    D                              A
You met him at the dance hall, you only saw his charms
    G                                D
You said he really swept you off your feet
D                                A
Then one night heís drinking and jealousy enraged
   G                             D
He knocked out two of your front teeth

D                   A
So you came over to hide out at my place
  G                                       D
I guess I should have killed him there and then
D                        A
but you begged me not to now you say heís changed
G                           D
and youíre gonna go back to him

      D                       A
Donít give me that bull about how itís for the children
  G                              D
A man like that could never be a dad
     D                          A
What happens when he kills you, what will they do then?
G                      D
Sometimes you ought to ask yourself that

         G                  D
Donít go back to him heís a wife beater
A                               D   
Youíd be better off with this potato eater
   G                        D    Bm  
He says heís changed, donít be a fool
  D                  A        D
A man like thatís no good for you
  D                  A        D 
A man like thatís no good for you
