Capo on first!

C                   G                          Am-G-F
Looking back now, I probably should've let him run

   Am
He smelled like gin with a hint of her
C
Up 'til then I wasn't sure
      G                                                 D
But he swaggered by and said "The boys said to tell you hey"
          Am
And I was kicked back in his easy chair
C
Holding a fifth tapping the barrel
           G                               D
Of a fresh cleaned steel blue polished up .38
F
And I was kind of hoping he'd at least look scared
But all he said was "Okay, she was good and you don't dare"


C                  G                      Am  F
Looking back now I probably should've let him run
C            G                 Am F
Paybacks are hell where I come from
        C
And any fool should now
          G                   Am
You don't look a woman in the eye and smile
     F                     D
When she knows what you've done
          F
And she's holding whiskey and a gun


         Am      
Well the sun shines gray in the prison yard
C
Life to go was going hard
          G                              D
When the warden started getting sweet on me
       Am
And he drug me to his room one night
    C
And poured me some 'skey gave me a light
    G                                    D
And I smoked slow and waited 'til he was done
    F
And I thought that was that 'til he got rough and I fought back
And when I grabbed his pistol he laughed and said
"Girl you ain't got the guts"

C                  G                      Am  F
Looking back now I probably should've let him run
C            G                 Am F
Paybacks are hell where I come from
        C
And any fool should now
          G                   Am
You don't look a woman in the eye and smile
     F                     D
When she knows what you've done
          F
And she's holding whiskey and a gun


        Am
They're strapping me down and I'm scared to die
      C
Now I ain't the kind of girl to cry
      G                           D
But I find myself begging God for mercy
   Am
My hands are cold as I start to slip
C
Sodium theopentol drips
    G                               D
The room goes black and I wonder if He heard me

C                  G                      Am  F
Looking back now I probably should've let him run
C                  G                 Am F
I bet paybacks are hell where I come from
        C
And any fool should now
          G                   Am
You don't look a woman in the eye and smile
     F                     D
When she knows what you've done
          F
And she's holding whiskey and a gun
               C G Am F
Whiskey and a gun
               C G Am F
Whiskey and a gun
               C G Am F
Whiskey and a gun
