 You met him at the dance hall
 You [D]only saw his charms
 You [C]said he really swept you off your [G]feet
 
 Then one night heís drinking
 and [D]jealousy enraged
 He [C]knocked out two of your front [G]teeth
 
 [G]so you came over to [D]hide out at my place
 [C]I guess I should have killed him there and [G]then
 [G]but you begged me not to
 [D]now you say heís changed
 and [C]youíre gonna go back to [G]him
 
 [G]Donít give me that bull about [D]how itís for the children
 [C]A man like that could never be a [G]dad
 [G]What happens when he kills you?
 [D]What will they do then?
 [C]Sometimes you ought to ask yourself [G]that
 
 [C]Donít go back to him heís a [G]wife beater
 Youíd[D] be better off with this [G]potato eater
 [C]You say heís changed, donít [G]be a [Em]fool
 [G]A man like thatís no [D]good for [G]you
 [G]A man like thatís no [D]good for [G]you
