G
Alimony alimony
C                        A7
Work till my fingers are bloody and boney
G           E7
Me oh my oh goodness sake
    A7         D     G
I'm paying for my mistake

G
Alimony, I call it alimoney
C                   A7
You married men may think it funny
     G                E7
Till one fine day you awake
                A7         D       G
And find you're paying for your mistake

Bridge:
D                   G
Every Friday when I get my pay
  D                         G
I put it in an envelope and mail it away
D                    G
Same old song with a little more blues in it
A7                      D
I'm paying for it while someone else is using it

G
Alimony alimony
C                                   A7
I thought I bought steak and it was all baloney
G           E7
Me oh my oh goodness sake
    A7         D     G
I'm paying for my mistake

Solo


Key change to A 

A
Alimony alimony
D                                   B7
I thought I bought steak and it was all baloney
A           F#7
Me oh my oh goodness sake
    B7         E     A           F#7
I'm paying for my mistake, every payday
B7         E     A
Paying for my mistake, yes I am
