From her new album, Acid Tongue, and featuring Elvis Costello. I did my best, cheers.

G                          C        D
They come to town when the war is over
G                  C            D
Dirty boots in the middle of the night
G                  C              D
Trolling the bars, hitting on the soldiers
G                D        G 
Boys give it up without a fight
G          G            C      D 
They say, “Hey, boy, how about your place?
G                        C       D
I know you really want to take me home”
G                        C      D
Drop the bags off on the bedroom floor
G                         D   G
They make love with the lights on, saying

C                    G
“I’m a carpetbagger, baby
C                  G
I’m coming to your town
C
I’m going to treat you kind (woo-hoo)
G
I’m going to rob you blind (woo-hoo)
D
I’ll smile all the time
      G    C D
Whoa, yeah
      G    C D
Whoa, yeah
      G    C D
Whoa, yeah
G    D G

G                        C          D
Sally could have had any one of the boys
       G                              C          D
But she couldn’t love no one she could not control
G                  C        D
Friend of mine and her got married
G                          D       G
I don’t hear too much from them anymore
G                     C            D
Last I heard, he had a rope around his neck
G                   C        D
Dragging around the grocery store
G                     C                D
Carrying her bags and pushing down the aisles
              G                      D        G
Saying, “I ain’t got no home in this world anymore”


C                    G
“I’m a carpetbagger, baby
C                  G
I’m coming to your town
C
I’m going to treat you kind (woo-hoo)
G
I’m going to rob you blind (woo-hoo)
D
I’ll smile all the time
      G    C D
Whoa, yeah
      G    C D
Whoa, yeah
      G    C D
Whoa, yeah
G    D G

G                          C         D
They come to town when the party’s over
G                      C            D
Books been written and truths been tried
G                          C           D
They’ll take it all if the door’s left open
G                          D         G
Steal the nose right from under your eyes


C                    G
Singing, “I’m a carpetbagger, baby
C                  G
I’m coming to your town
C
I’m going to treat you kind (woo-hoo)
G
I’m going to rob you blind (woo-hoo)
D
I’ll smile all the time
      G    C D
Whoa, yeah
      G    C D
Whoa, yeah
      G    C D
Whoa, yeah
G    D G
