        THE PILL   Loretta Lynn

      F           Bb                       F
You wined me and dined me when I was your girl
(F)                                              C
Promised if I'd be your wife you'd show me the world
F                     Bb                                   F
But all I've seen of this old world is a bed and a doctor bill
(F)                                   C                      F
I'm tearing down your brooder house cause now I've got the pill
(F)                      Bb                                 F
All these years I've stayed at home while you had all your fun
(F)                                           C
And every year that's gone by another baby's come
           F            Bb                                F                       
There's gonna be some changes made right here on nursery hill
(F)                                           C                F
You've set this chicken your last time cause now I've got the pill
C                                     Bb            F  
This old maturity dress I've got is going in the garbage
      C                               Bb                    C
The clothes I'm wearing from now on won't take up so much yardage
F            Bb                                 F
Mini skirts hots pants and a few little fancy frills
(F)                                      C                 F
Yea, I'm making up for all those years since I've got the pill

key change
F#                     B                           F#
I'm tire of all your crowing how you and your hen play
(F#)                                                C#
While holding a couple in my arms another's on the way
F#                    B                                       F#
This chicken's done tore up her nest and I'm ready to make a deal
(F#)                                            C#                F#  
And you can't afford to turn it down cause you know I've got the pill
 C#                             B                      F#        
This incuberator is over used because you've kept it filled
      C#                         B                  C#
The feeling good comes easy now since I've got the pill
F#                        B                                   F#
It's getting dark it's roosting time tonight's to good to be real
(F#)                                     C#             F#
Aw but Daddy don't you worry none cause Mama's got the pill

Oh Daddy don't you worry now cause Mama's got the pill
