/A D/A
   Some days, there's things on your mind you should keep,
E                    D4        D   Dsus2    A  D/A     E/A D/A E/A D/A
   Sometimes, it's tougher to look than to leap!


[Chorus]
 A       E4  E       D4          D  Dsus2     A       D/A   E/A D/A E/A D/A
(Oo, oo, oo -oo!)  Better watch out for the skin deep,
 A       E4  E       D4          D  Dsus2     A       D/A   E/A D/A E/A D/A
(Oo, oo, oo -oo!)  Better watch out for the skin deep,
 E  E5 E  D                 E            E5  E       D
             (Better watch out!)  Watch out for the skin deep,
               E            E5  E        D
(Better watch out!)  Watch out for the skin deep,
  D4          D  Dsus2    A       D/A   E/A D/A E/A D/A
Better watch out for the skin deep!

   One day  ...the track that you're climb - ing gets steep,
           A                  D/A
Your e - motions are frayed,
           E/A      D/A     E/A D/A   A  D/A    E/A D/A E/A D/A
And your nerves are start - ing  to creep,
            E                  D4          D   Dsus2    A  D/A   E/A D/A E/A D/A
Just re - member the day's as long as the time that you keep,
E                 D4          D  Dsus2    A       D/A    E/A D/A E/A D/A
   Brother, you better watch out for the skin deep!

               E            E5  E        D
(Better watch out!)  Watch out for the skin deep,
  D4          D  Dsus2    A       D/A   E/A D/A E/A D/A
Better watch out for the skin deep!


[Chorus]
 E  E5 E  D                 E            E5  E       D
             (Better watch out!)  Watch out for the skin deep,

Better watch out for the skin deep!
