Bb                                           Eb     Bb
She used to call me baby, I thought she was such a lady
    Eb                    Bb                  F  
But my how things have changed since timeís moved on
     Bb                                     Eb      Bb 
Iíd give her my last dollar, now all sheíll do is holler
        Eb          Bb       F     Bb    (key change) F#

B                                               E      B 
Iíve learned she can resist me by the way she always disses me
      E               B                        F#   
And comes to bed at night with that cold cream on 
       B                                             E         B  
Some-times I might feel frisky, but these days itís just too risky

Itís hard to kiss the lips at night that chew your ass out all day long

All day long, it goes on and on
      C#                                                    F
If a tree fell in the forest, she didnít hear it, would I still be wrong
    B                                       E        B
I guess I should admit it, she ainít ever gonna quit it
      E                B                            F#               B

                     F                       C 
God you oughta see  whatís happened to her hiny (her what?) (her hiney)
            F                     C                    G

(Rodney - a small plane?) (Vince - Iím tellingí ya)
C                                                         F             C  
I used to roll her in the clover (mmm mm) but thank God those days are over (think liberty)
       F                C                           G                C
Itís hard to kiss the lips at night that chew your ass out all day long
          G                    C
All day long, she goes on and on
       D                                    G
If someday they drop the big one, Iíd say "Sweet Jesus, sheís gonna finally leave me alone"
           C                               F            C
