C                         D
Helen’s got a good job at Kroger’s
F                 G             C 
Handlin’ people’s money all day long
C                            D  
Maybe she will give me a few dollars
F              G           C
Just enough to get my body stoned

Cause if whiskey sold for 30 cents a gallon
Buddy , I couldn’t buy a quart
I guess I’ll have to go on home to Helen
But Helen may not want me anymore

F              G          C
Lord I hate to do this to Helen
      F              G           C
Cause Helen loves me when nobody don’t
    F            G                C         
But if I keep on playin’ with her feelin’s
F                G           C
I got a feelin’, someday she won’t

Key Change to D

D                                   E
She said come on it, you’re lookin’ thinner
     G              A              D
I’ve never seen you this bad off before
  D                                E 
I shouted “Shee” and set myself to dinner
G               A                  D 
Then we quietly closed the bedroom door

Next mornin’ I found a note on the table
With a big $10 bill pinned inside
I hope and pray someday you’ll whip that devil
And be the kind of man you were last night
