I know DBT tunes down but I always try to make it fit a standard tuning which requires a capo and

She'd make sure he had everything he needed and hug his neck and tell him how much she loved him
and it was beautiful, you should have seen it
Then she'd make herself a pot of coffee, just the way she liked it

Just a couple of beers and a couple of minutes to cuss about his day
So she'd fix him a nice hot supper

And she never once told him what he was going on about didn't add up to a thing.
And she never touched that gun in the closet.
It was his and it was there just because he wanted it to be.

She didn't get out much, so she never knew just what it was that made him so afraid
Most women today would say she was a disgrace, most men would say she wasn't much to look at
And they'd all would say she'd be a lot better off if she cared a little bit more about what they all think
She could have a life of her own if she had a little pride,
some silicone implants and another man on the side
But she's got a loaded gun in the closet.
And it's there anytime she wants it.

And her one and only man knows it and that's why he put it there in the first place
