An acoustic guitar plays straight chords and accompanies the vocals:

[Verse 1]
                           D
                Well I'd rather see you dead little girl
                        Bm
                Than to be with another man
                      D
                You better keep your head little girl
                        Bm
                Or you won't know where I am

[Chorus]                                             E
                You better run for your life if you can little girl
                 Bm                    E
                Hide your head in the sand little girl
                 Bm                     G  
                Catch you with another man
                 F#        Bm               D
                That's the end little girl.

[Verse 2]
                          D
                Well you know that I'm a wicked guy
                           Bm
                And I was born with a jealous mind
                    D
                And I can spend my whole life
                                Bm
                Tryin' just to make you tow the line.
        
[Chorus]
                                                     E
                You better run for your life if you can little girl
                 Bm                    E
                Hide your head in the sand little girl
                 Bm                     G
                Catch you with another man
                 F#        Bm               D
                That's the end little girl.
