Intro (Repeat a few times):

        C                           G C/G
I had a hard run, runnin' from your window
                C                                      G C/G
I was all night runnin', runnin', Lord I wonder if you care
        C                      G       C/G
I had a run in, run around and run down
               C                                       G C/G
Run around the corner, corner, Lord I run smack into a tree

         C     D     Am            G D 
I had to move, move, really had to move
C                 G            D              C    
That's why uf you please, I am on my hand and knees
Am                           C    C/G     
Bertha don't you come around here anymore

                  C                           G C/G
Dressed myself in green, I went down unto the sea
                        C                             G C/G
Try to see what's goin' down, try to read between the lines
                      C                                   G C/G
I had a feelin' I was fallin', fallin, I turned around to see
              C                              G C/G
Heard a voice callin', you were comin' after me


           C                                    G C/G
Ran into a rainstorm, I ducked back into a bar door
               C                                         G C/G
It's all night pourin', pourin', Lord but not a drop on me
         C                                G       C/G
Test me, test me, test me, why don't you arrest me
                  C                                   G C/G
Throw me into the jail house, Lord until the sun goes down

(Chorus - Repeat a few times)
     G              C/G

Use bar chords and bounce the C off the G and it will sound like the recording. The chords for the first line of the chorus should be D, C, G, G-C-D. The last word of the chorus should be G, with the G-C-G bounce.

I play the G chord using my pinky and bounce of a C chord with a g on the high e string. It sounds good and is actually really easy. I play the C chord like this.
